Peering into the Essence of Mary #12

 Self Portrait Collage

Finally at the end of my Mary creating days!

I will be putting my pencils & paints away for awhile,
sitting  back and savouring every detail of
this Mary adventure, it has been
hard work but fun.

Most importantly it has been a getting to know,
to experience the essence of all
you Mary lovers here, 
I am grateful for all your
various contributions and
gracious comments of mine. 
Thank You

'Virgin a Day'

Your creations to honor Mary have been beautiful, mysterious and intriguing. Along with the photography I think you must be proud. I feel gifted by your art.

When your page opened up today, I immediately thought it might be a tattoo on someone's bicep. Then, after I saw it was more of your wonderful artwork, I thought, why not? I have appreciated my visits here every day and look forward to catching up with you as I can as the days roll by. You are a gem amongst stones Ms. Foxy.

Sue I love visiting you and also savoring essence of Mary posts. Please don't put those pencils and paints away for too long.
I love this collage, Sue. Can you explain the process of how the layers went? It has been great visiting with you.
Dearest Sue,
I LOVE that this is a self-portrait. To find the Mary in ourselves is the final challenge and you have done it well my friend. She is beautiful, as are you. I adore all the creative and fascinating endeavors that have transpired on this blog in the name of sharing the Madonna. I felt that it was a kind of metamorphoses taking place, a butterfly edging its way slowly out of the cocoon to arrive at such brilliant beauty. And I love that we are friends and that it doesn't end here. So see you soon my dear and thank you for the blessing of this time together.

A friendly street light illuminates the dark path as does bright hellos! Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning. Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue Recuerda mi Corazon

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends... By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'
