Heart sing

The morning awakens,

day stretching out to the horizon,

blue sky with sun rising,

solid ground beneath the feet

and birds singing in grateful awakening.

What makes your heart sing?

Open Spaces

The sky is the limit as birds travel the world. An inner GPS system, electromagnetic capabilities, smells or sights, birds find their way unerringly in these wide open spaces. Maybe a birds eye view helps. Much of our lives lack these open space journeys in the frenetic pace of our days that leave us feeling spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically weary and worn.

What inner system guides you into open spaces?

Sacred songs

“And so by fateful chance the Negro folk-song — rhythmic cry of the slave — stands today not simply as the sole American music, but as the most beautiful expression of human experience born this side the seas.” W.E.B. Du Bois, The Souls of Black Folk

What songs rise from your experience?

Invisible power

Air, wind, breath, Spirit – all invisible and without form or color or texture yet giving life and shape to everything.

How are you invisibly sustained?

Eyes wide open

“To be an artist it is necessary to live with the eyes wide open, to breathe in the colors of mountain and sky, to know the sound of leaves rustling, the smell of snow, the texture of bark.” ~ Jan Phillips

How do you live with eyes wide open?
