without so much as a whisper sometimes...
I try to notice them as much as possible...
a bluejay feather laying on the grass in my path~
a barred owl's song at dusk...
a basket full of ripe tomatoes and corn~
a winged visitor to my herb garden.
My days are usually spent creating,
stitching, painting, designing...
and I am prone to be more introspective
when doing these things...
focused solely on my art, meeting deadlines, shipping & myself.
Lately, I'm becoming more and more aware of the wonderful creations around me,
in the form Gifts from Mother Nature herself.
(the new glasses are a plus!)
It's these quiet little Gifts (as I call them) that recharge my creative spirit & soul..
taking a walk around my property can yield more productivity from me
than any trek to a big city museum full of man-made culture.
when you take a break from your creating, when you tire of the repetition,
whether it be from stitching, painting, hooking~
go outside and look for your Gifts...
they'll be there waiting for you, ready to lend a tiny helping hand of inspiration...
Wishing you all a gift-filled day!!!
Blessed be, my friends~
