consider for a moment how "inspiration has rippled out to people and places that just needed that little spark to begin expressing themselves." these words come from leah @ creative every day. i read them just as i was preparing to write this post about three pieces of creativity--each one connected to the next in a serendipitous and circular way. the first piece was inspired by sue who wrote: ..."not only are we made of dust. We are also made of stars." i was so taken with those words that after pondering them for a few days, i designed and photographed "dust and stars" (on the right.)
which leads to the next photo and wonderful surprise that arrived today on my door step. sister kathryn at hearth talks saw the post and promptly responded with "i am sending you a surprise." [now, please understand that i only know sr. kathryn through this crazy blogosphere,] but she listened to her heart and sent me these "magic stars" (her own creation) arriving at just the perfect moment. a little later while catching up on some blog reading, i was back at sue's place reading her post "some good things." you can go read for yourself, but she was marveling over hearing a song in the grocery store called 'we are made of stars' by moby. i about fell out of my chair, but not before proceeding over to itunes to download the new song ☺. i was so delighted with all of this synchronicity that i had to create a new page in my visual journal here:
i call it "the day of the shining star." i want to remember this day and this beautiful stream of connectedness. it may seem small to some, but to me it is a wonderful reminder of how we never know when something we say, do, write or create may touch the heart of another in a very special way spreading out through the world like magic stars or as i like to call them 'diamonds in the sky.'
post script: one more piece of synchronicity...leah (who i referred to in the first paragraph) responded with a link to her piece of art created last year called "we are all made of stars." (i just 'met' leah in december of '07.) crazy, huh?
