Google+ What I Made Today: Playful Gratitude for those Clowns we call Drama

Playful Gratitude for those Clowns we call Drama

It has been a strange and wonderful week in my little realm. A week filled to overflow with drama of the welcomed and less-than-welcomed variety. The skies have offered dramatic views; with passing storms, sunrises and sunsets that inspire gasps and sighs. And then some. These are moments of drama that I welcome, savor... and invite. Yet other silly and less welcomed moments offered me distinct reminders of life lessons and Wisdom born of experience. I embrace them all. The extremes and the subtle moments, too. And offer gratitude. For all of them.

So today I place a few finishing touches on this week's heART journal spread and I share it with you and my creative friends at Paint Party Friday (who I've missed, by the way).

With that I offer you this: Get out there. Do something. Anything. Go. Now. Do.

Peace.

I agree with the sentiment, fear of a F*&^ Up sometimes can hold you back...but I try to go for it anyway!

Yes, the circus has arrived. I welcome a time away to refresh and renew and digest all of life's lessons. Love the artwork the drama inspired.

Your clowns are so cute they are kind of happy and sad at the same time. Happy PPF

Great journal page. I loved your words. Go.do, etc. right now I need that because I'm honestly doing nil. On a bummer right now. Can you suggest a tea that might help?

I like the way you have placed the strange and wonderful clowns on the "ordinary" grass. You are right, do something, anything, is good advice.
