A long day

Tired, I read.
Tired, I eat.
Tired, I listen.
Tired, I smile.
Tired, I talk.
Tired, I bathe.
Awake, I sleep.

A letter to Monday

Monday, you have passed me by. When we meet again far along in the future will I look different or will I remain the same?

Goodbye Monday. I'll see you again next week.

non-creation vs. creation

Obsessed with creation - the idea of it.
So quick to define, title and sculpt.
But, what if you waited.
Don't create.
Just wait.
See what emerges.

Refreshed

Spending time with my creative soul sisters and family over the last few days has left me nourished in a way that only transpires from communing with cherished loved ones. As I look back at the photographs, we are smiling.... All the time. Such exuberance pinging back and forth among one another, creating and radiating a field of beauty, innocence, love and fun.

A rare experience I think it is to find such magic interwoven among those closely tied by blood.

Refreshed I am.

I have tasted the purity of the sisterhood community which I trust to guide me towards a more truthful way of living.

To be continued.....

Who nourishes your soul?

Books for Bartica

Have you ever felt the call to take action on something important to you?  That is just what Sarah Zanoni is doing with her Books for Bartica project.

On a trip to Bartica, Guyana in 2010 she visited the local library to find that there was not much of a book selection. In her words:

"Can you imagine a beach without sand? A cherry cola without fizz? A pop song without "baby yeah" repeated frequently in the chorus?

What about a library without books?

This was my experience in the spring of 2010 when I visited Guyana, South America, and came across a lovely library in the village of Bartica. The staff was friendly, the kids adorable, and the library itself was large enough to house several hundred books.
However...
Aside from a few paperbacks placed sparsely on near-empty shelves, there were no books!!"

..........

"The gears in my brain starting chugging into motion. What if I collected books when I returned home to Wisconsin and somehow, in some way, transported them 3,000+ miles south to Bartica??"

And that is exactly what Sarah is doing!! In effort to bring more options to the library patrons of Bartica, she is collecting books over the next two weeks. To learn how you can help, or to donate books, visit and follow her blog.
It is inspiring and contagious when someone acts on what is important to them. What have you been inspired by lately?

Thought of the Day: Be inspired by others!

preparing to leave now

Paralyzed you were
Day by day
Living a little more honestly
Seeing again

random thought # 1

When you are doing what you love  you don't notice the commercial seasons. It is only ordinary living that makes one celebrate the holidays.

A New Month

A fresh start. Amid many false starts trailing behind me. Round up a new collection of habits and begin once again. One awkward thought lost to another, like the dream that doesn't exist clouding my mind. Again.

Thought of the Day: New start. False start. Today and again tomorrow.
