Repost from @caroline.myss , and wow. Am grateful to discover the work, wisdom, and grace of this extraordinary teacher.
My prayer is for the grace to heal: as a son, a daughter, a mother, a father, a husband, a wife, a family, a people, a nation, a world.
Thanks to @mohonkmountainhouse for this silent, waving tribute to honor and grace.
This is a little vignette from “Bee-fore,” which is to say the house before #beecottage, which some of you know about. This collection of blue and white plates keeps turning up, which is a nice thing about collections—they can keep turning up in different rooms and different ways. These were in the master bedroom, a weird-ish place for plates but it worked. Like last week’s paintings (ha, some also hung with plate hangers!) these too are arranged #higgeldypiggeldy above a painted chest. The same plates appear in more orderly fashion a few posts back in a plate rack in the kitchen of Bee Cottage. All to say that whether you move or not, it’s fun to re-think your collections and to come up with different ways to display them. I’d love to see yours if anyone wants to share… .

Sailing into a new week. I love how the light catches these sails and creates a kind of halo around the mother and child. Assuming they are mother and child. Could be crazy aunt (like me) and niece. Anyway there’s a painting in here somewhere…

Sailing out of summer. So good to be on the water… Finally dawned on me I could… even if His Grace would rather go to the dentist than be on the ocean. Not that I needed permission, I just forget sometimes that things I love doing are right at my fingertips but for the deciding to do them. Often it’s not a question of permission from others, but permission from ourselves. Anyone out there relate to that?
The slough at Goleta Beach in Santa Barbara. Tried to paint it today. Failed. Will try again.
Ugly packaging disguised. Is anyone else obsessed with this, too?! Even in this “utility bathroom” at our ranch, I still want it to be pretty. So, with a little craft paper and raffia, boom. It ain’t Jo Malone, but it’s okay. In the words Rodgers & Hammerstein, #brownpaperpacksgestiedupwithstring … Okay now i feel guilty for not putting Jo Malone in there…
Don’t you love an art wall? Me too. The more mixed up the better. And yet the mix must be harmonious and balanced. You know it when you see it. The stately and ordered are beautiful, of course, but the higgeldy-piggeldy and personal are such fun–like giant bulletin boards of […]
A pretty bedside table is a nice thing to go to sleep by and wake up to, that and my handsome caballero riding in the Santa Barbara Fiesta parade a few years back. These were the last of my beautiful #distantdrum roses from @gracerosefarm with an okd #staffordshire dog peeking out from behind. .
