Peace begins with me

14 03 2010

Already the middle of March and approaching the equinox! Good fortune has indeed gathered at the front door since the lunar year began.

My fortunes include a potential gallery venue to show my paintings this year, freelance copy editing and proofreading income, and an extra green trash can from a neighbor for our garden trimmings, just when I wished for them!

I checked in with Oprah and enjoyed a couple of her interviews with Thich Nhat Hanh that you might like too. Here are the links:

What else is new in this light?

I am reading Jamling Tenzing Norgay’s book Touching My Father’s Soul, on loan from another good neighbor who has trekked in Nepal. He promises I’ll like it — the book (agreed) and the trekking (if only . . . now that’s what I call a goal!). You may click on the title to read some reviews.

Our granddaughter, who comes to the studio several times a week now when her parents are away at work, turned 10 months, and she’s so tickled to walk on her own. Look out, world! I find myself reflecting on my toddlerhood — yes, I can remember all they way back to then — and appreciate all the more the extended family, uncle, aunt, and neighbors, who took care of me.

Which brings to mind a new meditation I’m doing. It’s called “Installing Inner Game” by Devon White. You may check it out at this website: www.gogratitude.org/devon. It requires T-O-T, time on task. So far I have listened to the 70-minute audio message and read the manual one time each. Although I’ve just started this program, my guess is that it helps take you all the way back to who you were in the beginning, as well as all the way forward in terms of becoming and being at your best to fulfill your life’s purpose. How cool is that?! We all need healing every day.

So not only good fortune, but peace at the front door as well. Thank you!

Tropical Hawaiian Ti Plants

Here’s a painting of tropical Hawaiian ti plants I finished on location this week, just as a sudden downpour drenched everything and left me in a puddle.
