Whimsical or not..

From the array of colors
To the multitude of acts
Nothing stays hidden
Everything is portrayed

Mesmerized in thought
Perhaps it’s to contemplate
But once up on our feet
Life is an act to balance
Even if on the rim of a coffee cup!

How similar to our daily reality
We rationalize, we theorize
Yet when there’s action
The heart and all its color is called on
So the spirit can fly!

Then sometimes we hang on for dear life
With chalice in hand!
If only to dive in headfirst!

We move with our season and terrains
Leaping and swaying
Reaching and praying
So thank you, dear friend
For all in one shot
You portrayed mine and your life
Like only the artist can!

  1. The point is to figure out the point! Why are you here!
  2. I find happiness in the little things that make me smile, perhaps its a memory, perhaps how someone made me feel, perhaps its what I have learnt…
  3. Inspiration comes from hope. Hope is the seed of all beginnings and a nurturer for me.
  4. When lost I return to that which makes me feel found, today this is meditation and yoga, experiences that connect me to me..
  5. I live with my regrets by forgiving myself for lack of understanding and clarity and weaknesses in self esteem and self image.. these are the things that make us susceptible to doing things or not doing them that create regrets in life..
  6. Sadness like any feeling has to be worked through, so I cry,  I feel the sadness and then I look beyond the sadness and realize that I had the opportunity to feel good about that which now makes me sad.
  7. If money was no object I would like to travel, meet more people see more beautiful things in this world and also give freely of the skills of have acquired to help feed the ailing and dying.
  8. What must I experience before my time is up? Pleasures of the senses beyond my current exposure, I hope that travel opportunities will bring this.. And to know that I have understood universal laws and nature to fulfill my time the way my creator envisaged I could.

  10. Who is the most interesting person I have met? His name is Bill Hubert, he is the founding creator of a brain/body integration program, Bal-A-Vis-X, applicable for use with people of all ages of most all kinds for functioning and disability. I choose him as he is a man who has shown incredible dedication to helping children as he began his quest to overcome the issue of kids falling through the educational cracks and getting lost in the system when they were neither bad enough or good enough to get the right help.
  11. My latest great idea is for a ‘phone check-in’ at my next dinner party this Saturday in an attempt to get everyone to be ‘present’ !! Wish me luck.

True Friendship

friends

When familiarity is not just comfortable
But holds intrigue and excitement

When comfort is not just being relaxed
But inspires belonging and respect

When intrigue is not just the unknown
But builds to expand growth

When excitement does not fizzle
But leads to new heights..

This is finding
One’s home
This is finding one’s friend
