If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

The Meeting

field“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
Jalaluddin Rumi

Can we meet there?


Writing Love

Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for. — Ray Bradbury

The Helpers

So I put my purse on top of my car to unload books from my back seat. Trouble is…I forgot that it was up there and drove off to volunteer at the book bazaar. Oops. It was only after pulling into the VIP parking lot that i realized that i no longer had a purse. bummer.
Long story short…after retracing my route twice while mentally listing everything I would need to replace, my neighbor greets me with purse in hand as i pull in my driveway. A couple had found it on Youree Drive and brought it to me!!! Awesome! I don’t have to cancel credit cards and replace a driver’s llcense etc..
Only one little problem…my cell phone is smashed. Kaput! So if you want me to have your number again (or even for the first time) would you please pm me?

The couple who returned my purse own Mr. Rogers Landscaping company.

Today’s quote:

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”          Fred Rogers

Winged Energy of Delight







As once the winged energy of delight
carried you over childhood’s dark abysses,
now beyond your own life build the great
arch of unimagined bridges.

Wonders happen if we can succeed
in passing through the harshest danger;
but only in a bright and purely granted
achievement can we realize the wonder.

To work with Things in the indescribable
relationship is not too hard for us;
the pattern grows more intricate and subtle,
and being swept along is not enough.

Take your practiced powers and stretch them out
until they span the chasm between two
contradictions…For the god
wants to know himself in you.

Rainer Maria Rilke


Build the great arch of imagined bridges…


“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.”    Caroline Myss
