Well, today I am posting a new painting I did inspired by a hike to Willard Mountain in New Hampshire. It was a beautiful day and my first real hike to an actual peak. It was tough, it really showed me how out of shape I really was and still am. But, it was a moment I will never forget, something I never dreamed I would do! With much struggle and some real effort I did make it to the top, and even got coaxed into going to the edge of the cliff. I will never forget that day!

On our way to the top I saw a tree. It was a funny tree. When I first saw it, from the angle I was at it looked like it had a nose. Once I started walking around it, I realized it had a crooked branch sticking out of it, and from the side you could not see it, it just looked like a big nose. I was so inspired that I decided to paint a picture of that tree, to remember my trip there. The picture of the painting is the picture on here today, and once I get my PC back and up I will put it up with the painting so you can see them together. For now, you will have to just imagine the tree I saw that day. The painting is more reflective of a Van Gogh style painting so it will not reflect the actual picture.

Okay, so far I don’t have my lottery check, still waiting! I did look for work today and found one I felt was promising. Last Friday, I had a black out and ended up in the ER. Rough night, was given time off of work and my boss was not happy. She took me off the schedule immediately and as of today has not put me back on it again. Times sure have changed. The days of people being empathetic and kind or concerned seems to be rare anymore. I was shocked to say the least. So, now I have to make a new plan and create a new income! As always I wait for my art to start selling and for other financial opportunities to come my way (looking of course).

Today, is a day to draw, and devise a plan for tomorrow. Part one will be going to the hospital to check on my paperwork and see if I qualify for assistance with the bill. Also, hoping to make a run for the unemployment office as well to see if I can salvage some kind of an income from there as well. Hopefully with some good luck in my favor the job I applied for today will call me and hire me. Mostly, it would be great if they are good folks to work for. It would be a nice change of pace, and I can only hope that since they are in the business of healthcare, that they have more compassion then my last few employers!

Sending my love to you and yours as always, hope you had a great holiday, whichever you celebrate, and if you don’t I still hope you enjoyed the season. We finally are reaching the dawning of a new year. I for one am very excited to see what it will bring! Lots of love to you, diana

Manifesting My Life!

This week has brought about some really eye opening thoughts and feelings for me. I apologize for being away, I needed this time to get myself together. So much has happened to me in my life, and much of it wasn’t good. To be fair, this is not about bad situations, it is about rising above them, climbing past the, and finding myself in a world of dreams and happiness! It has been difficult at times to stay in a positive place, and I haven’y always succeeded, but I do persevere. This has been one of those times in my life. Slowly though, like some turning my head gently to the side, so I can see clearly, I begin to see my future.

Today, I woke up realizing, that all will be well, and all will be better than I can even imagine. Once again, I am refocusing on all my dreams. Slowly things have begun to change. I wanted a new car, I am getting it very soon, in the next day or so., It isn’t some show room new car, it is new to me and the beginning of a newer car to come. I wanted a break from work, a mini vacation, and got it by ending up in an E.R. My boss got mad that I needed a couple of days to re cooperate, and took me off the schedule for a week. Not the way I imagined it, lol, but arrived non the less. So now I am working on bringing money my way, and the wish should arrive soon! Maybe in the form of a big lottery check! That would be great!

All and all, life is in a good place, so many changes on the way, and in my heart I know they will all be good ones. My dreams manifesting themselves into my reality. This is what I dream for and wake for everyday. The potential, to bring magic into my life, and experience everything I always wanted. I smile at the thought of my new cars, new homes, vacations, travel, art galleries, art studios, and all the things I can do to give back. I want to help children with illness, use my art to cheer them and sell my art to heal them! I want to spend my money and time to help clean up the planet, especially for the oceans and all the sea life, that is depending on us to survive! I fill myself with these thoughts for the day, and wish for the ability to do it all and more!

So, as of yet, my lottery check is not here. But, I am sure it is on it’s way to me, now even as I type this. I know that all the worries I have are silly and a waste of time. he time serves me better, by realizing it is only in this minute, that things seem of course, that tomorrow or the next minute all will be at peace again. I have to believe it, wish it, envision it, taste it and feel it! Once I do, it is already here! Wishing you all the best for this holiday season and even more now at the end of this year, and the brink of a new year. The year of plenty, and the year of all possibilities, that is what I am claiming for me! So, whether I am working or not, whether I am at home or not. On this new year I am making a wish for m=not one or even two, I am wishing for all my dreams to come true, I also send that same wish for you and anyone else that needs it.

Sending my love to you and yours, as always, diana

Snow For Christmas!

Snow For Christmas!.

Snow For Christmas!

Well, today was a wonder to behold. Here in New Hampshire we woke up to snow! Not that the weather wasn’t predicted,  but strange when you consider the weather yesterday. All day yesterday, it was like spring outside. The sun was out, bright and clear, the temperatures were mild. It really reminded me of the weather when I first arrived here in Late March. A light jacket is all you needed to enjoy the day. Then Some time over night the temperature dropped and so did the snow. Already with daylight, and the sun shining in the sky, the snow is starting to melt. But, the vision of that beautiful snow, unmarred by people, first thing in the morning, brings a smile to my face. Already it is feeling more like Christmas!

Okay, so now some quick updates, I am sure you are aware that I am an artist. If not, you will be familiar with that idea now. So,, for those of you who do follow me and my art, I do have a new painting to share with you. This is a painting I finished about a month ago. Maybe two now, just before I moved to my new address, it is a giraffe, felt in the mood to see Africa, SO, I decided to create a little of it for myself. If you are interested in any way to purchase it, or to see the prices, please follow the links enclosed to go to one of my shops or Facebook to contact me. I will be sharing a couple more in the next couple of days, as well as some photos of a few more hiking pictures, to help those of you not familiar with New Hampshire to see the beauty surrounding us here! Hope you enjoy them all.

It seems, one prayer of mine has been answered and I will be driving a new car. Not new, as in off the showroom floor, but new as in, new to me. This is a great relief off of my mind for sure. So, Merry Christmas to me, and to the givers of this wonderful gift, and to you as well and those you love. I hope you  are having a wonderful Holiday Season, no matter, what holiday you celebrate, if any. No matter, wishing you lots of happiness, and blessings of every kind.

Now, also a quick update on the lottery horizon. Just to say, that my dream of winning the lottery this year, hes not come to pass, just yet. I am confident that one day soon, the message on here will be a joyous one. I can’t wait! Sending you lots of love, for yourself and all those you care about. Wishing you end this year with a smile and a life full. Full of blessings, love, joy, peace and happiness for all! Enough for today, and see you soon, diana

Back To Beginnings!

Having a great day! Just got in from another sunset hike. No mountains to climb today, just mountains to photograph! Anyway, we went off to the White River Trail, in or around Ossippee, New Hampshire. We had a wonderful time, lots of really get stop offs from the trail to take photos, from many angles of the mountains. It was a perfect day in so many respects, the sky was generally clear a few patchy clouds, great for picking up some beautiful colors for the sunset. The temperature was in the forties, with only a hint of a breeze. So very comfortable to hike in, the ground in most areas was really dry and in some spots even frozen. Though there were a few spots, where the ground was wet and soggy, these areas were easy to get around or side step.

Wondering through the trees, and watching the sky change all around me was memorizing, I was walking along, feeling overwhelmed, by the colors of the sky and the lake, the more I walked the more at peace I felt. The one thing I got from this day, was a reassuring calm, brought on by the fact that my life in so many ways, has traveled around full circle. The last time I was this at peace with who I am and where I was going was before I head out to start my life in Florida. Just a teenager at the time, but spending all my free time, hiking through trails in the woods, talking to my friends, enjoying nature and the universe around me. Always aware the I was so small and insignificant, but at the same time the opposite, so important and necessary to the whole picture! I feel filled with awe and peace, joy and contentment, love and wonder, and a surety that I am exactly where I am meant to be, right now.

So many new ideas, and so many old ones, all merging and converging into a hazy, but definite picture. From where I sit, it is looking good too! I feel like, I am waking from a long dream, some of it glorious, and some of it treacherous, but all of it brought me right back to the beginning. A little older, definitely wiser and happier than ever! Sending you and your families all kinds of love and joy for this special holiday season this year. Please do enjoy the pictures from today’s  hike. Wishing you all the best. Love….diana

PS. Haven’t got that winning lottery ticket just yet, but keep your eyes peeled, you will hear from me soon with the good news!
