Shine the Divine:

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.

Evening Stroll


What caught my attention most were the tiny drops of water reflecting the sun and a day well spent with my beloveds.

Not sure how much I will be online over the next few weeks. We shall see how things play out. I am hoping to have some time to myself to write and visit the blogging neighborhood. You have all been so supportive. It means a great deal to me, thank you.

gentle steps,
Laura

  20. these are very nice! i can't wait to get my camera back. it's been broken...and the parts are made in Japan...and the factory was damaged in the earthquake. I can't really complain about the reason, it's not their fault. I am missing it, that's all.

    These are good photos! =)
