Rainbow Bridge

November 19, 2014

I had to share with you my excitement!
I returned last night from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where I viewed
"The Rainbow Bridge"--my latest delightful creation on Exhibit at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in the Wertz Gem Hall, alongside amazing masterpieces of gem art.
I am still breathing deep taking it all in.
I finished the piece the day before it was photographed for the jurying process.
Knowing it was not its name, but needing to send the info right then, I called it "The River of Light". 
It was not until a week later that the name "The Rainbow Bridge" andall that it stood for came to me with crystal clarity (with the help of a 12 year old rock star named Sydney).
"The Rainbow Bridge"
A bridge between humanity and the mineral kingdom,
A bridge between the 32 countries of the world where these stones were collected over a 20 year span before being carved.
A bridge of diversity.
A bridge of light and beauty. 
A bridge of awareness and love.
If you get a chance, go see the exhibit, it is an amazing collection,
and Pittsburgh was beautiful and interesting too!
Thanks for celebrating with me!

Soothing the nervous system,
Opening the heart,
allowing for more spaciousness and awareness.
When I feel this green garnet on my skin
I there is a calming.
I notice the receiving of my breath.
I notice the beating of my heart...
