You can hear me sing on the youtube a beautiful song by Muriel Anderson why she plays the harp guitar. And to my husband music. I am posting my process of dreaming and praying to encourage you too of the possibility of reaching your true self that is buried in your dreams..your desires that God has put in you. His dreams for you that are Good and hopeful and have a future!! Love to hear you stories....
I have been in Southern CA. Dreaming and praying about being near my son and his family. It is a big dream with a big price tag. So it takes much prayer with faith and trust.
I was given a gift ...a little love letter by God to encourage me. I went to visit my son and also to look at the land to see where I would want to be and what to believe and pray for. To see where God would want John and I to live.
An amazing things happen. As I was looking at open houses I saw a home with a big price tag in Del Mar. I sent an email to John saying this would be my dream home. I just noticed that it had art, pine trees, ocean view and rocks...my dream. That is why I love Montecito by Santa Barbara. I was raised in the country of Southern CA that had wonderful buildings and vision...The Mission Inn was my play ground...where I would go draw and dream....with views of the Mountains, rocks and trees. I also lived in Florida so Santa Barbara is a perfect combo of the two places of my dreams..I also lived in England and would visit the Manor houses.
I have cherished being in water all my life a gift from my bio Dad whose family loved water..I am a little mermaid. I was a life guard and swim teacher and so was my son. I believe that water is more about mystery and intuitive ways of knowing..of God.
My husband loves a view where he can write more beautiful music. Del Mar has the wonderful aspects of Santa Barbara of canyons, surf and mountains.
I was blessed years ago to meet James Hubbell you can read about it below.
The love letter from God was that this "Surf Song" home was built by James Hubbell! And I didn't realize it. But when I did I wrote the Realtor and found out it was an open house! The only day I could have come!! So I knew it was from God to have the visit and the vision.
So I am pregnant with seed for another home. It will take much money and Faith. But my job is to pray and believe it is Gods job to figure out how and when and to bring the finances.
We just keep doing what he tells us to do with the gifts of our hands..and He say's a man's gift will make room for him.
If you have seen my beautiful big home on a hill on this blog you will realize it wasn't an easy journey.People are blessed when they visit..the yard, the views and decor..the light!! It was a miracle gift from God and answer to a prayer of Faith he gave me to believe.
Below is a photo of the Boy's House of James Hubbell in Julian CA. I had the pleasure of standing in it years ago.

James Hubbell is fascinating..you can listen to him on youtube.
Here are some things he said.
On Art by James Hubbell
"Science is about finding truth. Art’s is about finding mystery.......
I am curious why we are we so interested in Controlling everything. From schools to Genetics. We seem to not want any accidents and history has told us that is not possible....... I am hoping we are going into the Romantic Area where Mystery and the unknown are celebrated and not afraid of." James Hubbell
Harp Guitar by John Doan and Muriel Anderson. Open house Oct 2013 tour. Home film of "Surf Song" designed by James Hubbell. A personal dream & prayer film for livng on the south coast of CA. near my family.
A film dedicated to a Prayer to my God, to Love, and a Image of Life on the Southern CA coast. To James Hubbell beautiful vision for living in the south end of CA. infused by the Spirit of God. To my Grandfather Claude Bonine whom I lived with in my childhood. He was a builder of dreams with his brilliant artistry in Cabinets and various magical homesteads. They were more than homes just as James Hubbell homes where more than. Claudes homes were works of art, a place for people and family to dream and have joy. I honor my Grandfather and God for the vision God gave our family. For my Grandfather giving me his gift of love of place and nature.
I have built with my husband a beautiful Castle on the hill of Oregon. I see now where my artistic visions have come from. This song "Castle in the Sand" lovingly written by Muriel Anderson speak of the truth of what homes and place are truly for...the LOVE you can give people and to build a BEAUTIFUL thing!!
My husband JOHN DOAN and MURIEL ANDERSON'S compositions and exquisite Harp Guitar playing come together to bless this most humble video.
I didn't realize when I did the quick filming of the home that I would want to express it in a youtube video. So please forgive the poor quality. I used some of the low rez photo's off online Coldwell Banker Real Estate ad for the house in Del Mar. If I am contacted I would love to add the name of the photographer for credit.
