Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Ice Blue Sky

It is astonishing, how blue the sky appears after a storm has passed. I love how it is reflected in yet another shimmering icicle. What a blessing to experience winter slowly, gazing through the lens of a camera and the eyes of the heart.

  3. The sky here yesterday was just like that, Laura. Gorgeous photography!

    The blue was like a benediction...

  4. WOW! What a beautiful photo. Here, it is mild and foggy, with a promise of sun later today. Quite a lovely morning. Spring not far away:)

  5. So much beauty in the simplest of things when we take the time to look! Fantastic capture as always, Laura! Have a lovely weekend!

    Cold and snowy

    But never enough
    to have icicles :)

  8. Beautiful.

  11. stunning.
    and it was little overcast today for the most part, but the days are getting longer just by the most glorious bits and I'm so grateful.

  12. You have transformed forever the way I look at icicles.

  13. Incredible contemplative photo . . . thank you.

  14. The cold temperatures and weather events slow everything down in winter. I find it to be a good time to study and reflect. Each spring I emerge a bit more myself.

  15. What a wonderful way to see life: using the eyes of the heart... This is a great photo!

  16. That is beautiful in words and images, what a lovely sentiment express by such few, yet so poetic lines...
    Have a lovely weekend dear Laura,

  17. The eyes of your heart are particularly wise and deep-seeing. I love how these icicles are inspiring such beauty from you.

  18. wonderful icicle photos in this and the previous two posts! Lovely!
