I saw a wonderful film today at the IASD conference by Uma Markus. She is a dream artist who has been drawing out her dreams with colored pencil and then created this lovely short film from the drawings. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Celtic Blessing

On the day when the weight deadens on your shoulders and you stumble,
may the clay dance to balance you.

And when your eyes freeze behind the grey window
and the ghost of loss gets in to you,
may a flock of colours, indigo, red, green, and azure blue

and a stain of ocean blackens beneath you,
may there come across the waters a path of yellow moonlight
to bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
