Insight Meditation Center Auction

ITEMS FOR AUCTION

I’m so happy that these pieces will be included in the auction for the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, CA . I’ve never been, but as I sand, file and saw, I have let their Dharma talks calm and enlighten me. Or, at least, try to.

If this sounds interesting to you, go to http://www.audiodharma.org/ to stream some of the talks.

I also just finished a 6 week Introduction to Meditation course with them. I am so thankful for the opportunity to really learn the basics of the practice. I thought I had a little knowledge of it, that I would be a quick study. It turns out I am just an infant, after all.  I think that is a fine place to start.

For these pieces, I selected a palette that was not just serene, but also had a gorgeous inner glow. I hope that wearing them is a gentle reminder to be present and be kind.

Sea Glass Bracelet

I’m working on different types of bracelets for the Summer. This is a chain bracelet with four pieces of sea foam glass. It’s a good alternative to the more elaborate ones I usually make that are 7-9 pieces of sea glass. Nice and light, this is wonderful alone or paired with a bangle or two.

Coke Bottle Blues

Today is a beautiful 81 degrees as we close out February. All I can think about is Summer and beach and taking a road trip. I love the early mornings best. On the road. Staggering into a local coffee shop. Sleepy eyed and dreamlike. Inside, the alert activity is in stark contrast to my state of being. The aroma giving me a great big hug. A sip and I begin to come to. The sun waking up with me as I drive along. Pull over. Hit the beach. It doesn’t matter where I am, really. Just beach. Just sand between my toes. Breezes and salt. Summer. Summer come soon!
