Holes that let the Sunshine In

There are times when holes are great especially when they allow the sunshine in on really cold days.

My Little Friend

Each evening a small owl perches in a tree just outside my dining room window. He gazes into my world with its lights and friendly dinners going on. When I dine alone, I move next to the window and linger there to spend more time with my little friend.

Sacred Waters

Atop a mountain, the water cascades smoothly over terraces and comes to rest peacefully and still just beyond the rock wall. It's a sacred location hardly known to mankind. Unusual entrances above ground lead down to homes below where residence live inside the mountain. Some say they swim often in the water and they never look old.

Her Own Design

Jane had been entering the "Original Design" contest in her hometown for the past 14 years. She had never won, not even an honorable mention. This year would be different for Jane felt she needed to create her design much larger and elaborate to get attention. Well, she made heads turn and heard an overwhelming comments. So Jane finally won her Grand Prize.

Owl House

Tree dwellers are migrants. Whenever there is rain or snow or really cold weather, they must give up their home and head south. But when the trees have longer seasonal time, they do keep their leaves (like in Florida). I imagine that tree dwellers may have elaborate homes.

The Floor

My friend saved money money by purchasing mix and match tiles on sale when she needed to re-tile her den floor. Due to a lighting issue, the dark tiles really changed the ambiance since the furniture was also dark.

Quilt Dreams

When I was young, my family and I were invited to a great aunts house for a big holiday celebration. Members of my mother's family arrived with lots of pot luck food and someone brought the biggest turkey that I had ever seen. We all ate and celebrated with music and singing the rest of the day. Children were allowed to participate until midnight. I was given a small bed in the corner of a big teal green room. The bed was covered with a very strange homemade quilt. Once the light was turned off and the door was shut, the room suddenly became quite creepy. I became plagued with noises from the house including snoring from people who were already asleep. I wrapped myself in the quilt so that it completely covered my head to drown out the atmosphere. I became warm and had wonderful dreams that night which I have always felt was because of the very strange quilt.

Many Facets of the day

I often have days that seem like a multi-cut gem with things to do, places to go, and people to see.

Orbs Incoming

Small orbs are drawn into an inviting energy during the midday. They are escorted by the sun.

My Abstract Glasses

I have worn glasses most of my life and I see things differently than most people so painting in abstract fits me perfectly.

Be Bold

Go forth and fulfill and love what you do as you work faithfully toward your dreams and inner visions. It does not get handed to you on a silver platter. A spiritual message of encouragement to do what we love and really work at what we truly love.

Troubled Waters

The shadows of the wallpaper magically moved and flickered about causing shape which looked like ships that almost capsized in waters of green, pink, yellow, green, brown, and black.

Owl Friend

The owl first visited a large oak tree in my back yard. A few days later she returned with two smaller owls and they stayed in the big oak tree. I sat out on the back porch every evening just to listen to the mother owl with her "who, who, who". I felt that she was acknowledging that she knew I was there. I considered them to be good neighbors. "Who" would have known.

Mountains between the Sun and Moon

Someone once said there is a dimension between the Sun and the Moon that can only be seen when the moon is directly above the setting sun. Only at the precise time a red mountain range appears for about seven minutes.

Bubbly Town

Native Sunshine

A sign of a very happy future.
