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.

  5. These are wonderful! I love the first one. It reminds me of the wheels on my hubbys truck. :)
    Happy Belated Birthday!
    Many blessings to you.

  6. Those reflections are really appealing... The first one is quite amazinf, cause it mute some ordinary object into a solar symbol... And the colors so dark on the second one are very impressive... Thanks for this inspring sharing !

  8. Lovely reflections, Laura! I like the water rings with the wheel and the glass-smoothness of the sky/tree image.

  9. Belated happy birthday greetings.

    So know what you mean about stairs.
    All of a sudden I think of them in the language of toddlers: Climbing the wooden hill.
    I used to climb them 52 times a day in a row (a pack of cards deposited one by one on the landing) as a training period for our climbing holidays.
    Now I have to hang on to the banisters and pull myself up :-)
    Like you say grateful memories help.
    It is amazing to learn that our mind can adapt to our body's failings.

    Like the tree silhouette in the icy puddle.

  10. two good captures ... and such nice colours too !

  11. Very nice! the effect on the car wheel is really nice!

  12. Lovely reflections. A belated happy birthday, too!

  13. Great reflections - very well-framed shots.

  14. Hi Laura!
    Your puddle photos are wonderful... The second one is stunning and the first kept my attention for a while with the wheel reflection in it!
    Happy Birthday to you!
    Your birthday post shows so much gratitude and grace ~ so beautiful to read!
    Thank you for stopping by my blog too! I hope you have a sweet weekend*
    Blessings to you,

  15. Gorgeous photos! I've fallen behind on reading the blogs so I missed your birthday. I hope you had a wonderful day and fantastic birthday year!

  16. I missed your B-Day! Well at least I didn't miss your blessing in the world.

    Beautiful photos, beautiful life, beatiful you

  17. I like the second one, Laura. It reminds me that even when things look dark, and what I see is downwards, I need only look up to my Creator to find light and beauty.

  18. Excellent capture of the reflections - beauty found in unexpected places!

  19. Magnifiques photos!

  20. I like the reflection of the wheel, it's very dreamy. The branch casts a dark (not in the evil sense) mood.

  21. Your top image seems to be getting favored more, but I like the textures and lines in the second one.
