"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.

Good morning



I slept on the screened porch last night.
There was a lovely breeze, it was even a little chilly.
I awoke in the wee hours of the morning to the most brilliant beautiful moon shining down on me. It is a few hours later, when the sun is up but it is not fully light yet. The birds are chirping, the leaves are swaying, such a beautiful morning. I am going to grab a coffee and head back to the porch.

This is a painting I did last year. It now hangs in my oldest son's apartment.

Have a lovely weekend my dear blogging buddies!!

Your moonscape is beautiful and what a nice thing to do sleeping on the porch. You are the second to mention the moon this morning. I must look tonight.

My first word was moon...we lived in Hawaii (my dad was an officer in the Navy) and I was born in Honolulu. We had a "coffee table" book about Hawaii and one of the photos was of an enormous moon. I guess I saw it enough times and I finally said "MOON". I still love to look at the moon -- I love that painting you did!! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

This is a wonderful painting Mary! I love your usual bold, vibrant style, but this piece is much different from what I know of your work. It is very evocative. I also love the texture! :)
