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.
If you haven’t seen it yet you can view the 2013 Gratitude Quilt and a three-minute video, my contribution to the project here. Feeling the strong pull of quietude, I am entering blog silence, posting photos now and again for the rest of the month. I Heart Macro will continue.

A River of Stones: July 22
Bed covers smoothed
Sage matelesse blanket over sky blue sheets
Breakfast tray set across my lap by my beloved
Say motzi-- take a bite of toast
Exhale into a slender mug of tea
Steam rises up, the fragrance earthy, familiar
Swallow pills-Open emails
The world is filled with kind people
So many encouraging messages
Comfort washes over me
I’m ready for the home-health nurse to arrive
My favorite (they are all sweet, but she is especially dear)
The sun falls across the quilt my friend Sharon stitched with gentle hands for my birthday
It is directly in view, draped over the glider I nursed my daughters in as infants A surprise early phone call moments ago from my father My parents sister and brother-in-law are traveling in Norway My brother called early last evening to wish me well
I feel loved-Contented-Surrounded by blessing
Ready to meet this day with a grateful heart
I was interviewed recently by my blogging friend Jidhu Jose...it is postedheretoday.
