Il mantello rosso di Maria - by L Moore

Mary's red mantle

 Mary, queen of Saints

If you could have had bobbles

and finery, I'd give you

my red mantle, in

thanks for your unconditional Love

Mary's mantle was sketched last night
with a dear friend in mind;
she loves Mary and the colour red,
and she has had a tough couple of days

ciao, mi carissima, you are loved!

As above, I sometimes play the doodle game with my kids; it is like the game where you go around the dinner table telling a story, each adding a line to the adventure, instead you put markers to paper and
create a picture rather than a tale..

Enjoy the moments in your day ..they compound to make a life

blue Mary ~ by L Moore

Mary and Mona share
that same knowing look,

like they've been there,
but Mary has an underlying pain,

blue Mary..

In Memory of My Uncle

 St Michael Archangel ~ by L Moore

I knew him very little really
But his son has 5 beautiful girls
and they made their grandad's heart sing.

They too will miss him.

In memory of Uncle Bob

Monday, June 2, 2014


sun, rain, dirt, insects

earth's abundance, holy ground

breath of life

I want my children to know what they are eating

to know that food comes from the ground, the farm..

that real food is slow, takes time to grow, to prepare, to eat

I want them to dirty their hands in the soil

to grow a small patch every year

to feel the sun and rain and cloud cover overheard

Tomorrow's Tomatoes

Our many Goddesses ~ by L Moore

tiny, tender, earth's

greening shoots; primavera

tomorrow's garden

Today the kids and I hoe,
laughing, stretching out, digging deep
spring awakens an inner vigour;
a need to plant, to be one with the earth,,
a great joy from depths within

and so the cycle begins again,
planting, growth, abundant harvest

honouring her,

this month of May

Are We There Yet?

new day's dawn awaits
opportunity refined
outline a fresh path

the new year is well underway for most, but i am still honing my path..
never too late to get on with it!

Peter Bregman at hbr blog network suggests that successful people should have 2 lists, a focus list and an ignore list, but not in that order..
"what am I willing not to achieve?
what doesn't make me happy?
what's not important to me? 

then can one can ask the complimentary set of questions

what am I trying to achieve?
what makes me happy?
what's important to me?"

 a new day, a new month, a new year it's a great time to visualize a plan, to start fresh, to add a few new colours to my palette..

In January for several years i have collaged my goals, a simple and elegant tool, So, it's February, no time like the present!
I pulled out some magazines, the scissors and glue, grabbed my teenagers, because this is a wonderful habit for young adults too, and thought about these questions as we collaged. Thought about our truths, what was important, and threw it all out there onto paper.

Go about this project with intention. It is very powerful. Warning, if you use a poster expect to want to fill it, this can be somewhat consuming, in a good way, and you can always use smaller paper!
busy, busy, busy
we've missed you!
