My Traveling Shoes

Done found myself a new pair of travelin' shoes to wear on this leg of my journey. Handmade to fit and suit me just right, supportin' and comfortin' me each step of the way.They are wild and colorful as I chose them to be, they suit my personality.
I've traveled so many miles in shoes that someone else bought for me, plain, poorly fitted, worn, second hand, hand me downs. Ohh, they hurt my feet and took me places that I didn't need to go, places that I didn't want to go. For many years I put them on. I was told it was my duty, but my heart was heavy and my cares so many.

I own these shoes. They are mine.

Listening to Your Life



I painted this picture last summer. My husband, Jim and I were out late walking. We passed a line of trees that were facing the moon and it looked and felt like this painting. I called it a family of trees. In the past few years I have become more senstive to nature. There is someting very special about trees.

If we want to find out who we are and what we should be doing with our lives then we have to take the time to listen to our lives. What are we drawn to? What brings us life? What are our passions? Parker J. Palmer says " Our lives should be lived from the inside out, not the outside in." Sounds like good advice to me. As the days pass, I am seeking to listen to my life in order to know my path. Peace, jeanne leigh

I remember seeing this over a year ago. I can't believe I am just making it back here.
