is being with
and sharing

Dear Sweet,

When I'm in a creative space, I flourish when surrounded by others who sing their own songs and move to the rhythms of their own beautiful heartbeats.  In this creative space, we are all joyfully at play.  Some share their work; some don't.  There are no expectations or rules.  Freedom reigns in a space of nonjudgment.  Each day we show up in our private space and just play and share and BE in the joyfulness of creating.

As we play and share, we eventually release the farkles that create noises, and which get in the way of the magical union between our brushes and our juicy colors.  

In this nurturing environment, Courage shows up and asks Fear to leave.  High-five, Bravo and Me-Too join the party. 

Confidence and Acceptance are late-comers, but that's okay because they bring chocolate desserts for all.

Finally, we are all singing the same song, just in different colors.  It sounds beautiful.

Thanks, Dreama for inviting me to your party.  The room was beautifully decorated, the videos are awesome, the DJ was the BEST!  I love BEing a DreamLovePainter.

Next art date is at my place . . . Please gently remind Confidence and Acceptance to arrive early because, I mean, you know, Chocolate enhances our play time.  By the way, wouldn't it be nice to hear Confidence and Acceptance sing with Magic?  Can you imagine what the three of them will create?  OMG!!!

Love and Hugszzz!
