Sunday Meditations - Hearts and Mothers

That beating heart drumming a continuous rhythm of love and life...Today I think of my mother in her 80's that I am so grateful for, and all the journeys we've taken together. Mothers make me think of flowers, warm cookies in the oven, helping hands, busy hands, creative hands, and that ever nurturing spirit. The photo's are from our Gaia Mother (Earth mother, named after the supreme Greek goddess) -- a bleeding heart from our garden and one of our birch trees that revealed it's heart. So, hail to the mothers, the great Gaia Mother, the female creative energy of our world, and may we all be nurtured as needed, and move toward harmonious balance in the world.

Women in Art
Now sit back and savor this wonderful YouTube video, "Women in Art" by Philip Scott Johnson. It artfully melds one portrait into another spanning 500 years of female portraits in Western Art. The music is Bach's Sarabande from Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 performed by Yo-Yo Ma. This video was nominated as Most Creative Video in the 2nd Annual YouTube Awards (2007, I think). I enjoyed viewing this from the perspective of the woman/female creating energy of the world, as well, as studying the portrait details and wide variations of styles and faces portrayed by the artists......
