my favorite quote...
If neither affection nor love can be...
Then let the more affectionate one be me...

Today was one of those days...
You know the one..
Not quite sure about where the direction would take you, into blissfulness or mundanes s.
All I knew was that it was taking me and all would be well- in some form.
I visited my Gran Mother, Grand Father and Gran Uncle's grave and the stillness and beauty that became apparent to me gave me perspective in all aspects of my life. It is a very strange place- a graveyard on your lonesome.. but an experience one should share with oneself. It brings you back to the wholesome roots of your very existence. No worries, no fears... Just you and your connections to your past.
I did not ask of anything... I did not ask for answers... I just wanted to be by their side and feel their warmth and love. That is what I received.
For signs.. I received my uncles driving their tractors along the country road where they were born and raises... Simplicity...
For guidance... I looked to the skies to direct me back to my heart... Home...
For answers... I believed that all is pure and wonderful in my world and each moment is what I make it and believe that I have the power to transform my life into any sphere I choose it to be.

Beautifully... Mia's Doodles...

My favourite place to sit...

Delving into the unknown...

My first post..hummm... This mad interactive world will be a fun way for me to cite my views and hopfully gain insights from others and maybe even allow my art world to flourish! Painting has always been my protective armour... Always there when I need to protect myself from the hounds that surround me. Sometimes it works...sometime not... But the journey inwards into creation is always one path to choose. It may massage those wounds..it may change a perspective..it may only give relief to a bad moment... But its there and its there for a reason. Sometimes I wonder if creativity was never actually created and all humans just lived in a world where the defination to create did not exist... How could we survive!
Luckly, those silly thoughts are not real and creativity is one of...if not theee most important aspect to me.. myself. As a mother, a teacher and a lover.. all these aspect to me are bound into what creation is.
Believe, love...create
...Doodles for now....
