I witness my disappointment because I can see him slowly leaving me, and I also witness my love, for I have the honor of tending him as he slows down. I am left with a choice. I can resent my husband’s limitations, or I can be a compassionate witness and helper.

Posted on Friday, August 23rd, 2019 at 2:19 pm.

Follow your bliss. The message zagged through my brain with the charge and sizzle of a lightning bolt. In one moment, my world reorganized. I had been slogging through some work I wasn’t well suited for, feeling miserable and wondering how I would manage to both be productive and feel happy. Follow your bliss. Find…   Read more »

My Teachers, The Trees

I do not believe that I could be here, on earth if there were not beauty; if aspects of life were not like a cathedral with the feeling of some kind of beauty, love, truth or perhaps even god.

Please Forgive Me. Thank You.

Posted on Sunday, July 12th, 2015 at 7:38 am.

As time seems to quicken, and our experiences intensify, and as I’ve personally experienced more loss and death in my life, I find myself seeking more peace. As I let go of more of the external – outcomes and things – I find myself needing to focus on what I find most important – releasing…   Read more »
