meet Kyndall

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you
a community blessing.

I would love to keep you blissfully in the dark...

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. matt. 5:9

The "peacemakers" are those who not only live in peace with others but moreover do their best to preserve peace and friendship among mankind and between God and man...."imitating of God's love of man"...
Saint Gregory of Nyssa.
a blessed my opinion,

so very thankful for seven adults who ALL in good humor listened to me sing 'happy birthday' off-key...

truly...I manage to sing anything I choose to sing, completely flat...and yet, everyone is still smiling.
I am telling you, kindness is runs in families.

b & b

true confession.  I'm artsy.  I mean waaayyy artsy....

and then I get Pablo Picasso syndrome and
Here are some of the Jungian descriptions of an artist Personality Type:
prone to discouragement
socially uncomfortable
not self confident
not aggressive, lower energy
fearful ,anxious, guarded
not confrontational
can be overwhelmed by unpleasant feelings
private, second guesses self
prone to quitting...
prone to quitting...
prone to quitting...

It's really laughable how often I "quit" ....
and then I have a session with a couple of adorable kiddos...
and I realize how much I LOVE what I do...

so for quitting...
tomorrow, no promises. lol


hope you had a super wonderful and
happy thanksgiving.
