Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Taking some time tonight to work on my Buddha Series of photo art. There will be nine in the series and the edited images are just the start of what I hope to create.
Stay tuned as my vision progresses. Since I was little and my Grandparents had a big jolly Buddha on their bar I have been fascinated by them. I am blessed to have a dear friend with a gorgeous garden with a very special Buddha collection I was able to do most of my images from.
I am blown away almost daily by the art and brutally honest work my Noah is producing, he shares some on his page Accounts of a Flailing Mind.
It is moving, witty, edgy and emotionally stirring; especially for a Momma who worries constantly and feels helpless in his journey. Please support him. I am deeply passionate about with some of my volley work now in Mental Health. Awareness, openness and unconditional love is the only way our society is going to beat the ugly disease of mental illness that afflicts us all to some extent.
I share Noah`s dry, cynical sense of humour and this made me giggle this morning.
Driving to school in the mornings this NO song by Meghan Trainor is always playing and I sing it to the boys...although Noah probably wouldn't agree I think it pairs nicely with this. Girl view vs boy view. There is a huge difference between asking something authentically and just trying to hook up, everything about the bar scene culture scares me. I don't often go out but I joined some friends late Saturday night for a band at a bar and had a few fun dances and laughs with people yet I kept hearing this song in my head and I am pretty sure that was my heart protecting me. Love it. Wish somehow I could protect my boys hearts too.
Before I get back to tackling Monday's huge to do list I wanted to share another couple of Noah's pieces as I am so proud.
This is so powerful and true...there is a little devil in our heads. It makes our head overpower our heart and can mess everything up.
He just did this recently and captioned it: When you are trying to be a fish but it ain't working out...
Have a great Monday friends, thank you for your support,
A lot is going on in my little world right now, and like many other people I am having an emotionally heavy week. Nothing tragic or traumatic and I am beyond grateful for that, but still I am worried.
When my mind is racing and my tummy is churning with the unknown I turn to happy music for comfort. When I get a few minutes to sneak out in the garden I hear this tune in my head...sun, birds, spring, sweet love...little things to believe in.
Enjoy friends, sending love & light to those struggling everywhere,
