Peace Walking

20160514_120002

Peace walking was never mystical or miraculous

or even based on a special ray of light,

but simply allowing

the forest

or the mountain,

or even that sparkling ocean

to permeate our being,

filling us so amazingly

that we are lifted,

made stronger.

Let it go, and walk tall.

Our Spirits Will Still Speak to Us

100_1499

In this age where beauty and revelation are wounded

from disease and fear,

our spirits will still speak to us,

as if oceans still lived in our frames,

and as strength filters back into us

we will be confident once again,

standing tall

even in the mist and the ruins.

Happy Mother’s Day

20200407_134902This year perhaps more than any other, we need to honor and thank our Mothers.

Thanking them for who they are, and how much they mean to us. She not only carried you in her body,

but in most cases she has loved you as only a Mother could. She has carried you, in her heart.

You will always be her child.

And this year there are even more Moms out there as warriors, fighting a pandemic, many on the frontlines,

trying to provide for their families, some without benefits, many without the wealth, or luxury to stay at home

behind a computer. Make sure you thank them for their service including…

the grocery and retail store workers. And there are so many more…..Maybe give them some flowers if you can find some.

Happy Mothers Day everyone!

And thank you to all the Moms. We are all in this together!
