Monday’s reflection: What The Silence Says ... “I know that you think that you already know but— Wait . Longer than that. . even longer than that.” ~~ Marie Howe ... I want to be silent enough to hear what the flowers have to say. ... Wishing you many quiet moments throughout this new week.Happy Monday!
There’s a lot going on in my corner of the world right now. You too? One of the practices that roots me, centers me, heals me is creative listmaking. Not just the lists of to-dos. But also the lists of me and other: the lists of dreams and questions and musings. The lists of being and seeing. . Consider this an extra-special invitation to join me in making lists for 10 days. Ten days to pause and gather, to reflect and share. The class is called Just Five Things. . Are you interested? Click link in profile for more info. We gather June 11-22, and I’d love to have you. . #justfivethings#onlineclass#creativelistmaking#ilovelists#justshowup#shine
Sometimes I hit upon a prompt for myself that is phrased just so. A prompt that invites me to look in ever so slightly a new way. A prompt that lifts me, pushes me, holds me. This happened the other day. . I share the prompt on my blog. Hope to see you there. xo . #getitdown#justshowup shine #turnthelensonself#mgdself
Woman reading...’Reading Woman’, a selection from the Middle Ages to present day of paintings, drawings, prints and photos of women reading. (Slide to see the front cover.) .... This: “I have sometimes dreamt that when the Day of Judgement dawns and great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards — their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble — the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms, ‘Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them. They loved reading.’” —Virginia Woolf, ‘How Should One Read a Book?’, in The Common Reader. I came across the quote in A History of Reading by Alberto Manguel. .... Wishing you all a happy weekend!✨📚✨🌹
Here on the pulse of this new month, week, day, I wonder what quiet miracles await. May I be humble enough, silent enough, to recognize them. ... “Here on the pulse of this new day, You may have the grace to look up and out And into your sister’s eyes, into Your brother’s face, your country And say simply Very simply With hope Good morning.” —Maya Angelou, from Inaugural poem, 1993 Wishing you a wonderful day!🌹
Who’s eating a dozen of these tomorrow with a side of Easter Eggs? 🙌🏻 Love a long weekend when it involves loads of treats! I’ve so enjoyed just relaxing in London and catching up with friends on coffee dates, the weather hasn’t bothered me one bit! Anyway, must fly I’ve got fish tacos waiting to be eaten! Happy Saturday! 🤗
It’s a cold and misty morning here. Coffee with French vanilla coconut milk creamer? Why, yes please. And I can’t wait to enjoy a cuppa with my sister tomorrow morning (she and my niece are coming to visit!) . Also...do you see my beautiful woolen wrist wrap?! Handmade with love by the sweet Aeleen of @prairiegirlstudio_flora.fibre I was super lucky to win this wrap (no. 21) in her recent shop-opening giveaway. If you don’t know Aeleen yet, go visit her. She’s lovely. And so is her work. . #coffeecoffee#tinytinymoments#mgdself#ilovemywristwrap
