Soul Flight

"No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings." ~William Blake

I've been into blues lately. The color of the ocean, representing water, consciousness, soul. The color of the throat chakra: communication, expression. Calming, peaceful, flowing, beautiful blues.

I made this piece for my grandma who is 98 years old. She is beautiful, courageous, strong, hard-working, independent and loving. She has faced many adversities and not only survived, but thrived. She is the person in my family who showed me an open-hearted love and strength. I don't get to see her very often as we live in different states and I always miss her, but I love our talks on the phone. She has always been my hero.

A few years ago, she was featured in her local paper in an article honoring her for her number of years of volunteer work and support of her community. She is not much of an advice giver but was quoted as saying, "No one should ever be bored. There is always something to do."

Here's to you, Grandma.



  1. What a wonderful story! And I can see your Grandma is very wise. Thank you for sharing her wisdom and spirit.

  2. This is beautiful, Kari, and a lovely tribute to your grandma. She sounds an amazing lady.
