    good morning darlin! that house looks like it’s going to take off like a bottle rocket into the sky — now what a view that would be! i love your elevator house and your new header!

  5. Kim Mailhot says:

    I love this !
    So sweet and true and beautiful.
    I don’t think we need an elevator to see the great view of ourselves though, we just need to look up…At least that is what my Mommy-Guru says. πŸ˜‰
    Happy Monday, Magnificent Rachel.

  6. Mary says:

    oh yeah, often times we need to see from a different perspective don’t we…

    xxoo

  7. love this, rachel. sometimes i need one of those elevator views to remind me there’s every color of the rainbow in me, too. ADORE your new header, too! xoxo

    Yes, stepping out of our familiar circle and looking from above often lets us understand things clarified – more clear – more understandable – defined, filtered…

    Wouldn’t it be great if we all had such an elevator on hand? I think we all must get one as soon as possible.

    You’re adored, my friend.

    magical healing thoughts Rachel…I think perhaps it is an escalator you are looking for…you ride it silently upon your breath, straight to your own heart:-)

  17. patrice says:

    You amaze me dear friend. If you ever need a reminder of a great view of you… please call me… I will tell you what i have seen…. BEAUTY.

  26. Hey there Dear Heart,
    I just crawled out from under my creative rock to come and get
    some encouragement and to be uplifted by Ms. Rachel he hehe he he! This place is a place of healing and rest for me. How are you? I know that it’s been super long, but our relocation has been full of drama!!!
    All is well though and I have to tell you that I love Charlotte, NC. Wish I had done this sooner. I love your elevator. It is a soul lifter!
    Thanks so much
    Shalom

    I have missed your creative mind and art while on my blog break. I have morned my ability to feel creative these past few months, but I think it is returning, with the Lords help…even in the midst of the storm.
