Postcards from Paradise

Offerings give what comes from deep inside one's own soul.
No coins are exchanged.
The gift of an Offering is selfless.

Women, mothers, grandmothers daily share Offerings 
of refreshment and sustenance to all.

Some carry their Offerings lightly,
for others there is great toil and labor.

Through generations, Offerings of teaching, training, 

and nurturing.

She will pass on all that is offered to her.
Hand to hand
Heart to heart
Generation to generation.

Offerings, a communal table .



Mother Earth, the Genesis of all

Please take a moment and visit Rebecca Brooks at her oasis of serenity and beauty, recuerda mi corazon,
to experience her Offering of an open heart, prose and poetry liken to Mary Oliver, photographer and artist. 

Once a week she offers Postcards from Paradise where one finds extraordinary beauty in the ordinary. 

warmly, sharon
