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.

First Day of April




and now spring begins
crocuses starting to bloom
first day of april



I've been out with my camera this week, awed and inspired by hints of the world waking. I look forward to sharing what I've observed with you this Sunday evening, April 3rd and hope you will join me as I Heart Macro resumes, at least for this week, we'll see how things go.
