More Snow Day Journaling

This is a collage and some writing inspired by a lot of soulful reading.


...and it's being posted on my ipad instead of the usual PC, so my apologies if it is off center.  I haven't mastered as much technology as I should have perhaps.

Peace and love to you,

An Unexpected Snow Day!


A surprise morning off brings out
the art journal
the creative juices
the loong coffee breaks
and the joy of a grateful heart.




I doodled roses with a fine point black Sharpie pen
and had so much fun playing with watercolors.

What a wonderful gift today is!

Opening My Heart


Sometimes I get stuck.
Do you?


My sensitive nature can't get past a hurt,
even though I have forgiven...


...and I seek to release it.

Making space for the light, the peace,
and opening up,
to lessen my anxiety.

Journaling helps!

Love,
~k

The Winds of This November


 Autumn is really pretty today.
The leaves have fallen  in colorful piles,
but just enough remain on the branches
to play games with the bluest of skies.

Today.
 

 I am trying to balance the 50-hour work week of an elementary teacher
with the loving time of family.
I babysat my 9 month old granddaughter, Andi,
overnight and got in lots and lots of cuddle
snuggly time.



I am truly amazed at the power of love
and yet, I'm not surprised at all.

An autumn evening


 ...with my journal, finally.


The trees here are gorgeous
and the leaves have been
swirling the wind.

Me, too.

Sunday...in my journal


Hello, friends.


This written page is a collection of thoughts
that have been swirling in my brain this past week.
Two of my students had devastating
crises in their little lives, and we are all
holding one another up.

It takes a village.


Smile.  Love one another.
Peace,
~k

In My Journal...


So many thoughts have been in my head again lately,
it felt good to write them out and
release.

Reignites my love of words and paper.

Have a great new week, friends.
