Kanzeon (Kuan Yin, The Bodhisattva of Compassion)

I am feeling attacked and vulnerable today. What is worse, is that the various events that have me feeling this way are so random and passive aggressive that I'm not sure if I'm creating the whole scenario in my own head. Gets a person feeling paranoid it does.

Ah well life is too short to get stuck here.

Still working on Kanzeon's little garden.

This might be a good time to try to think about my "attackers" with as much compassion as I can, at least that's what I think my little bodhi is telling me...

Garden on My Mind

I received this little Bohdi Satva in a trade with Lilla Jizo a yogi and artist.

S/he's been hanging out near some other treasures on a shelf in my studio.

Gardens have been on my mind lately and I think s/he needs a lotus tree to sit under.

realized I have a piece I embroidered back when I was about 20 that fits the the hole nicely.

Blue skies have been added.

Gold Star

Tonight I get a gold star, I just completed one of those lingering tasks on my to do list. This one has lingered since January, ugh. It was one of those things that required decision making, finding files, locating information, and organizing it all. A perfect storm of procrastination, custom made to be utterly painful to do and easily ignored.
I wonder if getting it cleared up will free up some mental energy now.

Pine Patterns

Still messing with my 3" by 3" squares...
Not really sure where I'm going with them.
I think they may just be my brains way of keeping my toes in the water while it is preoccupied with other things. So I will go with it.
