Take Me Away

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly...to soar high above your troubles, sorrows and the negativity of our earthly world? I know it isn't possible at least in a literal sense. But if I close my eyes...if I clear my mind...I can take myself to a place that no one else can enter...I can soley take flight...feeling free to dream and hope of whatever my mind can imagine...to relish in the things that make me smile...a happy place where the wind takes me away...

Where do your dreams take you?

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

Truly Live

I got a call from one of my older sons today...he made my heart sigh....he wasn't feeling well. I asked him if he needed anything and his reply...no...I just felt like talking to you. He is 22 years old...and still needs his mom.

I have never been a person that needed cards, presents or material show of care. It is moments like the one I had today that fill my heart and sustain me. It is the little things that stir my soul....the moments that happen unexpectedly...

My family is a gift of immeasurable proportion and I thank God every day for what he has given me...Love the people who you hold close to your heart...show them..tell them...if you do you will truly live.

Mother Nature

We are surrounded by the most incredible inspiration when we walk out our doors....colors and textures...so many that you can be intoxicated by it's beauty. I am the most comfortable in the hands of mother nature...it soothes my soul.

I have been sketching ideas for new creations...some of my inspirations have been feathers, nests, plant roots, beautiful urns, rusty pails and plants that fall gently over the sides of their pots. I have found some treasures that have made their way into my heart...out onto paper....and will eventually be made into something that will become someone else's treasure.... passing along a little part of me.

The world is filled with wonders...waiting with open arms to surround you with it's healing touch.

Enjoy this day and fill it with the things you love!

Time To Fly

There is something wonderfully unique about bees…Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly. What makes them so miraculous is that they fly anyway. So I say…embrace life…wear the wings you want and fly….

So…here I am flying with my Queen Bee blog wings.

I truly believe that creative people…in order for their souls to survive must create…it is as much a necessity as the air we breathe. “Soul Work” as I call it…what comes from creativity... has eluded me for longer than any other time in my life…but now I feel as though the curtains of that dark room in my mind have been flung open and I am surrounded with the most brilliant light….

So here I am to share my light…to feed my creative soul …and to fly.
