Day 46 - Watering

Watching the trees and grass get watered gave me a feeling like a mom watching their child eat and infesting nutrition. Diana Clark, my first spiritual Guru in Portland, taught me that we are all everything. That was in 1996 or so....not even 20 years ago. It was a pretty big revelation being I was a city girl who had just moved there from Manhattan. And now, I am happiest in the presence of these precious plants and trees... Anywhere in nature and I feel like I am "home."

Day 43 - Humanity

Today I walked by a house and the family just moved in. The gardener stopped to let me and the dogs pass by and during that time the man of the house came out introduced himself to the gardener and offered him a bottle of water. Humanity exists right here in my neighborhood and that's beautiful.

Day 44 - Peace

After a couple anger alignment sessions (good talks with good friends) I feel more at peace today. Maybe that's why I'm wearing white? I really like the concept of the self-portrait and after watching "The Woodman's" I am even more inspired to work on a self-portrait series, maybe a few.

I'm excited to receive my wireless remote that I ordered yesterday. It's not that different looking at a self-portrait than it is a flower image taken with a macro lens.... If done effectively, the viewer will feel up close and personal with the subject... Maybe even more so since there is expressive content through the body or face or environment. A self-portrait can tell an entire story if it's that good ...and that's what I aspire to.

Day 43 - Anger

Getting in touch with anger is fascinating to me. I never know I'm really angry until I feel it in an exaggerated way. I haven't been angry in a long time, but I'm angry now at the behavior of someone I know. I know this will pass and I will be able to let go of them with love if they are not willing to work things through, but sometimes, after all these years of living, it still astounds me how some people think their hurtful behavior is ok and how they are blind to their own unkindness. I am grateful for the reminder to stay focused on and in my own life...for that is the only thing I can control. I feel better already.

Day 42 - Images

My friend Amy took this photo of me.

Day 41- Differences

The sky was so beautiful. High strewn clouds against a very blue back drop. It reminded me of the contrast needed to understand ourselves and others.

Day 25- Dog Day Afternoon

Day 24 - The Georgian Sessions Continue

For the last few months I have had the pleasure of meeting with gallery owner, Jeanie Madsen.  It all started when I sent her an email a couple of years ago to let her know that I really appreciated her tenacity in her marketing and her constancy in supporting art and artists.  It took us two years to finally get together and when we did, it was synchronicity.  There aren't many people I can talk philosophy with in addition to art, but with Jeanie, it flowed easily and before too long we realized that we were on similar paths in our lives and each session was one of depth, exploration and fun.  Since that first meeting at The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica, we have met there many times... and each time, I look forward to it.  I walk away so much richer than when I arrived and I get to take away an inspiration that lasts quite a while.  I value these times and don't take them for granted and realize what a sacred gift it is... truly.  Jeanie is a great supporter of Beauty and Wisdom and has shared other projects of similar nature.  Working together will be secondary and will come so easily...and after many months of meditating on attracting great people to work with... so it is.  She is quite the visionary.
