august 6 (and a retreat reflection)

If I can only do one thing right now, what would that be?


That's my reflection and summation for this week.

Enough said ... back to my retreat ...

stage one of my painting for BIG: "How does it feel to be me?"

my goddess & i are resting ... waiting to see what happens next.

Oh, I did take a break to drive downtown to watch the Tibetan Monks of Gaden Shartse Monastery working on a colored sand mandala dedicated to Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

Cowgirl enjoyed trying out the techniques herself.

Okay, seriously, all that color has me itching to paint (and to spurge on some new colors!)

What one thing do you want to do right now? Why aren't you doing it?


  1. Lis, LOVE the photo of you 2 goddesses hanging out together..... The sand mandala's are gorgeous huh? Such patience needed. Your daughter looks so comfortable creating hers. Lots of <3. Sandy

  2. Oh my goodness, I love your BIG painting! What a goddess you created! That photo is fabulous. I've been taking lots of shots today for August break--ice cream was my theme! Have a great weekend! XOXO
