I desire to make this a priority practice.
We are not connected. We are one. There is only one of us here.
Privacy and quietude before the comings and goings. Time for journal. Readying to return to my wonderful job after a wonderful vacation.
The White Stone ceremony at my Unity Church. I’ve led the meditation for several years, except last year, I didn’t appreciate how much it means to share in this until it was gone. I’m readying myself as we speak to help my church family release and let go.
This is a difficult day. Sometimes we rush through those to just “get through”. Even though I’m in a painful place, I’m going to be fully present to everyone I encounter. They are all blessings.
Doing my morning gratitude work. The quiet before the girls gets up. After a great workout. Alone time with my amazing husband.
I needed this in this now moment. Amen.
I was mourning it being a little too late in the day. I missed the dawn chorus. But, it’s Sunday and it’s so quiet. 7:45 am and no cars. From the highest balcony off the house, in our densely tree-lined yard, Nature is showing off. Insects (Cicadas and crickets), the waterfall in the creek, then a series of chirrups, a series of tweets, now it’s a cacophony… I wonder what all the fuss is about, lol.
The moon was so full and bright last night. It was like a big spotlight. At our new home we have a lot of tree cover. The yard is so dark, even with the full moon, there were a spattering of stars. What a gift.
I’m a day behind on the practices. But they’re unfolding as they should. I was looking up and I couldn’t see a cloud. Then, I thought maybe I’d go look at some pictures. But as I kept looking up it hit me that it’s overcast so the whole thing is a cloud. I went to the front of the house where I can see the mountain and it’s bathed in a beautiful fog blanket. I always feel so Serene when I see this blanket. That’s so fleeting. In an hour it will be gon...

I have a beautiful balcony off of my bedroom. The reason I purchased this home is the awe inspiring bald Cypress that lives outside my door. I call this my adult tree house. I am sitting here, close to years, simply being in it’s presence. It’s become my friend and confidant. I vow to protect it and it’s neighboring siblings. I am firmly aware of it’s being-ness.
I haven’t written on paper in so long… But, I’m drawn to that idea as well. There’s tangibility in a letter or even a little sticky note. For the 4 others in my home, I think each one may get a special little gift today. For my husband love is a massage, for the middle child is hangng out on her bed… I needed the reminder to demonstrate my love.
Many things. Lately, it’s special moments with my husband… A walk, a cup of coffee.
