Magical, Macro and Creative Everyday

Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of the artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.

Today is our blog hop, Magical Monday Meme for 'creatives' of all mediums. Join us by linking up below where it reads 'enter' 'you are next'. 

We are also exploring photographers at Macro Monday and Artists of various mediums at Creative Everyday. The first  photo is a macro of the sky yesterday as the sun was glistening through. 
There is a related haiku below also. The second photo is of a 'merry go round or also called a carousel. I actually rode on one of the up and down horses on Sunday. There was a lovely park thatwent to with my brother and his grand children and 'my inner child' I could not resist a ride. I had not seen a carousel in several years. Fun!

clouds, clouds masking light
stronger than covering of sky
sun beam rays abound.

As you can see I find 'magic' everywhere whether it is skyward or at a park filled with delightful fun rides and games. Hope you will share your 'magical creations' with us today on Magical Monday Meme with linky below.

Have a magical week ahead and enjoy each precious moment.

Hugs and namaste,


We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or ideas to delight us all in the day ~ especially ArtMuse Dog ^_^
