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

Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

for my ears
the soothing, centering hum of my singing bowl
I have a little ritual that I do when I enter Sparrow Studio in the morning...
I light a candle, place my singing bowl in the palm of my left hand and let it sit there for a moment or two to warm to my body temperature. Holding the mallet in my right hand, I gently strike the rim of the bowl and outstretch my arm around the entire room.
for my eyes
in a quiet corner of the garden
(mama Robin is nesting just behind me and I find myself glancing up from the pages
to check on her and smile)
for my mouth
freshly baked cookies
for my soul
making wishes
for my hands
clipping flower heads and leaves of all shapes and sizes
and adding them to my flower press
This week I sat and wrote out letters & made a few little pressed flower tags to slip inside
for my feet
walk and touch peace every moment
walk and touch happiness every moment
each step brings a fresh breeze
each step makes a flower bloom
kiss the earth with your feet
bring the earth your love and happiness
the earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves
~Thich Nhat Hanh~ 
~carve out time for reflection~
