The Tree of Peace

I meditated long and deep on what is peace and found my breath, moving in and out, like a reciprocal offering, a beautiful exchange with the animate world around me.  I looked up the definition of peace and found “tranquility and calm” and “the absence of war.” I looked at spiritual texts and noted that the Hebrew word for peace is “shalom.” meaning right relationship with God, one another, and with creation. The concept of peace is wholeness and right relationship and it brings the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Essentially peace is found within. It is radiated outward. It’s a decision each of us makes in every moment. It is the attitude with which we live our lives.  I feel this is why Jesus said Blessed are the peace makers, for they shall be called children of God. May we each decide here and now, and every day hereafter, to live in right relationship, to live in peace.

"I use vibrant color(often sourced from minerals and botanical sources gathered at sites I visit and the essence of which I want to depict), line, symbol, image, rhythm and word, to expand consciousness, share ideas, enhance connection, push boundaries, question limitations, accentuate the luminous, initiate healing and express my wild heart, soul and spirituality. My work is informed by the natural world around me - the plants, trees, mountains, waters, wild animals, bird song and all the textures, sounds and aromas of the living Earth expressing herself.  I draw inspiration for my work from the deep well of the Divine Feminine, as well as from Old World myths, sacred stories, poetry, art and culture."
