in this second part of the series, we’ll consider ways to live the united order now and explore more ideas to do with learning for ourselves about these topics. we’ll discuss more about marion g. romney’s talk on the differences between socialism and the united order. also, experiences with riots & political unrest as well as propaganda, critical thinking -- learning how to think for ourselves instead of merely thinking the way someone else suggests. next week you’ll hear a special interview with guest and dear friend: julia lowe. can’t wait!

candy colored studio podcast #140 - angels among us
over the past year, more than ever it has felt like the media & outside forces are trying to convince us that we're alone, everyone is out to get us and that we're on polar sides from all we know and meet. i've been looking for angels and forces of good around us that perhaps we may not see...giving love, strength and comfort. but i'm also seeing angels among us and visible...neighbors and friends doing seemingly small things (some big too)...making a difference in our neck of the woods. meet my neighbors on paradise lane: do they help you see angels around you too?

just as i finished recording, the twins were coming in the door...big twin sat to take off his shoes and asked me, “mom, can i talk to you?” oh how i love those words. they are like tender treasures. absolutely, i want them to talk with me, share their joys and sorrows. i want to listen to their sweet little souls to know what they need, and how to better love & support them. this episode is all about listening to these incredible tiny to young humans...getting out of their way, and cheering them on (mostly talking about the little people and the youth in our lives). i don’t have all the answers. but i have thoughts -- and as you can imagine -- a lot of them lol. i have memories...experiences of my own, and some of friends that i love and admire. together, may we allow them to change, heal, and elevate our homes, communities, and world!

artist katrina berg harvest moon oil painting
one of the things i struggle with most as an artist, is expressing verbally how i feel; why i create what i create. this is not the case for my dear friend annie blake. her words and art come together, support one another, lift & enlighten all who hear and see them...rare gifts indeed. for the past 7 years, annie has shared her gifts via her “november challenge”. different themes and different subjects, but november has been something i look forward to all year. this year, while she fights stage 4 pancreatic cancer, friends & collectors are sharing to keep the tradition going.
