"This morning while having coffee by the fireplace (yes, a fireplace in Naples, Florida), I was actually enjoying viewing this painting. It's framed in a large ornate frame and I just recently hung it on the family room wall. When I painted "Roses & Melon" in 2005 I knew it wasn't good enough to market but saved it anyway. It amazes me how we appreciate something on any one day and then another day brings different things or ideas that we appreciate. When I use the word "appreciate", I mean it as "to go up in value" . . . . like we want our stocks and bonds to do, right!
The book that I'm reading now "The Presence Process" is coming to a close but I'm sure to be reading it again and again. Here is a sentence that I high-lighted this morning: We discover the capacity of Presence - a Presence we all share, everywhere , in each moment, that's able to bring us exactly what's required, whenever it's required. " I discovered this many years ago and am still experiencing this same miracle that is meant for us all today too."
