heal.

Standard

one of the sweetest cards ever –

created by one of my kinders 

who “read” it aloud to me:

“I really, really, really  hope that your foot feels better very, very soon.”

(complete with a picture of me with one foot in the giant boot. )

“if you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.”

-carlos santana

laughter is the sun.

Standard

as the snowfall arrives

there is a soft quiet

a world of white outside

while inside

 the cottage is filled with color 

 the center of the snow globe

 i’m clearly drawn to whimsical animal art

and yes,

that is the wing of a  peacock kite you see in the upper left corner.

“laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”

invisible to the eye.

Standard

he was a ‘well-seasoned’ magic man

who came in

to entertain the youngest children

 while he wasn’t smooth

 his jokes and tricks and props and velvet

had been around a long time

the children loved every trick

opened their eyes wide with wonder

as doves and bunnies and coins and cards and wands and scarves

appeared and disappeared

in all kinds of unexpected places

 they eagerly

 volunteered to help him

 squealed and giggled and clapped with pure delight

until they lost their breath with laughter

he was a showstopper of the highest order

who had found the perfect audience.


“it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. “

-antoine de saint-exupery

have a ball.

Standard

i love her final gesture

and it made me give pause –

if i were to go today

i would leave behind the following things for others to enjoy:

$7.oo, a sock monkey, photographs, glitter, collage projects, letters and books.

i hope there is no fighting over the monkey.
