isn't she lovely.....as she turned 16

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderfull
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love
Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love ......
stevie wonder


and then there's the beauty of simple sights- the kitchen sink made a stunning still life scene.
today, everything appears beautiful.

easing back in...

when there's too much to say, i get quite. to ease back in, let me say the waters of the bahamas that i feasted on last week helped with the anxiety/fear/and pain of the oral surgery i had the day after we returned. four days later- i am healing and of course get more lessons in life. while i try and grasp the lessons -i remember the incredible color of the ocean.
i have been trying to process the good fortune, of the recent art show, that i was a part of at the artropolis in chicago. the possibilities i had always imagined, seem to be occurring, and i find myself uncertain and questioning my talent -am i good enough? happily, i am appreciating the situation (most often) and breathing fully and just doing the best i can.....
with the boys home from college and maya's 2nd year of high school coming to an end, i get diverted from my thoughts and self doubts. i am truly enjoying the peace i feel of having them sleeping in their beds at home.
