Friday’s Quote

‘An Awakening Woman is a spiritual rebellion
engaged in a glowing and embodied,
nothing held back, love affair
with a great mystery.
She moves in the world with
fierce compassion, grace and freedom,
and is passionate about truth, rest and real love…
Earth is home and so is infinity.’ 
Chameli Ardagh

Friday’s Quote

Steep
and begin a journey that spans continents and centuries on speed-of-sound steam trains. 
Sip 
the sun, rain and fog of the morning these delicate botanicals were picked. 
Explore
lemongrass lawns, carpets of chamomile and the living history of your ancestors. 
Taste with all your senses, but most of all with your imagination. 
Each cup is a story, unfolding with every sip.” Tazo Tea

‘Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.’ – Linda Hogan, Native American Writer

Friday’s Quote

‘A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between her work and her play, her labour and her leisure, her mind and her body, her education and her recreation. She hardly knows which is which. She simply pursues her vision of excellence through whatever she is doing and leaves others to determine whether she is working or playing. To herself she always seems to be doing both. Enough for her that she does it well.’ – Zen Buddhist Master 

Friday’s Quote

Sunflowers in October? Yes, please. During my morning errands I came across two fields of these late bloomers. Or at least what I believe to be late bloomers. But, really, who am I to say they’re late? They’re here and just perfect in my eyes. 
They were growing next to a pumpkin patch, so naturally I could barely contain my excitement. The lady working the farm stand came over to see if I was okay. She walked away clearly puzzled by my zealous picture taking.  

You see, there’s this quote I’ve been planning to share with you today and yet I was just about convinced, given the time of year, I wasn’t going to find just the right photo of a blooming flower. And yet, the universe provided exactly what I was looking for in the middle of what I perceived to be a mundane morning. 

‘And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was greater than the risk to bloom.’ – Anais Nin 

Friday’s Quote

You know when you learn a new word and then all of sudden you hear it everywhere? Well, that’s how it’s been for me when it comes to the works of Tasha Tudor. I’ve fallen in love with the idea of how she lived her life, her perspectives and her work. It is all so captivating to me and to discover a quote from a woman who had the pleasure of meeting her, was almost like meeting her myself.   
‘Tasha Tudor may be simply one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. A world renowned illustrator and author, Tasha is not only an artist, but lives her life as a work of art. She has created around her a world that is uniquely her own, and its so filled with magic and delight that it enchants all who have had the great good fortune to be invited into it.’ – Rosemary Gladstar 
As I nest this fall, this quote lingers in my mind, reminding me to create a world, uniquely my own.
