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.

somber sky

silhouetted against a somber sky
leaves floated and flapped
like anxious birds
searching for safe landing
before the rage of the storm to come

Reminding you once again to please send me your words of gratitude to stitch into the Gratitude Quilt... for more information about this click here. It would be wonderful to share your offering in this project. Thank you to everyone who has responded so far!

  1. Great shots, Laura. Words & images are perfect together, and touched my heart!


  2. Beautiful captures Laura, the first one looked almost like a witch flying through the air in front of the storm.

    Thank you for inviting me to participate in the Gratitude Quilt, I will most certainly do so...there is so much to be grateful for!
