About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

The last post

Don't you think daisies are just the friendliest flowers? I caught these two smiling at a butterfly in my garden!


This will be the last post on this blog - but I'm not leaving! I have decided to move my art over to one of my other blogs, 'BLISSFUL THINGS', as it is getting very difficult and time-consuming keeping up with all my blogs. As I set myself the intention to slow down in 2012, to sit for a few moments longer enjoying my early morning coffee, stopping at each plant in the garden just a bit longer in stead of just rushing through, making notes of what has to be done and to listen more intently to the sound of the birds, the sound of life happening outside my studio, it seems fitting for me to combine the two blogs because, after all, my art is one of the most blissful things in my life!

I also have a Nature Journal at 'HEDGIE'S NATURE JOURNAL' and sometimes post some of my art there as well and am also a contributor at 'SKETCHING IN NATURE'. I also have a profile page at 'RedBubble' where I offer my art for sale in the form of cards, framed prints, posters, T-shirts etc. and that takes up a lot of my on-line time.

I would VERY much love it if you would visit me at BLISSFUL THINGS and I really look forward to seeing you there!

You are more than welcome to still leave comments here, I will still be receiving e-mail notifications as I am not closing the blog down, so I do look forward to hearing from you.

  1. I'll be following you over to Blissful Things, and checking in to the other sites too. Your 2012 "intention" is inspiration and so is your art!

  2. Oh WOW Kris, this is so GREAT! I'm really looking forward to seeing you there and thank you for your beautiful words, really appreciate that! Please let me know how you find the 'migration' experience.. if it's not what you expected, I'd like to know and re-think the situation. Hugs

  3. Love your daisies, Maree. Wonderful way to end the blog. See you on BLISSFUL THINGS!
