Lost at Sea

I’m keeping my words to a minimum (or trying to!) so that I (and you) can enjoy the peace and quiet of visual ideas. I’ve noticed that when I look for inspiration, I’m always drawn to the female body. I love that fact because, for one, I’m going to put together a vision board to help me stay excited about my goals—one of them being to get fit and stay fit. I dropped the ball on the “New lifestyle, New me” series that I had going on, but that doesn’t mean that I should give up. I think that one of the wisest things you can do as you age is continue to work on your whole self… mind, body and soul. I’ll be 60 in 2 months, so there is no time like the present to take care of me.

Anyway, I was inspired by a watercolor that I saw and thought, “Hmmm… what a fun way to celebrate summer – with illustrations of women on the beach!” So this is the first of what I hope will be many during these warm months. We’ll see…

I hope you enjoy the image, and that you find a little tranquility in it.

If you get tired, learn to rest, not quit.


Have a beautiful day or evening… wherever you may be!

Colorful Leaves

In the Quiet

In the Quiet,
I’m unheard, I’m unseen,
I can run, I can twirl,
If I want… I can scream.
Just me and my thoughts,
Far away from the crowd,
Dancing in color,
And singing out loud.

I wanted to whiz past “Q” tonight. I LOVE Quiet. I don’t think quiet is all about lack of noise either. It’s also about peace & tranquility—like quieting your mind. Quiet, for me, is also about solitude. It’s about delighting in your alone time, and enjoying your own company. If you can’t entertain yourself how can you possibly entertain others?!

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just old age. 😉 There was a time when the quiet made me uneasy. I couldn’t relax unless I was in the middle of the action. Things have certainly changed!

Anyway, that’s about all for now. Thank you for reading! I’ll see you around soon for the letter “R.” Only nine letters left in the row…

Now back to the quiet I go.
