A Wave of Truth

A Wave of Truth

A wave of truth overcomes me

bubbling up with surges of joy

waving through my gut

altering all my understandings

How could I not be grateful?

I am awash in Love

Bright Ideas

Bright Ideas

Yes, if you have looked through my site, you may have spotted this face before. It looked different. This is a new mollage using my images in a new composition. Some days I have bright ideas. Other days, not so much. Today, I am merely getting back on the steed. Without judgement (or at least without too much), I take the commitment leap once again. Begin again, and again, and once again again – whatever it takes to develop the habits that I wish to.

I am also working on combining blogs perhaps so that I can get more mileage out of my efforts.  I created this image for today’s Daily Napkin email, and thought I would share it here as well.  Oh, and here’s the napkin entry for today:

Bright Dream

The real thing
The truth shining through
Is obvious to the center
Where gut feelings are born
That clear truth
That speaks of everything
So apparent in anything
Shines light on the darkest corner
This bright dream
That wakes upon its dreaming
A beacon of hope’s veracity
Permeates each conscious hour_________________
Note from Dena –  Ever since my mom passed away, in early March, I have been experiencing a catharsis through grief, which also interrupted the publishing of the Daily Napkin. I believe the mending of the  fabric of my life adds richness and depth to my creative expression, even though the process causes lapses in my daily practices. 


Even at the beach, she appeared unruffled…

There isn’t much that would ruffle Fanny

Her countenance of fortitude

indicative of an intelligent woman

with no real bones to pick

other than the major ones one must face



Just to illustrate my point

I re-worked an image that I did to illustrate a book cover years ago. It fit The Daily Napkin today, so I thought that I would re-create it for that and here.

I am noticing that it has been a month since I posted an image. This is not a good trend. I intend to remedy it.
