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 !!!

Quoting Marianne Williamson: “Deeply grateful about the Chilean miners rescue operation going so well. Cried like everyone else as I watched men arriving on the surface. At the same time, I marvel with sorrow at how 33 men trapped in a mine can inspire such compassionate action from the entire world, while 17,000 children starving every day gets a sort of “Too bad, but what can you do….?” attitude in comparison.”
I feel compelled to republish this quote by Marianne Williamson, and give my response to it, as it provokes in me very deep feelings. I for one, am not who I am today without faith, hope, trials, loss and love. . .
. . . saving the 33 Chilean men is an amazing victory of hope and compassion -“in comparison” 17,000 starving children feels overwhelming -perhaps we can build a stronger foundation for saving the children by taking on a perspective of helping “33 children at a time” ?? – that feels more manageable, and clearly it is possible. Also, not to be too comparative, (and not to be too religious, because I follow more of a spiritual nature), but 33 is the age that Christ died on the cross and rose again –
An astrological explanation is well made by astrologer Phil Booth, of Toronto, who explains the series of harsh alignments at the time of the mine collapse, and where the alignments are now: http://boothstars.com
This is a great time to tend to our own deepest fears, and create compassion in our own lives as well… and to rise above to the light of our own lives, and our own dreams …
