the woman who drinks in beauty everywhere - puddles, piles of sticks, sadness, the sky
the woman who gives and receives
the woman who isn't afraid to reveal
the woman who feels God at her shoulder - not admonishing, not vengeful, but the God who is love
the woman who sees creativity as an expression of that love and practises it everyday - sometimes just in the way she puts on her clothes or bluffs that her messy unbrushed hair is supposed to look like that...
the woman who is has friends who are true and rich of spirit (and if you are here reading this, know you are counted in this)
the woman who is learning what shit is hers and what shit is others
the woman who delights in a good swearword
the woman who feels silly as something she has earned
the woman who claims her right to stand on this beautiful, confounding, magnificent, miracle-filled planet and breathe deeply
The colour of the sky *the ocean * Elizabeth and Maeve * people who reach beyond the ordinary * genuine generosity *good food * watching things grow * the miracle of birth *a woman's power *tenderness in all its forms * the cycle of life * courage * people with a sense of fun * compassion * beautiful jewellery * art that is made from the heart - without a view to the purchaser or the market but made because it has to come *Clarissa Pincola Estes * grace

i welcome you with warmth and love to the thoughts that grab me .... and the way they come out of my fingers when i make the time in my day as a mother and artist and poodle walker to write them down.....
