Precious Light

14 Jan

There is a preciousness in winter

Crystalline scenes everywhere

Purity revealed as I pay attention

And see

Pure Joy

13 Jan

Sunrise sweet, streaks of limitless amazement, a gift in the making – to me, to all.

I listen, absorb…

I see it anew, again – virtuosity, true colors, perfect pitch, warmth, light.

Of being.

Peace today

12 Jan

I light the candle

I pray for peace

I watch the wind take snow into the field, birds fly in/out, trees – stark, steadfast – full of sacredness. Sky revealing new light into this day.

I send out another thought: May we be peaceful and happy, from stillness know joy, dive deeper into kindness, grace.

I want to see the kindness. I want to meet you in kindness. I want to listen, be listened to….Ok – step-by-step to goodness. Optimistic. My heart settles. I recognize true white Light.

It all reveals – the resilience of the Self. Truth in gentleness. Strength, clarity in simplicity. Snowfall into purity. Resilience in unbreakable integrity. My voice, the song, the truth in silence between the notes. The tone of freedom.

The candle burns anew. Flame to true light:

In me. In you. Burst of beauty, settled song

Of life. Om Shanti: May all be at peace.

Living Lightly

5 Jan

Candle flickering, streaks of new Light touch the sky, glistening new day. Depth of soul revealed in this stillness.

Now I know:

I can go deeper into the music of my life.

I can step forward into creativity.

I can risk being new – again, and again.

I can heal into a new mind – clarity and power.

I am it all, a painting of goodness – true, spacious.

Settled and Sure in the virtuosity of

Being. Giving thanks for this day, this place, this life.


26 Dec

When I look through these trees I see devotion, steadiness.

The sky. The earth. My own body. Connection.

We are all intertwined in Love.

New Light

21 Dec

My panicking heartbeat can’t save the world. So I listen, say my good words, remain, say my Peace, watch the ebb – and flow – of my life.


Settle into the goodness of what is.

I can settle. And open to my strength.

And rejoice when the orange sky appears through the trees, silhouettes reaching – revealing the new goodness of this day.

It lifts me up, settles me in Light, this place, the earth. Streaky light of beauty. Rising.

The goodness that expands into my true heart – the one that remains steadfast and courageous, kind.

The one that can save the world – at least my tiny piece…. that connects to another… then another…

And reveals our truth together.

I believe in the goodness in all.

May all be at peace.

My Birthday

19 Dec

Celebrating this day! The sky, the trees, this place, all beings, Light and Love.

Deepest gratitude for all — friends, family, all the circumstances that have allowed me to be here now.

The journey continues…

May all beings be peaceful and happy,

May all beings be strong and healthy.

May all beings be safe and free from inner and outer harm.

May all beings live in joy and ease.


Everywhere Amazing

1 Dec

Everywhere I look – my window to the sky – is inspiring, true, amazement. Receiving all love from the universe.

So much Goodness

20 Nov

In the afterglow – ever still – I know Peace


Closer to the surf – rising, washing into shore, settling into new sand castles of richness.

Song of my heart. Clarity of Life.

I rediscover the place of my youth, but it’s different now – so much goodness in the majesty of the dune – strength, courage, shifting change, letting it be.

Total Love

Of the land and sea

And of me.

Center of the earth,

Reach of the Sky.

Purity of all this Amazement before me, beyond me. Inside me.

Retreat notes

17 Nov

The sea is calm now

As am I.

The breeze plays with the leaves, final cascade of letting go. I watch the grace before me.

Then I come back – confirming my own grace of being.

Yes. I’m me once again.

The path to the beach glows orange. Trees reveal new light of this day.

Yes. I can do this now… whole-ly being myself.

Thankful. Powerful. Settled. With my own glow. Of my life. In my life.

Dancing, swaying, flitting, laughing!

Into now

Always now

Now it begins


And again

And again.

We came together

And cast our hearts in circle

More powerful now.
