Hope Finds a Way


Even in our fractured spirits hope finds a way, finds an opening

so that we begin to long for the healing,

allowing the peace to take over

as if we were the ocean



with sunlight.

Lifted to the Sky


As I walk along the beach, sensing the rhythm of the waves,

the depth of the horizon,

and the brightness of the sun,

I allow peace

to free my being


I am lifted

to the sky…..

Filled with Power and Beauty


“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” 

Booker T. Washington

Wishing you great success today as you overcome obstacles, inspiring others with your courage!

May your sails be filled with power and beauty!

Our Democracy


Yes, I still love my country, but I don’t believe corruption should lay hidden simply because leaders carry the name, “conservative”.

Think they’re Prolife? Nah, pro life people don’t treat migrant children that way.

He’s been a con artist since Day 1, and you’d better start caring, because we all stand to lose……our precious democracy.
