"See" and "feel" the beauty and magic of who you really are through
the meditative practice of a centuries-old art form.
A Mandala is like a badge of the soul.

Love Deck

Feeding squirrels on my deck
their nuts look like pieces of love
my offering to the universe
will it circle back to me with their freedom?

Seeds of Prayer

Be among those who cherish truth above ease, and whose prayers are shafts of light in the darkness that, otherwise, would envelop us. Be the same within and without. Aspire to be loving, compassionate, humane and hopeful. Become the prayer for goodness your lips have uttered. Become exemplar of the Highest and serve all that is good within you.
(From Jewish prayer book).

"The whole world is captive to the beauty
that comes from the soul." -- Tehilla Lichtenstein

This piece of artwork was done to honor a very special soul.

Voyage of the Lonely Sea Turtle

Click on link below to see information on PBS Documentary

This documentary tells the story of a (female) Loggerhead Sea Turtle on a 9,000 mile passage across the Pacific Ocean, from the west coast of Mexico to Japan. The Pacific Ocean is 1/3 the size of the whole planet. The Sea Turtle travels the massive 1 million square miles of ocean, at a very slow pace, with the constant threat of predators. It takes her 370 days and 9,100 miles to get to her destination to the beach where she was hatched 30 years ago. She is compelled to return to this Island in Japan to lay her eggs -- like her mother, grandmother and great grandmother did before her. Instinct guided her as well as something called magnetic mapping.

The Loggerhead Sea Turtle’s journey is incredible!
