days are going by faster and faster... i love the age i am right now, but sometimes time moves too quickly.. i try to take time to be still and enjoy my moments, breathing, by the reservoir with liam. not that i'm not a young person anymore, but youth really is wasted on the young. i am just now beginning to realize the privileges and power i have as a human being with a willing mind. probably 20 years of my life were clouded in fear and doubt because of negative thought patterns, materialism, religion, and death. i suppose i was a shallowly happy girl for much of my life, which is better than many human being's lives, i know. if only then, when i was very young and resilient, i had known how to be aware of my thoughts and to be wary of information i was given. i wonder what i would be like if i had been raised without religion or the media. both really did scar me a bit. well, perhaps i am better off this way. i must be.. the challenges have made me stronger and i do cherish this life i've led, so much. i am happy with the being i am becoming.. i sometimes just wish i had arrived here sooner! it's much more comfortable and enjoyable. with every passing day i feel safer and safer, like im heading home. age is a high price for wisdom, someone said this, and i agree. i'll just keep exercising, meditating, eating well, breathing, wearing sunblock, and working hard on purusha so that i age nicely and maybe have a little $ for some kids one day. i do love it right now, right where i am. what an exciting beautiful time to be alive!
sometimes i paint i paint for fun, and i think this is why i love it so much. there is no pressure to perform or sell, it's all good times. i set up a little etsy shop for my artwork. we'll see what happens! check it out!
etsy favorites i've been so busy with new designs for summer/fall! i need more blog time :) for now, here are some of my favorite items on etsy. i love etsy :) surfing that site is like a hobby of mine! i love to support a real artist too!
real love sometimes i am so overwhelmed with how much love i feel for my little buddy guy, liam. he is such a kind little deer, a real comedian, and he is my personal trainer. liam has been my constant companion for the past 5 years, and now it's hard for me to even imagine what my life was like before him. my boy has taught me so much about love and patience and deep breathing! i love this dog!
water and buds this weekend i reflected on the calming presence of water and the arousing qualities of buds in springtime.
