Meditation on Ashes

Ash Wednesday

I close my eyes
against dust
into my forehead.
Close them
against the reality of death.
Yet Christ has conquered
death –
what shall I fear?

actions and inactions –
the ways I bring death
in so many little ways
each day.
I fear this brokenness
in me
in you;
so I squeeze them

And all
can see
the ash
but me.

Ten Years!

It is beyond my comprehension that Jamie and I have been together for 10 years... but here we are.
I give thanks for every day.

Zen Zone

Zen Zone - Comfy Corner - Peaceful Place - My At-Home-Getaway...

I've switched around some space in order to hear better my creative muse (space? hearing? how do they go together? synesthesia! love that word!!! maybe that's my Muse's name? yes!).

Anyway, moved stuff around and played with other stuff and - voilá! second bedroom becomes my writing /creative space.
my writing space! 
including the collage I'm using as inspiration
books! books! books!
have I mentioned I love books?
this includes journals
again, writing space - this time with carved st. cecilia (by one of my church members)
she's the patron saint of poets (among other things)!
same again with prayer shawl
I love this spot
some goddess pieces, 2 journals I collaged, and my dragon candle with "wand" (stick)

ye olde Collage Closet

Haven't gotten a good pic of my Knitting Nook (aka, where I sit in a corner in a comfy pleather chair and read/journal/knit/etc)

Kendra has also created creative space this week!
