Day 407- Place of Rest

Peonies By Drora

I was exhausted. After months of creating, it felt as if the abandoned house has taken every last ounce of me. Nothing was all I wanted to do. And nothing was what I did.

Sanflowers by Birgit

My generous and creative friends did all the work for this next room. A secret little jewel of a room that brought the garden from without to within. Scented by peonies and cheered with sunflowers, this is my Happy Room.

Here, I can finally lay my weary bones down on a soft billowy cloud and float off; close my eyes and dream the wondrous dreams. There is no place my imagination cannot bring me, nothing my fanciful strengths cannot achieve.

Pillows By Mercedes

Love, Truth, Freedom, Beauty. Abstract concepts that are at once evident from a glance of my sanctuary. How is it that everything that is important to me in my life can be contained in this little space? Ahhh.. but that is the magic of what my friends do.

Golly Siblings by Drora

I will never be lonely here in my sanctum for everything in it will remind me of my friends from the world over. I know I am in their hearts and they know they will always be in mine. Even when we haven't spoken for years, haven't ever met or may never be able to kiss each other hello or goodbye.

For they have with their hands created lovely pieces stuffed with love, art and generosity. And they have sent their creations with a piece of their heart far far away to this little room. A room where all the pieces of our hearts can fused and be threaded through with our common passion. 

May I now present

Sanctum Santorum by My Friends

Ah for friends to pick you up when you need. Such beautiful treasures. I can sense the friendship in every detail in this beautiful place of rest. Ssshhh.... I'm tip-toeing out of here and let you rest. It is a Holy sanctuary indeed. XX,


Daydreamer said...

Oh, my Dear Sans!!! What a Gorgeous Sanctuary!!! It is just as I would Imagine it to be... Especially the flowers and little toys! (Oh WHY do some of our blogfriends get so quiet...?)I know... it is not for us to say when our Friends come and go.... it just IS. And we are so thankful for the little gifts that Stay! I LOVE the Sanctuary! Every little piece of it! I hope you are resting ... and won't Stay too Quiet Too long...! But Shhh... as Veronique reminds me... tip-toeing away.... Rest is good for the soul!

Josje said...

A beautiful thought Sans, to have a sanctuary for resting and being surrounded by friends, even though they are not physically near...

Elizabeth S said...

Hello Sans! I am so happy that you have made a room that is for rest and peace, because in between the mad creative drives there has to be some time to regenerate and to regain some of what we have used up in the process. I see that you have your tree sculpture in the same space! This is Good. To be surrounded also with the love and support of others, this is Very Good!


BiWuBär said...

That's what friends are for... ;O) I'm happy (and proud) that I was able to contribute a little bit to this special place. May your mind come to rest and shall you regain energy... and then get up and work on new miracles to brighten up the days of your friends in return.


Liduina said...

Dear Sans, what a touching post this is! With help of you friends you were able to take some rest and still fill your room with precious, beautiful items. I am sure you will treasure them forever! That is; your friends and their gifts as well :-)

Ilona said...

Dear Sans!! this is such a lovely room, a peaceful place to rest, being there must do you so good.... because it also is a kind of sanctuary, which is filled with gifts of your beloved blogfriends. What a beautiful gesture and it is so touching to read about this special room.
Have a great weekend. Lovingly, Ilona

Drora's minimundo said...

Dear Sans, I am so happy the little gollies rest in your sanctuary. It's the best feed back one can get.
The sanctuary perfectly compliments your beautiful and most original abandoned house. I love it.
Hugs, Drora

Ciao Sans, bellissima scena e tra gli oggetti presenti in essa e le tue parole si riflette lo scambio reciproco di affetto e di amicizia che hai con queste persone.
Un abbraccio, Manu

***Are You Dreaming????***

Sans! said...

ooooooh what a great way to wake up! All these beautiful comments. I have totally missed all of you and Bets, I am so going to read what you have been up to lately.

For some reason, it has been really hard for me to find the time to work on minis. I have many things on my plate,yes, been dancing almost everyday. But that's no excuse for being away for so long.

Anyway, you guys are making it real easy for me to get back :). I have a great community here and I am not ashamed (though a little shy) to tell you how much your love and concern meant to me and how I so love you back :).

Sans! said...

Ascensión, mi maravilloso y generoso amigo! Gracias, Angel, para volver de nuevo a abandonar esos comentarios. No puedo y no va a desaparecer por mucho tiempo. He echado de menos y este mundo demasiado :).
