I’ve been away from the blogging circuit this last week due to a really bad sinus infection that threw me in bed and away from the world.  It gave me a really quite time to reflect on things, look at life and dig deep.

I find that sometimes life can get in the way to really living.  I am doing some energy clearing with a friend who is a wellness coach, and yes my sinuses are opening up and the world is coming back into focus.

It’s like my garden trellis, if it gets overgrown and unruly the leaves and vines take over choking out the blooms. That’s what happens when negative energy creeps into your life: muscles tighten, sinuses clog the headaches ensue.

Over loading life can cause negative energy, scheduling to many things and trying to meet the demands of a career and family sometimes stops you from really living.  Real living is savoring the moment, noticing the little things and finding gratitude, finding pure and positive energy in all you do; creating joy.

Take time this week to find your garden trellis, and trim out the negative energy, and you will find the blossoms ready to bloom.

Where Life Thrives…..Finding Rest and Relaxation.

I have been traveling for a week, one of my favorite places for rest and relaxation is the Central Coast of California.  An old haunting ground, where I worked and played before I moved to the mountains of Arizona.

Now I go back just to rejuvenate. I have a favorite place to stay on the ocean and favorite restaurants that beacon me to eat.  I travel into wine country to visit my favorite vineyard and sip their magical libations.

Moro Rock

On the way back down the coast I love to stop in the port of Moro Bay where the giant rock (moro) stands in the bay.  It is a rarity to see it without fog, but this trip it was magnificent.

While in Moro Bay I always take time to visit the Estuary.  It is one of the largest preserves on the West Coast.

Moro Bay Estuary

When I came home and walked into the studio, I wanted to paint that feeling of total rejuvenation.

I could have chosen Pismo Beach where I look across San Luis Bay to Point Sal, the view from my balcony every morning; Instead, I chose the Estuary.  The smell of sea the taste of salt the pulse of life during high tide. The Majestic White Egrets standing tall in the marsh grasses. That magical mystical place between sea and land where life thrives abundantly.
