she danced on her toes
spinning among swirling branches
it was her joy
and destiny
to be
cloud maker

Beyond the Log Cabin Walls: DC: Threshold


she stood at the threshold
before stepping out
feeling into the essence of the world
allowing her breath
to meet the sway of the trees
the depth and height of the mountains
her heart to beat 
to the song of the birds
felt her kinship with the world
and
she stepped out
~

it is lovely to be DC host this week

threshold

Calling for next weekends DC: Threshold


I enjoy considering thresholds

stepping from my door to the outside world
from my car to the outside world
from one breath to the next
from one season to another

i find being aware of that place
the place between
 
that pause
the crossing 
from one place to another

brings me present
to the magic in the mundane


I took this portrait of a snowflake today,
it is so beautiful!
Evidence that we have crossed the threshold of autumn
into winter!

DC: Abundance



I have a client
who likes to have an abundance of these bracelets that I make.

She wears them every day
and
she gives them as gifts.


I started this full time beaded jewelry business when my son was a wee lad
so that I could be a stay at home mom.


Now, it is something I rarely do
but still enjoy.


I feel as though I have been making an abundance of Jewelry.
I still have an abundance of beads!

These are made of tiny glass beads, gemstones and pearls.

DC: Calm


 she closed her eyes
breathed slow and steady
igniting her heart
following her breath
 to the center of her being
tuning into the infinate
she found her calm
calm
that lives within


something about aquas and pale greens
light dancing on water
that brings me to an inner calm

~
Thank you Veronica
for this timely prompt: calm
Visit Veronica's wonderous place to find others sharing in Calm

Doe a Deer, Announcing DC


doe a deer

Announcing DC for weekend of November 14-15

"deer"
not to be confused with dear
unless it is a 
dear deer
;-)

just one example of how confusing the English language can be!

~

something new:

please let me know in comment below that you would like 
to post something for 
"deer"

BUT, the new part:
come to my blog after your post is on your blog
and 
there will be a way for you to link your post through a 
"linky" thing
(i think it will make sense when you see it)

that way people know your post is up and ready to visit
does that make sense?

if not ask me questions

wishing you fun
thinking of deer this week

DC: liminal, Yogini and Beluga Whale


deeply immersed 
in her journey

in the liminal state

 earth woman 
begins her transformation
to
woman of waters deep

soon to be
a mermaid
~

'Liminal' is a wonderful theme Veronica, as we 
step back and forth 
between seasons...
thank you!


yesterday we had our first snow of the season:


today, a bit more autumn in the air,
we seem to be in a liminal state:

visit Veronica's this weekend to see how others have 
been inspired

Wood Witch, Blessed Samhain and Happy Halloween to You!


the sylvan dwellers be charmed
a land where life thrives
all have the gift of living 
in the flow 
of life
 from the essence of where 
breath is born

all be kin
trees, critters, land, air and she
for the wood witch
thrives in harmony

~
this is the last day of inkTober
it has been a fun daily challenge for me
to breathe life into a new drawing a day

it might be time to pick up the paints and color

Wishing you all a lovely Samhain, Beltane
and
Halloween!

InkTober and Pink Fungi


decided to paint one of my inkTober sketches
sometimes this is a hard choice
(paint or leave it pen and ink)

such a hopeful little fairy




today's ink sketch:
tree sprites
to love a tree is a worthy thing
yet
with tree sprites
i think the tree and them 
are one in the same


perhaps 
finding this forest mushroom inspired the paint in the top piece

i am thrilled with finding a few mushrooms this season!
