Dare boldly

In the tapestry of our life.



Beaumont keeps growing and enriching the tapestry of my life. 

Life is a beautiful tapestry. Colour and feeling woven together, threads drawn, threads snipped. Threads that hold their weave forever, threads that loose their warp and loosen. Each day threads connect, disconnect, Weave in. Weave out. Up and down, in and out in a rhythmic wave of motion.
The tapestry of my life is created beneath a warm and gentle weave of waves rolling into the sea, pulling under, pulling out, pushing forward. Each person, each encounter, each moment creates a delicate, vibrant thread, to be followed, to be left alone, to be explored, to be cherished for the value it adds, then tucked into the warp so that it doesn’t unravel.

We each have our tapestry. Vibrant. Colourful. Filled with design. Sometimes balanced. Sometimes just a riotous explosion of feeling and texture and colour and design.

Sometimes, we step back and look at a thread and see where its value has created a unique perspective that will last a lifetime. Sometimes we step into a colour and discover its value is the length of the space it fills. No matter the length of the thread, its value is integral to the overall weave and warp of our tapestry.

Like colour. To enhance green, to make it pop out, the artist adds a hint of red at its edges. To make blue sparkle, a touch of yellow. Each colour adds value to the next.

Each encounter in my life adds depth, meaning, value. I carry with me memories, lessons learned, feelings felt, ideas explored. I carry with me the touch of someone’s gentle words upon my heart, the imprint of their laughter. Their smile. Their eyes.

Every thread adds value not always seen to the one who has linked their to mine, just as I do not always see how my thread has linked to theirs.

Yet in our connection, story is made, story unfolds.

In our connection, lives are enriched, touched, changed.

May the tapestries of our lives connect and create beauty and awe with every breath.

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.

    • It was an easy piece Mark. I had spent an hour working on another piece that wasn’t ready for publication, so, I jotted off something quickly. 🙂

      And that’s okay.

      Beaumont always gets lots of looks! Online or at the park. He’s such a handsome and sweet guy…. most of the time. 🙂 Unless of course he’s demanding attention and is pushing one of his toys into your leg wanting you to throw it for him — then… when I’m busy doing something else…. he’s not so cute. Just annoying! 🙂

    • Possibly the third eye Lorrie — though, Mark is right… I was being ‘lazy’ in some ways. As I told him in an email, I’m okay with that. Sometimes, it is the laissez faire eye that sees so much more than my constantly searching for meaning eyes! Hugs my friend.


      • All that we ‘SEE’ will be revealed exactly when and how it is supposed to I believe!! When I feel like I am ‘forcing’ something, Louise, it is never as powerful as when I just KNOW!! Much love for a beautiful weekend! ❤


  5. So very true Louise! I saw Beaumont’s doppelganger outside the Analog Coffee shop on Sunday!
