Bless Those Who Challenge Us

Bless those who challenge us to grow,
to stretch, to move beyond the knowable,
to come back home to our elemental 
and essential nature.

Bless those who challenge us
for they remind us of doors we have closed
and doors we have yet to open.
                  - Navajo Saying

May those I have resented be truly happy.

May they live in peace.
May they live in love.
May they know the power of forgiveness.
May they live in recognition that their life
has deep meaning and good purpose.

- Loving Kindness Practice

oh how I love this
...and those colors dazzle
my eyes with dreams of sherbert
and tiles I've yet to paint:)
