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.

Fear Not The Shadows


Pinpoint through the mist,
dawn breaks through twisted branches,
that’s often the way.







Discerning where light leads us,
a daily challenge,
fear not the shadows.





Don't forget to share the love up close with I Heart Macro, 
the linky opens @ 8pm EST Saturday through Monday evening.
