winter surrender
let go of expectation
sunflowers return


 I try to see something new each day. The art of seeing is essential to any creative work in my humble opinion.  My favorites are the ones that stop me in my tracks!  Like so many folks I have a very busy mind that I struggle to quiet.  By creating this practice it has given me many opportunities to pause and be with a new wonder.  I love to wonder about wonders.  These little seeings can be just the jolt my creative process needs to get out of a rut.  But mostly, they provide a pause which is that moment of peace I need to heal from a frustration. These seeings are grounding for me and bring me to the present.  I will admit to laughing out loud with joy over some of my discoveries, they are a moments of childlike wonder!

  1. Love seeing that sunflower. It's a reminder that warmth will come again, no matter how far away it may seem!

  2. It's nice to see the sun out today. The snow is compacting again. I'm about 2 1/2 hours northeast of you!

    Our ducks are not excited about our first day of spring.

  3. I love seeing those reminders of warmer times! They're just around the bend again! :-)

    Here's my moment this week:

    Happy Spring!
