• First I had some toast, bacon and eggs…
• Then I went outside to enjoy the garden and…
• Look what I found in the nooks and crannies outside…
• A beautiful array of eggs perfectly outfitted!
• HAPPY EASTER to you ALL!
Reason enough for me to call them • • • “Rolling Colors” • • •
Easter Eggs handcrafted by Lisa Rivas © 2015 (inquiries are welcomed)
Easter is not a time for groping through dusty,
musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal.
It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope,
a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising,
to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and,
the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown.

An Ice Storm can be the super ice sparkle for your eyes.
It is one of nature’s most beautiful and wonderous of winter storms;
with it’s glistening stems and branches all woven up with threads of ice.
Just have some good storm-boots on those feet!
It occurs to me now that I have never seen the ice-storm put upon canvas,
and have not heard that any painter has tried to do it.
I wonder why that is.
Is it that paint cannot counterfeit the intense blaze of a sun-flooded jewel?

“Love is a basket full of nuts and berries.
I know, because I gathered them from the forest myself. ”

but when captured in the heart the memory lives forever.”
