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.

I Heart Macro 54
ever so humble
elevated in the eyes
of those who look close
Like a child I
delight in dandelions before the rain... and after.How grateful I am for quiet focused attention; in simplicity and stillness I am called home to the present moment. For a few blessed breaths, worries drift away. May it also be so for you.
Hineni. Here I am. On this the fortieth day of Counting the Omer Rabbi Yael Levi writes: "Grounding ourselves in the moment through gratitude and awareness…Opening to the call of our lives…" Then she goes on to teach a meditation practice calling ourselves back to the moment with the word Hineni. Here I am. I do this often when my mind wonders into thoughts and worries when sitting in meditation and throughout the day. Photography has also become such a practice for me.
I wrote my blog post before reading her words for Day 40 last evening. I am grateful to be in alignment, to return again again, comforted when I become lost in the wilderness of worry.
