Taking Flight

I CAN FLY...
I CAN LOVE...
I CAN BREATHE...
I CAN LISTEN...
I CAN HEAR...
I CAN SOAR...
I AM ALIVE!

I am aware today that I must do all of these things in order to JUST BE ME! This is a new mantra for 2008..I just must BE to truly honor my hearts' song so that I CAN SING! Today, I am aware of the wind....
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

PS:
What are you aware of today that allows you to ... JUST BE?

Your work is very beautiful. Very colorful and inspiring. As to your last question listening to music with an embroidery needle in my hand just allows me to be.

This is so stunning. The image is perfect and works so well with the mantra.

Today I'm concentrating only on breathing. I need to tell myself to stop and breathe. Thanks for reminding me.

I love your art. Where do you get your inspiration? I'm new at this stuff so bare with me. There is so much talent out there, I feel so small and insignificant. But your work is inspiring me to get busy on my own.
