|Watercolor and pen for Paint Party Friday ~ always more to do ~ yet wanted to post for PPF|
|A 'froggy day' on Cape Ann MA ~ for Friday Sky Watch ~|
Amazing sky with sun glistening on the harbor and creating a rather mystical feel and look.
|haiku for Carpe Diem Haiku, Haiku My Heart and Haiku Friday|
The muse can be a lively sprite but mostly it is my 'monkey mind' and my little 'ego' that like to elicit chaos. Since everyday is a new day, I keep that in mind and practice a mantra, 'let go' and that usually helps me be grateful for 'what is' each day. Do you have a mantra?
Today we are sharing with these creative bloggers:
