Celebrating the wonders of all things natural!

Bloom like a Rose

https://i1.wp.com/bonnielambert.artistwebsites.com/displayartworkartistwebsites.html Today I made a new discovery about someone I know. I’ve worked with Bonnie, remotely, over the years, as she’s the designer for a publishing company I work with on occasion. Recently I’ve received some emails about her art shows and paintings, but I was always so busy, I never took the time to look at them. Today, I did, and am I glad I did. Her paintings are beautiful, moving and colorfully soulful. Rose Street is one that has a particular effect on me. Hidden talents are coming forward; I say Bloom!

We are all seemingly being prompted to explore and share our interests and talents, because that’s what makes us thrive. “The glory of God is humanity fully alive.” I heard that quote on Hay House radio the other day. We’ve got a lot of living to do, so let’s open up to our unique wonders. I wonder what wonderful surprises are in store for us… “Go boldly in the direction of your dreams…….” Thoreau said to humanity.

“Bloom like a rose,” I say.

And as I just read right after I posted this, that one of my favorite authors, Ray Bradbury, died today, I will add this wise, bestselling sage and author’s words about why we are called to live fully and share our talents with the world. Talking to Caltech’s graduating class of 2000, he urged them “to witness, to celebrate, and to be part of this universe…you’re here one time, you’re not coming back. And you owe, don’t you? You owe back for the gift of life.” I always wanted to hear him speak, and I missed several talks he did at the local library. I missed my chance to meet him and hear him speak. Let that be a lesson to me, to all of us:

Live. Now.

  1. What a beautiful post Tracy, it was really a blow for me to hear about Ray Bradbury… he was also one of my favorites, introduced to me through books that my uncle Mickey had left behind when he died. I too have regret for not hearing him speak as I had vocalized this intent to many and it was such a gift that he lived so close by.

    …but what a gift that I have a friend in my life who shares and appreciates many of the same things that I treasure… Thank you Ray Bradbury for reminding me of the values that I hold dear and of the friendships in my life that embody them…
