Heart stories . . .

buddah-feetMy heart is telling me stories today. I am listening closely.

I sit in a nice patch of sun on my porch wrapped in a woolly blanket as I write this. I have a warm cup of tea beside me and a kitty companion under the chair close by. I hear the chirping of the birds in the trees. There is a sweet woodpecker that’s been hanging out nearby lately. I am pretty sure he lives in our pear tree.

porch-incenseI think it’s good to be here; getting in my last days of porch sitting before the  season is over. Autumn will change to winter and it will be too cold, even with a blanket and a sweater, to sit here and contemplate, plan, dream and gather creative inspiration. Soon, the porch will be covered in the sparkly magic of freshly fallen snow and I am not all together sure I am quite ready for that.

But right now there is this. I don’t want my mind to wander off into what soon will be. I want to stay in the here and now and appreciate all that is right in this very moment. Autumn’s soft shadows created by the flowerbeds, Black-Eyed Susans waving their goodbyes as they slowly shrivel and drop their petals, the songs of the crickets, cicadas and bees singing their last songs to us all. ‘Til we meet again next spring my friends.

tiny-flowersI sit here and I am carefully crafting what is to come next. Listening to what must be heard from my heart. I am asking my heart what’s next? What do I need to do? {We have deep frank conversations, my heart and I, doesn’t everyone?} My heart leads me to where I need to be.

Today, my heart is telling me that some exciting new projects and collaborations are on the horizon, more friends, more new love notes for the online shop, more growing, more pictures, more paint, more heart opening…

…I am listening.

Tell me what is it that your heart is telling you today? If you would like to share with me here, I would love to listen.
