Color-ly Love

Here’s a little something to get your eyes ready for spring colors. “Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson “Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”  –Pedro Calderon de la Barca “Colors are brighter when the mind is open.” -Adriana Alarcon   “Let the blueContinue reading “Color-ly Love”

Free Spirit Leap Year!

How exciting! We have come to another leap year! What will you do with your extra day this year? Perhaps a marriage proposal will arise? In Irish history, it was called Bachelor’s day. Women were allowed to purpose to men on a leap day. If the man said no, he was forced to pay a penalty. HeContinue reading “Free Spirit Leap Year!”

Free Spirit Flashback

I came across a bunch of old sketchbooks and school projects the other day. It’s really funny to look back and see the drawings you did as a kid and compare them through the years. I thought it would be neat to do a timeline of my work for my latest post. I wasn’t ableContinue reading “Free Spirit Flashback”

Albion: The Wisdom of a Horse

I came across a “note” that I wrote on my Facebook page last year in September. It was still meaningful to me so I figured I should add it to my blog! It is about a dear old friend named Albion. “I have been suffering lately from artist’s block or perhaps more of a mental block….ForContinue reading “Albion: The Wisdom of a Horse”

If You Want A Rainbow…

 “The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” -Dolly Parton Even though I’ve listened to country music my entire life I had never heard that quote until today. It stood out to me. It made me smile. I think we have all dealt with some rain inContinue reading “If You Want A Rainbow…”

Free Spirit Realm

This is something I have never exposed before. Honestly though, that’s no surprise. I keep a lot of things to myself but that is all changing now. I like the word exposed because I feel naked sometimes when I share things that are important to me. Don’t we all! This week’s exposure is going toContinue reading “Free Spirit Realm”

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Have you gotten snow where you live yet? Perhaps you don’t get snow. Then you’re probably not waiting for it like I am. I live in upstate New York. It’s pretty high up there compared to the rest of the U.S. So you can guess that we get TONS of snow up here. There wasContinue reading “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!”

Pagan Holidae: A Horse of Leisure

There is a new Pegasus in the spirit realm. His name is Pagan Holidae. He is a short and stout palomino with spunk and spirit. His best friend in fact was called Spirit. This Pegasus named Holidae galloped across the physical world, as a horse, alongside my mother. This is their story. My mother, beingContinue reading “Pagan Holidae: A Horse of Leisure”

Footloose & Fancy-free

I had a random thought. I know… this could be dangerous! Have you ever heard the saying, “No one will be looking at your feet.”? Well first of all that is a bold face lie. I can’t tell you how many times I have received compliments from someone about my boots. I also can’t tell youContinue reading “Footloose & Fancy-free”

Dodger: A Big Bad Pit

Have you ever met a dog that you swear just loved to get a rise out of you? For me, that was Dodger. It was a game to him to see how much it would take to annoy me. What do I expect? He was my father-in-law’s dog! When my family and I moved fromContinue reading “Dodger: A Big Bad Pit”
