What is the blemish I am deleting, to rectify and purify growing toward Shavuot? 
The possible weakness of not being in joy in all that I can be. 
Would I stay bound closed within myself or open my glory to receive and share?

Blemish of not being creative, nor bonding in my foundation even within boundaries.


My joy today was boundless in discovering these new unfurling spiral palm fronds in my garden.
This treat from nature I have never before witnessed. 
While photographing, I couldn't contain my excitement. 
Who can I share this with?  You!
Aren't they awesome?!
I didn't even crop the photos!

Day 13 Yes! Grounded in Earth’s Foundation to use my power in creation. I unfurl the spirals of my birthing limbs, transform, evolve and reach out into the universe, bonding, as intimate or expansive as I can be. With all my strength I try to consciously connect with earth and community. 

I invite you to feel the spirals of my life unfold in joy, and to feel yours, and like biblical Batya (daughter of Pharoah) toward Moshe, reach outstretched to be all I can be, and in awe of the Holy One who gives me my presence, and ability to welcome joy.

Within boundaries, like a baby in a basket in the Nile, I can only stretch so far, and that protects me.

Creating in Foundation within Strength, Limitations, and Discipline. 

I’m thinking today of my current writing, an admonition to be conscious, aware, gracious and generous, to credit the individual artist their copyright © --for uplifting, inspiring and complimenting our Neshamahs.  I, too, remind myself to always credit the visual and performing composer, musician, dead, obm, or alive with appreciation of their gift.
