Own your cup

It was a blissful morning right around 8:30 with a cool breeze, cerulean blue skies, and a whisp of whimsy floating in the air.

Base camp

"If base camp isn't good, the climb suffers." My family and I just finished moving. Even though it was only across town I believe I aged 10 years.

Lizard Brain

I get so scared when I write these blogs. Putting a piece of yourself out for the world to see is both exhilarating and exhausting. I would much rather hide and be safe. We are like this you know, you and I. We have the primitive part of our brain called the Lizard Brain (look... Continue Reading →

Where am I?

"There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self." Benjamin Franklin If I had one wish I would wish for a map telling me exactly where I am in my life right now. Why this wish? Because if I know where I am I can chart where to go next.... Continue Reading →

3 Coins

Friendship

Like gold to the goldsmith, fresh water to the dry mouth, steady wind to the sail, this is what genuine friendship is like. Friends fill up and build up.

Flow

~A state of full immersion Here I sit Lord wanting to write and create yet realizing that it takes a minute to heat up the engine.

Anger

Dirt and roots

Growth amidst the dirt and roots, the grime and smell yet yielding to life. Crushed, down further and further into the decayed rotting soil of life goes the roots in search of precious water and sustenance. Out of the effort springs forth life above ground where the roots can't see. It seems our focus in life is... Continue Reading →

Invisible

More than anything in the world I want you to see me. Can you see me? Do you see my effort to get noticed? Can you see my dance, my song, my heart? I long to be noticed, to be accepted, to be understood, to be nurtured, cared for as a mother cares for a... Continue Reading →

Change begins with me

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself." Rumi When one gets better we all get better. Would you agree with that?

Pardon the mess!

Applause

Applause, like candy, is sweet to the taste yet leaves you always wanting more. Have you ever received applause only to want more?

Water always wins

We can't make a wave, we can't fight the wave, might as well surf the wave. Waves come at us daily in the form of circumstances. Fighting with life's waves leaves you all wet.

Kill the cul-de-sac 

Cul-de-sacs stunt growth. To kill the cul-de-sac you have to go back to the beginning to start again. Sometimes reverse is progress.
