My art and writing are two channels I use to express gratitude for all the goodness in my life.  Being creative requires me to step out of my comfort zone and explore new avenues.  When I write and paint from the heart, everything makes sense.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share my joy with you.

and yet...


today i awoke to find that our world had shifted

and uncertainty had silently, insidiously slipped in.

rain was falling

and yet...

my husband still gently kissed me goodbye

while our pup curled closer for warmth.

the titmouse and chickadee still gathered at the feeder,

as I brought my freshly brewed tea to my lips and watched.

i said a silent prayer before breakfast

{as always}

and still planned out my day.

today I awoke to find that our world had shifted

and yet...

my heart remained open and true.




Moving on
