Why Kindness And Goodness Matters

“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.”  ~ Roy T. Bennett Life can be a difficult ride, and each of us at times will know pain, trouble, loneliness and struggle. That’s […]

How To Ask For A Sign

“The Universe sets out little signposts for us along the way, to confirm that we’re on the right path.”  ~  Michelle Maisto   This week’s energies are supportive of connection, communication, signs, breakthroughs and synchronicities (you can read more about that here). But how do you ask for a sign? I recommend that you ask […]

A Me Update

“Solar Eclipse Each morning I wake invisible. I make a needle from a porcupine quill, sew feet to legs, lift spine onto my thighs. I put on my rib and collarbone. I pin an ear to my head, hear the waxwing’s yellow cry. I open my mouth for purple berries, stick on periwinkle eyes. I […]

Those Misleading Rainbow Flags

“We can either emphasize those aspects of our traditions, religious or secular, that speak of hatred, exclusion, and suspicion or work with those that stress the interdependence and equality of all human beings. The choice is yours.” ~ Karen Armstrong, Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life “When I was 13 years old, my beautiful mother […]

The Voice

I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.”  ~ Lauren Kate, Torment Yesterday afternoon I lay down for a nap and fell into the deepest, dreamless […]

Wrong Numbers and New Friends

“Sometimes wrong numbers are the right numbers.” ~ Cecelia Ahern, The Time of My Life   Late yesterday afternoon I tried to call my sister.

Well, that was a bit premature…

“Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind.”  ~ David G. Allen I was kind of hoping to be sleeping right now. It’s 2am, and I was only fretfully sleeping at best between 8 and 11pm. Now I’m wide awake and I know the […]

How Synchronicity Happens

“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we’re alone.”  ~ Charles de Lint Have you ever wondered how synchronicity happens? It’s a […]

Will you join my Secret Dreams Project?

“Surround yourself with people who believe in you.”  ~ Brian Koslow A few weeks ago I first blogged about my Secret Dreams Project.  The idea for this project sprang from a life-changing experience I had as a child. When I was young I went to a funny little arts and crafts store in a tiny […]
