Dr E Alana James is reinventing herself again! Coming full circle to the first love of her life - art - and bringing back to her images all the lessons of her life as author, researcher, academic and wife. Concerned mostly with the idea of images as vehicles for expression of the truth of our inner and outer life experience.

A bit of a story here…

It starts with Deepak and Oprah’s 21-day meditation on “Losing the weight” – not just physical weight but the weighty responses to life. As I wrote in the last post, control issues are part of that weight for me. Then, a few days ago, Deepak suggested that we all think about the main goals/energies/focus for our lives as we imagine them to be in our dreams – his focused on transcendence.  Mine are JOY – WONDER – LOVE – GROWTH

Today he continued the journey with a story about two men who show up for their flight at the airport – the flight is cancelled.  One throws a fit and the other goes to the bookstore and gets engrossed in a new book.  What struck out to me was his comment that at any given moment we can say – here is me …. (throwing a fit) and I have a choice to (read a book).  I have taken it a step forward today and have been having great fun with –

Here is me enjoying wonder in the yellows of the daffodils.  Here is me experiencing the wind on my cheek.  Here is me experiencing a loving conversation with Tracesea.

So I send this energy out – what are you experiencing?  Can I keep these for words and my experience of them as upper most in my mind?  Yes of course – we all can.
