“If thou of fortune be bereft,
and in thy store there be but two
loaves left, sell one, and with the
dole, buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.”
What is on the top of your grocery list when you go to the market? How often is it things that feed your soul? For me, my senses are a way back in to remembering our truths. So what I see and gather physically around me in this light, is my soul playing through creativity manifest in the world.
AND WHAT BEAUTY OUR SOULS BE 🙂 !
One thing that has always fed my soul is flowers. I don’t usually have anything too expensive or fancy in my physical home. Just a few tea roses in little sacred containers, scattered to catch my eye on in the space I inhabit. To catch my eye and remind me….
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Just living is not enough.
One must have sunshine,
freedom and a little flower.
-Hans Christen Anderson

The header picture is one I found that led to this incredible artist with the little pieces of soul that flowers be. In my dream world, there is a little stand/table/niche/alcove/spot in every room of the cottage of my heart and on/in each is one of these beautiful creations. They take my breath away.
