Heart Song: 13th September 2012
September 25, 2012

Mary is making magic with her cello

Weaving a tapestry of sound

Passionate, emotional

Sobbing, singing, subdued and swelling

We listen in rapt attention

The music surging around us

My heart joins the song.

Mary Knights-Rutten conducts a sound healing group at Selby Community House. 

Charcoal Drawing: Bell’s Beach

The seascape appears then disappears as curtains of rain lift then fall again,

The car rocks as it is hit by blasts of wind,

The vegetation on the cliff top bobs and sways –

the only colour against a grey and white backdrop as the sea surges restlessly forward.

A glorious day!

The coot bob on the water honking to each other

The warm sun dapples the river

The green aquatic plants glow

How blessed am I!

The Eurasian Coot is a small water bird common in Australia.

The first picture was drawn with soft pastels. The second picture is based on the same river scene. It combines knitting and painting.
