Hi Gabi...and all

Wow.. this is amazing...Roadside Potluck.. a scrumptious and fitting name! I just LOVE that cactus...and didn't know it was - I'm drawn to it though...it's appeared in a few of my collages - and I keep gathering more images of it... I just love how it's thick and textured...and ever-unfolding...like a lotus. I had no idea it flowered! It's giving me so many lessons here...the unseen flowering of our soul is what I'm getting...thank you so much! Especially in this SoulCollage card - with this very "cactus mandala". This card is about how I often felt murkey...and blue - and that cactus is a big part of that collage - and now...I know why.. of course, "you had it all along, Dorothy!" - the flower is there..waiting to bloom at my recognition of its unseen presence. Thank you Gabi! --

And..here it is again in my Embracing the Mystery card - along the side the catcus is there too. For me, me that cactus is the "lotus of the succulents"! And what a succulent life it is!

This is the perfect testimony of how when we share ourselves..and what we love...we're all blessed immensely! Thank you, thank you, thank you -- ALL of you!

Blooming gratitude and blessings abound!!
