This is “Teege” also known as “Teege Luiggi”, “Big Poppy” & “Pappa Bear”. He is the eldest of our three cats. He has had quite a reputation for not being the friendliest of cats, but he has mellowed out SO much over the years and has become a treasured friend and quite a little sweetie. He gave us a bit of a scare last week when he got dehydrated and really sick. He is recovering nicely but it is hard to see him so frail. 🌈 He’s our only outdoor cat and likes to keep me company on the back deck~my “summer office”. It’s funny how a pets presence can instill such peace into your life.

Do you have a “fur baby”? If so, share one thing you love about your pet with me in the comments below. Let’s honor these little miracles that bring so much JOY to our lives.

I love this quote, it reminds me how we are connected to each other and the earth in small and large ways, co-creating with each other. I believe we are our best selves when we remember this. 🙂 Hope you are having the most Whimsical Wednesday!

I have been in the studio today reflecting on the next piece of art I am creating for #L2TCollective (my ongoing art collaboration with @tinahirsig). This was the last piece I added to the collection and I’m still really in love with it. It was free and fun to paint and I love how light and airy it is. It gives me all the “feels” of being at the ocean.
.
I chose to work in a circle as it symbolizes wholeness which is something I strive for in my life. I wrote this found poem to go with it that I thought I would share with you…

“Savor Joy”

We are microcosms of creation

Resting safely in circles of support

Called by the Divine within

to birth all we are meant to be

Let go and create

Set yourself free

Possibilities lie within

Savor the joy that is felt

“All of us are seeking the same thing. We share the desire to fulfill the highest, truest expression of ourselves as human beings.”

I love Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday Conversations and this book is a beautiful gem of wisdom. Have any of you read it or listened to the podcast?
