growth

  Therefore…love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast…. be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle […]

magical

I’ve been thinking a lot about magic lately. Not the pull the rabbit out of the hat or ride down Niagara Falls in a barrel kind, not at all. The much more personal kind, the magic that allows us to shift and change and sort and clear and somehow arrive at a place of freedom that we never could have imagined. The kind of magic that allows us to begin over and over again, to return to that place of grace and wide open possibility.

ocean

      …all that we do Is touched with ocean, and yet we remain On the shore of what we know. ~ Richard Wilbur   And yet, we are the ocean, aren’t we?

Potential

    “You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.” ~  Rumi     I’m home, and […]

      I’m home, after a few weeks of amazing experiences even though I was exhausted.  And all is well, even though I’ve been waiting to hear about the biopsy results for a few days now and have several days more to wait.   And I’m fine, though I seem to need to nap […]

I am

      I am from…   the omnipresent, translucent, glowing moon, the slippery, satin, echoing strength of the dolphin, and the iridescent, intricate mosaic of the mermaid’s tail.   I am from…   the clan of Delina, Mabel and Violet May, the below decks of the wooden ship fleeing across the sea, the oyster […]

being

      There is something to be said for doing the hard work of becoming who you truly are. Not easy, no. Yet perhaps it’s what we come here to do.

Acceptance

      There was a time when I would not have shared this photo with anyone.  A time when I would not have seen the beauty here.  Followed by a time when both the grace and the imperfections would have registered, and I still wouldn’t show it to a soul because, you know – […]
