hot pink, Canon Digital Rebel

Everything is perfect.
You are doing enough.
You are exactly where you need to be.

I have to say, I found this quote about 15 minutes into my very first tentative journey into the "blogosphere," and I inexplicably welled up and am now sitting, damp-kleenexed and teary, in front of my computer.

I don't know you, don't know anything about you (not yet, haven't read much yet) but these three little lines are like the greatest possible blessing for a gotta-do-it-all-and-then-some kind of girl like me. I am really touched, way past touched into flattened, by reading this. I'm going to make a BIG printout of these lines and hang it in my studio, so i can see them all the time. Thank you!

A very beautiful shot. And thank you for the encouragement! You are a sweetie.

Posted by: Anja at May 14, 2005 11:23 AM

My very favouite kind of shot... a lovely close up, blown out around the edges.

I sighed loudly when I saw the full picture.

Lovely stranger, you are a beautiful part of my life.

Absolutely Fabulous Andrea...exactly what I needed. Thank you.

i am going to artfully transfer your words onto a beautiful piece of paper, frame it and put it next to my bed. it will be the first thing i see when i wake up, and when i go to sleep.

if that's okay with you of course. :)

thank you.

the perfect quote to start my friday! I will write it down as my mantra for today..

thank you andrea for that little bit of sunshine today..

Posted by: heidi at May 13, 2005 04:21 AM

gawd, I can't tell you how relieved I was to see this when I checked your site today. just as I needed it most, perfect.

Thanks Andrea!

I had a profound moment of deja vu the other day. That sensation always comforts me...because I choose to believe that that familiar feeling is awarded to me as a reminder of just that: I'm right where I need to be.

Posted by: Marilyn at May 12, 2005 09:40 PM

just what i needed to hear today ~ thank you.

Posted by: stef at May 12, 2005 09:29 PM

Are we doing enough? there's always more to be done, at least that's the way it feels sometimes. Thanks for the thought.

Posted by: Kristen at May 12, 2005 07:22 PM

Are you sure about that because it's hard to stay motivated!

Posted by: sharon at May 12, 2005 05:45 PM

Sigh. Oh my. That was _exactly_ what I needed. I have been really stressed out, but I had a gush of peace when this came up on my screen.

Posted by: Lisa at May 12, 2005 05:08 PM

exactly! the hot pink is perfect, too.

Posted by: mati at May 12, 2005 03:42 PM

wonderful photo.
thanks for the words too. I put them on my computer brower so I can be reminded that I am where I need to be. I can relax into the moment and trust it is as it should be.


Posted by: mikaelah at May 12, 2005 03:39 PM

it's amazing how something 'simple' like that is all we need to hear yet we dont know that until we actually hear [or read] it.

thank you.

So It Is
So I Let It Be


Posted by: georgy at May 12, 2005 02:35 PM

I guess I can't say it any more eloquently than the others...THANK YOU

Posted by: wn at May 12, 2005 01:08 PM

Thank You!

Posted by: joy madison at May 12, 2005 01:02 PM

wow, i needed to hear that too.

Posted by: kristen at May 12, 2005 12:24 PM

Thanks. I needed to hear that. ;)

Posted by: Lu at May 12, 2005 12:22 PM

I really love your floral shots. Where do you find all these beautiful flowers? Do you go to a botanical conservatory or something?

Posted by: Carolyn at May 12, 2005 11:43 AM

I don't believe you. ;)

Posted by: Penelope at May 12, 2005 11:38 AM

So simply true for us all.

Thanks for the lovely reminder today :)

Posted by: Kelley at May 12, 2005 11:29 AM

Thanks for the reminder. I needed to hear that. I just finished a very emotional journaling session about what I failure I feel like as a parent. I needed the encouragement!

Posted by: Michelle at May 12, 2005 11:28 AM


Stunningly beautyful! My favourite colour!!
And your lines are just what I needed to hear today. I take it as the sign to go ahead with my plans as I want to and keep going into that direction. Just today I made the final decision and chased away the last doubts and fears I had. Your lines are confirming that I am on the right path. They are the sign I needed and had asked the universe for.
Amazing Andrea, awesome, beautiful, stunning - and just perfect.


Posted by: Tine at May 12, 2005 11:22 AM

very cool. And just what I needed to hear today! Thanks:)

as a consultant (events & life coaching) who is currently very worried about the future,
i think what a beautiful statement,
i will try to embrace it but it is rather scary.

Posted by: crystal at May 12, 2005 10:33 AM

I agree with Kate's comment below - this should be everyone's mantra. And it seguays so nicely into your comments about praying and letting go...

Posted by: Jennifer at May 12, 2005 10:12 AM

Those are just the words I needed to read right now. Thank you!

Posted by: Rosie at May 12, 2005 09:51 AM


You rock girl! I love this picture. So beautiful.

It's amazing how easy this is to forget. It's so nice to be reminded of this when I'm not thinking it at all.


Posted by: jenn at May 12, 2005 09:25 AM

right on, sister!!


Posted by: sasha at May 12, 2005 08:51 AM

I've very recently quit a secure, well-paying job in order to start my own graphic design business. It's both exciting and scary at the same time. Sometimes I'm very optimistic and think that this really has a chance of working. Other times, like today, I'm a nervous wreck and think I've made a terrible mistake. I know you don't know me (although I feel like I know you - I read your site daily) but these few words have lifted my spirits on a day that my spirits were in dire need of lifting. For that, I thank you.

Posted by: Kimberly at May 12, 2005 08:48 AM

What a gorgeous photo!!! And what beautiful assurance your simple and short entry provides. Hugs, A -

Posted by: Carrie at May 12, 2005 08:46 AM

Thank you. This is becoming my mantra.
