Little Beginnings

I try to read but I only turn pages. A drifting mind cannot land and my heart wonders. My fingers are busy searching, desperately searching for a new song that will hold my mind a captive of its rhythm. Hoping for something– anything that could pull back my wondering soul. Where is it flying to…

A Stroll in the Garden

I am blessed with a few hours to myself alone this week while my daughter is in the Vacation Bible School this week. Because it won’t allow me to be at my yoga studio in time, I decided to spend this week outdoors as much as I can weather permitting. On day one, which was…

The Flow

I sit here on my balcony planning my day. Wondering how best to use this blessed day, I look up at the sky. It all depends on the weather when you have a small toddler. I check my weather app. The air quality is excellent and the partial clouds will shield us from the burning…

Spring Day

Every day, I discover something new as I get to know this land. Wild flowers are in its fullness adding new colors to my yard. Yesterday, I found Lemon Balm. It was a joyful surprise, a perfect gift from the nature to heal my anxiety. I immediately picked a handful of leaves to make some…

What do you value?

The way we spend our time says a lot about what we value. For me, observation of sunrise and sunset is one of the most valuable times of my whole day. It’s the opening and closing of a very valued book. It is a sacred encounter in the deepest and most meaningful way. The sun was…

Blue Sky in my Head

      I drove around running errands yesterday. After the sky poured out snow flurries, it revealed soft fluffy clouds still hanging up in the sky. After the heavy snow clouds have purged, what remained was pure lightness. I could almost feel the light brush strokes of the artist capturing the cleansed scene of…

Therapy for Life

Sun rises make me so happy, especially when I find myself being basked in the first morning light in the countryside. This is the way life is supposed to be. Every time I come to the country house, I feel my soul finally letting her guard down, feeling free to be herself, which is pretty…

How Would you live then?

How Would You Live Then?     What if a hundred rose-breasted grosbeaks flew in circles around your head? what if the mockingbird came into the house with you and became your advisor? What if the bees filled your walls with honey and all you needed to do was ask them and they would fill the…
