Sunny Day at the happyluau

It was a sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest, and I was inspired to make you a video. It is 7:57:

O--this might be my favorite O TV episode ever (a close second being your "to heck with these freaks" one when you abandoned the seminar a few months back) only because your garden shots, while beautiful, tell me nothing about Olivia. That's my own lack of vision, I confess! Your garden speaks to others in a language I do not speak.

How you have come to this place where everything is impacting you as if like little needles in the solar plexus is so informing. You are suffering and smiling, and that's how I view life at its sweetest. It is only when we can enjoy our difficult times (or, to be more accommodating, tolerate those times) that we can claim to be fully alive.

Call me crazy (get in line, as I insist on protocol), but the intensity you are feeling while also smiling is so cool I have no words.

Wow a Christian. It IS good to see you smiling again!

Always, I am in awe of the beauty of the property where you live.

Keep smiling! :)

Olivia said...

Thank you, Rick, that means so much, you'll never know. And I do get what you're saying...TOTALLY. Thank you for your love and support, Much love, O

Olivia said...

Thank you, Patti! Yes, indeed, although what kind of Christian, I have no idea. I am fond of labeling and categorizing, I guess. I just know that when faced with nothing at all to hold onto with my "ordeal" almost a month ago, I cried out for a faith that I had lost years before and it has stuck. Thank you for your love, encouragement, support, xoxo, O

I loved this video, Olivia! It was fun driving along with you. Glad you're enjoying Patti's book. It is fabulous!

Olivia....discovered your site via a post on Rick Hamrick's site which I discovered because of a comment he left on mine as a result of Patti Digh's site (& book). Haven't seen any of your other YouTube videos, but will go looking for the "to heck with these freaks" one when I finish here. I built a collage around a photo my nephew took & we are both SO pleased to be in Patti's book. All that to say that I'll be at B&N U Village tomorrow night & hope to meet you then/there. (This is an awesome video to me because of how darn authentic your communication is. wow.)

Olivia said...

Thank you, Leah, published artist! xxoo, O

Olivia said...

Megan, your photography looks beautiful, I will look forward to looking at it more closely...AND to seeing you tomorrow night! Thank you for the kind words about my video, and welcome to the happyluau. The video Rick is referring to is either this one:

or this one:

but I think it's the former.

See you tomorrow night,

Blessings,

Olivia

Olivia, I am so excited for you that you will meet Kate I for dinner. That is so cool. Thank you for sharing this day with us. I hope the chiropractor helped. I only stick with those that make me feel better consistently.

I love the symbolism of all your blank works of art in progress...just like your life right now. Wow.

Olivia said...

HI, Kelly. The chiro helped a bit. I need a new one. You're right, that symbolism is pretty amazing. xxoo, O
