  a seeker, photographer, gardener, dabbler, writer and lover of fragrant roses.
my mind a magic space long before i tread my rocky road.
always a healing place if willing to turn over stones

and i am. and i do. and i always will.

i know no other way to be in my world nor would i change many things…
perhaps one day i shall dabble in simple gray clay.

i have learned one thing … no thing ever stays the same.

    Your story is grand, I have to admit I’m a bit jealous. I so long for the country life again. I spent so many years in between grandparents
    One of which had a small farm, I loved it. Before my diagnosis I used to tease my wife and say someday I want to own a vineyard or a hops farm and spend my days painting and tending to the needs of the land. I hope the day treats you well. Best wishes.
    Benjamin.

    I love your paintings , you are a filter of light. Your expression creates that which you see in front of you.
    Do you see how conscious that expression is. God is light and is in your paintings, its a quality of vibration that is detected from eye to heart.
    The difficulty you encounter is in the mind only. Your paintings are a testimony to that, if you painted with your mind you would have dead illustrations of the subject a record contrived and flat.

    Stay in your heart from where you paint, abandon the record of that contrived mind and its labels.
    Detach yourself from what makes your mind restless renounce all that disturbs it peace.
    Journey well one in spirit
    Russell

  18. Wow! I am blown away by this. I love these paintings, your sentiments, and that marvelous skull photo! Your painting is UNFETTERED. Inspiration to me to shed more and more the accreted layers of cultural detritus: the shoulds and shouldn’ts, the fences and leashes and black-barred cages with which we confine ourselves. It is precisely the “wild child” who knows how to paint. Wonderful lesson! There is so much here…I’ll come back when I’m not having to be about my “day job,” and I’ll try to carry this inspiration and encouragement with me through the day and into the week.

  19. Hello Linda. I caught your very compassionate comments over at Benjamin’s blog. I thought I would stop by and see your work and say hello. Very nice work; beautiful crafted and expressionistic, and I really like the look and energy of your blog as well. I will spend more time with your work, as I will definitely subscribe. I am a digital artist. I hope you will stop by when you have some time. I think you may like my work under the chakra, conscious mind and meditation tags.
    Namaste

  23. Linda! I’m sorry I haven’t rambled enough in your garden earlier…you have got all I need to brighten my mind and my day. Your colours are shining through every darkness this winter and every darkness inside me.
    Below is a link to the Swedish Lena Linderholm, whom I admire and find sparks with to ignite my life – now I know an even brighter one – you!

    I’m frightened and sorry to read about what has happened to you – this is really a horror. What are your prescriptions? What can you do about it to cleanse your body? I wish I had some knowledge of this to be able to help in some way. The people are always kept in the dark about environmental dangers – good that you are writing about it.

    Take care and I hope you will find the best possible treatment for this. I will follow you.
