Dear Friends, Drodzy Przyjaciele, Cari Amici,
This week I had the opportunity to go to Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes in North America. It was my second time to the North Shore of that amazing body of water and I was thrilled and so refreshed by the beauty of it. I also went to a place called Gooseberry Falls that is just a bit further north of where I stayed in Duluth, MN. I have a new camera and as I find and capture beauty, I will share it here on this blog. This photo I took from up on a bridge, looking straight at a spot where the water was crashing down on to the rocks: I imagined it to be like Gods Love, cascading with such strength and commitment into our world, into each of our souls:
As I stood at these Falls, I offered my gratitude to God and the whole Universe for such power, such beauty and that I was able to witness. After many years of serious and deep inner work to unburden myself of dark and sad and painful abuses and wounding, and eventually reacquiring the ability to enjoy and embrace life, it feels like this is the time of my life when I am going to be inundated with cascading joy and refreshment!
And so I offered my heart to this waterfall and I experienced a liberation that comes with welcoming Gods love to flow and overflow in my own journey, even as the waterfall mirrored to me.
I wish you all a happy and beautiful and healthy summer and much joy in every aspect of your life.
With my Gift from the Heart, Z moim Dar z Serca, Con il mio Dono dal Cuore,

* For those of you who may not know, I have published a series of three books that tell the story of my recovery and healing from profoundly intense physical, sexual and spiritual abuse. These books have dozens of paintings that I did during my process and those paintings are a core form of communication I used in my Healing. These books are available on Amazon. I hope you will read them and pass them on to others! This White House (Book One), Going Sane (Book Two) and A Spectacular Dawn (Book Three)
