Sacred Sunday


And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin

Opening up to possibilities.
Grateful for my eyes. Grateful for my senses. Grateful for my hands. This is what I need to feel when I don't feel so great.
When I woke this morning, I was in a bit of a funky mood. I didn't get any art done yesterday... and the "should haves" started creeping into my mind.
I ended up shopping, instead. Clay for class (had to use that coupon) and then some other things for the "home".
I went in for shower curtain liner and $98 later.......
I'm thinking it's the last time I'm hitting "the stores" except for art supplies.
I feel as if I've been bombarded with Christmas since Halloween. The stores put everything out so early... and let's face it. It's all about "the stuff".
This year, I want Presence, not Presents.
I want to be able to be in the moment, enjoying it, creating it, cherishing it. Sharing it.
I have enough "stuff" and actually would like to let go of more of it.
I went over to Masterpiece Framing to take a look at the progress of the new "studio" space I will be teaching in.
This is coming to fruition... when I saw it, my mind immediately said, "this is what you asked for" and this is what you are getting.
Thanks Universe :-)
Open to all Possibilities! The creative, peaceful and joyous ones. A studio space. Lots of storage!
Thank you, thank you , thank you................

How wonderful for you to have your own studio space...you obviously deserve it and have created this nurturing gift for yourself.

I love the photograph of you at Manchu Pichu...you look 'on top of the world'!
