4 Friday Favs

Sitting on the porch at sunrise before beginning to write, I realize how long this list has become, each item seemingly valuable, worth sharing & considering. I'm guessing that since I'm traveling and because routines are new, people are new, everything I'm seeing is new, stands to reason there might be lots of new thoughts bubbling around. Anyway, it's taken some effort to condense the list to just 4 things but sometimes less is more, right? Or at least that's what is said! 1 Things I'm considering : this is said to be a gypsy quote - "le duy vas xalaven pe" which translates to "the hands wash each other" meaning, that we are all connected.

Here's what's been spinning around in my head this past week as I get ready to leave for a few weeks in Mexico. 1. ”Surrender to what is. Say 'yes' to life, and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you."—Eckhart Tolle 2.

The metaphor of a bridge comes up repeatedly, in conversation, in my creative musings, in paintings. Working with cli

4 Friday Musings

1. Spent a bit of time up on the ridge of the mountains here, which are around 3500 feet. There’s lots of manzanita, chaparral, and the earth is made of shale and rock. Because we’ve finally had rain this past month, there are little creeks with water gently running. It’s 30 minutes to town, to all the busy-ness of community but you feel like you’re on a different planet. There were goats… funny characters who’d been bottle fed from an early age and thought they were sort of related to dogs, specifically lap dogs.
