Exploring, like we do, we found this great little Monastery in the canyon near our place.  Actually, I've passed the little sign along the mountain road so many times, as I was on my way to this thing or that, & told myself I would go up there someday.  It's Spring Break this week, so off we went to the Ramakhrishna's place.

They are on the top of a small mountain that has the most awesome view, & there are trails out there....lots of trails, ones I've never traveled. Their little gardens rows with their organic vegetables are pretty, & make me want for a simple life like that. Land, open space, peace.

My brain is screwy sometimes.  I know it, it's okay.  My thoughts often feel like they're at war with themselves.  I just feel like everything is going to be alright,  & I can breathe more when I am out in the wide open beauty of it all.  Anyway, so now I have to go back!

I did this little Acrylic painting above last week.  I hated it at first.  I kept working it & think it kind of turned out pretty now.  Yesterday, sick of painting & not wanting to do the whole messy paper clay thing, I got out a hoop & did some embroidery.  I came up with this girl below.
