Spread the message

It is easy to just keep doing the same things over and over. The routine. Yet each day is unique. The day should not be a rut. The relationships. The connections. The unfolding legacy. Each day is an endangered species. Each day you can begin again.  Each morning the sun rises and there is unlimited […]

New year thoughts.

Every year the ritual takes place. Farewells and resolutions.  This time it feels different.  It feels more. Maybe the health issues this past year added to the  drama of life. Open heart surgery I guess gets its point across.  We are strong and fragile at the same time.  The ultimate human paradox. So how to […]

The unexpected.

It is always there. Sometimes lurking. Sometimes kind of even expected .  But not.  The unexpected. Not have to be bad or good. Just not anticipated at that moment in time or in your life.

The hero’s journey

We are all on one. Each of us. There is always a challenge. An obstacle. Sooner or later we are confronted with it. Our moment of truth. Are we victim, observer or hero. It is so easy to turn away. But we must not. We must face our challenge. There is that high noon moment. […]

Hour of the Wolf

The clock ticks. So choices must be made. Decisions occur. Consequences result. Let go of the old…it is of no purpose. Release the successes and failures….they are in the book so to speak. Reframe and refine what you mean to you and what you want to mean to those who matter to you. Then just […]

A state of grace

There was a time when being gracious was a given. For some reason being gracious seems to have fallen on hard times. Winning with grace or losing graciously seems to be a lost art form. Maybe it has to do with having a moral compass. Maybe it has to do with having a noble sense […]

Magic

Magic. Do you believe in it? I don’t mean magicians on TV or in shows. I mean real magic. When you consider it all, our life here is quite magical. Here we are. How did that come to be. The sun rises. The moon effects the tides. Yes, I know there are scientific explanations for […]
