Calling for next weekends DC: Threshold

I enjoy considering thresholds

stepping from my door to the outside world
from my car to the outside world
from one breath to the next
from one season to another

i find being aware of that place
the place between
that pause
the crossing 
from one place to another

brings me present
to the magic in the mundane

I took this portrait of a snowflake today,
it is so beautiful!
Evidence that we have crossed the threshold of autumn
into winter!
It would be lovely if you will join us with any inspiration for our theme:

next weekend: December 4-6th
it could be art
photography, food, writing
however you feel inspired
after you post 
come to my blog
there will be a linky for you to sign up so that people can visit you

DC: Abundance

I have a client
who likes to have an abundance of these bracelets that I make.

She wears them every day
she gives them as gifts.

I started this full time beaded jewelry business when my son was a wee lad
so that I could be a stay at home mom.

Now, it is something I rarely do
but still enjoy.

I feel as though I have been making an abundance of Jewelry.
I still have an abundance of beads!

These are made of tiny glass beads, gemstones and pearls.

DC: Calm

 she closed her eyes
breathed slow and steady
igniting her heart
following her breath
 to the center of her being
tuning into the infinate
she found her calm
that lives within

something about aquas and pale greens
light dancing on water
that brings me to an inner calm

Thank you Veronica
for this timely prompt: calm

Doe a Deer, Announcing DC

doe a deer

Announcing DC for weekend of November 14-15

not to be confused with dear
unless it is a 
dear deer

just one example of how confusing the English language can be!


something new:

please let me know in comment below that you would like 
to post something for 

BUT, the new part:
come to my blog after your post is on your blog
there will be a way for you to link your post through a 
"linky" thing
(i think it will make sense when you see it)

that way people know your post is up and ready to visit
does that make sense?

if not ask me questions

wishing you fun
thinking of deer this week

DC: liminal, Yogini and Beluga Whale

deeply immersed 
in her journey

in the liminal state

 earth woman 
begins her transformation
woman of waters deep

soon to be
a mermaid

'Liminal' is a wonderful theme Veronica, as we 
step back and forth 
between seasons...
thank you!

yesterday we had our first snow of the season:

today, a bit more autumn in the air,
we seem to be in a liminal state:

visit Veronica's this weekend to see how others have 
been inspired
