Looking Out From Within (click on image to enlarge)

“A single event can awaken within us
a stranger totally unknown to us.
To live is to be slowly born.”
~from The Little Prince by Antione de Saint-Expuery
Hello dear hearts seems a while since we had a chat…though you were in my thoughts. We all have our busy things we must or wish to do..right? As I mentioned in the past I had some things to do with the business side. :O Also, I am preparing to paint a new series..possibly a sunflower series. I do love sunflowers!
I realized that I have never posted this piece, other than on “about”, and it is my avatar. Funny, I did not know what avatar meant before this blog….
…”a virtual image representing a person.”
Hmmm…my avatar fits then. Even as a child NO MATTER WHAT was going on in my world it was as if I was looking out from within…through a VERY large key hole within my mind. I managed to dwell in happiness….the thorny HEART vines and wasp nest have their own meanings (I’ll leave that up to your imagination..hee, hee).
I think I have always been an old soul.
Do you ever feel that way?
I love the Little Prince quote..especially this line:
to live is to be slowly born.
Live….love…my darlings…and remember every breath is rebirth!
Well, I know I have not said much of anything tonight and I apologize, but I am at Drayton Island. As usual it is a challenge to do anything on the computer here so this will be it for tonight. I am in a strange sort of mood anyway maybe ’tis the canvas world calling me again, and I can’t wait to pick up the brushes. Besides, sometimes it is best to just look out without speaking…eh? :)
My heart is full tonight!
Love, light, and laughter to all,
