Like peering through glass
I see your soul, transparent
In all its kaleidoscope colors
Fine art on display
Onlookers marvel and wonder
How you were made
Like exotic creatures in a cage
And the signs all around say,
“Caution! Do not touch!”

I’ve been speechless for the past week. This was completely unexpected, and I feel quite touched and honored by this gift from Alyssa. She created a beautiful calligraphy piece with a line from one of my personal poems called The Journey. Alyssa, you are a creative writer and artistic talent through and through. Thank you for sharing your gifts with all of us this past school year. This will live in my yoga/art room/library and continue to inspire me for years to come. A thousand thanks! ❤
“For I journeyed to the rainbow’s end
Faith turned to gold, but you, my friend
Are the treasure my heart desires.”
I painted this about a month and a half ago. It’s a love rock; two sides of the same rock. The first pic (Love) doesn’t show the glitter finish, but it has it now. Looks more like the flip-side (Destiny). It’s about the size of the palm of my hand.
I had fun painting this – something new and different. And hopeful. I may put it outside, but for now, it sits on an end table in the living room. I was trying to model a similar rock that someone gave me when I first moved to Asheville. It’s smaller and blue; it says believe and the colors are beautiful. I will add a pic of that one soon.
Rocks are everywhere. Would love to paint more and maybe hide them as surprises for others to find or perhaps just give them away as little love gifts.

I love how this turned out. It was my first painting on canvas. It’s about 16×20. I was also honored to use my sister’s former boyfriend’s paintbrush; the canvas had been a gift from her. Andrew had been an artist and he died unexpectedly several years ago. The painting currently hangs in my sunroom.
I know it’s simplistic and it probably looks like something a five-year-old would do, but I love it. It’s very symbolic and meaningful for me. This has been my screensaver on my phone for the past several weeks.
Would still love to do an art class someday. Maybe soon. 🙂

Always touched to get these notes…
