look who just moved in!

look what's inside a package i received today!  look....


i took a moment of silence when i saw it. ria has sent me wise, the original 24" x 24" painting.  she presented me her treasure, just like that.  then i read her note....   

i wasn't overwhelmed with her gesture.  it's a state of existence i very well understood, we found ourselves another kindred spirit, no further explanations needed.

some people come into our lives
and leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never ever the same

some people come into our lives
and quickly go...some stay for a while
and embrace our silent dreams

they help us become aware
of the delicate winds of hope...
and we discover within every human spirit
there are wings yearning to fly

they help our hearts to see that
the only stairway to the stars
is woven with dreams...
and we find ourselves
unafraid to reach high

they celebrate the true essence
of who we are...
and have faith in all
that we may become

some people awaken us
to new and deeper realizations...
for we gain insight
from the passing whisper of their wisdom

throughout our lives we are sent
precious souls...
meant to share our journey
however brief or lasting their stay
they remind us why we are here

to love

some people come into our lives
to cast a steady light
upon our path and guide our every step
their shining belief in us
helps us to believe in ourselves

some people come into our
lives to teach us about love...
the love that rests within ourselves

let us reach out to others
and feel the bliss of giving
for love is far richer in action
than it ever is in words

some people come into our lives
and they move our souls to sing
and make our spirits dance

they help us to see that everything on earth
is part of the incredibility of life...
and that it is always there
for us to take of its joy

some people come into our lives
and leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never ever the same 

~ some people by flavia weedn  she remembers that i have asked her about the canvas she used in her "life artist" class and sent me some as well.

i have said that i wanted to win a blog giveaways so much that i'm willing to send more in return...hahaa....  today i have won 10x over and like i told ria, today i could go win a trojan war.


to the many, ria nirwana is the indonesian pioneer of scrapbooking as we know it today.  i first met her a few years ago when she opened her scrapbooking shop in jakarta.  i reconnected with her recently when i picked up the passion again and joined her "our journey" class where i took the pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies in the scrapbooking community she has built over the years.  ria has so much passion to what she does and her level of energy in doing so never cease to amaze me.  if you're local and haven't already joined her class, you should!

now i'm going to watch nadal beats murray...vamos rafa!
