I dreamt of a giant, hulking bear. I should have been afraid of her dark shape looming over me, but instead, I felt nothing but peace and awe. We sat together, her at my back, and marveled at the vastness of the sky, communicating without words. Her breath was warm on my back as she revealed how endless the skies used to feel, and that the trees would sing to it as their leaves budded, opened, then turned autumnal colors and dropped to the ground. It was a never ending orchestra, punctuated with the smell of fresh cut grass. And worms, even though it wasn't raining. We were sitting in a park like space together, and people passed by or stopped to talk to me, but no one acknowledged or seemed to see her. I delighted in her choosing to commune with me. It was a treasured exchange. But upon wakening, I wondered if it was really her choice. Maybe I was simply receptive to her energy, and she would have revealed herself to anyone who was also paying attention to that. 

Which made me sad then - how much beauty do we miss in the world because we don't slow down to actually see our surroundings?

Thanks, as always, for following along on my painting journey,

Be well,
Fondly, Kim

I need to learn more about the Inuit community and their ties to these bears - someone told me that it's rather mystical. I'd like to understand it better myself - and perhaps that will make me a better painter, too, of these delightfully engaging animals. Also, Friday (only two more wakeups!!), at 10am eastern, I will be doing a live painting demo in   my online classroom . I will have multiple cameras set up (both my easel and palette/work surface), giving each student a front row seat from the comfort of their own home, as I share - with real time q&a - how I respond to my world and turn

Brave means, in every uncertain moment, turning inward, feeling for the Knowing, and speaking it out loud. If you are uncomfortable—in deep pain, angry, yearning, confused—you don't have a problem, you have a life." Glennon Doyle Has anyone else been reading - and re-reading - their copy of   Untamed ? (and if you haven't read it yet, who's keeping you from doing so?!) Glennon talks about women as cheetahs regularly, and it's a visual I lean on when I'm feeling a little wobbly. I am a cheetah. Cheetahs don't wobble, they look things directly in the eye.  So when c

It was a fabulous chance for us to learn about all the little details of this new property and get to know the couple who had lived here. While My Better Half was off learning about the sprinkler systems and the furnace, I got a tour of the property, the plantings and an introduction to the "neighbors." There's the 7 deer who bed down in the tree circle, Lucy the possum who does the walk of shame each morning when she returns home after a wild night on the town, James the groundhog, who has both a summer home and a winter den.
