...just BE. favorite day...




We sat at the edge of the world
 & you laughed & asked a thousand questions
 & later, at dusk, I carried you sleeping in my arms 
& you woke for a moment & smiled & said
 Today was my favorite & I said Shhh, but I had to agree.
~Storypeople

...just BE. music...



"In different hours, a man represents each of several of his ancestors,
as if there were seven or eight of us rolled up in each man's skin--and they
constitute the variety of notes for that new piece of music which his life is."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

she is my music.
she will play my notes one day.

The way back to your power is simple. Whenever you notice yourself disconnect from the presence of love, simply say this prayer to come back to peace, " I witness that I'm out of alignment with my power. I choose to see peace instead of this."
~Gabrielle Bernstein

...10.1.17..



There are those whose lives affect 
all the others around them.
Quietly touching one heart,
who in turn, touches another.
Reaching out to ends further 
than than they would ever know.
~William Bradfield

...just BE. of the moment...


There's a famous Zen saying: "If not now, when?"
This is a pithy way of reminding us that
nothing can exist outside of the moment.
By living in the now, you deprive pointless anxiety
and other destructive emotions of their oxygen.
The self becomes wholly alive in the element.
Awareness is the full appreciation of 
the self's relationship with now.
~1001 ways to live in the moment

breathe in.
breathe out.
fall.
just BE.

...just BE. sunshine...




“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
 Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
 The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
 and the storms their energy,
 while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” 
― John MuirThe Mountains of California

autumn is so brief in michigan.
tomorrow.
we are having ninety degree temps.
happy first day of fall.

Fight against the urge to rush. Savor experiences,  explore their meanings, learn from them. Take time to register your feelings. Turn experience into wisdom.

...just BE. still...



these are multiple shadows because
there were a lot of things she walked
away from without a word of explanation
when she was younger & she still
thinks about them more than she needs to.
~Storypeople

unfortunately, they are more prevalent.
earlier in the evening.
enjoy the moments.

we are but one

whatever we do to the web

all things are bound together.
