I Fall a Little Bit in Love…

“I think I fall in love a little bit with anyone who shows me their soul. This world is so guarded and fearful.  I appreciate rawness so much.”

-Emery Allen

The bright light of each and every unique soul creates stunning and radiant beauty.  Yes, there is more than a little love in witnessing the raw essence of the individual beings that have offered me the privilege of knowing them well…

Love is Love

Equal dignity in the eyes of the law.   Finally.

My heart is singing and I am thinking of so many friends….  Love reigns, love rules, love is all you need, let there be more love in the world…..

Celebrating love today!


“A lifetime without Love is of no account

Love is the Water of Life

Drink it down with heart and soul!”





Before You Speak…

Ask four questions;

Is it true?

Is it kind?

Is it necessary?

Does it improve on silence?

This I understand is the Buddhist way of deciding whether to break a silence.  I think it vitally important and compassionate to consider all of these before speaking.  Words have power that resonate long after they’ve been spoken.  To take care and be impeccable with your word, as The Four Agreements teach us, is a loving way to go about our days.  Every hour I endeavor to do so – some days better than others…. It’s a learning journey we’re all on, so I’ll be kind to myself and others when we fall short of the mark.

The One You Feed

“An old Cherokee told his grandson, “My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.  The other is  Good.  It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The boy thought about it, and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf wins?”

The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed.”
