One Vast Garden
"I find one vast garden spread out all over the universe.
All plants, all human beings, all higher mind bodies
are about in this garden in various ways ,
each has his own uniqueness and beauty.
Their presence and variety give me great delight.
Every one of you adds with his special feature to the glory of the garden."

Above are some snippets of the painting I'm working on for Art|Everywhere . This painting is on a beastly four by eight foot sheet of birch plywood. I think it is coming together nicely. The transformative powers of creating art are a reason I love life and love living.
This year I am taking part in Art| Everywhere with my friend Ella Davies. She creates these whimsical, fantastical creatures. I have always admired her sense of color, her creativity, and the ease by which she executes her lines while drawing. We are working separately, but will come together to create the actual installation. I can't wait to see what she comes up with, and how it goes together with my pieces.
Today is Ella's 9th birthday. I can't wait to see what she's doing at the age of 10. Happy Birthday, Ella!

this is the week where I have really seen Henry and Annie come together as best friends, as brother and sister. Last night they begged me to let them stay together in Henry's room. I replied "just for a bit." After they snuggled up, I couldn't resist listening in- they have started having wonderful conversations. They were quiet for a bit, and then I heard Henry tell Annie "I love you, Annie." Annie replied "Love you, Henry." And then my heart melted in to a billion golden drops of pure heavenly sunshine. A moment Mommy's live for. I'm so glad they have each other, and I'm so glad Mike and I have them.
