Spring Beauty

Rainwashed Crabapple 

Rainwashed Crabapple 

I have been out in Nashville spring, taking photos of the beauty budding and blossoming around me. This is a crabapple in bloom, caught right after a thunderstorm. Perfection.

Healing Beauty

Let beauty
be its own
healing magic.
Do not play small.
Do not stunt your own growth.
Be fruitful.
Fulfill your own destiny.
This is not a race
or a battle.
This is a garden
and each must grow, 
and produce fruit
in its own way
and its own time.
Let beauty
in you.

The human mind and heart are a mystery...
Psalm 64:7

Earth with her thousand voices praises God.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

You have crowned the year with your bounty,
and your paths overflow with plenty.
Psalm 65:10

Anyone who imagines that all fruits ripen at the same time as the strawberries knows nothing about grapes.

The art just wants to be made
It pushes through the vehicle
(the person) into manifest form.
Vicki Noble

Art is the increasing effort to compete with the beauty of flowers—and never succeeding.
Marc Chagall

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

The amen of nature is always a flower.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

    Love your header! My writing coach told me yesterday that you'd been very busy (which I knew you had) and now I see!
