dear sweet one

Dear sweet one
Have I told you yet
How precious you are to me?
How your very presence in my life

has burst me into song
flowed rivers of ryhme
Rainbows round every corner

Have I let you in

on the constant mundane sacredness I find
In that soul-stirring yes of your being
Just you being you?

How it brings me to my knees in wonder
under the sun filled blue

Seeing the dance of light
In every sparkling leaf

every reflection?

All In sheer remembrance
of that one drop

my reasonable mind.

the joy pool


Nothing need be done
nothing need be spokenangelcloud
nothing need be given or taken
I wish the highest expression
i wish that for you
I wish that for me
i wish that we each find our own little spring of comfort
that trickles down from the pool of joy
I wish that we constantly live that for and with each other
re-ignite the truth of who we are this moment alive
a big smiling yes, to breathe, to love,
to deeper appreciation
of this unfolding and unknown moment we step into
and if ever I forget
i hope you can gently remind me
about the joy pool
a loving caress of angel wings

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.


love is on my mind

love is on my mind.

the closeness of love as it intertwines us and circles around us. the love I feel for my friends and family. the love of the earth that wells up and embraces me, the love that pours down from the sky every moment. the love that is so thick we smile to move through these moments on this precious planet whirling through open creative expression.
thank you love.
thank you love.
Everywhere I turn

thank you love.

little joy moments

I love the sky. Screenshot 2015-09-12 23.34.57
I love the clouds.
I love that I can love.
I love that I can start my morning
with love.
I want to feel the joy of love;

make it a habit to dwell there through my day
I want I find the joy in little moments and curious places
I want to remember even when it doesn’t appear spontaneously that that joy is always there.
I want to grow in my comfort of being in that love and joy.

Yes, this is a good day
A good life
A good moment
To fill my little joy cup.

I love the sunrise

I love the sun rise
I love the color of the light through the curtainsIMG_5062
spreading golden softness across the room
I find love in odd places
a word, a breath, a bottle cap, a smile
I am full of wonder
as the leaves gently greet me from the big oak
in a great gathering of sparkling
The air is full of summer and sizzle
triumphant big yes and yes again
I open to that big yes
I open to this day softly rising
And with this tender whisper of breath
I offer myself into awakening

I wish you to honor
the peace that is there inside
to stop long enough
to notice
all is well.
all is well.
the sun rises, the sun sets,
the sun shines, then clouds come,
sometimes it rain…
the earth turns
trees grow
all is well.
nothing need be done
except the cultivation of joy
if that is your wish today
in peace.
the silence within.


blessed wet

rain rain
beautiful rain

blessed wet
cleansing waterrainy
the trees
the gutters
hear the falling
falling falling

rain rain
beautiful rain

blessed wet
cleansing water
the rivers
the sky
my feet sloshing
hear the falling
falling falling

rain rain
beautiful rain

(oh yes, and do a little rain jig while you’re at it)

Fabulousness 2015

2014-12-18 15.39.06I appreciate the sky the earth the plants the clouds the trees, oh yes! I appreciate my hands my smile my breath my mind my heart my feet my tummy my eyes my words my body my Dad his life and the gift of his presence i appreciate my presence my learning my love the heater, the day the air i breathe.

I love my life! I love that I can find unconditional joy. I love myself I love this bubbling joy I love my friends, my family, my son, the Possums, my classes, students the oceans the wind…
my intention for this year is to find that unconditional joy, to water it with the light of my attention and open, to cultivate that presence and that being and see the beauty that is all around and within me. That my music and teaching go out into the world and joyfully fill the earth with great light and love and happiness. I commit to my joy. I allow it to unfold in perfect harmony.
