State Of Joy

"I’m discovering the art of living life from a state of joy,
no matter where I’m standing or what I’m looking at."
Esther (Abraham) Hicks

This sunset greeted me, energized me, as I stepped out of my car. I put all the stuff I was carrying on the asphalt to free my hands to take the shot. The gifts seem to just come if I pay attention.

Believing In Something


"A man lives by believing in something,
not by debating and arguing about many things."
Thomas Carlyle

After almost a year, our nursing home is still closed to visitors, but I take the residents outside to a protected area every afternoon. We are able to enjoy the fresh air. And together we look at the sky.

Moon Is a Polka Dot


"After all, well, moon is a polka dot, sun is a polka dot,
and then, the earth where we live is also a polka dot."
Yayoi Kusama

I am up early. Screen door open, watching the moon set over Birmingham, Alabama. I hear the songbirds in the nearby oak branches, a train whistle eight miles away, and the hum of tires speeding on Highway 59/20.

The moon, like me, reflects the light of the sun and puts on a color show -- turning orange then red as it lowers. This moon dances, enchants, then is swallowed by clouds before kissing the horizon.

My meditation practice includes prayer and this watercolor, the art awash in mindfulness and peace.

Shine bright.

The Moon Is There


"I like to think that the moon is there
 even if I am not looking at it."

Albert Einstein

This morning, mesmerized,  I watched through the bare oak trees the moon set over downtown Birmingham as I welcomed the new day. We are Waxing Gibbous at 90%. The full moon is on Friday.

Joining Heaven and Earth


Birmingham, Alabama

"Joining heaven and earth is not separating
this and that, but making them indivisible."
Chogyam Trungpa

My thoughts are hanging with the bare trees. Vibrant reds and oranges and that glowing gold sun.
