"Te somnia nostra reducunt."
And ask ye why these sad tears stream?
Why these wan eyes are dim with weeping?
I had a dream-a lovely dream,
Of her that in the grave is sleeping.
I saw her as ’twas yesterday,
The bloom upon her cheek still glowing;
And round her play’d a golden ray,
And on her brows were gay flowers blowing.
With angel-hand she swept a lyre,
A garland red with roses bound it;
Its strings were wreath’d with lambent fire
And amaranth was woven round it.
I saw her mid the realms of light,
In everlasting radiance gleaming;
Co-equal with the seraphs bright,
Mid thousand thousand angels beaming.
I strove to reach her, when, behold,
Those fairy forms of bliss Elysian,
And all that rich scene wrapt in gold,
Faded in air-a lovely vision!
And I awoke, but oh! to me
That waking hour was doubly weary;
And yet I could not envy thee,
Although so blest, and I so dreary
~Alfred Lord Tennyson

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
Some are Born to sweet Delight,
Some are born to Endless Night.
When the Soul Slept in Beams of Light.
God Appears & God is Light
phrases from Auguries of Innocence
by William Blake

Through sunlit day and starry night
A soft breeze lifts a leaf to flight
In midst of wildflowers a maiden sleeps
Her beauty doth make man to weep
A handsome knight with golden eyes
Holds vigil under cloudless skies
To keep the damsel from harms way
While in sweet repose she lay
Unknown to him he fills her dreams
Of walking hand in hand by silver streams
And as day's lamp shines from above
He sings to her his songs of love ~T. Beaman
Thank you so much for all of your personal emails, I appreciate all of the kind words, I haven't even told my family yet, silly me, they will want to fly in & make a huge fuss, although that actually doesn't sound that bad, maybe I could take a nap during the day ;)
I called the referring doctor this morning, that is a huge step for me, I am petrified of doctors you know~ they couldn't get me in until 9 am Wednesday, gosh I hope I don't keel over by then, I am still quite breathless, just talking or walking around~ and I must get to the store today~ I guess I am getting a taste of what it feels to be really old!
Last night I had a chance to work on a few more pieces for my etsy store, as 2 pieces sold yesterday (thank you J & J!!) http://izabellah.etsy.com
have a blessed day~ xo!!
Well....what fun the kids & I had today, spending a lovely Sunday at the emergency room!
I have been having irregular heartbeats for quite a few months now, but this morning it was really scary, I couldn't catch my breath & my heart was pounding like it wanted to jump out of my chest, then it would suddenly thump hard & skip beats, I couldn't even talk I was so breathless~ so I dragged myself and the kids to the hospital. My 10 year old was trying not to show he was scared, but he was asking all kinds of questions on how to drive the truck, probably thinking if I passed out. The ER was packed, like it was the "place to be" on a Sunday~ after hours & hours, tests, blood, ekg and cranky lil ones, they finally released me, saying nothing seemed to be life threatening, maybe arrythmia? maybe hyper thyroid? I hope it's nothing too serious~ Have to make an appointment with a specialist on Monday, like I have time for this.
So here I am back at home, yay! I was praying they wouldn't admit me into the hospital to stay, I guess that's why I haven't been to the doctors about this previous, scared~ but my heart is still skipping beats, it's such a weird feeling.
I don't do coffee, caffeine of any kind, no stimulants, no aspirin, no drugs.. illegal or legal ;) and not alot of sugar, so it's a mystery to me what could cause this~ oh wait a minute...maybe it was the movie I watched last night!! Lord of the rings, The Two Towers, my heart was racing a bit faster with all those men with there wild long hair flowing ....like Viggo Mortensen, oh my gosh he is so HOT in that movie :)
I think I will go do some stress relief and go create some art ;) xo!!
Selling seems to be very slow for artists on both sites, I wanted to list some new art & torn between where to list them~ wondering what your thoughts are on listing on ebay or etsy?!
Yesterday was the first time I have been near my art supplies, can I tell you I felt like a drug addict, not that I know how that would feel, but it was an intense rush to open up the drawer of paints and art supplies, that smell, that sweet smell that only an artist can love...after 2 months without creating, I felt as though the paint was rushing through my veins giving me life again~ aaaahhhhh so good to create again~

today I am feeling a little sad, as it is my youngest first day of school. I signed up for 3 full dayz but at the last minute I decided on only 2 dayz a week~ to have him away this long for 2 dayz is almost criminal, they better take good care of my baby~
He looked so lost, like he wasn't quite sure about the whole thing, he looked up at me with his gorgeous blues & told me...mommy you'll be ok, can you believe it! I kept my sunglasses on so he couldn't see me crying but I cried all the way home~ xo
