Look what arrived at our house yesterday - all the way from Australia:
I won Val's giveaway on her blog Vania's Art a couple of weeks ago and felt so lucky! And even luckier yesterday, when I unwrapped this gorgeous painting and hung her in my studio! Such a beauty and such inspiration!! (And it's the first piece of mail I ever received from Australia.) Thank you so much, Val!
Now for my confession (and I don't know why this feels like a confession, but it does - maybe it's my age...). The last couple of weeks, I've been reading, no devouring, the Twilight series. I've been steeped in vampires, humans, shape shifters, teenage love and angst, reading every night until the wee hours of the morning. I so enjoyed these books, not just because they were so entirely engrossing, but I love stories about good and evil, light and dark where my preconceived notions are constantly questioned and redefined, where there are many gray areas and different ways of looking at things. It's a lot how life is to me - a lot of gray areas.
And now that I am done with all four books, I wonder what am I going to read next! Any suggestions for good summer reads? (Not that I don't have stacks of books next to my bed already that I haven't read yet, but one can never have too many books, right?)
In other news, here a photo of of some of our organic produce that came to us today via our sweet neighbor who organizes a sort of coop for several families. When I see all that wonderful food, I can feel the full abundance of life!
Here's to great abundance in all our lives!!
