Words......



Humankind has not woven the web of life.  We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do the the web, we do to ourselves.  All things are bound together.
All things connect.

Sunday Prayer

Pixie has been offering up a prayer every Sunday.  I have decided to join her.


Mother Earth,


Thank you.  Thank you for your body that we call home.   Thank you for
providing sustenance for our bodies and beauty for our souls.


Forgive us.  Forgive us our ignorance and arrogance - we've lost our way
and forgotten who we truly are.


Help us.  Help us to remember who we are and the reasons for our journey
here.  Help us to live in harmony with you, with each other and with the
other creatures in your world.


                                               In loving reverence I pray.....

Happy Birthdday to me! or Here we go again....

Not only is it the first day of the new year....it's also my birthday,
which (in my mind) makes this day extremely powerful.  I do
have big plans for the year ahead and am hoping to commit more
of myself to this online journey.

I am not a writer and struggle to post here on a regular basis.  I have
considered packing it up and going home, but something tells me I
should be doing this. 

2013 was not a bad year - but I didn't spend it creatively and have
realized that I need that outlet in more ways than I knew.   I see
that my bad art** and sometimes boring posts are necessary for
my growth not only as an artist, but also as a person. 

So, along with the usual "resolutions" we all claim at this time of year,
my word for this year is Forward as that is the direction I am headed
in!

**I have a theory that you have to create a lot of bad art and get it out
of the way before you can create good art.
