Cherry Tomatoes and Walking Meditation

Hi, I finished my "Cherry Tomatoes". Just now. I used negative painting and especially like the left hand side of the painting where the vines are together and going up.This is my tomato plant and my tomatoes and some of Mamie's'. I did the little pear painting earlier this week as a demo for a student.

Well this week I've gone to the blueberry farm in Hacksneck.Va. and picked blueberries and Asian pears. They are delicious and lovely too I couldn't help but notice the plums at the farm are gorgeous, deep blues and purples.. but they aren't ripe yet.. so no picking. On the way home we stopped and had iced coffee at The Bear and Cub Coffee Shop in Pungoteague.

Here is a Walking Meditation.. I thought you might like.
Take deep slow breaths and read while walking slowly. It's beautiful.. you can do while walking the dogs or just on your own, look at God's beauty around you as you walk--Enjoy..

Walk and Touch Peace every moment
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
When we feel safe in ourselves.

Thich Nhat Hanh (author) -- Kiss the Earth
