Perhaps you too need small daily reminders during this season leading up to winter solstice and Christmas. Reminders to your soul and heart that they are important players and allowed to be in charge. And that this season offers rich opportunity to connect to something deep & profound. Like LOVE. Like COMPASSION. And like FORGIVENESS. I have been pondering a lot about forgiveness lately and the enormous power that releases when we learn to forgive, instantly, rather than hold on to stress and hurt. Forgive ourselves and others. Simply and quietly letting it go…..now.
Here are two reminders I keep close to heart:
“Quiet now” Original sold, signed prints available HERE.
Text in the painting reads:
“Quiet now. Allow the pieces of life to settle in their own way and time.
Even a shaken world can be transformed to a wonderful mosaic – with time”
And from one of my all times favorite books:
“Today, why not ask for the creative and physical energy you’ll need, not just to survive The holiday season, but to enjoy it”.
Sarah Ban Breathnach.
Oh yes, beautiful advise. Thank you Sarah.
Wishing us all courage to pause long enough to feel our true priorities.

“Fly!” (A song I wrote last winter) Text HERE
Each one of us have our own unique set of wings. They are created from passion, from our courage to be ourselves, to love and to do the best we can with the abilities we have been given. It’s not big and difficult things that make up our wings, we are all born with these abilities.
(“Fly” – the painting – prints available here. Buy original? Contact me)
But sometimes we forget. Like a bird in an open cage, we stay and the idea that we can fly freely simply don´t occur. But we can, if we want to. All we have to do is spread our wings and try! And choose to trust life that so generously has given us all these human abilities in the first place.
(“Quiet now” Painting sold, prints available HERE.)
All those pieces of life…all part of the puzzle, let´s embrace them the best we can. Haven´t we seen over and over that they all have a part to play? Even the odd ones that doesn´t seem to fit at first. So often they become the important learning seen from a distance. Maybe just for today we can choose to take a deep breath. And trust that all is well.
