I spent a lovely morning puttering about a finally empty house. I have reclaimed the dining room table for its true purpose: my painting table! Pausing to let a layer of paint dry, I had a phone chat with a sweet friend who was also pausing in her busy day. She mentioned embarking upon a weekly practice set in place by Amanda Blake-Soule or SouleMama (or Taproot Magazine mama!) which is to post a single photo on Friday that captures the essence of her week. She calls it this moment.
Having completed a 365 photo-a-day for 2012, I am easing up on the old camera but I love the idea of having a weekly practice. So here I am. Week one.
I love the idea of this being a transformation of my weekly reflection into something simple, easy and do-able.
|Stage one of a painting inspired by Katherine Dunn's Capturing the Essence course. The lesson is to tell the story of a dear friend at her moment of passing over; here is my beloved Frida cat as her spirit soared out of her 18 year old body. After much struggle, there was a tangible sense of her spirit springing out of her and I want to capture her flying to the stars.|

Thus possibilities take root! Thank you Maya for introducing me to so much goodness! (Off to find a cardigan pattern to knit for Cowgirl who has requested a new sweater! And like any knitting mama, I cannot resist such a request!)
