Thank You 2014…..

it took losing my job for me to begin living.
most of my adult life has been spent obsessing over
money…or the lack of it. for me it was never about
keeping up with the Jones…it was about keeping a
roof over our heads…dependable transportation…and
food on the table. i lost my job through no fault of my
own. the day i was given my walking papers should 
have debilitated me with fear…but it didn't. i never once
got that chills in the gut feeling because i knew….i
KNEW... the Universe would provide for me…and it
has. i have been blessed many times over since then.

my days are now filled with art…books…long walks
and a wonderment for life. i am so thankful for my
blessings…and the more thankful i've become…the more
blessed i have been. this has been a wonderful year…

thanks for all the answers 2014….

I Need A Do Over….

There is an African proverb that says "When an old
man dies…a library burns to the ground." 

I was never blessed with a Teller of Stories in my family.
I collected bits and pieces of the more legendary family
tales through the years without ever sitting down to question
the whys..whens…and what fors…from my elders. As I
ease into my senescent years there are so many regrets for
all the unasked questions..the missing puzzle pieces…
the loss of my history. I am lucky enough to have the
family bible (above) with recorded births and deaths
of my Mothers family…but I want the stories…the day to
day living of life goings ons…the silly..the sad..the brave…
the cowardly…I want to know about all the blue highways 
on the map to this thing I call…me. 

I've waited until the last library has burned to the ground….
I need a do over..

Oh Deer…..

I always like giving meaningful gifts…
especially something I've made myself.
This Christmas I called upon Deer Spirit
to help me with my gifting. I used cast off antlers…
once used to connect these beautiful animals to the
higher energies...and crafted this key chain…
some earrings…and a necklace… in hopes of
 imparting the Grace…Gentleness…and 
the Intuitiveness of Deer Spirit into the lives
 of the recipients. 

As they carry with them the Magic…
Sacredness... and Peace... of the forest..
I ask that Deer Spirit give them guidance
in their daily living of life.
