Blessings Abound

This morning I took a walk in the cold crisp air with some dogs I have the pleasure of taking care of.  I was struck by the profound presence of silence.  The loudest sound I heard was the sound of my own footfalls, my sneakers crunching on the gravel.  The dogs were much quieter than…

I was talking with a new friend yesterday about the land in Pennsylvania where I grew up.  When I was a child, I lived near a small town which was surrounded by miles and miles of rich, fertile farmland.  Then the developers moved in, like vultures, and stole the wealth of the land and kept…

I am currently caring for two dogs and a cat while their owners are away.  The dogs are healthy and fine, but this cat simply amazes me. His name is Johnny.  He’s very old.  He is missing a back leg (I think it’s a birth defect.)  He has diabetes and gets a shot of insulin…

“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” ~ Meister Eckhart Today was such a wonderful day.  It began with a long drive to the nearest hospital, a one-hour drive.  But it was a lovely drive because it was a straight road through the desert…

I have been noticing recently how beautifully my body supports the desires of my spirit.  Have you ever noticed this phenomenon?  Say, for instance, you are thoroughly exhausted.  You’ve had too much on your plate for too long and you very badly need a break from all the work and responsibility.  And then you get…

Today I am feeling extraordinarily grateful for clean fresh air.  As someone who is blessed to live in the mountains, I have been noticing lately how exquisite the air is here.  I can take deep grateful breaths and know that this air is good for me. Such has not always been the case.  For most…

Happy Autumnal Equinox! Today there will be equal hours of daylight and nighttime, so one of the things the Equinox is about is balance.  This could be a good day to reflect upon the theme of balance in your life.  Consider asking yourself these questions: Is there a balance between your inner energies (yin) and…

I am ashamed to admit this, but after several months in this gorgeous little mountain town of Colorado, I finally got out there for my first honest-to-goodness hike.  And by “hike” I mean no macadam roads, more than an hour of walking, in a woods, up a mountain, and probably should have brought some water…

http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/story/23425859/colorado-new-mexico-rainfall-totals This morning my heart is with the people who are displaced and in fear and grief from the ravages of the floods in the Southwest.  I’m also thinking of the people grieving the pain of all the losses of yet another senseless shooting.  And I’m thinking of the friends who are struggling with cancer…

This morning I stepped out the door and was immediately greeted by the song of the stream a quarter of a mile away.  This wasn’t a merry trickle, this was a song of full-on, operatic proportions!  This was a siren’s song calling me to investigate. I walked excitedly toward the stream.  It was swollen for…
