Women are the primary resource of the planet. They give birth, we come from them. They are mothers, they are visionaries, they are the future. If we can figure out how to make women feel safe and honor women, it would be parallel or equal to honoring life itself."

- Eve Ensler



Punctual Snow

And still the pensive spring returns,
And still the punctual snow! - Emily Dickinson

Early this morning while the sun was still rising, I began to prepare for the girls' arrival.






















Today is the day we begin work on our canvas.























I took some time to admire the cups that they designed, so rich with symbolism, so magical.























When the girls arrived we sipped hot cocoa...
 






















 then we bundled up and headed into the woods for our nature walk.



















Refreshed and recharged, we returned to the studio to begin working on our canvases.    























 The girls removed the paper pulp to reveal their images.  Our theme for our canvas is giving.  What are our gifts?  How can we share our gifts with the world? 








 
















They embellished the canvas, with paint and collage.

 











































Inspiration moves in mysterious ways, suddenly the girls began to sing and it was angelic!

We sought wisdom from the "Guide for Advanced Souls"....







then we decided to do a quick releasing ceremony before the Thanksgiving break.  Each girl wrote down a grief that she wished to let go of then tossed the paper into the fire.  We celebrated with S'mores.




 Here we nourish the creative life, 
here we howl! - Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, PhD

Have a wonderful holiday, girls!

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind. - Henry James
