A letter to the heart.

Dear Heart:

I give thanks to you today.  Sometimes I neglect you - sometimes I tell you to  quiet
down - I close you to stay safe.  Sometimes I listen to you and keep time with your rhythms.  
Sometimes I forget about you all together - sometimes I forget we are all together.

But you always remind me - you ‘re forgiving and stubborn.  You call me home, you invite me
to myself.  You offer softness and strength.  You remind me that softness is strength.

With gratitude,

As the weather shifts from breezy to brisk, I'm preparing with some mugs to hold a warming cup of comfort this winter.

This design came through me.  I find that the most powerful things emerge, when I am able to get out of the way and open to what is already there.  These wings wanted to be in the world - what a splendid feeling to know that they will find their way to the backs and hearts and hands of strangers and friends.   Find your wings - uncover that is already there.

Old things.  Weathered and frayed.  Patient and fearless of their imminent decay.  I find such a feast of beauty in their textures and shadows.
