I Am Enough

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

Art and the Soul

Hi friends,

I just finished taking pictures of the pretties I bought at the Summer Arts Festival and thought you might like to see:

I could not leave this platter there. The colors remind me of peacock colors.

This pendant is solid glass and made in the Mellifiori tradition.

This piece soooo speaks to me: On one level it reminds me of a really cool, avant gard petunia. If I look again, it reminds me of one of those lightning balls with the static electricity, and the third thing it reminds me of is an MRI image.


  1. Looks like you got some pretty things. I love the platter. It certainly does remind me of peacock colors too.


  2. Thanks; there were soooooo many beautiful things but I limited myself to $100 and stuck to it.
