delicious transformation

One of my favorite things  ~ opening the tumbler and sorting out the fresh batch of treasures ~ and always a nice way to start my morning.  Delicious anticipation and delicious transformation.  I am never not amazed at the finished components and their amazing transformation from clay to fine silver - after all these years, a wonderful thing for sure.  My fresh batch of lovelies ...

Ever one to go on word association journeys, this morning I've gone from transformation to catalyst,  thinking back on my own on-going evolution, thinking about what have been the catalysts along the way.  Through the years, these catalysts tend to be either people or places and once the lessons have been learned, the new awareness firmly absorbed and assimilated into this body and mind, it's time to move on.  Washington state has proved to be a powerful catalyst in my life.  For some reason, living in the Pacific Northwest is like jumping on a bullet train for transformation, for Dave and I both, and probably why it seems that Asheville is so slow.

Turns out Provence was another such catalyst.  Looking at my little pile of lovelies, the influence is quite tangible.  I worry that the Provencal spell will wear off, but now I'm thinking the magic of that place has been absorbed and assimilated and has established permanent residence in my psyche.  I'm thinking, yes!

So in anticipation of the catalysts to come and paths unknown, today's Abraham quote seems very timely ...

We would begin saying, "I'm not ever going to get it done. I'm an eternally expanding Being, and I'm doing great where I am, and I'm so eager about what's coming." That's the essence of the vibration that keeps adventurous things coming, keeps you feeling always excited, stable and secure, keeps you feeling in love with life. All day, every day, count your blessings! All day, every day, make your lists of things you appreciate. And as you keep activating what is working in your life, then more pleasing things on all subjects will flow to you.
