    Sure wish I could doodle silence the way you do…♥

  10. oh yes.
    a yes stepping so soft
    and light
    across the air
    that you can hear the
    vivid greens and oranges
    swirling and breezing about
    unearthly quiet
    inside every bit of yes-ness:)
    (my heart went the sweetest
    sort of still when I saw
    and soaked up your silence art)
    glad and grateful thanks,

    I hugged a tree this week myself. I wonder if hugging a blade of grass is like hugging a tree in miniature. Maybe.

  12. Jenny Blair says:

    heehee…love you and your silent grass hugging-ness. Huge hugs xx

    I LOVE silence…it lets me listen and be. Love your work!

  14. I also enjoy allowing the comfort of silence to embrace me. And it’s interesting to me how going within can broaden our perspectives.

  15. I need silence every once in a while. It keeps me recharge and relax. Its better than massages or any pampering.

  17. it feels so good to come here Rachel. next time i feel small in this world i’ll remember the blade of grass…

    I’m having a love affair with silence at the moment – it is just the most wonderful treasure.

    just home from a 2 week road trip with my kids…dreaming of silence at the beach and in my heart (but first, we have visitors 🙂

    I adore this and you.

    Small things that are big…


    Like a baby’s gurgle, a child playing with her doll, the first time you ride a train…

  23. Aww, this one is just perfect so adorable and the sentiments are great. So sweet.
