Linda OefflingLinda Oeffling, from my spring garden

* Take the time to remember the gifts in your life – treat yourself

* Embrace forgiveness – it will result in healing

* Treat your mind to a rest, the same as when you treat your body to a rest. Read something just for pleasure. Look outside at the world around you and notice the beauty in small things.  Watch a child and remember how they see the world with wonder.

What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter – a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.
Henri Matisse
