Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

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.

A Small Stone: Jan 26, 2012

A morning softly lit; light waves ride on snow-mist, released by a winter yawn. Afternoon opens wide for twisted branches, as they stretch through January blue.
