Today, I received a very special parcel in my post office box in Vermont. A padded enveloped stuffed with a bit of magic ... The whole thing was wrapped with tender care opening it made my day!

Look what I got from Kim at Queen-of-Arts ! A handful of hand-painted rocks ! Rocks that she paints with little messages. Rocks that you can keep for yourself and place in strategic places to inspire you. Rocks that you can give to loved ones, friends, people you care for. Rocks that you can simply leave in your path, on a bench in a park, in the subway, at the restaurant, on a sidewalk and that someone else will find. Rocks to share with others with little messages of love for them to find ...

I have kept one of them for myself, the one with the word "peace" painted on its surface. I have given one to my husband and it sits besides his computer. Ulysse has chosen another one, "Lick your plate" and he has given to his fairy-God-Mother Viki. I have left one on a seat in a bus in Montreal, sent another one to my friend Nadine in Paris. I have place one on the steps of the Public Library in Richford, Vermont and another one on the seat of a motorcycle in the village. All of them rocks are gone somewhere else and who knows what path they will take once they are found ...

This is such a wonderful gesture to stretch your arms and wrap them around the world with bits of love and compassion ...

You have touched my heart, Kim ! Thank you !

Busy, busy !

Too busy to snap pictures of my new paintings, too busy to list them on eBay or Etsy. Work, work, work ! Gotta work ! Gotta finish this huge Frida painting, gotta finish my Christmas card, gotta finish a couple of commissioned paintings, gotta wrap and ship art, gotta get ready for the Holidays, gotta keep some time to play and relax with my family but gotta rush, gotta finish everything in time, gotta go ! I think I am the new version of the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland !

Oh! My! Time is flying! Gotta go! Oh My ....

What a great gift to receive!
And what a wonderful idea to pass them on.
I think that the good thoughts you are extending to others surely return to you....

What a lovely idea and leaving the rocks in different places for others to find randomly-how very nice. I would love to find a rock like that!

Thanks for sharing,
