Endless Possibilities

Easy To Be Hard

FAITH

Zen Hands

  I wrote this entry on my facebook page recently and it must have resonated with folks, since many responded with support and encouragement.   “Confession time(:  Realizing more fully how much energy it takes to be ON so much […]

Sacred Artists

Back On Track

  Facebook friend Jolene Setterfield shared an experience she had while traveling on a train in her home in London that gave me  the giggles, certain that I needed to write about it.  Just so’s you know….there really isn’t much […]
