I quote Saturdays -Solitude

`Solitude is that time of day when bursts of beauty so unimaginable, find you. Thoughts that feel bigger than you, have no power against that precious time where your truth can finally come out, where every breath is the simple awareness that you are alive and present. When I run, it is my time to…

I quote Saturdays – challenged

When I do not write, I feel challenged. As if i am off my axis. I’m happy to be posting just for today. Life is funny. It has an uncanny way of showing you how much time you waste. Over thinking, steeped in anxiety, path unclear and exhausted. When I am tired I step into…

I Quote Saturdays – Light

Light seeps in when we least expect it. Into all those broken bits, it trickles. Into corners it settles. Lifting, smiling, gladdening. When we are broken, when we have lost, when we cannot fathom, light shines bright, with hope, with love and with spirit. A New Year embraced in other parts of the world. A…

I Quote Saturdays – together we shine

Waking up this morning, after a dinner conversation with friends last evening, my positive energy snapped. I looked out to embrace the sun shining brightly, seeping into the smallest crevices of my home, casting shadows on my floor, reminding me to dust. A gentle nudge of light often renews energy. As I warmed up to what…

I Quote Saturdays – Women

As I watch election coverage reach a feverish high, I am reminded of how important my role is in making sure I raise my girls to be present, kind and unselfish in their attitudes, so the world takes on two more citizens that give to their community than take with a touch of entitlement. As…

I quote Saturdays – Silence

It’s been a while since I sat, away. In silence. Observing, searching, glimpsing my past and present. I am irritated, not relaxed, my mind isn’t silent or comfortable. I used to see and feel silence much more before I moved. New surroundings are wonderful and difficult all at the same time. It isn’t what I’m…

I quote Saturdays – Laughter

The what nots of unpacking have me in a slump. I’m mostly done. I like an uncluttered space, so I’ve hidden away some boxes for later( shhh) but I need something else. I need inspiration. I want to write again. I’m searching for words that flow, for thoughts to take over – a new rhythm…

I quote Saturdays – Courage

                              Finding courage when fear takes over is often my challenge. A needle in the proverbial haystack. Fear manifests its beautiful shape when there is change, when there is loss, when you think something is impossible. And yet, fear is really…

I quote Saturdays – Children

Children speak, nineteen to dozen, we listen, whatever their space, their day brings, it is always a story. If you listen carefully, there is in fact a lesson, something they’ve learned. I used to ask how their day was, they preferred to say it was okay, fine or just normal. I  don’t ask now and…

I quote Saturdays – Being Still

Being still is not an easy feat, the mind wants nothing more than to jump from March to May. To watch, observe and listen, opens the mind to awareness. Awareness leads to less stress, good health and happiness. If we could all just “be,” we would learn the true nature of ourselves. Eckhart Tolle’s books…
