Your One Wild and Precious Life...


"Tell me, what is it you plan to do 
with your one wild and precious life?"

Mary Oliver

These words hold profound meaning for me.

Deep down in every little pore and the core of my heart.

And each time I read the words, touch the words, feel the words...

And surrender to the question of the words...

I feel the desire, the calling, the longing... I feel the answer.

It's as though a voice inside is saying, "Come, this is the way...

Remind yourself to feel it. Remind yourself that you already know.

And trust yourself.

This is your one wild and precious life."

It is time. It is time to question. It is time to answer.

But mostly, it is time to live that question and answer too.

Much Loves,

Angela.

Like Shakespeare and Michelangelo...


"And when you discover what you will be in your life, set out to do it as if God Almighty called you at this particular moment in history to do it. Don’t just set out to do a good job. Set out to do such a good job that the living, the dead or the unborn couldn’t do it any better. If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music, sweep streets like Leontyne Price sings before the Metropolitan Opera. Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well."

Martin Luther King Jr.

Whatever you are going to do today?

Do it like Michelangelo painted pictures.

And do it like Shakespeare wrote poetry.

Awe the world with your passion!

Much Loves,

Angela.

Advice for a Human...


Advice for a Human.

"But know this. Men are not from Mars. Women are not from Venus. Do not fall for categories. Because everyone is everything. And every ingredient inside a star is inside you, and every personality that ever existed competes in the theatre of your mind for the main role."

Shine. And Manifest.


"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us. It is in everyone."

Marianne Williamson

I Believe in You...


"Saying the words 'I Believe in You' 
is often the beginning of a Miracle."

Angela Gwinner

And thank you, for all that have always believed in me.

Knock Knock...


"The door opened. Because I knocked."

Paulo Coelho

Learning...

 
"I have learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I have learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I have learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you will miss them when they are gone from your life.

I have learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I have learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I have learned that you should not go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands, you need to be able to throw something back.

I have learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I have learned that even when I have pains, I do not have to be one. I have learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I have learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

I have learned that I still have a lot to learn."

"Believe on Monday the way you believe on Sunday."

Rita Schiano

What Are You Going to Do...?


"Life is not about expecting, hoping and wishing. it is about doing, being and becoming. It is about the choices you have just made, and the ones you are about to make. it is about the things you choose to say. Today. And it is about what you are going to do after you finish reading this."

Mike Dooley

Please Don't Let This Happen...


"Oh my God. What if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written. Or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy. Or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It is going to break your heart, my dear. Please don’t let this happen. "

Anne Lamott

Please don't let this happen...

Start living. Your life. Your dreams. Now.

It is never too late. If you start... Now.

Become a Possibilitarian


"Become a possibilitarian. 
No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities. 
Always see them, for they are always there.”

Norman Vincent Peale
Declare it possible. And it becomes possible.

Oh dear God. I love this quote!

Become a possibilitarian.

Let Your Light Shine...

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. 
As we are liberated from our own fear, 
our presence actually liberates others."

Sweet Surrender...


Sweet Surrender...

"You surrender to a lot of things which are not worthy of you. 
I wish you would surrender to your radiance and your integrity. 
And to your beautiful human grace."

Yogi Bhajan

Signed. Numbered. Limited Editions.









Today, the first of the WUNDERWORT art prints found their way and are now available at Alex's Tollkühn in Offenburg.

Each print is a signed and numbered edition of 99 prints.

A Rumi collection is in the making and a few of those will be in an exhibit I'll be doing together with Katja from my flowers of life. A formal invitation will be sent out over the next days.

So there are little things happening here and there.

And to think, it was all inspired through My Beautiful Words. And the gifts you have given me here, helping me make this all and what it is.

If you are interested in these prints, you can contact me personally at www.WUNDERWORT.com

It's a collection in the growing and in the making...

Much Loves, Always.

Angela.

Beautiful People Become...


"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Beautiful people do not just happen. Beautiful people become.

And I thank you, for being beautiful.

Much Loves,

Angela.

The Imagination of God...


"Imagination is the voice of daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that. He dared to imagine everything."

Henry Miller

I can't remember exactly when I first read these words. But it does go a many few years back. Teenager years. But I will never forget the passion these words gave me, and ignited in me.

And I believe, much of what I do today, and my ongoing love for words and the power of words, I can attribute to the emotion and intensity of this beautiful quote.

To this day, and most likely forever more, it remains one of my personal favourite quotes, of many. But this one, holds a special place. Like the first kiss would hold a special place.

It was the start of a loving relationship... with words.

Much Loves,

Angela.

Messages and Coincidences and Serendipities...


"The Universe is always speaking to us. sending us little messages, causing coincidences and creating serendipities, reminding us to stop and to look around. Reminding us to believe in something else, to believe in something more."

A New Day...


"I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, 
a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic 
waiting somewhere behind the morning."

J. B. Priestly  

Shall We Begin?


"The openness to begin is all the openness we are required to have each day. We start today, and tomorrow we start again, and the day after we start again, as we will the day after that. In this way, and no other, does our journey come to us. We begin. And the rest unfolds through us."

Julia Cameron

Shall we begin?

And we'll let it unfold... Begin. Now.
