Most Alive Monday: Wonders (and a Prize)
It was a great day for bubbles and so I dragged out every bubble making device we had including a set by the great Fan Yang that Satchel's Grands sent, the bubble thing, and my old fave (the multi-bubbler by Pustefix of Denmark) that my talented friend, Fanchon Lavigne (a kind and gentle spirit, a photographer and large format print specialist ), gave to me many MANY years ago.
Little did I know back then, that I would one day have a son who would love bubbles as much as I.
How his squeals of joy make my heart leap!
I'm so inspired lately...by Satch, by the season and by so many mamas that are lighting the way. Ginger Carlson of The Wondershop sent me a copy of her new book, "Child of Wonder" and I am deeply moved by it. It's a book that explores and celebrates play, discovery, creativity and imagination. You'll be hearing from Ginger in an upcoming Mom to Mom interview.
And because giving is another thing that makes me feel most alive...I would like to give away a signed copy of her book. Simply share a wondrous word or two (something that moved you this week - a quote, a moment etc.) in the comment section of this post by midnight on Sunday and my little wonder child will pick a name at random to be posted NEXT Monday morning. *Also please let me know how to contact you for your snail mail address.
Listen to presences inside poems,
Let them take you where they will.
Follow those private hints,
and never leave the premises. -Rumi
*About Most Alive Monday: I've decided to make at least one "most alive choice" each day and post my favorite each Monday. This, of course, is to motivate me to consciously "live juicy"! I hope you'll join me and share your "most alive moment" in the comments section so we may inspire each other.
You may also post photos of your "most alive moments" in my most alive flickr pool! (If you post a photo in pool, be sure to include your link in the comment)
