Crystal Beads of Light...

"There is an endless net of threads throughout the universe...
At every crossing of the threads there is an individual.
And every individual is a crystal bead.
And every crystal bead reflects
Not only the light from every other crystal in the net
But also every other reflection
Throughout the entire universe."

(an adaptation of The Net of Jewels,
one of the oldest written creations of humanity)

-Anne Adams

The "crystal beads" of light are here and now and also endless in all directions... shimmering, glimmering and pulsating all around us... this season is extravagant in the expression and connection to that miraculous beaded necklace of Light. Enjoy...

OH how this is so SIMILAR to what I had in mind for my latest post, but I ended up writing from this one moment in my life about the pencil. Who knew that that Christmas day, that seemed so UNSPECIAL, would result in a blog post. THANK YOU for your kind words and encouragement to go on to pursue my dream to write. MANY BLESSINGS OF LOVE TO YOU AS WELL, KAREN! Anita

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
