Artful Living -- up now at Starbucks

Living the progress in work ... and art. I've got another wall to show my stuff at Starbucks. Cheers! 

So - the work in progress so far this year has been to relocate from one home to another while sorting and sifting through the no longer necessary accumulation of flotsam... and that sounds so much easier in the saying. Thankfully, I have lots of distractions to keep it drama free.

Aside from the ghosts and other quirks, creating a new studio work-space has kept me busy. Now the art I had set aside for awhile is back on the front burner along with a backlog of projects related to that. While that sorts itself out, some of my pieces are now up at the Starbucks in Corporate Woods (Overland Park) through the month of April, 2016.

You may see some of my other work on the Wendy's Coffeehouse Art blog but I tend to post less there - so I am adding a few things here to update the work in progress.

Thank you for checking in --- a sample post from a couple of years ago --

Inspiration --

When you find the way
Others will find you
Passing by on the road
They will be drawn to your door
The way that cannot be heard
will be reflected in your voice
The way that cannot be seen
Will be reflected in your eyes
- Lao Tzu

Reflection --

And when indeed they find you
nothing need be said
You are no longer represented
as external projection.

In arriving, they see they have no reflection
as no thing here is real, simply a shadow of the One
-- a playing field where soul cavorts in creation
until the time comes to shift and rise up
to the next level of the charade.

When one finds himself
in a home he never left
he remembers to laugh
and honor the projection
of all-that-is illuminated in being and non-being.

Quietly resumed, the role of gatekeeper,
he stands at the ready
poised in perfect awareness
illuminated without knowing

the traveler in reflection.

Shows are daily at 9 pm central time

Conscious Living with Wendy Garrett is produced by Empower Radio and featured on empoweradio, iheart, itunes, stitcher and various independent youtube channels. Programs cover a wide range of Mind-Body-Spirit/Alternative Awareness/PSI topics, including: Consciousness, UFO, Metaphysics, Paranormal and Energy Medicine.

Ongoing personal experiences with extraordinary and unexplained seen/unseen phenomena underscore my belief in a world abundant with wonders we haven't yet begun to fathom.

Experiencers, via their unique encounters, give us glimpses and clues to what potentials creation has yet to reveal when we are willing to listen to the call of the muse and curious enough to table our fear and explore the unknown inner and outer limits of being.

And the answers are there, teasing us in quirks, quarks and fantastic anomalies.

My proof
- and that is the whole point of this reality thing being very personal and unique to the individual experiencer - the light beside me goes off for a moment and then comes on again as I am composing this introduction, underscoring the "quirk" factor and the representation of the ever-present, unseen support in this adventure.

Thank you for your interest and for listening. I hope you enjoy the shows! - wendy ... and the nightlights ;)
