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

week in reflection ...

my 'thankful  {things I love}thursday' post … a day late ;-) … but just as thankful!
for my ears
the sound of sweet baby Robins who have been splashing about in the tiny dish of water
that sits at the edge of the pond. Nice and safe for little ones just finding their way in the world. 
for my eyes
the daisies are in bloom in Sparrow's Garden.
They have always been my  favourite flower .
I've cut a few stems for the kitchen table 
for my mouth
homemade spinach gnocchi
with roasted tomato sauce
for my soul
finding a heart 
it just feels like a little love note from the Universe
for my hands
the joy of holding a paint brush
for my feet
an open field … just for us! 
somewhere only we know
"... I walked across an empty land.
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand.
I felt the earth beneath my feet.
Sat by the river and it made me complete …"
"Don't underestimate the power of thinking
about someone kindly,
singing a song,
putting flowers in the corner as an offering of beauty to life;
of creating a beautiful dinner table,
treating your body kindly;
of making art,
or creating ritual and ceremony.
All of these actions create our world"
