The Call Of The Sea and Sand

I’ve got a vision stuck in my head, my mind, my soul! I can’t shake it! I go to bed with it, I awake with it and I carry it with me throughout the whole day…while I’m drawing, cooking, practicing yoga, doing chores….all the time man! It’s always with me. It’s so totally out of…

Be Like The Cat

I think my cats are probably smarter than I am. They know how to live well. They eat when they’re hungry, the sleep when they’re sleepy even if that mean a cat nap here and there. They stop to just be…still…in the moment…observing life around them without trying to participate…just watching peacefully especially out the…

A Tropical State Of Mind…free of drones

I practiced yoga outside again yesterday. Ashtanga. The warm spring sunshine on my muscles felt so great. I moved in and out of postures so fluidly. Like a stream, a current of energy, a petal on the wind. A hawk even circled and sang out as I practiced! It was magic! Except for the drone…

I Want To Watch My Sunflowers Grow Taller Like I Did My Kids

I’m cold. It’s cold again. I love winter in the winter but our winter was less than wintery and now it’s Spring and it’s so chilly! I want to thaw out now. I want to practice yoga outside like I did last week. I want to walk barefooted on dewy grass in the early morning,…

Raising A Hippie and Letting One Grow and Go

I want so much to be near a whale! How magical that would be. Sorry, I just saw whales on tv. Now I’m watching monkeys stop a cat fight! I hate it when Piper and Bijoux fight as they still do from time to time but this is not that time thank goodness! Hope you…

Simple Living

Confession…I have a strong addiction, no, not to coffee, that’s not an addiction that’s a necessity 😀 My addiction is to Fixer Upper. I love love love that show! I love Joanna Gaines and her decorating style and the way she and Chip, her husband and probably her lobster (soul mate), get along remind me…

Monday Morning

Wow, y’all I wish you could see my view right now. It is spectacular! So beautiful, very chilly but very beautiful. It’s just starting to get light behind the trees so there’s an orange glow peeking through that ombres into the palest of pale blues ever that rises to a robin’s egg blue. I mean…

Sunday…Kitchen Revamp :D

There’s little to no use even looking at last week’s goals since all I did was work on illustrating the book (work in progress)….So, we’ll just skip that this time and since the work on the book will continue onto next week really no need to set new goals until this job is completed. And…
