A Message from the Stars

There will be wonder. Many will come and fall and rise again with chins held high. Quietly the world turns. Thought will follow them and become them. What of the fearful ones who wait in the corners and along the edges? Who will come for them? Will they spend eternity waiting to catch a moment that became another and another too soon? The conscious cosmic mutt scratches at the door of unknown certainties, howls at a moon soaked in spirit, dripping its silver sweat onto earth.IMG_6186

Looking Back With Gratitude

Thank you all who kept my spirit fed this first year of Trusting the Currents. You don’t know how much I appreciate your support and words of encouragement through all my self-doubt. It was a ten-year journey bringing Trusting the Currents into the world. Addie Mae changed the direction of my life and has been my greatest teacher. Whenever I question life, I open the book to a random page and somehow, there lies the answer. (Try it!)

The Pursuit of the Impossible

When you believe in something, never give up on it.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot, since I Indie-published my now award-winning novel, Trusting the Currents, a year ago. It’s been a looooog journey. One I tried to abandon many times, but the story wanted so badly to be heard, it wouldn’t let me quit. It still won’t.

The Strangest Adventure Yet

Of all the adventures I’ve had in life, and I’ve been blessed with many, turning Sixty (yes, Sixty!) is the strangest. No one tells you how suddenly it appears from the fog of youth. A ghost ship bearing the knowledge of quarry years, it arrives with no cannon’s roar.

Rebirth

April will be a month of profound change and opportunity. Of course, this feeling is seeded in the rumblings of my own life. Things are shifting; new ground is rising. April is a month of expiration dates. There will be unequivocal endings; to relationships and jobs yes, but mostly to something deeper…to our sense of identity. We are uneasy because it is so unfamiliar. Yet, if we can discard the weight of past patterns and thinking, and trust in what is not yet known, startling opportunities can emerge.

The Big Tree

I’ve been hearing from people who have recently lost someone they loved very much. I decided to re-post something I had written a few years ago about a friend who had died the year before. I hope it helps in healing:Thebigtree
