*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Hi Everyone 😀
Sending lots of smiles, and love your way! I hope everyone is safe and healthy!

I've been doing lots of cleaning and yard work. Things are growing and everything is turning green.
I feel since we have been put into isolation, that it has been a real growing experience. Like a rebirth, a transition. A time to really connect with yourself. To know the true you. To take care of yourself! To make every choice, with value behind it. I feel this is a time to be creative, and support the new ways being birthed. To inspire and spread love, not panic. For those of you feeling fear, be real with your feelings. Don't hide it. Be authentic! But, when you are feeling fear, give yourself more love!!

The other day, many of my neighbours were outside doing yard work. Mom had just finished making peanut butter cookies. So, I said to mom, let's spread some love. I went out and asked 3 different neighbours, if they were allergic to peanuts. Everyone said no. So, I packaged up cookies and delivered them. Even put a lysol wipe on all the plastic containers, just incase! Everyone was so happy and smiling! Even though we are so separate at this time, I feel we are closer.

I was going through one of my journals and read something I wrote down from one of my blog friends. I don't even remember when she wrote this. From the words of "Magaly". 😀

Be fiercely You.
Be wild (if you want)
Do it with others (if you can)
And remember.....
In Darkness,
Let your fire
Be Light!

(Thanks Magaly ❤️)

I finished another ink and acrylic painting. I call it "Connect To Your Light".
Two crows swirling around. The one in yellow being the the crow's light (soul).
Be safe everyone! Together, we are going to get through all of this!
Big Hugs!

  1. I love the picture you did and the outlook. I work from home so for me, it's my Happy Place! And now that's it's spring, double hot dog, life is good. I'm chopping trees and soon to build my first ever raised bed. Never did those before. Super duper excited. Sending you lots of hugs!

  3. Spring is much further along where you are than here in Edmonton! We've still got snow. It snowed last weekend and was quite cold, but now it's warming up. Today was a little above zero, yay! I like your new painting. Stay safe, all of you!

  4. I'm glad you are doing well. This is a time to reach into you mind and soul and find true kindness and love for our fellow man/woman. Those words from Magaly are so insightful during these troubling days ahead.
    Stay safe and healthy, doll.

  5. good to read you. I like what you did about the cookies. It's time like this it would be more fun to be in a neighborhood like yours sounds like - not far away from people.
    love your new art work. Most of the time I have a good outlook, some days not so good. Oh well ..yes we will get through this.

  10. There is something in the positioning of the crows that make me feel like they are dancing with each other. And it really delights me! It's hard sometimes to think of things like dancing in these times, but we have to hold on to whatever little joys we can to keep us going. Like sharing peanut butter cookies with the neighbors. :)

  15. One of the things I love about you is that YOU inspire and spread love, always. What a kind act, delighting your neighbours with a simple and delicious pack of homemade cookies! In these times, we need kindness and love more than ever before. Kudos to you and your mom! And I absolutely agree that this is a time to really connect with ourselves; to our light as you've depicted in your beautiful artwork above. Keep creating, and stay safe! Big Hugs! <3

  17. I am hoping to get out and do some yard work soon. I hurt my knee a month and a half ago and although it is better, I am going to take it slow and do a little work at a time so I don't aggravate it!

    How wonderful that you helped spread joy and kindness. Love it!

    Your piece is wonderful. I love the light in it. I also love the words of Magaly- the art and poetry go so well together. :)

    Stay safe!

  22. Aw, such a sweet thing to do for your neighbors! <3

    And wow, your latest painting is soooo stunning. Easily one of my favorites from you!

  23. What you're doing for your neighbors is the sort of thing that keeps me from losing hope on humanity. There are so many heartless people out there, so many who can't think beyond themselves, but... there are also the Stacy(s) of the world, balancing the bad with all their good.

    Thank you for sharing my words and your art with us, I do love seeing them dance together. Stay safe, my Stacy love!

  24. Indeed, this period is bringing out the best in some, but idiots are still content to be idiots, I suppose. Nearby local playing fields are closed, but yesterday I saw people out there flying drones.

  25. Your garden looks good and I like your painting.
    That was really nice to make cookies for everyone, it's wonderful thoughts and gestures like this that bring people together … well done.

    Keep on staying safe and taking care.
    My good wishes.

    All the best Jan

  28. The crow painting in your heading made me smile. Adorable!

    For many people whose lives have been disrupted, it is an opportunity to explore their creative sides. It sounds like you and your neighbors are making the best of things.

    Big hugs!

  30. You have a wonderful, positive attitude about our current situation - I love it. Like you I have been gardening a lot, and it truly calms and grounds me. So far I haven't felt fear (perhaps I am naive), I follow our state's and county's guidelines (our county has a superb public health officer), do grocery shopping for my elderly neighbors and just hope that we all stay healthy. I do worry about the impact on our economy, but saving lives is more important.

  34. What a great post Stacy! Love your painting, it seems to have such a warm message that is appropriate right now! You are such a great neighbor, kindness is so important. Your garden is really taking off, we are still a few weeks behind here and just had more snow the other day! But things are starting to green up, so there is hope! Stay well friend!

  35. I do think this is a time for contemplative reflection and time to let our Creative Juices flow. It is something that initially so much of Humanity has resisted since they have no Control over it, but letting go and just Being Still isn't so bad.
