Happy Birthday Michelangelo

He was born on March 6th, 1475 in Caprese, Italy. He was baptized Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni. What a beautiful name for such a great talent! He is mainly known for his fabulous paintings and sculptures, but he was also an architect, poet and letter writer. It is said that 500 of his letters remain, none of his poetry. There is some mystery surrounding him and his work, especially about secret codes he supposedly put in the Sistine Chapel ceiling. See this article for more intrigue. It is from the UK Daily Telegraph from 2008.

I find his birth date of interest, and the little I have learned about him that grows my curiosity, especially in this 2012 year of revelations (Maya prophecy, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, Rudolph Steiner, and many others). I read that he was drawn (no pun intended) to ancient stone carvings and sculptures, and that he preferred sculpting to painting. What is with stone that so many relate to? 

I recall studies with a native American Grandmother who taught me about the Stone Nation. I love that title, and the Tree nation, etc. There is life and spirit and beauty in stone, Michelangelo saw people, mainly biblical figures in stone. He was one of a kind genius artist who is still telling his admirers the stone stories, and possible secrets in codes in his paintings, too. 

Do we need to further study his work and read his letters to see a clearer message, or is that all conjecture and conspiracy theory? Maybe something will come to light this year, for sure it would be nice to greet one like him in this age of raised conscious - not exactly a Renaissance, but the cycle could come around again.

Anyways, Happy Birthday Michelangelo, wherever you are <3 <3<3

Some Days are Just Like That




                                                              


Having a discombobulated yet still hanging in there day? Unfortunately (or not) baby boomers notice aches and pains and creaks that weren't there before. Before what, one may ask. Just before. Nothing having to do with anything but before. Of course we may tend to analyze out of our head into the universal thought world that the cause of our notification is because of this or that, and cuckoo enough, this or that happened before!

Eventually we may be granted some grace to be present. The focus changes mysteriously, to now. A sigh of relief comes because the truth is, that NOW is all we have. It is brought more and more to my attention as the living from the heart, seeing from the heart, hearing from the heart just seems to be the way of living now, not before. The happy thing about this is that we are all so imperfect and we can stay humble in this awareness. That is an awesome gift, like forgiveness always being there for the asking.

We can see the beauty among the broken. Some days are just like that.
