Dream Weaver October 3, 2016

A fall dream weaver

Work of spun art in hay room

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…

Haiku May 30, 2013 Fishing

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!!

Haiku May 13, 2013 Double Helix

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!!

Haiku March 21, 2013 Gentleness

Gentleness of spring

Warmth and care like summer breeze

Share it with people.

Art Prescription:  A day at my nursing job always reminds me of how much I have to be thankful for! Knowing there are many things I cannot change, my hope is to deliver a moment of kindness and warmth. What do you want to be remembered for? What brings you pride and serenity?







Haiku October 3, 2012 No Kissing Allowed

No kissing allowed

He leaves, I feel forgotten

Colds are not sexy!!!!!

Art Prescription:  I’m writing with a box of tissue on hand. Do you remember your first kiss? A simple cold would not keep me from attempting to share my germs with my 7th grade boyfriend. All things change. After 21 years of marriage, here I am almost 2 1/5 weeks in the guest room. The first week was me trying to not get my beloved’s cold. The next week,  allowing him to sleep without waking to my persistent cough. Ain’t marriage grand!! Can I get a kiss hello? A hug?
