Love is Longing

Sidewalk Heart ~ Trust that Love is on Your Path Love is longing and longing, the pain of being parted; No illness is rich enough for the distress of the heart, A lover’s lament surpasses all other cries of pain. Love is the royal threshold to God’s mystery…. The carnival of small affections and polite attachments Which litter and consume our passing time Is no match to Love which pulses behind this play. It’s easy to talk endlessly about Love, To live Love is to be seized by joy and bewilderment; Love is not clear-minded,... [Read more]

Trust Life

And just when I thought the day could not get any better, along comes my constant companion, my Totem since childhood. Doves remind us that we are strong during the “in-between” times (since they arrive at dusk and dawn when the veil between day and night is thin). Whenever I feel the slightest twinge of “some-kind-of-longing-I-know-not-what-exactly,” they appear and remind me to Trust Life. Trust Life.  Read More →

Just accept; don’t judge.

Empowerment is about really, really surrendering to the idea that you CANNOT control another person. You cannot will them to change, you cannot force them to do it your way, you cannot make them show up, love you, agree with you, or join your path.  Empowerment is about acceptance. It’s so very hard somedays. But the lesson is worth it.  I struggle often with this, but it is futile and ultimately arrogant. Empowerment is about releasing our firm grip on what we feel others should do and be, allowing them to be on their own journey, while... [Read more]

Take time to “see” the flowers

“Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time, and to see takes time – like to have a friend takes time.” ~~~ Georgia O’Keeffe look with new eyes You may wonder why I post lots of pictures of flowers — they are all from my own garden or my mom’s — who is 91. I feel in many ways just like the quote by Georgia O’Keeffe.  We rush by flowers not really stopping to take a close look at them — their beauty, form, shape, color, textures. Like Georgia said “to see a flower... [Read more]

I Just Cannot

I’ve been thinking about two kinds of inauthenticity lately.  The first is when we say we will do something when we think we really can and we really want to but we just can’t pull it off and we end up not doing it at all or avoiding it — and then hurting or disappointing someone as a result of that. The second is when we are unresponsive towards someone’s requests, phone calls, connections, or invitations, without telling them why — whether we have a good reason or no reason at all — we just ignore them. All... [Read more]

Hanging Around

Are you a wallflower? Do you feel bad sometimes about just hanging around in the backgound? Don’t. I happen to think wallflowers are very beautiful.  Sing all your colors.   Read More →
