* Off to see the Wizard ...

The time has come the Walrus said, to talk of many things.  Knee replacements would be among the topics.  I leave today for the clinic.  Tomorrow morning is surgery.  Then four days, and I should be home.

In the meantime another image has come to me.   I sketched her out on a piece of paper, and could not resist a quick block in on canvas before leaving.  It's really really hard to stop once I get going and I strongly dislike leaving her in this unfinished state.  However, it is what it is.

Her name is "Medicine Woman".  She told me as I was sketching her, "Love is the greatest healer."  I believe that.

She sits in the forest, mixing the potions in her exquisite medicine bowl.  Around her, all the ingredients she needs exist in Mother Natures pharmacy.

Very very very preliminary block in.
Thank you for dropping by my lovelies.  Always a pleasure to have you here.  I'll probably be off line for a little while getting 'my feet under me' again.  :o)  Be well.  Be Happy.  And keep creating all the gorgeous stuff which is YOU. 

I find this Rumi quote so interesting.  How far are you willing to stretch yourselves out of your comfort zones?  Where would you be if you 'lived where you fear to live."  WOW.

"Forget Safety.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”
― Rumi
