This sketch looks at common threads that run through our lives, throughout our lifetimes…

QUITE TINY BOXES

tiny little boxes

that we live in lifetime after lifetime

…insulated, separated…

karmically irradiated

sometimes it’s hard to see the connecting threads.

Another intuitive sketch with words; I’m not sure I understand the meaning or significance of all the words…

Comments are welcome, might help me make better sense of them!

“What a jumble.

“Many others fill our spaces and offer examples of ways we may awaken…

“Allah seeps in where there are gaps needing filling and makes things whole

” ‘Jesus’ lives in a circle that is a closed loop

“Jesus lives on vibrantly in the hearts of all…

“God is bigger than one dream

“(this was an enso until everyone arrived)

“Krsna simply… is love.

“U are greater than the Universe or you.

“Buddhas wish no one would notice them… but listen anyway.

“All ° bring us to one still point

“of being together as oNe.”

I hope all my kind mothers has a wonderful Mothers’ Day!


All right, Post A Day friends, let’s go diving!

Actually, I first wished to be an “Injun” and live off of nuts and berries in the wild; forget the Cowboys (well, until I saw my first Clint Eastwood Western, but that’s another story)…

Then, I read some Norse mythology and aspired vigorously to Viking-hood… But the gender issue presented itself pretty quickly, not to mention the dilemma of bringing historical figures into the present…

I finally settled, quietly and for some time, on the fantasy of plunging into azure depths as a photographer for Jacques Cousteau. I didn’t want be Jacques Couteau, I just wanted to dive in, swim around, and record visions of incredible things that live in another world. I wanted to observe, record, and simply enjoy.

How ironic… after so many years of believing I was doing other things, I now realize that I am living my dream come true…

Can you tell that green block is a diving board, and I’m going in again?

Thank you for joining me! Come on in, the water is perfect!


I sat down a few days ago and tried a new approach to my sketch journal…

I just followed my “intuition”, and the pen went on a rather wild journey across the paper, in a line that jumps and squiggles and sweeps back and forth, up and down, with WORDS interspersed.

I hope the resolution on this image is high enough that those who are interested can make out the words and follow their progression…

One thing I understand is that they can really be read in any sequence, carrying different meanings, all of which are accurate.

I’m not sure if this sketch is completed yet… Every day seems to fill in a little more of the “gaps”!


This week marks a number of anniversaries, and I’ve discovered that certain types of reflection serve no useful purpose.

Sometimes, the deeper we go, the darker it gets.

Sometimes, to find the light, we just need to look away from the mirror.

A simple photograph in a brightly lit room…

whence the darkness?

Step away from the mirror, and all becomes more bright.

A whole new layer of meaning emerges for the word “selflessness”.

Namaste.


Swirling vortex, sheer force of will …

Tornadoes possess  the powerful ability to clear and raze anything that cannot withstand their relentless forces…

Outer tornadoes may be seen clearly with the physical eyes, and felt with the outer senses. They instantaneously generate fear and respect as well as sympathy and kind actions.

Inner tornadoes clear the ground in intensely personal ways, sometimes undetected by our inner radar before they barrel through our lives… They mysteriously transform in ways that may become apparent to others only over time…


There are many lines in life to be drawn, aren’t there?

I miss my blogging friends, I hope you’re all well!
