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.
Meditation Challenge: Join Sharon Salzberg and thousands of other people across the globe meditating every day for the month of February. Registration is free, but you need to register by February 6th. Every morning a brief (5 minutes or so) guided meditation comes to your inbox. If you have never meditated before this is a great way to start. If you have in the past, but need a little gentle assistance to get started again, this is a wonderful opportunity. AND if you have an established practice, it’s always good to be reminded of the basics. I hope you will join us.
Warm air and ice collide.
Through mist and unseasonable rain, unreasonable thoughts worlds, words whirl. A
raw thaw, naked as the trees, you stand shivering too. Where is the sun to
separate the shadows from the light? Plow passes on a distant road, thunderous whoosh
of sand sullied slush, clearing a safe path for travelers.
Tomorrow the gloom is supposed to lift, sunny with balmy temps in the mid 40's… such odd winter weather. It will be good to get outside and take a walk, after the arctic blast and now the rain. This body needs to move to release tense muscles and clear the fog in my head.
It is time for YOU to share the love up-close with YOUR
I Heart Macro offerings!
Enjoy slowing down with
your camera, paying full attention, observing beauty and curiosities many
people pass right by. Your generosity of spirit and keen eyes may open the door
to miniscule miracles and mirth others would not have access to otherwise. Feel
free to include poetry, prose and thoughts your macro photo or series
inspire(s) in you. Writing is completely optional for participation.
Straight out of the camera (SOC), edited, color, black and white; anything goes
as long as you bring the viewer near to whatever it is that drew your heart's
attention and "woke you up" to full presence.
