Written Thoughts are unlocked Treasures of the mind…

A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home.
I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.
Even though outside it was another cloudy, chilly, rainy day, inside my craft room it was sunny, warm and cheerful!
My grand-daughter came over this afternoon to participate in another art collaboration project with me and we had so much fun sharing ideas, chatting and creating. She inspired me, as I did her and we both ended up with projects we were really happy with!
Today I enjoyed myself as I created this art piece which I titled “Happy Mail”.
It is an art collaboration project that I and another artist did as part of the USPS Art Project, which is a project many artists across the USA are doing to help fund the struggling US Postal Service.
I think it turned out quite cheerful looking and is something I actually try to live out daily in my life as I interact with people I meet.
These last few days have really been hot here in my area, 100 degree days. It’s pretty hot but I am not complaining because I remember how long it took for our weather to warm up and how many chilly days we had to endure waiting for this summer weather.
So I am just doing my best to stay fairly cool and enjoy it while it lasts because summer will be gone before long!
This poem was inspired by an incident I had the other day as I was creating art.
I needed to see deep down into a vase I was using, and since my iPhone was in my pocket I remembered it had a built in flashlight option which I could easily flip on to shine light down into the vase and reveal what, if anything, might be inside.
This experience reminded me that I should always be ready to be a light bearer whenever and wherever needed.
