Sacred Animal Songs by Zoe Ann Nishimuta

Do you have a favorite animal? A sacred animal you relate to strongly? I do. One of my favorites is the squirrel. It reminds me to balance my energy and be playful. 

I don't remember anymore when I came across the beautiful, soft, cute and heartwarming Sacred Animal Songs of Zoe. I know it was years ago. 

I was touched by the images and lyrics right away. There is so much beauty in it's simplicity that tells about the joy of the animals and nature. She creates Sacred Animal Songs and creates beautiful art of the animals. 

I asked Zoe what her latest favorite was and she liked to share the Sun Bear Song with us:

Sun Bear Song

O Bear

Sun Bear

High up in the tree

Digging for honey

The magic sunrise on your chest

helps us to see the best

and brightest within everything

and this is the song we sing

For years Zoe mailed a daily message called the Turtle Path. She now sends out the Golden Turtle Path once in a while. Her messages are a bright light of simple joy and wonder. 

I was happy when I won a copy of her Sacred Animal Songbook a couple of weeks ago!

The cover is really cool with all kind of different sacred animals on it. Inside you find the lyrics and notes of different songs she wrote. So you can play it on your piano, flute or any other instrument and sing the songs. It's nice to play with it with children and let them choose their favorite for the day, or to just explore the songs together. It's also fun for innerchildren, as we all might have a Sacred Animal we relate to strongly. Every animal reflects something for us that can make our daily lives more fun.

You can buy the Sacred Animal Songbook here:

You can visit her cool website and explore the world of the Sacred Animal Songs here: http://theturtlepath.com/  I really love the design of the site also.

Thanks Zoe for sharing your inspiration with the world!

Rainbows are the Essence of Art

One color contains beauty. All the colors are like candy. Enriching each other with their flavor and pigment. 
Catching and reflecting different rays. So beautiful. So special. So much beauty.

The miracle of glitter

It was a great weekend. I reorganized my creative play space, to make room for my new art supplies, canvas and easel. I am expecting my easel tommorrow or the day after that. I will be on the look out for the mail man.

 The fun of cleaning and organizing in such a chaotic place as my play space is finding old treasures. Items, toys, objects I collected over the years and are getting a new space.

Meet this purple my little pony. It stands in the land of a new painting that I'm working on for weeks now. Usually I work much faster but this one is very big. It gives me a happy feeling knowing I can finish it on my new easel. One of the coolest gifts I ever got.

Wondering how organized chaos looks like? Well this is what I look at when I work at my desk:

In the aqua box I collect all my cards and beautiful paper with awesome patterns and graphics. I'm working on a fun project: creating treasure envelopes with nice cards and little gifts in it.
In the little teabox on the right  at the top I collect all my small cards and little papers. You see a pile of my favorite cd's that I listen to when I work on the left. I still have some organizing to do.

And you find a level of glitter, ink, stamps and all kind of fun little tools like gouges etc. Below that you will find crayon, more crayon, pencils, water paint, charcoal, etc. I just need everything in my eye sight so I can get it right away when I have inspiration.

This is my desk. My other tools and paint and toys etc are in the rainbow closet and on my side table that I use when I paint. I will share more of my play space later!

Today was a really great day. I think fall and spring are my most creative seasons. I'm happy that it's fall! Reorganizing creates space in my mind also. Which I need very badly at the moment. I take new steps every day and in my creative work I can set the energy for my dreams, so that miracles will happen in an instant.

See, glitter is one of the key elements of the miracles in my life!

My paintings are telling me exactly what I need, which optional roads are open and what could happen. It allows me to play with all potentials and choose. I always choose glitter. It's the unexpected fun factor that makes life so adventurous.

I choose life, love and fun!
