And Today is a New Day!

After I read my daily tarot card, I felt a sense of hope. First of all, it is just so darned pretty (I'm certain I've never seen this one before) and the message was on que with the energy I've been putting out there. I know with all of these, you can interpret and re-interpret till your heart's content...I think I'm going to just take it at face value, and be happy for it. Happy Spring!

"The Ten of Chalices card suggests that my power today lies in completion. I celebrate and am grateful for captured moments of simple perfection. Satisfying my hearts desire connects me by example to love, beauty, pleasure, and happiness in those around me and gives me confidence to take it to the next level. "We made it." Unconditional love makes a family and home is where the heart is, so at last, I am never alone. I am empowered by gratitude and my gift is emotional fulfillment."

Black Bear

I saw you in the woods, up close, a long time ago. I saw you in clouds this past fall, and tried to understand your message. Everything I read about 'bear energy' says it's time to reflect and 'be', vs. 'do'; be meditative, trust your own intuitive feelings about your dreams and goals; be true to boundaries and spend time connecting with Mother Nature. Well, after the chaos of February, and now, continuing into March, this seems almost impossible in my life.  But when the idea for this little painted stone came to me, it was something I couldn't not do.

It's one of those simple, "1-2-3"  projects that makes me smile, and gives me purpose in my 45 minutes of solitude at the end of the day. I don't have to embark on adding to one of my 'bigger' projects - though those are beckoning constantly - and I can still feel a sense of satisfaction. I think bear will like his final resting place, very much.

Thawing Out....

I created this today and with it,
had so much more to say.
It illustrates my winning poem,
scored just the other day.
Uncertain sometimes what to write here,
for blogging to me is new;
they say it's no good to get personal,
but it's my space...can't I keep it true?
I really wanted to post the artwork,
but after the poem was up I could see
that this space of mine was perfectly fine
with just an eye and a bumblebee.
