Here’s to the close of 2011!
I’m a long-time fan of Mr. Fred Rogers of the PBS series, Mister Roger’s Neighborhood. My good friend and neighbor gifted me with a book of his quotes for Christmas (thank you, Jen!). Even though it’s been years since I’ve seen a video episode displaying his magical, yet subtle educational ways, his words brought back many peaceful thoughts and good memories.
The quote I used in my design above caught my eye, so I’m sharing it with you as we enter this powerful year of 2012.
I like imagery of love as infinity. Endless. Infinite. I also sometimes think of love as a river, I can dip my toes in anytime, I can drink from it, and I can funnel that river of love to anyone in my midst. We all can. I believe this to be true.
In fact, I’m passing love to you as you read this, can you feel it?
While I’m not a “resolutionista” — I do enjoy setting an intention for the year to come. As 2012 breaks through the coming dawn, I will do all I can to live my life with the intention of love and basing my actions from a loving place.
I wish you all the best for the coming year and thank you for taking the time to read my words, always. Feel free to say hello in the comments, I’ve missed y’all.
About the design above, I photographed my lovely engraved stone sitting atop an imprinted journal I recently purchased. I then imported the image to my Mac and used Photoshop to apply a filter, then Illustrator to adjust the opacity, add the outerglow, background, colormatching, and text layer. If you’re intersted, here’s the original photo (below).
Much Love, Namasté,
