"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Friday morning

Hi everyone, I had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico with my friends. My camera broke right before my trip, but there were wonderful pictures taken by others. I will post some when I get them. The weather was perfect, we had a few afternoon storms, the lightening over the ocean was magnificent - and loud!!!!! I did come home with a cold, and have been laying low all week.

I did manage to do some work from my gut art class. I seem to be drawn to home, and working through what that means to me. past, present and future.

These are the words that are now written around the house.

warm
family
safe
pieces
losses
joy
legacy of generations
anger

Hi Mary, Glad you are back home safe and sound and had a good time. Also am glad you stopped by to visit. WOW what a wide range of emotions you have listed to reflect on. This should help you create some really amazing and creative art. Hugs my friend, Mollye

Quite an interesting array of words with so much depth. Glad you had a wonderful vacation and hope you feel better soon. Love the little house.

Have just discovered your lovely blog. My first reaction was to be amazed that your style is so similar to Mystele ... based on the banner at top ... then I scrolled down and I see it IS by Mystele! Wonderful! I love her work and I am the happy "owner" of two of her paintings. Owner doesn't seem quite the right word ... caretaker may be more like it. Also, I see you are taking her Gut Art class, which I had intended to do but ended up realizing my plate is just too full right now and I must tend to already made commitments before taking on something new. I love your blog and your art. I'll be back!

Hi Mary, I always appreciate your sweet, encouraging comments. Thank you. I noticed your home theme too. Love it. I can't wait to take the next gut art class.

& I can't wait to see those Puerto Rico pictures! Keep blogging...

A trip like that would really take the wind out of me. You are wise to rest.
I love your house picture...and the words. Putting them together gives me food for thought. Your nice big door makes me think your home is a welcome place to all.
