"Go play, explore, twirl, skip, climb. Pick flowers.
Watch the clouds passing lazily overhead.
Listen to the breeze. Feel the sun on your skin.
Enjoy this moment... this one. Right here.
The one you can reach out and touch with your finger right this very second.
It will never pass by you again.
Be wonderful, entrancing, radiant, glowing, happy, and light.
And enjoy it."
These are the kinds of poetic and inspiring entries you will read in
Ingrid Murray's blog, My Peace Tree.
It is a fusion of art journal, photography and everything in between.
Open, real, brave, expressive and honest.
It is a look inside an artist who is brave enough to let you see
her personal self-discovery journey, her vision through photographs and collages,
the life lessons she learns, her grateful heart and simple joys.
Are you gentle with yourself, or are you setting yourself up
to impossible standards, like me?
Be assured that you are, no matter what, a beautiful, unique,
incredible soul and who is so, so loved.
You are so very important to this world, as perfectly imperfect as you are!"
She is currently teaching a class called,
Beautiful You, Radiant You.
