Awakening Garden

Flowers - It's Spring 560   2017 ©art and photography by Isadora De La Vega

Listen to the buzzing bees
Hear the birds sing
The garden is awakening
Because It’s Spring
It’s Spring.

I ask not for a larger garden
Nor for special seeds
But, for soil to grow
Vivid flowers in Spring
In Spring.

Friday Fictioneers – Muse of You

Humming, ‘Windmills of Your Mind’ ,
Hans Vansbo stood back to view the geometric precision of his latest creation.

Round like a circle in a spiral. Like a wheel within a wheel.
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning wheel …

“Paragon,” he whispered to himself.

“Clearly Hans, this song from your broken relationship has influenced you more then it should.”

“I don’t have time to examine your implications”, retorted Hans.

“But will it sell?”, chimed his dealer. “You need a buyer”.

“It did sell.”

“The curator for the Sven Gallery called. It’s been purchased to be exhibited in their garden.”

Aesthetic- Tree of Life

art-pottery-tree-of-life-oriental-web

I am unique
I can’t make people value me.
All I can do is show them who I am
What I feel,
And what I believe in.
It’s up to them to realize my
Worth
I am unique

To be aesthetic is to have an interest or to be concern;

to have an appreciation of beauty. An art sculpture can give great aesthetic pleasure.aesthetics

A Toast to the #New #Year 2017

isadora-glitterbomb-web

I’m sitting alone listening to the silence

… I ponder that ….

Today is a day like any other day.
Each day, we rise and hope to fill our lives with new and exciting discoveries.
Each one of us has a different vision for what those discoveries are going to be.

I hope 2016 was a good year for you, filled with magnificent life changing events that created wonderful discoveries and memories.
Tonight, midnight bells will echo in the birth of 2017.
A new year to create a better life than the one we had last year.

No need to make resolutions of what 2017 will hold for us. Simply believe that day after day something new and exciting will happen. It may not be what you expect or want or are wishing for, but a day above ground is a blessed one.
This is the puzzle of our existence.

Whatever way you want to look at life, the main thing to remember is that you are not alone. There’s always someone guiding you in whatever form you choose to believe. Take comfort in knowing that the challenges you’re given are because you can endure them; no one gets what they cannot conquer.

Music and dance are ever present in my life. It’s been my savior during the worst and best of times. Perhaps this year, you may want to listen to your life’s music. I know that it’s the only thing I’ll focus on. The rest is out of my hands.

Life’s Music
Learn to listen for the song …
There’s music to everything in the Universe …
It’s in the changing season’s …
In the beat of your heart …
In the cycles of joy and pain …
Don’t resist it.
Follow the humming of your heart.
Flow with it and become part of the rhythm itself
Listen for your own “Life’s” music …

Thank you, my blogging friends and followers, for helping to make my spectacular year of growth.
In Light and Love,
Isadora 😎

Nurture Yourself – Realizing Who You Are

nurutre-yourself-1024a-beige-webAs I come to the end of another year of nurturing, I am aware of how blessed
I’ve been to have traveled this past year with so many who’ve been
walking beside me.

We must never stop writing our own story. It helps us to be present.
It’s a gift we give to our nurturing selves.
All of the painful layers we’ve carefully peeled away this year have helped us
become attuned with our emotional selves.

I’ve looked in the mirror.
I’ve seen myself.
My expectations have far exceeded what I ever thought.
I am pleased. But, there is always room to grow for a better story.

Have you met your expectations this year?
If not, do whatever you have to do to be YOU
~ You want to Be ~
Be in your own story.

In Love and Light ….
Namaste, Isadora

Namaste

I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me.
We are One.
