Music: Zoe Keating Cellist & A Voice in the Wilderness

In expanding my work this past week into music, I kept seeing the body of the cello in my mind’s eye, yet I did not know what it was saying to me. That is, until today when I was replying to one of James Radcliffe’s blog posts. His post features an image of him playing the celloContinue reading “Music: Zoe Keating Cellist & A Voice in the Wilderness”

Sharing the Love: “Secret” Nominations of My Favorite Blogs

Last Thursday, I was nominated for this award by Hookupcultures. It took me until Late Sunday to realize there was some work in it for me. Then I needed some time for thinking about which blogs I would nominate (it was super tough!). I was quite a bit hesitant about this until I saw this as an opportunity to giveContinue reading “Sharing the Love: “Secret” Nominations of My Favorite Blogs”

Reblog: My Birthday Tribute: Poe

As I left for work today, a murder of crows descended over the rooftops of the houses in my row. An unusual site, usually the most crows I see together in my ‘hood is 3. I smiled at their sleek beauty and grace. I love crows (and most birds, for that matter). Not quite Ravens,Continue reading “Reblog: My Birthday Tribute: Poe”

Being Vulnerable to Accept Love

When we armor up and protect ourselves, we actually shield against the very thing we seek: Love. By removing the armor, laying down our shields and weapons we open up to receive and give love. In all actuality, the very thing we seek is already within. Writing, meditation and creative expressions are our windows intoContinue reading “Being Vulnerable to Accept Love”

Understanding is different from Knowledge

  Understanding is deeper than knowledge. There are many people who know you, but very few [truly] understand you. – Nicholas Cage  Is it part of the human condition to be misunderstood? Rarely do I find myself in the company of anyone whom I feel understands me for more than a fleeting moment, if that.Continue reading “Understanding is different from Knowledge”

Mama, a woman died in this house

My coming out [of my self-imposed prison] is the freedom to fully be who I am. And the surrender to the Divine Essence expressing through and around me. [and one day] My coming out [of my self-imposed prison] is the marriage of twin souls with my life partner In Gratitude In love Unfolding as moreContinue reading “Mama, a woman died in this house”

Disconnecting Facebook to Reconnect with Myself

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. -Ralph Waldo Emerson Last week, I went cold turkey. I shut down my Facebook account without fanfare and without much of any warning. It may only be temporary. Heck, it’s only been five days, so it’sContinue reading “Disconnecting Facebook to Reconnect with Myself”

Questions, questions, so many questions

Does the fire fear its own power? Does the wave ask if it’s part of the ocean? Does the lake ask, “What is my purpose here?” Does the bird ask, “How do I raise my young?” Or does the chickless chicken feel like less of a chicken? Does the cloud ask what happens when itContinue reading “Questions, questions, so many questions”

Being a superhero (to save myself)

I often saw myself as the damsel in distress. Perhaps it was because inside of me lived the “evil stepmother.” Regardless of how well I walked the line, there was always something I could have done better. On my face I wore a smile, while on the inside I belittled myself. Most of my life,Continue reading “Being a superhero (to save myself)”
