Smile, Laugh, and Love





These last few weeks I've experienced shifts, growth and epiphanies. I finished reading A New Earth from Eckhart Tolle. I participated in Give Your Dream Wings. I've noticed that my art journaling has changed. I thought I was missing someone from my past but really what I miss is our friendship. I recognized why I put a stop to a new relationship going any further. I was compelled to pulled my tarot cards out of storage. I started drawing/doodling again with no need for perfection. I even made a tentative schedule for my creative endeavors. Can't wait to see what May holds for me

Participating in this photo challenge has been a lot of fun for me. I'm not taking spectacular pictures or anything. Just putting the act into practice first has been good. Because for awhile there, I was rarely taking any photographs. I plan on participating next month too.

Whatever The Struggle, Continue the Climb




Wow I almost forgot to set this post to publish.  I was catching up on some blog reading and trying to find a spider that fell too close to some shoes.

To Express Yourself




There are times I have so many words and thoughts I want to share here. I'll type it all out and before I can stop myself, I delete the whole thing.
