water be water

the day winds
like a river by
light and darknessScreenshot 2016-09-05 12.00.43
shadows and sun
the hours pass
into roar and huff,
buzz and sweetness
hello day brimming over
fortune and folly
foolery and fluff
the river
it rolls by
voracious and vixen
soft and subtle
let the water be water my friend
let it wind you down stream
inevitable as gravity is
to the god of your choosing.

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.


if I could be one thing
let me be happy to be here
no matter the circumstanceScreenshot 2016-05-18 12.39.14
no matter the stories I tell myself.
if I could accomplish one task
let it be
to smile and breathe into
this moment
and feel fully alive…
with the gratitude of one
who knows
how precious this moment is.
And then to remember
and again
and again
till it becomes
more of who I am
than all the distractions and stories
inside and out
Screenshot 2016-05-18 12.39.14Let me swirl into
I am.
the miracle.
the blessing.

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.


Let the world rest
Just for a momentIMG_2094
Pay no heed the great ideas
the fears
the hopes of ever getting it right
The automatic noise of restless banter
And remember

It is enough to just be
Ragged and rowdy
Rumbling along

You are enough
Just as you are
In all your splendid and polished imperfection

As the mist settles across the horizon


All good

today I am right where I’m supposed to be.
How do I know?
because I am here.IMG_2051
I breathe in, I breathe out
for even the seemingly unacceptable parts of my life and me.
my finances, yes, I have money!
my body, yes, I have an amazing body!
my relationships,yes,  I have beautiful relationships!
my home, yes, I have an awesome home and spot to dwell!
ahhh, All is well.
Slowly but surely I come to all good.
rain, sun, clouds, heat, cold, all good.
from here I allow my awesome day to unfold
with ease and perfection
even when I dont see it
I know it is true.
All good.

If these old walls could speak


I’ve been looking at this video every day, saying goodbye to the big glorious home that my parents loved so well; letting go, letting be. What a huge transition for me. I am honoring this time to feel into my growing and evolving, to witnessing the elder in me slowly peeping it’s head out.

I commit to easeful integration of this transition and bless all that has happened in this house, in this town, in my life with two remarkable parents who I know did the best they could, just as I am doing.

God and Goddess rest my soul upon this knowing, that all is well.

Summer solstice

I’m home. Hello Santa Barbara. Hello little home. Trying to fit the new me into the old box. Went through photos, old clothes, instruments. feeling into the sands of Santa Barbara after almost a month of absence. Who am I now?trees and sun

The hills are drier. The air is thicker with the morning cloud cover. I saw a few blue jays, told them about their relatives in Rhode Island. Loud, noisy, beautiful birds you are. Took Shystie for a walk. The doggies are doggies, I’m me; a little discombobulated, not use to this location shifting life. The garden is alive but not happy with my absence. Summer. Summer. Hello summer.

I went to the park. saw some of you guys, saw alot of you guys actually. Summer solstice. The brilliance of the sun is upon us now. Thank you Santa Barbara for welcoming me into your arms. Thank you home for holding space through my absence. Thank you doggies for remembering me and wagging your tails at the sun.

The longest day of the year. The shortest night. May the joy that you are be illuminated by the brilliance of this day.

sunsetSummer solstice. May that sun be your strength, might the world hold your heart.
And might this world be a better place for the moments you have lived here. And might you know that is so. Even now.

Happy summer solstice.


There are forces beyond my control. I gotta remember that. waves
My mind is trying so hard to figure this all out. Then sometimes, there is a knowing that just hits, often times first thing in the morning after wrestling with something all night.

I have my opinions, and so does every body else. I gotta remember that.
I forget and remember my sense of enlightenment. I dive in and out of entitlement and entrenchment. Like waves on the shore I am remembering my humanness and my godliness, breathing in, breathing out.

Breathing in love to myself, breathing out love to you.
