nARTure …

As promised, here are a few more photos from my hike with the loud mouth frogs. Went hiking on Saturday to a different location and heard more frogs singing in the distance. Made me smile like a crazy person again :)

So the bottom right photo above is what I’ve designated as my natural meditation chair. I’ve hiked here twice so far and both times I’ve planted my booty on that rock and leaned against the tree, closed my eyes and soaked up the sounds of nature. Crinkling leaves, birds chirping, branches cracking, my breath inhaling and exhaling, planes flying (yeah, so that one wasn’t ideal, but I do like living near civilization, so it’s bound to creep up on me while meditating in the woods ;) ). I bet some dog has pee’d on that rock …


beauty. peace. LOVE. 

This is what BEAUTY looks and feels like.

 This is what PEACE looks and feels like.

This is what LOVE looks and feels like.


Pure. Natural. Honest. Safe. Vulnerable. Real as shit.

newspaper art 02

You can draw and create on anything … even the Catholic Times ;)

No one gets newspapers anymore, but this one shows up on my mom’s driveway every so often. In case you’re curious, I am not a crazy Catholic … if I was, I would probably feel guilty defacing their newspaper. But, hey, I did make it look pretty cool. Plus, the word ‘pornography’ takes it up another notch.

The moral of this story: Try looking at things around you from a different viewpoint. They don’t all have to have one purpose/meaning, unless you let them.
