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.

If for some reason you are unable to attend Rosh Hashanah services this year, due to illness or for some other reason, please feel free to listen and meditate with this podcast offering Thursday and Friday morning: roshhashanah2014:5775.mp3 When I speak of looking around the room at other members of the congregation or standing with them to hear the shofar, take time to look at the people you love, who care for you when they are near. If standing is not possible for you, recline in your bed long and straight, listen for sounds in your environment, birds, passing cars, the wind or rain that invite you to wake up and pay attention.

I Heart Macro Week 35
Warm air and ice collide.
Through mist and unseasonable rain, unreasonable thoughts worlds, words whirl. A
raw thaw, naked as the trees, you stand shivering too. Where is the sun to
separate the shadows from the light? Plow passes on a distant road, thunderous whoosh
of sand sullied slush, clearing a safe path for travelers.
Tomorrow the gloom is supposed to lift, sunny with balmy temps in the mid 40's… such odd winter weather. It will be good to get outside and take a walk, after the arctic blast and now the rain. This body needs to move to release tense muscles and clear the fog in my head.
It is time for YOU to share the love up-close with YOUR
I Heart Macro offerings!
Enjoy slowing down with
your camera, paying full attention, observing beauty and curiosities many
people pass right by. Your generosity of spirit and keen eyes may open the door
to miniscule miracles and mirth others would not have access to otherwise. Feel
free to include poetry, prose and thoughts your macro photo or series
inspire(s) in you. Writing is completely optional for participation.
Straight out of the camera (SOC), edited, color, black and white; anything goes
as long as you bring the viewer near to whatever it is that drew your heart's
attention and "woke you up" to full presence.
