Neutrality/ Inside the Now

This collage feels like a portrait of being "Inside the Now". Whether it  happens when we hear  a child's smile, feel a dog's breath, or see an image of Pema Chodren.  We  already know these feelings and simply need to recreate them. I don't know of a better way to do this than by being neutral. It is easy to lose our center and go into rages and lacks. It is  also easy to  see everything as being perfect. I don't believe that either way is honorable to ourselves.

Patience and Gel Plates

Since the eclipse, I have woken up each morning with specific images and words. This morning was the same.
My dream depicted a gell plate with a variety of images on it and part of the plate was still soft. Then, I heard the word patience.

Selfishness and Allowing, Part 2

During the eclipse, I began painting using yupo paper and Dr. Ph Martin's watercolors. Sometimes, I start with a photograph like the groundhog.  The photo usually evokes a memory or feeling that I wish to recreate. About ten years ago, I took a Past Life Regression  Hypnotherapy training class with Dr. Brian Weiss at Omega Institue. During one of the breaks, I noticed this big guy eating a gorgeous orange flower.

Post Eclipse Selfishness

There was so much energy around the eclipse that just hours after it is over, I feel  a great void. The visual of the eclipse was hardly noticeable in Sarasota.  However I  did feel tremendous amounts of energy leading up to the event  and it made it challenging to sit still, sleep, and  focus. Yet I found that I was able to have more intense physical work outs in the gym with very little effort. These are my thoughts post eclipse and clearly indicate how much things have already shifted.

California Dreaming

Add caption
During the 1970"s, I lived in the bay area for about 6 years.  It was  definitely a unusual and exciting time. What made it special were the people, the creativity  and the newness of thinking out of the box. The fifties and early sixties was  so very predictable and stable.  I remember feeling that I would suffocate if I stayed in the East Coast and got married as many of my friends were doing. So when I went out to Ca, I had options that were unavailable back East. I was able to express more of who I was through music, art, living situations, relationships, food, classes and traveling. Its hard to imagine that I felt that my only employment options were to become a Physical Therapist or a Teacher. Relationships options were to marry or date in order to get married. Food was very bland and uninspiring.
In California, there were so many more options and we were so  high on those choices. ......
There was magic in the air and  all things were possible. There was an openness that was delicious.
