Updates and Thoughts
This is a 6" x 6" oil painting on canvas panel titled "The Perch". It is part of my ongoing exploration into the little brown bird. Available through my Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/GeniseParkArts. Enjoy
With a Full moon on Sunday March 16th, it is time to put into motion those heartfelt prayers for spring. As we have made our way through winter, we leave behind those thoughts, feelings and emotions that no longer serve us. Spring is a time for new growth in all areas of our lives. Use this full moon to amplify those those thoughts and feelings that will serve you well and others well. It is time for us to dream our world into being, creating what we want to see in the world with our thoughts and prayers.
Winter Solstice is here in the Northern Hemisphere/Summer Solstice for the Southern Hemisphere. This is the longest night for the Northern Hemisphere/longest day for the Southern Hemisphere. In the north, the Sun now turns on December 21 and slowly begins to regain power and increase life-giving light.
In the Northern Hemisphere, ceremony and celebration are practiced as the light of the Sun returns once again. We show gratitude and appreciation in ritual ceremony with candles, despacho (prayer bundle), drumming, singing, gifting and story telling.
While in the Southern Hemisphere, gratitude for the abundance, fertility, and pleasures at the fullness of Summer is marked as the Sun slowly begins to wane in strength.
Take a moment and show your gratitude to our beautiful Sun and may your path be forever illuminated by the Sun and your heart.
