Sacred Spaces ~ Journeying Within




This is  a new piece I am working on
*



As I sketch 
I travel inward
the pencil guiding me towards 
the sacred and quiet places within


I listen..I shape the lines..
blending gently with my hands...

I am searching this map of creation
questing....and reaching

...and I feel something 
reach back




*
When the sacred within you... reaches back
you are changed somehow
like an invisible thread of light 
weaving you Home
and making you Whole
~victoria pettella~

Victoria








Wishing you sacred moments..
and sacred journeys within!
