love in all you do -

mjd 2015 - wip, custom order - make with love

part of the design decision for this bowl was how to integrate the heart. cut it out? set it cleanly? allow it to begin to melt?

it set me off to thinking about how we make, do, live. does it all come from love or is it something you have to mindfully apply -

ideally, with an open heart everything is set with an intention of love. it is not an added bonus but rather an inextricable part of our thoughts, words and actions. in the beginning, we might need to remind ourselves of this. but like any other habit, with repetition and attention, it becomes second nature. love is entering and leaving you with each breath and through that membrane of physical body that separates us from each other. 

we can pick up on each other's energies - fear and anger are very easy to sense. they are heavy. joy is lighter. love is any myriad of sensations - it depends upon how you can receive it and how it is offered. 

i think that at its best, love is gentle and grounding. but that's me. 

------------------

anything we make
anything we do
should involve love 
as a part of it. 

integral to the meaning
to the intention
and 
coming from the very same 
material
be it blood & sweat
or
brass & sterling.

you cannot merely add love
on afterwards
like sprinkles
on a cupcake.
it's either there
or
it isn't. 

come from a place of love
and all you do
say and think
will be infused,
spreading that which
the world most needs.

mjd 2015 - offering bowl

there is no where else to go
there is no one else to be

you are home.

there is no treasure hunt 
to find yourself -
you are already
an inextinguishable light.

learn to be
grow quiet
dig in

right here
right now.

know that all you need 
to find inner peace
already exists within you.

just for now

mjd 2015 - dusk 


because just for now

as one orb rises and the other falls
dusk feels safer than dawn.

the days feel too demanding
they are not being viewed 
with the optimistic spin
of opportunity.

just for now.

instead of waging war 
against feelings
they are being accepted -

for now.

because that of which i am most sure
is that everything changes 
from now
until then
to

now.
