The Gift, Singleton 2008 Hippie Art

The Gift
(c) Singleton 2008
SOLD

Little signs,
yellow wings,
forgotten songs,
martini moons,
stacking,
unfolding like perfect paper dolls
and landing,
dancing,
at my feet.....
bread crumbs in the forest...

"This way"......
And I almost didn't go,
weary of the whisper on my neck....
"This way"....
a little louder,
a Stevie Ray Vaughn
lull~a~bye
slowly
gently
rocking my world.

And then I knew.

Door number one.
Two.
Three.

"This way".....
I walked around them all
and there,
where it had been all
along was

The Gift....

Choose Peace,
and
ride with me.....

Such a powerful sound. push past all those doors, they all lead in and out anyway & sometimes we don't want in or out... we just want to go away... even if 'away' is really going home.

Etch the words into the fabric of the sky my sister...

God knows We need to hear them

"Choose peace"

You are The gift which the world needs to recognise,
to open
to cherish...

Thank you (how much those two little words contain)

All my love, M

ibeati...And forever more friend....

Babs...pass it on girlfriend, share the gift.....Choose Peace!

Sweet SLB....Yes, and home is where the peace is, until then they're just cardboard houses. I love you, sweet girl, standing right here, beside you, behind you, one footprint ahead, heading home....

Deli....me, too, and then I realized.....they've been there all along, I just forgot to "see".... And the dance goes on.....

Maithri....Can I tell you how many times I've spoken your name out loud in the last several days to Skinny, Kimbies, friends, strangers.....Can I tell you how much I believe that The Girl in the Cafe knew a truth I read in high school....
I've never forgotten the quote, but can't remember the name of the book or the author, God bless him.....
"Just keep on doing it your way, and sooner or later, they'll all think you're doing it their way"...

We can't give up.....

Peace~love my friends
Choose them both.......

...as I let out a big sigh, I must tell you, your artwork leaves me breathless! Another beauty has captured my heart~ I would love to add her to our collection. I'm ready when you are. Just say "Yes"
These drawings and words are a window into your beautiful soul...
I am so glad I followed that yellow butterfly many martini moons ago~
You are The Gift to me, and to many others as I can see.
Peace and Love to you my sweet soulful sista~

C~ Last night there was an incredible Martini Moon, the blue circle of the full, and just the tiniest yellow sliver of the martini glass at the bottom. I stood under the sky for the longest time, smiling, remembering the night one year ago....when I named her that. Remembering the why. The magic. Tinking the past, and clinking the future. It waits. I say that in the perfect sky that blanketed today through the night.

And she's yours, of course, my friend, the Keeper of the secrets, the wishes, the stories, the pages as they unfold. Wishing you and yours peace~love, and I'll ship soon, I promise!
