Hmm there's something that I have been noticing for weeks now and I keep meaning to blog about it  and then as usual get completely distracted by something else.      Then a couple of days ago I had a client coming in the afternoon and I knew her husband was in Spirit.  I...

I worked an Expo yesterday and I am amazed as ever at Spirit's capacity to love their people and their tolerance at explaining why they are showing us things, what they know we are doing, and why they want to add or contribute to our lives. I have to say I also understand WHY we need to be...

I meditate daily.  Usually it's an early, early morning affair when graylight is caught sneaking past the sky's edges. Well, that's from mid April on.  Sunlight fails to appear in winter on some days until almost 9 AM, hours after I've meditated, hours after I've reported to work. ...

Smile. Laugh. Grin. Chuckle. Giggle. Sing a gleeful song.  A new day is being woven together. Apricot and rose is spilling across a clear sky over a green land.  I've been bouncing around through my energy.  I feel like I keep falling into a hole and digging myself out and the...

Like most Bostonians, I’ve been glued to the television this past week, watching the events of the horrific Marathon bombing play out. I’ve become a devout couch potato, from the initial announcement, with the image of the explosions replayed over and over again. Then, the speculation around who...
