Mary Frost from our poetry group, ParaTactics, agreed to me posting one of her poems from The Banister so this post is dedicated to her wonderful poem which so beautifully captures my feelings from my last October post.
Today I should be madly cleaning and tidying as our LUNA meeting (Lakehead Unfinished Novels Association) is at my home this evening. It was supposed to be last week but had to be cancelled due to Glenn's daughter (and him a little) being sick. I was very pleased with the cleanliness and tidiness of the house last week...but this week is another matter. However so many things about this morning seem to shine and sparkle in spite of the pile of dishes in the sink and dust bunnies on the floor.
At the moment, I'm happily holed away in my studio with Harlequin incense burning and Christmas songs from my Spotify "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday" list playing. When I lit my incense I was taken by the luscious purples and indigios in my otherwise clear moon-shaped crystal.
The breakfast fruit on my plate before I added French toast on top looked pretty as a picture.
I just have to write on the back of my November ATCs and they can be sent off in their respective directions. Each month I create 8 Artist Trading Cards, 4 of each design, inspired by a prompt from one of my online art courses, Life Book. I keep 1 of each design and send the others (1 of each design) to my dear friend Linda in BC, an elderly couple also in BC who were gifted them by their daughter's friend (Karen donated money to my son-in-law Jonathan's new spiritual centre in Tucson in return for me sending ATCs to this couple for a year) and another randomly chosen Life Book participant who will send hers (usually a woman) to me. This month my Life Book partner happens to be in Quebec City but I have exchanged with people all over the world.
However mundane your day may be or however mundane your tasks on this day may be, I hope you can still be open to all that sparkles in your world. Including yourself!
