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.

Go Slow

Bright treasures sit on the side of the road for patient eyes to discover.


 





"Go slow the flowers whisper."

We will be traveling north later today so posting will be spotty this week. I'm listening to the flowers, going slow, healing my body with plenty of fresh air, beautiful views, loving company and rest. I just realized this is my 400th post...wow!

  22. My friend, I was saddened to read about your hospital visit and your current state of health. I wish there was something I could do. I remember a time when breathing had been quite an issue in my health and then one day it let up. It is still hard though for me to put on my shoes without taking deep breaths and taking a break.
    I continue to pray for you and I think of you so often. Your visit sounds like it was kind of nice even though it kept you separated from your family. I truly hope you start to feel better.
    With love and affection, Beaux

  32. Laura, I've read all the posts I missed but I didn't comment on them. (Just got too busy.) So glad you're home and planning a trip. I am certainly not surprised that you get weepy at times. I do, for much less stress. Hope you keep getting better and enjoy your trip. Love all these photos.
