If you are reading this blog, you are to be commended for your good taste, enjoyment of beauty, and the peace of mind that it brings to your Spirit. The silhouette in this picture is of my sister, who is at prayer. Some butterflies (or were they leaves?) appear to be flying from the top of her head. I love this picture.
I think that prayer can open us up to the magic of our own creativity . This can happen if we have a solid relationship with a higher power. My hope is that everyone reading this has a joyous and prosperous 2012.
Leave a comment on how you use your Spirit Rocks. Some people use them as paper weights or table ornaments.Others use them as meditation devices. How do you use them?

It’s Wednesday the 28th of December, 2011. I sense that big changes are in store for 2012. As I write this, I am still debating whether or not to launch the web site “Your Spirit Rocks.com”. Already I have purchased the domain name, but what does that mean? All is says is that I have a place holder for that name.
The name,“Your Spirit Rocks!” is a double-entendre (and the exclamation point was added for emphasis) that immediately sounds like a wonderful compliment, but in another way, can be referring to item(s) or a quality that you possess.
My hope is that the website will incorporate both interpretations intentionally. One’s spirit as I understand it, is an essential element of one’s personality. Just as I have discussed very early on, that these Spirit Rocks are meant to be passed along. It does not matter if they are kept for a day or a lifetime; So long as they are given in the spirit of GIVING. If you get one, and if it does not really reflect your own Spirit, I would encourage you to pass it along to someone else, so that (in principle), The rock will find it’s way to the one for whom it belongs. Ultimately, it is assumed that we know it is the earth for whom this rock belongs, and will find it’s way back. Above is a picture of the home where most all of the rocks were gathered.

This one I call " Bluenew" because I have run out of names to call these blue rocks. I think I will have to start numbering these rocks to be able to catalog them. I am certain that I have painted over five hundred rocks this past year and will have to create a ledger in order to keep track of the designs. I have started adding little gold flourishes to these designs using a sharpened chopstick. I go through my #00 brushes weekly and the cost begins to add up. Today I purchased 9 - 18"X24" Frames for my show in February. I have just begun my third poster design. I hope to have all 9 posters done in time. I officially got my resale permit today and will begin doing a quarterly tax. The fun never ceases.
