This Moment

"Music of her World" by Deborah C. Kracht

This image is posted above my work table.  Each day its bright colors welcome me into my little nest of a work area.  The words help me remember to use each day, each hour, each minute, each second to nourish my soul and to help all five senses plus my hands bring forth efforts of gentleness and beauty.

Sometime I actually manage to heed these words as my both my mind and hands keep busy.  Other days I'm not quite so able.  On those days my mind whirls around like a hamster on a wheel in a cage -- all sorts of random thoughts that usually have no significance whatsoever.  On those days my hands move - but not in any direction, doing this and that and that and this.

So here's to more days where I can be 'in the moment' and let the 'music fill my soul' and I wish the same thing for each of you.  After all we're all in this moment together!

"Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it". - Dee Hock


  1. Hi Penny
    Gosh the colors are great! Kind of invigorating. Fun to look at anyway, even on a day that's hard to focus on art work.

  2. Penny, I love the quote from Dee Hock. So that I have it handy, I copied it into my journal. Thank you for the inspiration. Have a creative day.

  3. Yes all in this moment together! Gilly

  4. Hi everyone - I'm in this moment typing from a hotel room in Charleston. We are over here for a couple of days. Thanks for stopping by -- and hope each of you are having a beautfully creative day (hour, minute) right now! - Penny

  5. I love your sentiment and painting. Being in the moment is a struggle for most of us, I think, but I've also been trying to stay aware of it. The Buddha is quoted many times about this, here's just one: “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
    PS: Will catch up with our email soon!

  6. I love it! This is something I try hard to remember yet have to constantly be reminded.
