The Heart of the Matter

Listen_p1Judy Garland once said, “For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.”

Looking back on Valentine’s Day at some of the many globes we’ve made that have love in every shake and glitter.

Truly Madly Deeply

Oh, the irony! When your feels are so true and deep, and yet so murky and muddled.Β  When certainty and doubt dance together. When your highs are sparkly iridescence and your lows … your lows are both sweet and dark, swirling the abyss, the edge of madness, the whisper of bliss.

But what do we really know, other than what we touch and feel? There’s a little madness in those deep feelings, the mix of crazy and joy that says “trust this, it will take you places.”

Then a moment of clarity: Truly Madly Deeply.

“Truly Madly Deeply” is a one of a kind snow/sparkle globe with hand-beaded and embellished golden glass heart, stationed resolutely and firmly in a swirl of liquid, sparkling with pewter, gold and platinum-colored microdust and shimmering metallic glitter.

Always …

Sometimes you just know: Always.

Wish Upon a Star

When you wish upon a star,

makes no difference who you are,

anything your heart desires,

will come to you.

Fate Loves the Fearless

It was just a phrase in a magazine artiFate Loves the Fearless flying turtle snow globe Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Coloradocle, reading casually, waiting for my hair to be cut.

“Fate loves the fearless.”

I wish I could remember who said it and in what context, but I’ve lost the source.

The phrase stayed with me, reminding of some other words to live by, including “You miss every shot you don’t take, ” attributed to Wayne Gretsky.

Why a turtle? I don’t know: Perhaps the gentle sea turtle always appears to be flying and I took it one step farther, with a couple taking a leap of faith together, fearless and bold, holding on for the exciting ride ahead.

“Fate Loves the Fearless.” Ah, yes it does.
