Doesn't that word just elevate you to another level….
think about it…
It does me…
every time I catch a glimpse of it's resting place in the kitchen, where so many activities transpire...
It's a beautiful reminder of the "good" things….friendships, conversations, good times…I am SO lucky and blessed!
Thank You Meliss, my friend, for the birthday gift:)

Published in the May/June issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine! Prints are available here!
I've been working...and working...& did I say...working?
I'm developing a new series here ... yes, a series: a number of related or similar objects
|"Aria": an elaborate melody sung solo with accompaniment, as in an opera or oratorio|
I say..."yes, a series: a number of related or similar objects" because I think I may...did I say MAY?....ok...I definitely have commitment issues...
|"Eclipse": a reduction or loss of spender, status reputation|
|"Ebullience": high spirits; exhilaration; exuberance|
|"Luminous": radiating or reflecting light; shining; bright|
I am looking forward to sharing more....

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.
Gardens are not made by singing 'Oh, how beautiful,' and sitting in the shade.
Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are.
In search of my mother's garden, I found my own.
It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees.
Gardening is how I relax. It's another form of creating and playing with colors.
Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.
When I go into the garden, I forget everything. It's uncomplicated in my world of gardening. It's trial and error, really. If something doesn't work, it comes out, and you start all over again.
A garden must combine the poetic and he mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy.
Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.

It's one of those days where I must calm my mind and tend to domestic responsibilities. I can live in chaos to a point…then…the twitchiness sets in. I will catch up on the news, listen to music as I scrub and dust and organize the "twitchies" away…then I will begin messing things up again as I continue to work on several series…here's a glimpse of one:
Happy Friday to you…More to follow!
