Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures


Nesting in Home

For those feeling overwhelmed, or taken with the idea of experiencing a short sabbatical I can suggest an awesome destination for restoration and rejuvenation: home.  Not “home” with the HONEY-DO list and laundry and dishes, and dust under the sofa… No!  Home that serves as sanctuary and allows you to settle in and experience the sense of Nesting and Resting.  Here’s a little piece I made for a project for my friends at HOT OFF THE PRESS/ PAPER WISHES.  (http://blog.paperwishes.com/  My long time friend, Paulette Jarvey, offers a lot of courtesy instruction at this site. All the materials featured in my collage below, with the exception of my musical heart and the acrylic wash, are from her company.)

 

I hope you get to enjoy a brief sabbatical today.  I’ve decided NOW is a good time for one for me.  I was sorting hundreds of small, original water colors for a design project I’m undertaking and…spilled my water cannister all over my art bench.  And my originals.  While they, my art bench, and my spirit dry off – I’m taking a short sabbatical.  Indeed I am!

Is There Such A Thing as an Ordinary Day?
I found myself looking about the tasks of my day and I casually assessed, "Well, this is just an ordinary day." I immediately countered that observation.  June 25, 2014.  Unrepeatable.  Never to be seen again. These seconds,as they sweep past, will never whooosh in precisely the same configura

What Can You Do to Stop Gun Violence?
Pay attention to what the Brady Bill people are doing on June 21: ASK the question.  Share with your neighbors, family and school.  And then, ask the question and DO something about the answer.
