Sweetness


The aura of the rising sisters


Taming it

Soulful/>


I am fine, I am feeling sweet and enthusiastic ^___^
I'm feeling so alive again.
I don't really know what to think about my latest work,but I really enjoy my progress,I'm not an amazing painter but I'm improving and I get all excited like a fae child :-)

I have made new friends, or I am in the process of making new friends,soul bonds, I am savouring it!
This really makes me smile and it brightens my day to get a letter and emails everyday.

It's lovely.
I know some ties aren't meant to last for ever,but I really am thankful for the new creative and deep minds that have come across my path recently.

I thank you for your time and your delicate friendship!


The Buddha's Words on Kindness (Metta Sutta)

This is what should be done
By one who is skilled in goodness,
And who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech.
Humble and not conceited,
Contented and easily satisfied.
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways.
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.
Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.
Wishing: In gladness and in saftey,
May all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be;
Whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small,
The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born,
May all beings be at ease!

Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings:
Radiating kindness over the entire world
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
Outwards and unbounded,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.
Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down
Free from drowsiness,
One should sustain this recollection.
This is said to be the sublime abiding.
By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.-- Albert Camus

I'm glad to see that you're feeling more encouraged! I can see it in your artwork... they seem to be filled with light today!

You asked on my blog what kind of job I have... I work at two different jobs. My main job is in an office doing Accounts Payable. I also work for a tax-preparation company, but today is my LAST DAY at that job until September! I am SO excited!!!!

Breakfast IS a wonderful meal to eat out. Since it is the BEST meal of the day, I love having it prepared by professionals! :o)

I'm glad you're making new friends... you seem like a wonderful person to be friends with.

I love the pictures with the cat! She looks a lot like my roomate's cat, Luka.

Helene, you are a great friend and encourager. It is nice to know that someone who gives so much to others art has given it back to herself. Your women are always beautiful and nourishing to us. Keep painting! As for your poem, it was exactly what I deserved to hear today. I shall copy it, print it, and place it in my journal to remind me of all I can be. Have a grand day!
