Meaning

We all search for meaning in life, wether consciously or unconsciously. When we are teenagers, we look to fit in because that will bring meaning to our existence.

Light and shadow

Yesterday I looked out my kitchen window to experience the most marvelous picture in the sky (see above)…I took a chair, planted it firmly in the middle of my backyard, and sat there, Dorito (my dog), on my lap (an ever present soul by my side), feeling the ecstasy of the moment.

The greatest gift

What more can I ask on my birthday… To be loved and love as much as I can…Words don’t mater, things don’t matter, just the knowing that I am loved far and beyond, knowing that my heart is open far and beyond… To speak my truth…whatever I do in life, do it from my soul, … Continue reading

The heart

When I think about the heart, what an amazing part of our body!…It gives us life, and it also takes it away in a heartbeat.
