Spending some time meditating on the Lotus...first spent some time revisiting the mud and mire and the roots that anchor.

The water was the focus of this piece...the water that gives life but also washes and encompasses the beauty without crushing or swamping it. In the past, I've been afraid of being overcome by the billows and waves...not so much anymore.

In This Life

Kept coming back to this painting I did several years ago. Somehow it's seems to capture something about 2018 for me. The original title was "In This Life" and that seems to fit.

May Your New Year Be Glorious!

Friday, July 29, 2011


Most mornings on my way to work, perched above the road in a rather unexpected area, sits a Kingfisher. I was quite surprised when I first noticed him and was delighted to see him the next day and the next. And loved that he stayed with me.

the gentle Compassion that rises up within… filling me.

the flowing River that encompasses and sustains…carrying me.

the fragrance of Gardenias on a summer evening… breathing me.

the Kingfisher perched above the circle of the earth… watching over me.

God is.
