I am an echo

the great canyon
reflecting off of

I touch all
who send me
both forward

split yet connected

Remember the Time…It Was Your Birthday?

The Waiting

Remember the Time Blog Hop: Birthday Edition

I find myself in strange but familiar territory lately. As usual, I am putting it on the kid (doesn’t that sound better than blaming it on the kid?). Her birthday is next week and all of a sudden the Pinteresty beast has been awakened in my belly.

Great Ideas

Source of Inspiration


Where do great ideas
come from? Does our
minds create them from
chemical reactions
in our brains, or is
there a Source from which

Why are some people able
to bring forth exceptional
art, music, ideas, while
others seem to plod

Creativity is a beautiful
gift we are given. It
expands as we use it, as
we open to new possibilities,
allow this flow to fill
us and manifest through
us. It is triggered by desire,
intention, longing that seeks
fulfillment. It can come forth
in most arenas of our lives
if we are open to its call.

Listen to its call in your life.
Consider how you would enjoy
it manifesting, then pursue
it with the joy you were
meant to have in its expression
in your life.
