Sunshine & Shadows

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you can not see the shadows" Helen Keller
Been a big week around here, shadows, floods, wild wind storms and touches of sunshine.  Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what bloggers from all over have found in their sky to share with us this week.
I was lucky to be gifted a membership for Ali Edwards OneLittle Word Workshops for 2013. The theme is built around the idea of having one word as your goal for the year and working on different ways to explore and embrace your ‘word’.  This year I chose ZEN, a blissful sunshine afternoon would not go astray, but mostly for me it is about finding a place to be centred and balanced in between the situations we find ourselves in and where we might like to be, or making the best of it. Whatever else it will be an adventure.

It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once;
a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising.
Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and glowing,
on sea and continents and islands,
each in its turn, as the round earth rolls. John Muir

My shadow box project packed full with pretty details that was on display in the Maya Road booth at CHA. Maya Road has become a favorite source for all kinds of delightful little trims.

Early mornings in southern California bring crisp cool starts and amazing colorful sunrises.
