Just this moment my Thanksgiving guests are winging their way back to Northern California and their busy lives. We have had 5 wonderful days together including Thanksgiving and we are all refreshed now. What a gift. Such good people living in these times.
Journal pages before and after. They evolve, just like we do. The empty pages wait for the life that will be expressed onto them. I love watching Suzi Blu hug her journal in an embrace, close her eyes and say, "mmmmmm". She loves her journal. Smart girl.
I shot a still life while waiting for my company to arrive. Aren't the new Lemon Drop glasses pretty?
And nobody gets out of my house without painting a still life or two. I love to be the art instigator. To get to witness the happiness creating a painting invariably brings to people. The reaction is always one of surprise. No one expects to create something as good as they are able to create. And then they are very elated and they want to paint more. What fun!
We had an excellent Thanksgiving with our daughters, their families and our cherished friends. This is our circle now, the one that is unbroken. There have been other circles of family and friends over the years and all of them are in my heart, whole and together. I pray for all of us, that our hearts can expand to include as many others as possible. Therein lies happiness. Namaste.
