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.

It Is The Small Things






It is the small things. The ordinary things people walk past without a second glance, that seem to draw me near...

To read the rest of this essay and see a couple more photos that are a part of this whole posting, please pop over to Buddha Chick Life , where my dear friend Jan Lundy, author, editor and publisher has created and established a beautiful online magazine and sacred community "for women on the grow." This month's theme is "In Love With Life." Are you in love with life??? You KNOW I am!
