When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Winter Morning Palette
Soft glow of sun on snowy forest
Dark branches dressed in winter's white
Gentle curve of trees in sensual
Limbs reaching, embracing as they sway
An intimate wooded waltz I am privileged to witness
My heart beats in threes to music they
This limited palette cannot restrain my
imagination Nor my joy as I revel in this scene beyond my window
A few weeks ago I wanted to post my friend Toni Bernhard's link to an NPR interview, but it was postponed. Please take time today to listen to her beautiful wholehearted essay about Learning to Live a Full Life with Chronic Illness, as she reads it on NPR's Morning Edition (This actually aired yesterday, but I didn't have the link until later in the day).
Thank you Toni for being a light for all of us, as we learn to accept life's complicated dance with dignity and grace ♥ You have made your life a blessing, and it is an honor to call you friend.
