It is my intention to mix love and truth in the small space I’ve been given. It is a colorful blending at times!

I am woefully inadequate to tread this path… like a vast field of wild flowers, weeds and tractor ruts.
It can be hard to look up!

I find solace in knowing it is one moment at a time.
Whatever my experience, it can change in an instant.
It is temporary.
One never doesn’t stop crying.

There is within that knowing, a power to create change both within and without.

My mountain is dead.
As soon as she has dried, I’ll bury her under a decent layer of white paint. But I haven’t done with the old lady; far from it!
Emily Carr

When the Japanese mend broken objects they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold, because they believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.

    You are far from an inadequate journeyer on any path you choose. Your vision is true and your spirit is powerful, my friend. When I’m feeling a bit weak or at a spiritual loss I tend to remind myself that even having heard of the dharma is a blessing.

    Your little shrine is wonderful as are all of your paintings too. That Emily Carr image is stunning. Thanks for reminding me about her.

    So often I feel inadequate to the task in front of me, the circumstances, the situation, the dynamics…sometimes it’s minute by minute. Frequently it’s about remembering that I’m never truly doing it alone, inspite of how alone I feel. That’s how it plays out for me time and time again, but in the midst of the storm, I’m hard pressed to remember. This is why I surround myself with people who’ll remind me, who’ll walk through the storms with me, even if only in spirit, sometimes. I’m a spirit walker, too. So know that you’re not alone.
    I’d also remind you that Christopher Robbin said it well to Pooh Bear.

    And omg the paintings are amazing.
