Random glimpses into the thoughts of a woman- searching for life's answers - or maybe just asking the questions and living them. Trying to live creatively and authentically. Learning to BE - HERE - NOW.
“There once was an Indian brave that was walking down the trail when he discovered an eagles egg had fallen out of itsnest. He looked up and saw that the nest was too high for him to return the egg. So he placed the egg in a nearby prairie chicken nest. When the egg hatched, the little eagle thought he was a prairie chicken. Prairie chickens stay on the ground and eat only worms and grubs. So, as the eagle grew, he ate nothing but worms and grubs and walked around with the other prairie chickens. One day, he looked up in the sky and saw some eagles soaring high above. He asked one of the prairie chickens, "How can they fly up there while we are down here eating worms and grubs?" The prairie chicken answered, "They are the eagles, they can do that but we must stay down here. We are prairie chickens and that is what we do."
So, the eagle spent the rest of his life flying very little and eating worms and grubs just because he was told that was all he could do.”
My brother, Don, realized he could fly 4 years ago today and left us.
I am completely, totally loving Julie's Layer Love Class!!! Julie is warm, encouraging and offers wonderful tips and ideas to create these amazing layer paintings. Below is my painting from her thrid lesson. I haven't had this much fun since I played with finger paints as a child . . . I can't wait to start my next project. We choose our own palette of colors. I've been wandering and looking thru my favorite papers and books and paintings trying to decide what to try.
