Only Love

“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.” –Don Juan de […]


Our Real Full Time Job

  This experience harkens back a few years, but it is every bit as timely today as it was then; a journal entry of sorts…   “I received an email from my friend Peter Moses a few weeks ago, as part […]


Reel Wisdom

I love movies, From the time I was a child, walking into The Fox Theater in Willingboro, NJ (and as silly as it might seem, before I entered the building, at around the age of 3, I really believed we were going to […]


Born Artist

  I initially met Phyllis Elizabeth Wright  (a.k.a. Liz) nearly 6 years ago and she has become a dear friend and creative Muse. She and I are part of a group of women who meet annually for a Goddess Retreat […]

Control Freak

Ever feel like your life is a roller coaster ride and some days all you can do is sit tight, buckle your seat belt and hang on? If you are like most people, the answer would be an unqualified YESSSSS~!  […]

Gracefully Aging Hippie

I was born in 1958, an autumnal arriving mid-October Libra child whose passion is collaboration. My husband  Michael (who is now in Spirit) used to refer to me as a ‘second generation hippie’, since I was 11 when Woodstock graced the […]

Dancing Star

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” -Friedrich Nietzsche   Last week, I engaged in a ritual in which I invited angels into my home and asked for their support in bringing about positive […]

Love Flavors Everything

This past Sunday, I was attending services at Circle of Miracles, an interfaith community in Doylestown, PA.  There I was surrounded by loving kindred spirits as we listened with rapt attention to my friend David Young share his sparks of […]


I have had the honor of knowing the remarkable young man that you will be reading about in a moment for the past four or five years. We have had conversations about spirituality, energy healing and martial arts. He has friends of all ages […]

Greater Gift

One of the things that I love about being the scribe for the Bliss Blog is that it keeps me real, vulnerable and transparent and offers permission for others to do the same. That’s part of the message today. Sometimes, despite our best […]

Love Without Limits

Today’s Bliss Blog is brought to you by none other than LOVE; that unmistakable, remarkable, beyond verbal expression that you are embraced by life itself. LOVE’S symbolic arms encircle you, rocking you in comfort, humming in your ear, the sweetest song […]

Puzzle Pieces

Today I was inspired by something I witnessed at my job as a social worker in a psychiatric hospital. One of the patients, a highly educated, professional woman was putting together a multi piece jigsaw puzzle of a house on an […]

The Sway Machinery

I was listening to my local NPR station (WHYY in Philadelphia) this evening and heard a remarkable interview with Jeremiah Lockwood who fronts the band The Sway Machinery. Based in Brooklyn, New York, it takes traditional Jewish cantorial music (chanted in […]

Spirit Singer

I’m not sure when New Thought singer-songwriter Lew Doty entered my life since it seems I have always known him.  His music inspires me to live in ‘God consciousness’. It accompanies me in the car and in my office; soothing […]

Undercover Angel

When my now 23 year old son was 14, he told me “Mom, I’m an undercover angel sent to teach you patience.”  I smiled/grimaced at that statement, since I knew it was true.  Nine years later, he’s still teaching and […]

As Is

I am dipping into the well of wisdom from the amazing Courtney A. Walsh once again for today’s Bliss Blog since it ties in with what I have been coming smack dab up against lately. “The universe doesn’t want/wish/desire/need us […]

New Year Of The Trees

Tu B’Shevat, the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar — celebrated this year on Thursday, February 8, 2012 — is the day that marks the beginning of a “New Year for Trees.” Some people refer to it as “Jewish […]

Welcome Wagon

When my Mom died back in November, I had her mail forwarded to my address so that I could continue to handle her affairs.  Envelopes began trickling Northward from her former home in Florida to mine here in Pennsylvania. Last […]


I met Janet Berkowitz back in the mid 1980’s through our mutual friend; author and speaker Alan Cohen. A group of us had been invited to her home to watch the classic Franco Zeffirelli film Brother Sun, Sister Moon. I […]

God Is In

Eternally ageless, singer songwriter, repercussionist whose music comes from his heart, voice and found objects, Billy Jonas offers his take on all the ways and places God exists. I first heard his music on WXPN 88.5 in Philadelphia .This song resonated so […]
