dreamer

This is a beautiful, dreamy little scene from Randolph County in the heart of North Carolina. Reflections are always so nice…

I’m trying something new here & I have to say I’m thankful for my graphic design background. You know those Facebook posts that say, “take a screenshot to find out what [fill in the blank] is”? Well, my quote for 2018 is, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” I don’t know what “it” is so maybe a better quote for me would have been “keep moving forward”.

I have been, and am, a potter by trade. Over the years I’ve combined design & pottery directly and indirectly. And although it might be years behind the curve I’ve recently been having fun taking some of my designs into the world of custom print apparel.

With that, here’s this: the We Stay Love Teespring storefront.

“Tag me and I’ll come back!” my son called out about 100 feet down a less traveled path. Ok! But we kept going. And how beautiful. You kind of lose yourself in these places. Lose track of time & responsibility. These are the days you want to last forever. 

love people 

Sometimes I feel guilty for loving happy quotes. We can’t all act like summer & walk like rain. But I remind myself it’s okay to get excited about positive words, to look for the glimmer of hope.

And I love this quote I read on church signage, “THOSE WHO LOVE PEOPLE LOVE PEOPLE.” It made me happy. It made me smile!

I listened to an engineer speak his truth. He said whatever you want to be in life, work on it and do it a little everyday because we won’t be able to do it forever. He wasn’t talking about becoming wealthy or amassing material goods. He was talking about being happy & being good to others. 

So every day could I practice finding the good?

Love on lovers!

i love us.

I read a news article recently and my first thought response was “I don’t understand the hate, but I do understand the love.” It was a personal account of extreme prejudice. But it was also about the love, support and compassion not only the local community but the global community offered.

I already published this post with only the following three sentences:

I need to be aware. I need to love. And I love us.

This is because I don’t like writing about negativity. It takes my heart to a low place and there is enough of this. It might not be in our personal lives but we are all-to-aware of the atrocities. I’m new to writing and expressing myself in a public forum and am timid when it comes to sharing. I’m also accepting of this part of myself. When I think about it, like this morning watching the sunrise without my cup of coffee but with my camera, I feel I do need to convey where these thoughts are coming from. Not for my audience (because my readership is under 20, thank you friends for those of you who read!) but for myself. For the present and for the future.

There are loving people. We have the joy of coming across them every single day. And that is what we stay love is about.
