ACCEPT LIFE FULLY

PUT YOUR WHOLE HEART INTO IT

MAKE PEACE WITH IT ALL

*

On the water’s beauty

frolicking in the waves

jumping over imaginary hoops made of crystal

dear mammals of peace, love, and harmony

an escort to the joyful side of life

a symbol of protection

through my resurrection

a life examined

and idolized

I dig deep to my inner strength

and I bow in Grace

for the surprise visit

and the message that ALL

is exactly as it should be.

BLESSITUDE!

Hi friends!  I drew this Zentangle”esque” picture to commemorate a super special day I had this summer.  My dear sister was in town we had not seen each other in a year.  We went to the boardwalk for a stroll and when we were done we sat on a bench and looked out to the ocean.

I grew up going to this beach and spent many a summer day looking out on this sea.  I had NEVER seen a dolphin here before.  On this special day, a day that was filled with much love and laughter (and let me tell you when the two of us start laughing you can hear us for miles!!) we saw a pod of dolphins frolicking in the sun…and we knew we were blessed!

I dedicate this post to my sister!  I love you so much and I thank you for being the beautiful person you are…God made us sisters and I am so grateful we are FRIENDS!! ❤ ❤

I decided to include another photo of the drawing.  I almost think I liked it better at this stage.  As in life, I sometimes go overboard 😉  I’m happy I took photos at various stages because I was able to capture it before my pens went to town.

Also just a little aside, this is my 300th post here on my blog!  I know it is not a lot compared to some, but I am amazed I have posted 300 times.  The reason it is easy, and something I love, is because of you guys!  Thank you for enriching my life…BLESSITUDE ❤ ❤

There are times I wish

I had more than just two hands

Oh! What I’d get done!!

Then I think of the mental ability it would take to coordinate 8 arms and hands…ugh!  I’m good with the two beautiful hands I have!  I’m good with EVERYTHING I have 🙂

I’ve been a little obsessed with octopi lately…so I decided to draw one.  I may not be done with them in the form of art…

Hope you all are vibrating in the energy of love ❤

Haiku ~ 6/1/15 & Coagulation

Hard to express things

If I live in a bubble

Coagulation

Coagulation: the act of changing from a liquid into a thickened mass

Have I become a thickened mass?

Or is the clot that formed in my calf a warning…beware.

You are not allowing life to flow freely to you.

Allow.  Accept.

Everything that happens is meant to happen.

Every lesson you are offered is there for a reason.

Every step you take, even the steps with pain, take you closer to the realization of your soul.

It has been a trying time of late.  Many changes have occurred and I realize now that even though I have weathered the storms much better than I might have four years ago, I can still see that I have a propensity to try to control life.  I can almost act a bully as I hold on, squeeze, and try to reshape the events that appear like a lump of molding clay.

I have a preconceived notion of what life is “supposed” to look like, “supposed” to be.  When it doesn’t fit that mold I revert to the feelings of helplessness and fear and I somehow, mistakenly believe that I have the power to change things.

As I recuperate from my knee surgery and the subsequent blood clot in my calf, and the allergic reaction to the first blood thinner I was put on, my wish is to have patience (as a very dear friend reminded me 🙂 ) and grace, and to allow life to flow unimpeded…without coagulation…and to accept whatever appears next.

Blessitude

The Keys of Life

2015-01-04 07.26.57

One step beyond time

on the keys of life

the beautiful music we played

when we sang

and danced

and laughed

and ran through the years

wind in our face

hair flying

carefree

no worries

no struggles

freedom

Yes…play a song for me

on the keys of life

dance backwards

and the years erase

the lines on my face

the scars on my heart

The soul becomes free

to sing like a bird

in opera tones

without constraints

a life lived simply

on the keys of life

Blessitude

Many blessings my friends…may you all play beautiful music on the keys of life!!

The Zentangle”esque” art started with the floating “ribbon” piano keys.  They appeared in my mind, the way many words do, like a neon sign behind my eyes.  I sketched the keys and the rest is history.  The art was created over the past month and a half.  I had a bout of insomnia a night ago and the art finished itself…and the poem flowed from my pen.  Have a blessed Monday!  ❤ Lorrie
