Bright blessings for the New Year!

This is my entry for the Take A Word challenge this week using "Turquoise and Purple".  A digital collage made to have a "pastel" feeling to it with the swirls and hues of the Aurora Borealis or Northern lights. Goddess of the North and keeper of the mysterious lights.  Imagery from Dover, and Pink Lotty at Deviant Scrap.

Winter Solstice

As we come to the Winter Solstice and the shortest day of the year we are reminded that the wheel is now turning again and the light will return to us slowly and methodically.  I love how nature never rushes. It is pure and absolute. If only we could learn to pace ourselves as nature does.
Take the time to engage winter in her harshness and her beauty.Use this time to go inward and be present, alive and awake, noting the changes but never urging them on.

This piece is the December page for my "Book of Days".  Imagery from Stampington, Rucola Designs, Finecrafted Designs with artistic filters added in PSE.

"Ti's the Season".... is the theme for this  upcoming week's Take A word challenge. And challenge it was. As we are all so busy in preparing for this season of wonder  and quiet reflection; this joyous time of family and especially for children that the horrors of Friday's school shooting in Connecticut leave us all numb and broken.

It was very difficult  (as is this writing) to not allow the negative energy to influence  a creative expression. It stops you in your tracks and makes you feel  trivial and small.

This season for me (is) all about children.  Their innocence, their belief in the wondrous and magical aspects of life, their ability to view the world as we adults have lost to some degree and each year at the Holidays we connect to that child in ourselves and we forget being adults for a while.

It is important that we all try to not let this horrific incident create more horror and try to carry on through loving, caring and sharing this holiday season as we always have.  Believe in all of the good that is out there; give power to the positive not the negative and spread the wonder that this season can bring.

The best to you all...
