Quote for Today

Being authentic is the only pathway to the deepest form of freedom. It means opening to Spirit, mustering courage to move through the challenging process of our life’s conditioning. We may encounter surprises and ultimately experience astounding revelations when we uphold our vision to live authentically. Returning to my authentic self, I find freedom.

Quote for Today


Slowly now the evening changes his garments

held for him by a rim of ancient trees;

you gaze:and the landscape divides and leaves you ,

one sinking and one rising toward the sky


And you are left, to none belonging wholly,

not so dark as a silent house, nor quite

so surely pledged unto eternity

as that which grows  to star and climbs the night

To you is left (unspeakably confused)

your life, gigantic, ripening, full of fears,

so that it  now hemmed in now grasping all,

is changed in you by turns to stone and stars.


To you

From here-from there

From here we view these delicate outdoor begonias as fragile and vulnerable and yet from there we as part of a life laden earth  may in our glorious splendor   be a delicate flower rare and highly prized as the only species of it’s kind.DSC_8043r DSC_8062r DSC_8077rr DSC_8078r

The New Beginning

3-6-09 059revFor the past 1 1/2 weeks I have been struggling with the ending of my 34 year old marriage. It was not of my choosing but at some point, one has to make the decision not to resist what is inevitable and get on with their lives. This new poem, written for a friend,  begins that journey . The story of that struggle appeasr on the pages of Facebook.
