osa

Osa is a commissioned painting. This puppy is very special to her people and I fell in love with her when I saw her photos. Osa means ‘one who is closer to God…the Goddess’. Seems to me in painting her that there is much depth to her. So I was moved to paint her beautiful soul which seemed to overshadow her dogginess. Well…her people clearly adore her. Fortunate four legged.

I have been suffering a severe lack of dog friends so I am dog sitting ‘Maggie’ for my daughter when she works. Everyone gets what they want. I give ‘Maggie’ a fresh bone every day. Spoiled? I’m guilty, but I can’t help myself.

Blood to bone, bone to marrow

Marrow to ashes, ashes to snow’

twilight

She lost herself in the trees

among the ever-changing leaves.

She wept beneath the wild sky

as stars told stories of ancient times.

The flowers grew towards her light,

the river called her name at night.

She could not love an ordinary life

with the mysteries of the universe

hidden in her eyes.

When the soft winds blow

I can hear the trees whispering.

Their leaves rustling

as they share their thoughts

with the universe.

They talk about the sun, the sky,

the people that roam the earth.

They say we are all one.

You can choose what to focus on, and therefore what to be. You can choose to be your in-breath and out-breath. You can choose to listen with your whole being to the sound of the rain or the wind, and in some way to be one with the rain or the wind. Listening to sounds in this way can be very joyful. When you are in touch with these refreshing and healing elements, you are being, and not thinking.

Wakan Tanka,

Great Mystery

 

Teach me how to trust my heart,

my mind,

my intuition,

my inner knowing,

the senses of my body

the blessings of my spirit.

 

Teach me to trust these things

so that I may enter my Sacred Space

and Love beyond my fear

and thus Walk in Balance

with the passing of each glorious Sun.

We are Earth people on

a spiritual journey to

the stars. Our quest,

our Earth walk, is to

look within, to know

who we are, to see

that we are connected

to all things, that

there is no separation,

only in the mind.

……..Lakota seer

 

I have been fascinated by the Cheeta ever since I saw the film “Ashes in the Snow.” I periodically rewatch this film on YouTube because its beauty is mesmerizing. It takes you to another dimension…..the place that you are always seeking. A place of no separation. Gregory Colbert is the artist. Animals and humans interact in his art piece. No separation. If you are interested, urls are below….They seem to work????

May we raise children

who love the unloved

things – the dandelion, the

worms and spiderlings.

Children who sense

the rose needs the thorn

and run into rainswept days

the same way they

turn towards sun…

And when they’re grown and

someone has to speak for those

who have no voice

may they draw upon that

wilder bond, those days of

tending tender things

and be the ones.

We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things … but there are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper……… James Carroll
