Sweet Surrender!

To me, surrender does not mean giving up, but rather giving in.  I have had a deep yearning all summer to turn inward, to detach from social media, to slow down and shift focus.  Instead of surrendering to this urge, I have resisted.  With the blue moon rising, I am finally ready to surrender--to self, to solitude, to summer, to soul...

Instead of being the sun and radiating all of my energy outwards and in all different directions, I am choosing for now to be the moon.  To sit quietly and  gather my energy reflect and center once more.  Wishing you peace and surrender...

Summer Fun!

This was the first chance I've had to paint all summer!  I had so much fun transforming this old painting that was hanging on my wall into a new sea turtle!  It really was "Transformation Tuesday!"

I have also had fun receiving photos from people who have purchased my new book "Beach Blessings: A photographic journey of awakening to the beauty and blessings of the ocean!" Copies are still available on Amazon and at the DCAC Gallery in Manteo.  I will also have more available in my home studio soon.
