The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

Sunday serenity ...

an October afternoon
from my little corner of the world
As I walk,
as I walk,
the Universe
is walking with me.
Beauty
is on every side.
As I walk,
I walk with beauty.
~Navajo Prayer~

October hush ...

"all we have, it seems to me,
is the beauty of 
art and nature and life
and the love
which that beauty inspires"
~Edward Abbey~ 
It's one of those October days
where the wind is blowing, the leaves are dancing
it's misty and foggy and yet so very soothing and cozy...
You bundle up and head out to one of your favourite spots and walk … 
and although you've walked there many times, you spot something new and magical & smile
~ life is change … flow/grow with it~
embracing the seasons
into the wild 
similarities and yet each unique 
"promise me one thing
wild child,
never filter your soul
to suit a mould"
~Nikki Rowe~ 
a beautiful tangle
nature's weaving
"some are born to play it safe
others are born to live it wild"
~Nikki Rowe~
"life is a balance
of holding on
and
letting go"
~rumi~ 
Archer … let's take our hearts for a walk in the woods
and listen to the magic whispers
of old trees …

autumn stories ...

my favourite season is showing in my paintings :-)
acorns and changing leaves are falling off my paintbrush as quickly as the trees
there have been surprises in our garden
where the bees are still enjoying the cosmos
and a hummingbird stopped by the other day!
garden bunnies are nibbling the rose of Sharon
 our maple tree is dropping leaves
 revealing the nests that have been built in her
on morning walks with Archer we have spotted both owls and coopers hawks
regal and magical filling me with inspiration
and of course...
sparrows
enjoyed a get away to beautiful Old Montreal
to watch a hockey game
&
see
Sir Paul McCartney in concert!!!
forest walks
and the blessings of rainy days for quiet contemplation 
and before the garden is tucked in for the Winter, I've been taking coleus clippings 
which now sit in little jam jars on a sunny window
~my autumn stories~

"Everything is held together
with stories.
That is all that is holding us together.
Stories and compassion"
