On the walks I take every day, I listen to songs that inspire me and this one has definitely been over played! I’m the kind of person who keeps an open mind to signs and divine guidance, which keeps me in a place of believing in what is possible
I was walking along the road, noticing the cracks and how they lead toward the edge into the grass, the wild flowers blowing in the wind, tree branches reaching up to the sky, and how the whole scene winds around to somewhere I can’t yet see until I walk a little further. And while listening to this song, I thought about how there is a grander plan, and that God has blessed this broken road.
This moment filled me with gratitude for every relationship I’ve had, (siblings, friends, parents, lovers), for they have all made me who I am today, and led me to where I am now. Like northern stars, each one has been a guide. Then that thought created a gentler, forgiving version of the past, and a feeling of peace in my heart.
We don’t always see the signs, but like the song says, bless the road that might seem broken, for it is in this imperfection that a grander plan is coming true.
Time sure flies . . . spring can’t come quick enough . . . I hear it’s going to be a nice, warm Sunday ? Well let’s hope the weatherman is right ! I’ve been hibernating over the winter, that’s about the gist of it, but the sun is shining and I gotta smile on my face… I have a lot of new and fresh ideas to share, beginning with a new art show at the local Starbucks . . .
My art is a meditation, it transforms the space I’m in, so that it radiates higher frequency feelings, of happiness, brilliance, love abundance. From the fragrance of a flower, to the single passing moments in a breath, a glance, a thought, I am present and alive.
Spring is here and transforming the environment with brighter days, warmer temperatures, and ultimately, smiles – while we let go of the old, dark winter parts of our lives …
Come out to the Starbucks for a java and enjoy springtime on the walls !!!

My art is a form of meditation. Sometimes what ends up on the page is not what I’d had in mind, but then I take another look and ask myself, “but where exactly did that come from?” And then I think about how this image just “‘poof ‘d” out of my head and that somehow my brain connected to my hand to create the lines and paint to form this thing – this painting… and then I think, “wow… cool… “
This past weekend in New York City the annual Dumbo Art Festival http://dumboartsfestival.com/ was held; from DJ spinning to art installations on the street, to artists creating murals before your eyes, the festival reflects New York’s creative community. I want to share a cool post from MindBodyGreen – Your Gateway to Wellness, by Jason Wachob; an interview with CAM, aka. Craig Anthony Miller, about music DJ ing typically associated with Yoga, art, meditation and what his creative influences are… Check it out at http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-1427/Q-A-with-Artist-CAM-The-Yoga-Sessions-Series-Meditation-Ganesh.html
