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.
I have been so blessed to have Alicia Brown as one of my physical therapists.Her compassion, deep listening, knowledge and skills are aiding my body to heal. Three weeks ago her family’s life turned upside down when her husband Chris was diagnosed with leukemia. They found out yesterday that he will need a bone marrow transplant later this summer and will be out of work for a very long time after that. This loving family of four (they have two sweet little girls) could really use our financial support at this time. When I asked Alicia if I could add a link to their Go Fund Me page on my blog, being a person of humility, she replied, “No, you don’t need to do that.” I responded, “I don’t need to, but I want to. There are few things I can do in the world to assist others, because of my own illness. Please let me do this small thing and ask others to join in, give us a chance to do something good. This is why we are here on earth, to help one another.” She cried in appreciation and agreed to allow me to share their story and post this. That said, I hope like me you will open your hearts and pockets, click the link below, read more about her family and offer a donation.

I Heart Macro Week 35
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.
