A feeling of warmth creates a kind of openness.
You'll find that all human beings are just like you.

lotus pages...

This started off with an acrylic background created randomly and I decided at one stage to complete it by "pulling" out the lotusses from the background and covered the upper half with gesso and water color. It took me a while to pick up the courage to paint an object (directly with paint)...;) I played with my waterbrushes, which are pretty handy to pack them in the journaling on- the- go pack.

I wanted to be reminded today of the "spiritual dimension" as I meditate upon the daily happenings and find peace...

"C" is for Compassion

"By feeling gratitude towards life,
I move towards light, wholeness, universal energy, love.
I move beyond the bounds of my own life and discover
that I am an expression or form of universal life, of divine energy"

Arnaud Desjardin

What dream do you wish to explore?

Jamie Ridler on Wishcasting Wednesday asked this question and I thought hard about it.....not that I have no dreams, but I have for a long while put aside my dreams for my full time job which I so love.
The time has now come for me to explore POSSIBILITIES, and perhaps "do the things that scares me the most and rediscover my freedom, my worth and my creative spirit" (Kelly Rae Roberts)...
