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

April beach walk ...

I love beach walks... the ease of sand underfoot
sound of the waves {it was a high tide}
sometimes boats in the distance …
seagulls at the waters edge & the song of birds...
the breeze coming off of the waves that sprinkles my face with a salty mist
wondering what treasures I will stumble upon … what will catch my eye …
walking meditation
on yesterday's walk I found a gorgeous feather
heart shaped stones
a sweet piece of pottery with the tiniest heart on one side in my favourite shade of green
lots of beach glass {mermaid tears}
In a sea of blue fish swimming right
I am the green fish swimming left
Grey Jay who lives by the lake and sings and flies from tree to bush to tree
followed me as I walked.
I find myself looking for him now.
Yesterday, it felt like maybe he was looking for me too.
I love placing all my finds on the table where I can really admire and enjoy each one once home.
I'm always surprised at just how much I have gathered!
Eventually, the glass will find a settling spot in one of the many jars I have clearing the table for the next walk  …
I'm sure one day these pieces will find their way into a project...
maybe a large frame or table mosaic...
Pieces of driftwood often become smudge wands or with the flatter pieces,  I will paint them
and create tea light candle holders.

It makes sharing 
the common stuff
extra special"

in a world where Sparrows

there is enough"

sacred spaces
"I am an artist:
a dreamy, eccentric, romantic, rebel artist.
I live in the voluptuous dimension
of my imagination.
If you expect normalcy from me,
sorry to disappoint,
but you are quite mistaken.
Ordinary is not my best attire.
I have tried it and normal never fit quite right.
I will always be the crazy one
who believes in
and impossible dreams,
heartfelt and soulful things"

Living near the sea keeps your artistic juices stirred. I so enjoy seeing what you find on your walks. I can almost see it all with the Jay meeting you and following. Enjoy your weekend.
