Spiritual Friday …


I am getting ready to write an Article for a Friend’s Blog this Weekend.

The subject? Spirituality in Divorce.

Going through bits of the ending of the Marriage for Inspiration, I came across this.

A random paper crown that my MIL at the time gifted me with on my 39th Birthday.

A bit that survived the recent big purge, that also seems rather appropriate as I write about a subject that is close to my heart.

It is a celebration of sorts, the ending of something, discovering yourself, and in the process rediscovering your Spiritual Beliefs.

Check back here for the full article on Sunday!

Inspiration Wednesday …

Mid way through Summer + Inspiration comes to me in the Familiar + the New.

Since I am halfway to the 5 0, I decided to share ( a bit or two every day ) special + favorite + unique bits that I have amassed lo these 49 years:


My very own Tardis.


Oh Teen Angst, 1986


Union Jacks even back then, 1985


I clearly remember when my Friends at the time e-mailing me ‘ GO GET the newest issue of Somerset Studio Magazine, You’re IN IT! ‘ … can you see ME?


Then my Website at the time, justgenie.com was in Rubber Stamp Madness Magazine!

Said Good Bye to George’s Fence after 14 years …


Had long over due BFF Time:



We discovered these books, and I want all of them.

Had the best 4th of July ever right on my front lawn:


Of course I was the 6th Avenue Photographer, happily so.

Spiritual Friday …


This couldn’t be more true + speaks to where I’m at right now.

I have alluded to struggling with being consistent with my Spirituality: Praying, Meditating, and Manifesting.

Somewhere between last week + going into a new month tomorrow, I have found my way back and it feels right.

 I say my Morning Prayers outside. I can’t tell you how Grounding it is to Pray in the Morning Sun.

Did this after Praying 😉


I’ve taken to Manifesting with a lit Green Candle, which I love because it’s also the color of Guardian Angel Raphael’s healing light. I also did a bit of Angel work with Raphael today, very powerful.


I did a bit of a Reading as well today, with my Wild Kuan Yin Oracle and these two right after each other? Damn.

Truly, straight through to my heart.

I thoroughly encourage you to get this deck: Beautiful + the accompanying Book is spot on.

And lastly, while making my Morning Coffee + Breakkie (usually lasting way beyond the Morning): I always play a Joel Osteen Message or two …

My most Fave of the moment is #729 Pray For Others   (go on listen) …

I want to be a Warrior and stand in the gap.

Bring it July!
