Sharing Sweetgrass and Stones – Friendship & Books

Some of the deepest sharing of souls takes place when a very special book group gets together. We call it the Crystal Book Group, named for a location but also for the clarity and power of our sharing. Our sharing includes an art activity that deepens what we have read. We recently created sweetgrass braids and painted stones.

Monarchs, Milkweed & Mandalas

There are many song nature sings that we cannot hear. Each plant, insect, animal and all of creation has its own vibrations.
Monarchs butterflies have their own song. I can’t hear the songs monarchs sing to the plant that it is married to, milkweed.

Sarah Is In The Garden Now

My dog Sarah was a super dog. I say my dog because even though she was supposed to be the family dog, she was mine. She was the sweetest dog and even had fans who used to go out of their way to walk by our house to pet her as she sat on the front lawn.

Fairies & Family – Part Two

My Aunt Lonna’s* fairy houses are some of the most creative sculptures I have ever seen.  The sweetness is seen in each detail of these creations made from nature’s materials.  I know the fairies were guiding my Aunt to find the perfect mushroom, acorn, branch, roots, moss and other fairy delights to use in her […]

This feminine power sustains me. Although my mother is gone, her presence comforts […]

Flowers for Alesondra

Nature’s Abstract Inspirations in Stone

A recent visit to my son and future daughter-in-law’s new home in California included a trip to Bean Hollow Beach. Bean Hollow Beach is a California State Beach on the Pacific, south of Pescadero. It is known for its unusual rock formations called Tafoni.

Twelve Days of Christmas

Happy Holidays. The artist is Hawley Wright.  The postcards are from the greeting card company I created called Wild Rice Cards, based in Minneapolis in the 1980s.  The twelve days of Christmas start on Christmas Day or Boxing Day, depending. Whatever your celebration this time of year, have a wonderful holiday.  

Ginger Bear Cookies

Each holiday season I make these cookies from a recipe I created that was part of a greeting card illustrated by my friend Hawley Wright.
