What Is True For Today

Here is what I find true for today:

It shocks people when I laugh loud.

You never know when and where healing will occur.

Hot Tamale candies don't make a good dinner.

And although the past is not where we should linger, sometimes we need to escape for a wee bit in a box of old photos.

Oh, My Beloved, Kindness of the heart,
Breathe of Life, I bow to you.

Divine Teacher.

Beloved Friend.

I bow to you...again and again.

-Ong Namo by Snatam Kaur from the album Grace.

Artwork - I found this today in a drawer. I remember drawing this picture at age 4 or 5. We had an old rotary telephone my mom let us play with. I would screw off the receiver ear cover and trace it to make perfect, circular heads.

Tomorrow I will answer some of the questions about my artwork: why the curvy necks, and if my art is for sale.


  1. Im just in love with your blog, so glad I found it... peace

  2. hey jenny stevning! cool drawing and a cool story to open it out!! the past tells stories that make the stories were writing make a little more sense in the future. have a peaceful evening. steven

  3. Wonderful. I look forward to it!

  4. You simply have no idea of the inspiration I draw from this. I am only discovering some opportunities of ART for myself just now, but my daughter...she is thriving.

    She recently used the bottom of a bell to make her circles for her drawing. Thought it up, all on her own with no urging from Mommy. Delightful this was for me.

    She has a picture she has recently drawn I plan to post on my blog, but I actually wanted to share it with you because of how she constructed the flower. Would you mind if I emailed it to you? I just think you'd appreciate the flower.

  5. Yes, please email it to me. My email is on my profile page. I can't wait to see it!

  6. Oh Jenny, today I am clinging to "You never know when and where healing will occur."
