In the rain the air is filled with dancing globes.
The Date Tree shimmers.

In the rain

My secret garden is in my mind.
It is where all the trees I have loved live.
I go there when it is raining.
I love rainy days.

My daughter drew me a picture years ago.
She wrote in calligraphy one of my favorite sayings.
I framed her drawing.
It hangs in the guest bath in June.

This saying is how I felt about being a parent.
It is how I feel about my art filled life.
It is a process.
I am kind to my way.

I befriend me in my growth.

Fallen Petals

I leave the petals where they fall.

I like the look.

I do help the fallen petals.
On the coffee table I placed a crystal bowl under the vase of the Lilies.
I wanted the petals to fall into the bowl.
They did.
Instant potpourri.

When all the petals have fallen I will take the fallen petals and the spent stems out to the compost. Full use.

Out of the Ashes

Our son is moving.
He is beginning the next chapter in his life.
I celebrate this change for him.

I am changing too.
This is my story of how out of the ashes rises the Phoenix.
Hopefully it will not take me 500 years.

I embrace the Artful Life.
I live conscientiously.
I live respectfully.

I live the artful life.
