Sacred Letting Go

I picked you up today - the ashes of your life in such a small vessel for such a large and radiant man. I know this is not you, yet, it held you so well, so gracefully through all the changes you sustained and the lessons you learned in your 96! year walk on Earth…

11 Days

❤️ 11 days. For 11 days in hospice, you taught me about life and transitions and love. You taught me about true guidance from Beyond even while here, as you reached through the Veil to guide and direct and hold. My knowing and faith and my hope and conviction of the heart are clearer, are stronger.…

Letter to My Children

My Dear Children,The language of the heart is so limited when it comes to expressing in words, written or spoken. What my heart longs to tell you would be much better done in person, alas, our time is yet to come. I sense you want reflection sooner than that.I can’t tell you what choices to…

Leaning Into It

Mothers Day Gifts

Today is titled “Mother’s Day” here in this country…a supposed holiday where we are all expected to honor our mother’s. It is the day when the most flowers are purchased, the most phone calls placed, and the most restaurant reservations made. I wonder how much of this is done in obligation, and how much is…

Confusion…

--  Mahatma Gandhi once said, "Confusion is that place between adventures." Oh, yes.

Going through my own changes at this moment, I sat this morning at…
