I AM Spirit is a 64 page book of fine art paintings and inspirational words regarding the abilities and skills of who we really are as humans; a spirit living in a physical body. The colorful paintings by Junai Meijer are captivating and infused with the richness of life. Mary Rensberry’s uplifting words encourage higher values and virtues. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by words that portray man’s inherant nature. This is a very aesthetic and inspirational work done in collaboration between author Mary Rensberry of the United States and fine artist Junai Meijer of Amsterdam, Netherlands.
aopinionatedman.com Thank you for sharing. That’s what it is all about! 🙂
Here’s a sample from one of her
Questioned recently by a fellow artist, Stephen White:
“I’ve got to ask; what was your inspiration/goal behind words of wisdom (quite nice, by the way) matched with pictures of pigeon poop? I’m perfectly serious about asking: I’m not sure if you’re going for irony, humor, or genuinely scatological art. In any case, I like the bold concept!”
Mary’s reply, “Quite simply-I choose to change my viewpoint on what most people think of as “bird poop” to the work of art done by the pigeons. Most likely I’m going for all of the above as you state.
Seeing pictures and using them as I do is a twist, isn’t it?”smile emoticon
Stephen: “Art is about changing peoples’ perspectives on what they see and
experience. You’re definitely doing that! (Or should I say doo-dooing that?)” (grin)
So Mary is do-dooing just that…taking the works of art done by her new found friends, photographing them and writing inspirations to help to change people’s perspectives in the world one picture and line at a time.

May words bring healing
to your heart I’m feeling
Some may not be appealing
Why not healing words
with only positive verbs.

Just out: Nature’s Gifts to Humanity
Poem dedicated to L. Ron Hubbard, Humanitarian
I AM PLAYING MY TRUMPET!
There’s no other way around it.
I am asserting who I am and what I am about.
I believe a lot more people in the world need to know who they are as well.
If they DID know who they were and how they originated, then I believe we would have more harmony in the world.
We come from God, Yahweh, Source, Creator, Life or whatever name you know by whatever language you speak.
We are basically good.
Since we come from God, we are Spirit.
We each have a distinct purpose in Life.
Are you living your purpose? Do you know what your purpose is?
Are you a self-governing individual? If so, that’s great. If not, there’s help.
“Know ThySelf” is a well-known axiom.
Know Life is in you right now, so that through you, Life can continue and grow and prosper and then start all over again.
(Look at Nature as an example.)
Expect the unexpected!
