Baby steps and marathons
2019 – my year of exploration – of “following my soul” got off to a slow start with a few baby steps that set things into motion. Then – I did it – I listened to my soul and dropped that big stone into the river…
Sitting in my office the other day, I asked myself – what am I doing here? And my mind whispered without hesitation – neglecting your soul.
Life in motion
Life – always in motion. My challenge for the month was to capture motion – which, as it turns out, is much too broad of a topic for one month. I gave it a try, though, and had a lot of fun in the process!
Keeping it simple
It’s been a busy few weeks, but today, I’m keeping it simple.
Negative space – art imitates life
Negative space – I love it, though you’d never know that to look at my photos. In a photo, blank space can be boring, or it can be calming. Which makes me wonder – is art imitating life? I have so little calm “space” in my life right now – is that what my photos reflect?
Today I choose joy
Yep – choosing joy, choosing happiness – it’s a real thing. I’m fortunate in so many ways, but these last few months… And so, it seems, the universe has been sending me messages. “Happiness is actually an art of living, which is in us.”
Winter – the hush of the first snowfall, early morning walks as the sun rises from behind the mountain, wandering on a frozen lake, and the crunch of snow beneath my boots. I’m not sure when I started loving winter.
greeting the new year
Cheers to 2019 – a year I hope will bring exploration – trying new things, exploring new options. A year for stretching my photography skills and getting messy in my art journal.
Quiet the mind
Quiet the mind and the soul will speak. I’m giving my mind a break, and listening to my soul.
The beginning of December and, already, I am looking forward to 2019. Sigh – I feel as though I am wishing a whole month away – but, really, I’m not. I know all too well that this month will whiz by more quickly than I am prepared for. Winter has arrived in Vermont; smile… Time […]
And just like that…
it’s winter. Well, maybe not the real winter – at least my calendar says it’s not really winter – yet and yet… The holiday season is upon us; holiday music and decorations, everywhere. It always takes me by surprise – I’m never quite ready. I am looking forward to the holidays, though, bidding adieu to 2018. […]
“Life is simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” Confucius I can’t finish what I don’t start I enjoy writing posts – I do. My downfall seems to be getting started. I am always – always – thinking of new ideas, my mind working in overdrive. But – I can’t post what I don’t […]
