Solidarity

I’m flying the flag of Ukraine today in solidarity with the people there. May this war be over quickly. My heart is with them.

Ukraine has about 44 million people and has a democratically elected government. They have been an independent nation for about 30 years. Did you know that?

Some are surprised by Russia’s aggression, but we shouldn’t be.

No comments supporting Russia will be allowed here today. I will squash them quicker than a fly swatter squashing a fly. Was that strong enough? Russia is a bullying dictatorship. I do not allow bullies here!

Send some positive thoughts and prayers for Ukraine today.

Peace for Ukraine!

P.S. I should be back tomorrow with a new post, but this one is important.

Visions Replacing Shadows

In the healing of the mountains a lone eagle gave me courage,

suddenly being able to see now, with visions

replacing shadows

canyons were no longer dark places

and the sky,

we love the freedom of the sky

don’t we?

was so much closer,

I felt I could almost

touch the center

of where

I wanted to be.

P.S. Due to having some health issues I need share some previous work for a few days.

Courage to Be Who I Am

“You cannot have courage, without being vulnerable.”

Brene Brown

You see courage involves taking risks. And being vulnerable doesn’t mean allowing yourself to be mistreated or abused. It simply means taking the risk…..to be who you are.

I know that I am gentle, a tenderhearted soul and yes because of that I have been ridiculed and bullied. Yet I refuse to be someone else, not even for your reading pleasure.

I will continue to be a gentle person, embracing spirit, while wrapped in a male body….. simply being who I am. God made me this way. I am willing to take the risks and simply be…..me.

Peace to you.
