"Awake" - poem under "Lifting You Up" poetry series http://liftingyouup.blogspot.com/2012/06/awake.html,
Scene - Hawaii (with a special thanks to my friend who shares her wonderful photographs with me).
Yoga Series: Tree Pose
This painting features the yoga "Tree Pose" with outstretched arms. It represents the need for maintaining balance in our lives. Using our focus techniques, we can travel to the beaches of Hawaii on our own meditative vacation. The noon sun makes us feel alive and "Awake!" We are refreshed and ready to face the day with all it holds for us.
Poem, "Waiting Quietly" found under My Songs of Comfort Series Poems:
Yoga Series: Yoga Studio
By putting yoga into our everyday lives, we learn to appreciate something as simple as "Waiting Quietly." The woman holding this yoga sitting posture is at ease in her flexibility. Her mind is free to let thoughts drift in and out as she reflects on her day. As she enjoys the quiet moment, her thinking sends images from home which now appear in the yoga studio with her, surrounding her in comfort.
The woman in this painting is finding renewed strength in the peaceful mountain setting.

Yoga Series: Child's Pose
This restful pose (Child’s Pose) reminds us the importance of renewing ourselves from the inside out. Our yoga music takes us to the NC mountains near a restful waterfall where we hear the birds soar. We can invision the morning sun rising again through the mist to reset our day. By first giving in to the need for rest, we trust that our respite will give us new strength.

When Jenny was little, she drew a picture of the family and then drew a big heart around it. She called it a "Love Heart."
