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.

A post written by a dear friend, who I’ve known for 33 years, inspired this poem. That’s a long time to be connected to someone so precious. We live on opposite coasts and have for quite a while. There were many years through which we had lost touch, but with the magic of the Internet found each other again. And I am so grateful for that!!! From the time we were young teens he began to teach me lessons in mindfulness. In college he gifted me with the sweetest book, The Tao of Pooh. (I still have the copy he gave me!) At a time when I was feeling lost and without hope, believing I was broken beyond repair, he told me with absolute certainly that I was whole…complete in and of myself. I’ve never forgotten his words, or his compassion as a very young, wise man of 20 when he said them.
This is for you Art♥
many streams lead to the very same ocean
vapor rising toward heavenly realms
clouds rain light-infused tears
kindness showers graciously
upon faces and hearts up-
turned with humility
in open surrender
present if only for a single breath gratitude unfolds a soft petaled prayer emerging newborn wet from lips salty and sweet soaked by the light-infused tears
