Love Rules Supreme

I cried when I read the news. Happy tears for friends whose unions are now officially recognized in all 50 states. Some were legally married in their respective states, but could now claim to be ‘legit’ wherever they go. The […]

Light Bypass

  My friend, author, therapist and philosopher Jeff Brown has a bunch of wisdom to offer; born of both pain and pleasure. He spins out word fusions and mental meanderings like only few I have ever seen. Today was no exception. He […]

Life in the Midst of Death in the Midst of Life

    This morning, I woke up, grateful to have woken up. Nothing new, since I do that each day. Today has a different feel to it for many reasons. The first is that it is my one year cardio-versary, […]

Love is More Than Skin Deep

A video gone viral brings me to tears every time I have watched it.  It was produced by Love Has No Labels and opens by showing two skeletons kissing behind a screen. Thus begins a love-fest which evidences that the societally imposed separation based on […]

A Year in Review and A Year to Renew

  I am writing this entry on December 30th. At this time tomorrow, I will be ushering in the New Year with festive friends, who I am grateful to know. Music, dancing, drumming, food, hugs, smooches and general celebratory silliness […]

Happily In Love With Life

As I was  prepping for my radio interview tonight with don Jose Ruiz; author of My Good Friend The Rattlesnake: Stories of Loss, Truth and Transformation, I came upon this question that had me widen my eyes and take a heart […]

True Colors

I saw a post on Facebook this morning: “If someone shows you their true colors, don’t try to repaint them.” This lesson has long been with me. It has been at the core of many co-dependent and dysfunctional relationships/friendships throughout […]

Child’s Play

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my childhood experiences, almost in a life review format. Chalk it up to turning 56 in a few weeks. I grew up in a two parent household, with a younger sister born 2 1/2 years […]

Turn Your Mess Into Your Message

Wise people are everywhere. Today I met a wise woman while waiting to see my cardiologist. She was the receptionist who greeted me from behind her sliding glass (slid open, of course) window.  When she asked how I was doing […]

How Will You Love?

As I meander through the Facebook time lines of my friends, I am heartened by messages of healing, loving action and taking responsibility for their piece of the world. The messages they are putting out really do make a difference. […]

Spiritual Transformation

  My mind is open to wonders beyond words. My Spirit dances with delight in the knowing that in Essence I am One with all that it is and thus I am never alone. My heart embraces each Soul as […]

I Stand For Love

I am proud to proclaim that I am a heart forward love-monger. I grew up in a touchy feely, mushy gushy family in which verbal and physical affection flowed like water from a fountain. No one left the house without […]

God’s Too Big To Put In A Box

  This evening, I was noticing a thread on a friend’s Facebook page that included a lively conversation which began this way: “I am God in Garb You are God in Garb We are God in Garb God is everything […]

Illuminated Hearts

  In the depths of winter, the stars scatter across the pitch black expanse Dancing with abandon, solo and in overlapping soul-circles Like so many pirouetting, leaping, cavorting, frolicsome rhythmaticians Beckoning earthbound journeyers to hurl their corporeal forms skyward To […]

Precious Time

  This morning, I read an article written by a friend who I have not met face to face, although through another soul connection, we have been introduced. Her name is Janet Auty-Carlisle and like me, is a writer and […]

Available to Love

  “Love is like a friendship caught on fire.  In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning […]

I Hold Your Heart Sacred

Earlier today, I was speaking with someone about a concept that came to me a few years ago, that rings as true in this moment as it did back then. I was in a newly minted relationship with someone after […]

Love Can Heal The World

  What if you knew that there was a Force on the planet, the emanation of which could cure, heal, save, adjust, free, re-rebuild lives? And furthermore, what if it was free as the wind and available to everyone?  Would […]

Inside Your Heart

As I am contemplating my message, inspired by the quote above, a random thought crossed my mind  that it reminds of the Capital One commercial which asks:  “What’s in your wallet?” A corollary is “What’s in your heart?” Imagine that at […]

Where You Look

  Singer songwriters are my heroes. They take thought and inspiration and turn them into magic moments. As a writer and poet, I am fascinated with the process they go through, but have not yet immersed myself in the songwriting […]

Spice For Living

While I was visiting my friend Dianne in Sedona, we perused neighborhood yard sales on 11/11/11/, since she was searching for fireplace tools.  We were guided by signs and arrows pointing the way to places that might have had what […]

Mirror of Life: Kayla Finlay

      I have known of Kayla Finlay for many years and our paths intersected, weaving in and out of those ‘overlapping soul circles’ that I so love to celebrate.  She is a dynamo with a gentle spirit and […]

The Flower Of My Heart

                                                                                         Holding the book, The Flower of My Heart: Expressing Love to the World Through Art, I can feel the love resonating, reverberating, oozing, radiating, pulsing through it and from it. At the risk of sounding like a human thesaurus, […]

One-The Event

                                                                       In a few days, a pivotal event will occur that will have people either enciting fear and anger, creating more separation and polarization or standing together in world wide connection, embracing unity and heralding a time of peaceful […]

How’s Your Love Life?

                                           I received this quote special delivery via email this past week: “Whenever you see love coming, welcome it with open arms and let it enter into you. People will ask, ‘Are you in love?’ You will say, ‘No, […]

Cardinal Knowledge

                                                                             I have long been aware of the messengers that come in all forms, including those of the animal world. At just the right time, in the midst of life inquiry, they have shown up.  Winged, finned, scaled, furred…it […]

Go and love some more

                                              One of my favorite  movies is called Harold and Maude. A classic made in 1971, it features a quirky relationship between a young man named Harold played by Bud Cort who is obsessed with suicide and 79 year […]

Blowing Some Love

                                                                      I received an invitation to connect with someone on facebook the other day that tickled me. This was a man who had a poetic way of expressing himself as he requested ‘friending’ me. At the end of it, […]

I Would Love

                                                                              The marvels of modern technology meets the simplicity of guitar and voice of Lee Coulter, a young man whose origins are as eclectic as his musical tastes. According to his website, he was influenced by Ray Charles, The Beatles, […]

Complimentary Love

                                                                               Even though I am chronological adult; at age 52, one of my favorite radio programs is called Kids Corner played on WXPN 88.5 , broadcast out of the University of Pennsylvania.  The ‘big kid’ host is the ever […]

Talk To Me Like I’m Someone You Love

What if you had at the ready, a portable tool that could succintly express in writing what you might not be able to say verbally and could have a powerful healing impact on any relationship? In the midst of a […]
