A favorite painting
I LOVE this painting!
the image speaks with such clarity, inspiration and depth
by Cathy McClelland, an artist from the Lake Tahoe area…
a perfect image for this time of year
perhaps, whispering a gentle suggestion to us….
respect the wisdom of the seasons…
the wisdoms of ancient cultures,
the wisdom of nature,
follow their rhythms
~ winter ~
enter the quiet,
go gently within,
deeply into the quiet

Living aligned with the cycles of the seasons,
the wisdom of nature,
entering the deep “wisdom dreams” of winter,
leading to the new life energies of spring and summer

respecting the wisdom of this season,
going quietly within

I have a dancing bear banner watching over my kitchen. We’ll have to meet there sometime 🙂 I just comment to Joss that rainbows from a heart crystal danced around my kitchen while making persimmon bars yesterday. The treat is for xmas gift bags.
Ooooohhhh… a dancing bear?…special…. And rainbows as you’re cooking persimmon bears…yummmm…just as special! I’ve been watching 3 crystal produced rainbows on special statues and books in the back bedroom…fascinated to watch where the rainbow lights “land” and then move on to…intriguing. Ahhh, some of the quiet and simple pleasures of winter.
Quiet pleasures of winter indeed! Just went out to watch the sun set and moon rise. Everything was sort of persimmon colored!
Gotta comment on “cooking persimmon bears” typo or intentional it sure made me laugh! 😀 Happy Saturday!
Funny…persimmon bears… definitely a typo, but funny…hmmm…better than persimmon beer. What a beautiful sunset it must have been… more persimmon! 😀
We just watched the movie, on netflix…. “I Am”…very good documentary…perfect timing for resonating with those perspectives, thoughts and ideas.
And speaking of the “sky”…have you seen these photos?..the last photo on the linked page has a tiny blue dot below Saturn’s rings…that’s Earth!..that teeny, tiny little dot!…that’s our little planet…isn’t that amazing????
I was just talking to someone about this. Our culture is a bit out of sinc..though I love that I’m finding those who are finding the way back. Thanks. These are wonderful.
I’m just learning about letting in the quiet…especially this time of year. Speaking of going quiet and going deep…here’s what has been happening as I’ve been doing that…did I link you to this already? …it’s been changing, day by day…along with the quiet…… (it’s not a “regular” post….so it’s not in the email or reader notifications… it’s up in headline area…. ) https://pocketperspectives.wordpress.com/plant-flowers/calling-all-angels/

Aren’t they such wonderful paintings! The artist is remarkable! Happy to share… 😀
