Anything & Circles...

Hello from Salem, Oregon! (about 250 miles from where I live). I set out Mon. morning for my 12 day Oregon adventure! I first spent a (TOO SHORT!) 24 hours in Portland, then headed to Salem, where today was the start of Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch's Encausticamp, which is 4 days of arstywaxywonderfulness! (including a day of breaking from the studio to explore several local art museums & galleries as well as wineries and a creamery in the beautiful Willamette Valley!) Yes, it is as awesome as it sounds! Right now my head is OVERFLOWING with ideas, new techniques to try, inspiration and excitement...and this is just day one!
And after this camp, I am heading North up the coast of Oregon to explore for another 5 days! And yes, again...I DO know how very lucky I am to be able to go on this adventure! (thanks to my unbelievably supportive & encouraging husband, who encourages me in any and all pursuits of my creative explorations!)

So it's Wed. again, which, for me, is blog post day!
I'm Wishcasting with Jamie, this week asks us:


Oh, SO many different wishes came to my mind as I read this weeks queary...but I think that the one wish that comprises all of my throughts is simply that I wish everyone, EVERYone, would have the ability to reach their fullest human potential, pursue their passion, fullfill their purpose, make deep, meaningful connections with others and feel true inner contentment within their heart and soul.

(I know, HUGE wish...but it DID say if ANYTHING was possible...!)

And I DO believe that someday, probably not in our lifetime, but SOMEday, humankind will evolve to the point of realizing that there is so much more to life and themselves than what so many people are "stuck" in...limitinglimited/ beliefs, limiting/limited options, limiting/limited means,limiting/ limited connection to self, earth and others.

And this week's 52 Photos Project asks us to share a photo of...
                  The whole universe is based on rhythms.
                   Everything happens in circles, in spirals.

Have a wonderful week!
Happy Me-Laurie Z!


  1. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too. x lovely wishes

  2. I appreciate the global healing energy of your wish and hope this happens within our lifetimes. It seems to be happening day by day and that's a start. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you, too! ~Lisa

  3. Beautiful wish - I agree, I believe we are evolving as a species and one day we will get to the point where we no longer see limits.

    As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

  4. love the repetition in your photo

  5. Enjoy your stay in Oregon! I live in Portland and absolutely love it. I like your photo.

  6. Are those chocolates? They would be the best kind of circles!! As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you.
