winter solstice

Winter Solstice has arrived
on timid tender feet
Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 2:44 am PST.
Find your still deep silent spot of being
Let it anchor you for the new year

Today is the day
In fact the next three days
the sun stands still
in the shifting and changing
Be with that stillness.
Come into the quiet place
Rest in the darkness
Surrender to the knowing
you are
at your very core

love yourself through

it is a winding road, isn’t it?IMG_8099
on track, off track,
happy sad angry rejoicing
I’m learning
I’m learning
even the crappy stuff is vital
slow down
feel the terrain
love yourself through
love yourself through.

we are

our heart beats2015-02-27 09.18.17
it beats and beats
we breathe
and then again we breathe
all the while
gravity pull us down
deeply down.

it is law
that binds bone to earth
something beyond mind
something bigger and wider than words
move us in the world.

spaceship to mars
rockets tot he moon
we come back
we come back
we come back we do
the earth draws us into
her silent soil
our hearts, our breath
our feet to the earth
the gravity of alive
we are.
healing and holy
we are
just because
we are.

that love

I wish you the power
the power of love
the power to be in that love
and fiercely love yourself
like a mama bear loves her cubs
playful and protective,
cuddly yet strong,
grounded, certain and steady
as fires rage and the winds blow

a loveIMG_6701

that allows your spirit to be true
to you and shine
into the world
of persons places and things.
I wish you the power of that love.

breathe a little deeper

Each time I remembersuncloud
I will
breathe a little deeper
stand a little taller
smile a little broader
love myself a little huger
and allow that love to cascade to you
my friend
the world
whatever the heck I lay my eyes on
For I have this sneaking feeling
the universe
is there
waiting for me
at each
to laugh with the profound glory
I am we are it is.

recipe for world peace

my recipe for world peace:dogsmile
breathe in-love myself
(me, my body, my life, my moment)
breathe out-love you
(whoever is standing in front of me
or who or whatever I’m thinking about)
breathe in-love myself
(me, my body, my life, my moment)
breathe out-love you
(whoever is standing in front of me
or who or whatever I’m thinking about)
breathe and send love,
in and out with the breath.
repeat as often as I remember.
and as soon as I forget,
o yes, remember
repeat again.

today is the day

today is the day   IMG_6675
perhaps an ordinary day
but today
is a day like none other
new, fresh, full
today I notice
more than ever before
the goodness
the possibilities
the beauty
I notice the goodness
today I open to the goodness
that surrounds me
today I wish you well
and you well
and you well
today I wish me well
today is a day that I choose to fill
with all goodness that is
today i stop and notice
that goodness
inside me, inside you
all around.
today is the day.

poignant possibilities

sometimes i forget
how amazingIMG_6701
how new
how vibrant and full of power
this present moment is
sometimes I get carried away
in the tide of sameness
the current of events
the righteousness of my interpretation
and then
and then
I remember
I am whole
I am alive
I am worthy
and life is full
of potent and poignant possibilities.


i love me

I love me.
I love how wise I can be.
I love how stupid I can be.IMG_6112
I love how I try things
I love how I fall down
I love how I get up
I love the simple being that I am
I love how I love others
I love how loving who I am opens me up
to a whole world of loving and acceptance
for others brightness and fragilties.
I love me
and I love how this selfish love
allows me the eyes of love
to love you all the more.

the winter solstice

the winter solstice is today,IMG_6127
in about one hour, 8:49pm (PST) to be exact.
may the dark sky be the fertile soil for a new year,
a new way, a newness beyond anything you could even imagine…
may you give that opening into possibility to yourself this moment in time.
Open to the fullness of the void
let it penetrate and dissipate
any doubt or misgivings or unworthiness
that might be lingering in the shadows.
Know this, you were born to shine.
Let it be.
