A Secret Message…



“Hope” is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops – at all


And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little BirdThat kept so many warm


I’ve heard it in the chillest land

And on the strangest Sea

Yet – never – in Extremity,

It asked a crumb – of me.

– Emily Dickinson


One of my all time favorite poets and poems.

In The Studio today May 2, 2012 I drew this bird, scanned and digitally altered it. I was craving turquoise and red! My friend Teresa of Right Brain Planner tweets in #secretmessage hashtags. I love the idea because sometimes we want to express something to someone in this digital world without saying who precisely we are sharing it with. So – today I do my first of many secret messages.

      Love the idea of All Things Good. Life is difficult – no way around that so we might as well look at the good!

      Ah… thank you. That means a lot to me. Dealing with a chronic illness isn’t an easy thing. It is just very important to me to lead my life happy regardless of the bad things we all deal with. Thank you for your comment – I hope you stop by again.
