A list and a page

Things that make me happy and sad {at the same time}

* my chipped coffee cup

* our blind German Shepherd Dog {rescue}

* sunflowers & echinacea {in September}

* my mother’s slow walk

* my aging face

* stacks of books {the ones to give away}

* rainy days

* a good argument

About the Author:

I create containers for words and paint and I fill them. I craft safe, sacred spaces for people to wrestle, create, heal and shout from the mountain tops.
 
And I teach people to do all of these things for themselves.

  • Lovely list. Many real good things in life are the same things that also is most sad/bittersweet. 🙂

    • thank you lady dandelion. Bittersweet is great word for the way I was feeling yesterday.

  • Elizabeth

    Yes to all of them, and I would add: “seeing how much my kids have grown.”

    • Liz – so true. Great addition to the list. {I suspect I’ll keep adding to this one…}

  • I agree, yes to all and I love your dog too. So sweet.

    • Bonnie-friend – Your tender heart is one of the reasons I especially like you.

  • Kath Walls

    Great list; I was given a similar subject by a friend who uses prompts like this when teaching kids to write poetry – what do you like/hate;what frightens/amuses/pleases you; what do you think about in relation to certain colours, and of course what if? why/why not? etc and they can all be used for art prompts

    • Kath –

      Thanks for sharing such great prompts! {I’ve clipped the list into my journal to have at the ready for one of those days when inspiration is low, but I’ve shown up to make a page.}
