The calmness within

A sense of calm

There are some things that you just can’t take your eyes off of. Like these stone sculptures. There was something about their still presence that captivated me. Someone had spent the time to find the right-sized, right-shaped stones that could be aligned perfectly. Stacked them up. And then left them there for others to...

Sunset on the beach

Sunset on the beach

Have you ever walked on the beach around sunset? It seems other-worldly. The mist and the light conjuring up a surreal scene. So fragile. So serene. People soaking in the last rays of the sun. Reveling in the beauty of the moment. Some, like this woman, staring into the endless ocean. Seeking answers …...

Living well

Live Well

What does living well mean? Most people start quoting scriptures when answering that question. Being moral, doing right by others, thanking the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. You know my views on religion, so needless to say I don’t subscribe to a lot of what is “preached.” But I do think that as we...

A journey of self-discovery

The journe to self-discovery isn't easy

I sat in silence. The sky engulfed me. So did the greenery. It was a meditative state … hearing nothing but the chirping of the birds. The sound of the breeze in the rustling leaves. The smell of grass. Everything kissed by the sun. I was at peace. As I cocked my head to...

An inquiring mind

Thinking

A couple of my posts in the recent past have triggered some “interesting” in-person/offline reactions — people have said that I am “too philosophical” or that I “want to live in an ideal world.” I’ve been told some of these issues don’t concern them (or me, for that matter) and never will … so...

I would appreciate if you’d extend the same courtesy to me when commenting. Watching Religulous last night just made me realize how we give a...

To let: a healthy womb

Surrogate Mother

Two recent cases on surrogate adoptions have had me thinking the last couple of days. I’ve learned from the experiences of two very close friends that motherhood is almost like a rebirth for a woman. It’s more than just a physical roller-coaster ride – it’s an emotional voyage that springs new life. For the...

True love

Meetinf of the Minds

Love to some is like a cloud To some as strong as steel For some a way of living For some a way to feel Some say love is holding on And some say let it go While some say love is everything Some say they don’t know… Love — the one emotion that...

I appreciate you

I Appreciate You

I appreciate your honesty. I appreciate your quiet support and your vocal critiques. I appreciate your non-conformity. I appreciate your silent love. I appreciate your determination. I appreciate your patience. I appreciate your forgiveness. I appreciate your sharing your life with me. I found myself telling my husband all of these things in front...

Love and Valentine

rose

Everywhere I look today, from the “$1 = 1 kiss” signs on the sidewalk by some ladies raising money for a local charity, to the $9.99 talking teddy bear decking the aisles in Walgreens, love is unmistakably in the air. Not many know the history of St. Valentine’s martyrdom, yet millions of people around...
