We all live in a spiral galaxy like this one, which happens to be the Andromeda Galaxy. Now picture one very tiny planet way on the right edge. Thats where Earth is, our home in the cosmos. Sunday is Earth Day. I hope you will make an offering of something you love to our Mother Earth, to thank her for our lives of which she sustains everyday. And sometimes when life gets too hard, too hectic, remember your part of something incredible, much bigger than you.
For my friend @grannydot16 in Scotland. Here's the pics I promised you of Asante Medical Center in Medford, Oregon. First photo is one of the roads that lead off to other buildings and complexes within this huge campus. Second is not a great photo but the light was strange at this point. This is the beautiful waterfall meditation area that is just below the front entrance of the hospital. Above this are all kinds of beautiful benches where you can listen to the calming water. The third was the view coming home after hitting N. California. The cafeteria was serving breakfast and we had yummy sausage, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs with cheese. I had a nice hot cup of very good English tea in honor of you and for my own love of it as well. Lots of hugs to you and Malc.
"I don't know you, but I know you well. You came to me, upon the wings of the universe, riding high and in high style. I glimpsed you these days, gazing at me through the windows of my mind, and I caught hold, as you transported me to wild and wonderful places. The world became our magic, and we played in it's mischieviousness. As we travel the roads less taken, or perhaps never taken before, our joy becomes unbounded through all time and space. All of us, each of us, weave our own patterns in the fabric of existence. To find that thread that leads to friendship and bottles of joy, is a gift of words and a gift beyond words. Sometimes, it's something only the heart can feel. And sometimes it was in your words all along."
IN YOUR WORDS

This beautiful pouch by @gloriafreshley arrived via mail today and I love it. This is the first handmade item I've gifted myself in way over a year and it was so worth it. She has a much better photo on her IG account and it shows the long adjustable cross body strap that is on it. She recycles amazing materials and adds her own prints, specialized stitching and other techniques to create runners, scarves and other works of art. It also felt good to support another artist and I know many of you support your local community artists as well. Take a look at her beautiful work, I am sure it will inspire you as well. The shadows are from the sun streaming in to give me enough light for the camera to take the photo.
