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.

Right Now

Right Now

Ten Things...


...warm breeze brushing my shoulders

...house wrens chattering as they build a nest under the eaves

...sun pouring through the open door

...windows wide open in every room

...anticipating his return from a week on the AT

...heady scent of lilacs 

...a sense of satisfaction (making a lot of headway on spring cleaning)


...comfortable ache in my muscles

...my buddy, resting by my feet, patiently waiting for his walk


What does your 'right now' look like?  I'd love to know...


Sharing with Michelle GD.

Spring has returned. The earth is like a child that knows poems.
