Two peas in a pod

They sat and watched the sun rise

And said, “I love you.”

Art Prescription:  Relationships are precious.

What does your web catch?

Art Prescription:  So if your web catches ease with a focus on gratitude and all the good things in your life… what  do you weave? If your web catches stress and always looking for things to go wrong…what do you weave?

So like this spider who weaves her best web ever, can you expect good things to happen? Can you get away from the spider next door who says, “we won’t catch anything, it’s useless.”

Weave your web with joy and good things will come…

Looking and hoping

Wishing, expecting, dreaming

Life’s many milestones.

Art Prescription:  Life is a series of milestones…pregnant, new baby, preschool, kindergarden, high school graduation, college graduation, engagement, marriage….Celebrate!

Expectation 72

A few days ago

And you came home with flowers

The words to tell you.

Art Prescription:  Some days surprise you to no end….and you don’t forget them.


Stretch, yawn, and repeat

Wake up slow, no alarm clock

Saturday morning.

Art Prescription:  While for the most part I like being up early, makes the day longer, it is on occasion totally blissful to sleep-in.


Side by side they walk

One carries pole, other net

Summertime fishing.

Art Prescription:  I have many fish tales from my summers at grandma’s. Not a worry in the world, we’d head off to a relative’s pond with a tub of earth worms and a bamboo pole. Truth is the last time I went fishing was when I “hooked” my date’s head…yep I set the hook!! Now my husband, we don’t fish. We rode back to Chapel Hill, hook and line in tow, to have a physician friend excise the hook. I guess my years of summers in the country, my attempt to show – see I’m an outdoors kind-of -girl, did not make a grand impression. He married me anyways!!

Twirl! Double helix.

Life winds itself in and out

Meets back in middle!

Art Prescription:  Final workshop today in this series of Art Prescription Art Journaling. Thanks to a great group!! That and a walk with a friend got me thinking about relationships and how they spiral in and out. Two people constantly changing and hopefully, in a marriage or partnership, they spiral back together as one for a while! Each person being whole and living life, intertwined with another. Life is grand, and oh so fun to share!!
