For the Love of a Good Cup of Coffee

When Did Coffee Get So Complicated??????????
It's a good idea to keep an open mind when you go to the coffee shop...or you will get confused with all the choices.
Sometimes ordering can get complicated....Espresso, latte, hot, iced, .........
I just want a hot cup of coffee...not a cafe breve, or expresso com panna for $5.00!!!!!
Better Together Mug, Jean Hart Artwork designer Mugs.
Coffee Please.
Here's a little list I found that will help you decide what kind of coffee you want to order.
  • Express-rich coffee made by forcing water through finely ground, dark roasted coffee beans.
  • Latte- espresso with steamed milk
  • Cafe au lait-equal parts espresso and steamed mild
  • Mocha-latte with a little bit of chocolate
  • Cafe breve-espresso with steamed Half and Half
  • Espresso com panna-a serving of expresso topped with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream
  • Iced espresso- a double expresso poured over crusched ice
  • Iced cappuccino-single or double serving of expresso poured over crushed ice and topped with an ounce or two of cold milk
Relax, sit down and enjoy your coffee like you enjoy your small sip at a time....

For The Love Of Love

For The Love of Love!

For The Love Of Love digital artwork by Jean Hart
 Haiku for you today.
For The Love Of Love

Love at it's fullest,
Heart laughter at it's loudest,
Warm soft and gentle.

When the day begins, I often begin my journal with a list of things I would like to accomplish for the day......It gets longer as the day progresses and I do not cross off as much as I would like. But I try to put something on my list that has something to do with the people I love.
I would say that it's important to put on your to do list, "Put people first".
Say you care, tell someone they matter, and make sure to tell the people you love you love them.
I plan on writing letters to my family and putting them in my sock drawers so when the day comes that my children come to clean out my home......they will find these letters and know my inner ward thoughts and feelings.

Out of the chaos

I'm sure that out of the chaos the love will come shining through.

Let It Be ....experience the change

Let It Be...acrylic monoprint, Jean Hart Artwork
Let it Be..Let the people in and let life be.
Let it happen...Let it go..
Just learn to let it be.
Breathe in.. breathe out, Let it Go. Let it be.
Stop thinking.....let in happen.....Stop directing....let it be.
Sometimes you have to let someone in from across the world to tell you that you are here.
You may not know you are already in the place where one has opened their home to you and provided a space so safe, so accepting and so peaceful that your response is to just Let It Be.
Does if feel foreign to you? To have such a blissful place to hang out in. Where no one wants to change you.
Just learn to Let It Be.
You have traveled far, and you have met many people, and you have had great discussions, and you have now come to a place where......You can say Let This Be My Life...Let It Be.
You've been through the widening paths of intense self-awareness. The aloneness. The over worked, over stressed, over achieved....Now put it down....Let it Be.
I have enjoyed the journey and many changes have been made. Every step was a step out of my comfort zone and I know how strong I am. There has been huge shifting of my perspective and paths have been chosen.
Let It Be...
I will leave a part of myself behind on the path not chosen but my whole self will walk happily onto the path I have picked.
I am now experiencing a sense of wholeness that makes a right choice almost to hard to articulate.
So to this new parting I say Let It Be.

Monday Morning Coffee Time

Good Monday Morning.......
Jean Hart Artwork original fine art design Mug,
I'm having a cup of coffee, come join me....
Each morning I start my day with a cup of coffee and Viva La the day begins.....
I have a collection of coffee cups from places I have been, so each morning I have a new cup of coffee with a great memory.
Friends are like that too. Some are old and have been around for awhile while others are new.
What determines a friendship?
Friends are a mystery.....I have old ones, new ones, younger ones, and much older ones. Some I see everyday and others I only send Christmas cards to. But I love them all.
Girlfriends are great to have, they understand me. Its like we have a language of our very own.  It's different from the language I have with my husband or children.
I'm Throwing a party, a coffee cup party.
show me your coffee cup and lets have some interesting conversations.
How do you view your place in the world?
Is it by profession, a calling, a mission?
Drink up.

Books, Books, Books.......Share with me what you are readng******

Learning never stops....and really it should not!
Looking out at the marina today I feel like I could break into a million pieces and still not see all that the world has to offer. I read about the places I will never see and hope that I get a good book that will take me there. In the text I can feel and taste and see the places I can only dream about.
Books can do that, they give me a place where I can live, open my home to and provide a space of such adventure, safely.
Do you know of any other thing that can give you safety, acceptance and mindfulness and the excitements of the possibility for your heart to do anything but break wide open to new experiences?

With great intensity of self-awareness I invite you to read Greek Mythology.
Read it for fun or read it for the psychology.
Experience a sense of wonder.  
Happy Reading

Pink Saturday

Pink Saturday....and Everyday.....Welcome
Do you ever feel like your just tense and you can't figure out why?

I don't know if it's because I feel summer is almost over and I registered for a fall college class. Or If it's just because my summer projects did not get done. But something's got me all tense today.

Root Bound acrylic 12" x 12
This is my daughter Sarah who went to Seattle and did a labyrinth.

Sarah in the middle of her laybrinth walk
She got to the middle and yelled out "I made it Ma!"... ..Well I have no doubt that she will always make it!!!

I wish that I too had a labyrinth to walk around, because I understand when you take the time to be silent and meditate answers do come.

How do you get untensed?

Tree of Life

Tree of Life

I found this really cool tree sculpture while shopping around town.
It holds candles in the votive cups.
So I thought how cool would it be if the Tree of Life held candles that represented the colors of the chakra.
So I filled them with
Cranberry red, for love and passion.
orange for strength, and success
 yellow for communication
green for healing and prosperity
blue for peace
purple for wisdom
I also added two crystal holders and filled them with black rocks to absorb the negative chi energies.

Psyche's Third Task

Aphrodite's Third Task for Psyche
In the Greek Myth of Eros and Psyche
Aphrodite tells Psyche that "she must fill a crystal goblet with water from the Styx, a river that tumbles from a high mountain, disappears into the earth, and comes back to the high mountain again." Sounds easy....but of course it's not....The stream is guarded by dangerous monsters, there is no place to secure your feet...A Crystal goblet of river water!!!
Back to modern day, and just as it happens, just this last week when I went to visit my Mom, she gave me a CRYSTAL GLASS!!!!!
Oh how I love the Universe!!! Now what can I put into this "crystal goblet"? The River is not just a river you know? Oh No No, its the river of "Life and Death" it flows fast and treacherous, its banks are dangers and lets not for get the big mean monsters!!!
This task is telling us how we Women must relate to the vastness of life....One glass, one task, one thing at a time. Forget multitasking. She must do one thing and do it WELL.
Do all that you want to do, just remember you can really only do one thing at a time.
Did you know crystal is very fragile and for me precious,and so is your self image and ego.
Bring this task to modern day for me......
I have my crystal goblet. And so I will fill it with my diet shake!!!! My "Water of Life" to accomplish my "one task at a time" health issues. Because this drink is not easy to come by, it's expensive, it's full of mind traps, sometimes I would rather have a bagel, and we know what a slipper slop they are. I want to be around for years to come ( vastness of life), I know that it will take one shake at a time to accomplish this task.
