As the green carpet comes slowly back sprouting "baby grass green" color, I notice the rustle of wind through bare branches. 

I had a Time Out short visit with a friend, much needed.  In our breathing space, our short vacation, we chatted, smiled, and ate home baked cookies and chocolate.  Dolores handed me a card filled with sun and flowers:

"It's not so much where you're going~ 
but who walks with you on the journey...."

Then we sampled the wrapped chocolates, each with a message.  My favorite was the dark chocolate with almonds.

As we unwrapped the goodies, and read the notes, we were amazed and delighted at the results.

"Stretch your Body~
Stretch your Mind."

"Take a Deep Breath."

"Follow Your Instincts."

Big YES~

And~(drum roll)

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, 
The more there is in life to celebrate."

Ideas Come from Out of the Blue

* We settled into comfortable chairs to hear and view a bit about Angels.  "Do you believe in Angels and How Can They help You to Heal?"  

I sat up eagerly!  Rebecca Rosen, author of Awaken the Spirit Within, told Mehmet Oz, M.D. along with several audience members information about life events, relatives, and mentors.  Other areas of communication also opened up ** across the line. 

Can you communicate with the divine? Rebecca's Guidelines:

Prayer:  Offer positive unselfish intent and invitation to connect

Meditation:  Calming the "party in your head" helps you receive.

Trust and Intuition:  "Get out of your own way."

Trust your non-logical "Gut Feelings"

Then Rebecca spoke about a light bulbs suddenly switching on, "Thoughts or ideas come to you from 'OUT OF THE BLUE!' "

I burst into instant tears~

"What's wrong?" My husband inquired. 

"That's Exactly It"

I stood up and sobbed to the computer.  The screen had timed out.  I restored the current screen image and Out of the Blue Blog appeared showing my Blue Butterfly Logo Painting!  I have never had the Blue Butterfly activated while watching TV-ever.  Silently I pointed to the physical paintings of Blue Butterfly and her companion, Silver Butterfly, resting right here in this room.  

                    I feel awe, wonder, and deep gratitude ~ spontaneous synchronicity.

"The World Beyond What We Can See," Louie Schwartzberg, photographer, filmmaker

My random and sporadic brain takes bits and pieces of scattered information, photographic images, painted experiences, conversations, music, dance, light, color, and other sensory stimuli and juggles them about. Stir the stew and simmer all of these ingredients in a mixture that may take time, even years for a creative moment to flash and download into physical being!  

Bits and Chips of Colored Glass become a Completed Stained Glass Window.

The linking brain connects the dots and fashions a whole new art form, research study, or methods of thought patterns.  The creative Heart-Mind is born again!   I am grateful for these Om My God surprises!  I open my heart to invite wonder and joy.

Everyone has unique pathways in thinking, feeling, and creating.  Maximize the positive paths for you.

Recently as I watched ** Cosmos A Spacetime Odyssey, Neil Degrasse Tyson imagined ancient people "connected the dots" and formed pictures of humans/super-humans, animals, and birds in the night sky.  The sky was dark velvet then, free of light pollution.  What a great adventure!  The art of the constellation was born.

*** I felt the cave again, a haven for art work and ceremony.  The night sky of the time is actually painted in some caves.  Frank Edge, an astronomer, "saw" beyond the animal paintings and figures in Lascaux Cave's Hall of Bulls, noting the "dots" on the art work actually represented star maps at that time. 

I saw in my imagination my favorite constellation, Canis Major (CMA) the great Celestial Wolf.  My first image of him was on a chart many years ago.  There was the Great Wolf, front paw upraised, on a black background.  His star dots were connected by white lines.  Better yet, the artist had outlined in white the Great Wolf shape out around the dots (stars) and lines (structure).  I could easily picture the entire figure.  Eagerly my Dad and I went out, chart and flashlight in hand, and easily found the Great Wolf! 

*** "The stars are so close you think you could just reach up and stir them around...."

When I was young, I liked to connect the dots with pen and paper, then color the images.  My Dad showed me how.

When I was older, I painted the Cheetah!

I "see" a parade of blue butterflies in the flowers....
What Do You "See?"  


* "....All I know since yesterday, is everything has changed...."

"Yes, it has~" I ponder


The phone rings:

"What do we want?" I ask Debra.

**  "We want everything!"
"We want it Yesterday!" 

I chime in, "I want a slower pace, I feel like I am running a robotic race with myself.  I need to carve out more 'creative artistic time' in a quiet space of stillness.  I will work with this."

** "Everything is Yesterday~Everything is Now!"  Debra added. 

 Suddenly a Spring Shower Burst Into Being!
 * "All I know it's pouring rain, and everything has changed...."  The background song plays along, I catch the lyrics.
"Today Will Be Yesterday Tomorrow~ "

"Everything is Yes...."

 I am "hear."

Capture A Creative Moment~
