Personal peace

We each find peace
in our own way

I find peace
by spending a
lot of time alone

More and more
the outside world
tries to intrude
on my peace of mind

Twenty-four hour
tragedy, misery, disease
hatefulness and violence
screams at all of us
day in and day out

It’s difficult to keep one’s equilibrium
when surrounded by all that cruelty
so I try not let it into my life

I don’t let nasty and negative people
poison my life either
no matter their relationship

Standing up for what I believe in
the right for women, children and animals to
live without fear
to live in peace
helps me be peaceful because I know
in my heart
that I’m not ignoring what has to be done
in order to bring peace to others

Creating gives me peace
and saved my life

Nature brings me peace

being surrounded by books
and art
brings me peace

Having fun
singing really loud
are all things
that bring peace into my life

I make sure that my surroundings
wrap me in a cocoon of peace
that my home is a place of comfort
and beauty
a place where I can think
and recharge

The people and animals
I love bring me joy
not necessarily peace

These are some of the things
that make my life peaceful
and worth living

Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
This quote is on the inside cover of my fourth gratitude journal. I scanned this image instead of photographing it and I couldn’t get the whole thing on my scanner.
The drawing is from a photo of my yoga teacher that I took and traced around and then surrounded with Zentangle Inspired Art. I’m going to play around with copies of it and different coloring techniques.

Imagine peace with me~for Bling

Tell Me About It


Close your eyes
Let’s imagine together
This is where you are
sitting in this sweet
red boat
Peaceful waters
nothing but the wind
blowing your hair gently
you reach over the edge
to touch the water
and it tickles your
fingertips like ice cold
but soothing
and as you lay your
head back to rest
you see an eagle soaring
high above you
he sees you
and you see him
and now listen
in your mind

imagine the

fly, soar on the wind
with the eagle
