The Bounty of the Universe

The flowers' party
9 x 12 inches

On Saturday Hay House, the company Louise Hay started
is beginning a free, 10 day  World Summit over the Internet.
Louise Hay is the first person who I heard say, "the bounty
of the universe," and her point of view set me on a course
to enjoying my life.

As artists that bounty is always available, but it is even
more remarkable in the spring and summer.  This year
our long, cold spring has produced such an extended, lush
period of flowering trees.  One after another they come into
bloom, and then it's the next lot.  Lately it's been lilacs
-- the most profuse we've seen in a decade.

My kitchen table always feels like a display for abundance.
And right now it's home to pansies, and the last of the
 forget-me-nots that fill the garden with an ocean
of blue flowers.

I did this little painting to capture the mood -- joyous
and light -- a time for dancing with the cats and each
other.  Everyone so filled with spring fever -- bubbling
up for months now, that there's got to be a party.  And
I think the month of June will be one long party!
Woo Hoo.  (Lots of work too, don't worry!)

Have a life's-a-party day.
