...and then go out and do that...



don't ask yourself 
what the world needs
ask yourself what makes
you come alive
and then go out and do that
because what the world needs
is people who can come alive
Harold Thurman Whitman.

my little corner.
of heaven.
summer in full swing.
evening shadows.
makes enjoying the moments.
easy.
just BE.

...into the world we go...


Today let’s focus less on what we want and more on what we have;
 less on our mistakes and setbacks and more on our potential.
 And finally let’s do our best to spend less time in our heads
 and more time in our hearts
. And with that, into the world we go!

 Begin with Yes

soft, subtle.
evening shadows.
the sun shining.
through the big dandelion.
it catches my eye.
and i hear it.
whispering.
i am here.
i am still beautiful.
breathe me in.
enjoy the moments.
just BE.

...7.6.14...











Moms come in all shapes & sizes, 
but they're pretty easy to recognize because
 they're the ones who teach you stuff all the time
 about how to be in the world & sometimes that sounds a lot like:
 chew with your mouth closed, sit still. stand up straight, be polite, Look them in the eye
. & sometimes it seems like that sort of thing doesn't add up to a whole lot. 
Until the day you feel the soft ache of love in your heart that makes you take care with a friend
 who hurts or when you look in a stranger's tired eyes & you stop & smile.
 Or when you listen to the ABC song for the thousandth time & you laugh & say 'again'
 & suddenly you understand that is the real thing moms do & it adds up to the whole world.

...the gift of you...


when you start to crack open,
don't waste a moment gathering
your old self up into something
like you've known before. let your
new self splash like sunlight
into every dark place & laugh
& cry & make sounds you never made
and thank all that is holy for
the gift, because now you have
 no choice but to let all your
 love spill out into the world.
