“I don’t want to be stinky poo poo girl, I want to be happy flower child.” Drew Barrymore
“Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck. Your profession is what you were put on earth to do with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.”
- Vincent Van Gogh
"Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky."
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Bîja bubble, I created this drawing just after Nelson Mandela passed on. I think of it has his spirit soaring over the Cape Verde Islands.
Enter the quiet immensity of your own presence
Awaken to the mystery of being here
and enter the quiet immensity of your own being.
Have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
Receive encouragement when new frontiers beckon.
Respond to the call of your gift
and the courage to follow its path.
Let the flame of anger free you of falsity.
May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame.
May anxiety never linger about you.
May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul.
Take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.
Be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift
woven around the heart of wonder.
