I am so very grateful for the written word and what it's done for me over the years.
Deadlines looming in the near future feel like I'm about to leap off the edge of an Olympic diving board with a dead weight attached to my feet.
No matter how old they are, knowing my children are going through hard times makes my heart ache as much as, if not more than, if it were me. However, no matter how hard it is, I'd rather be in the loop than not be.
Life, love, connection and Oneness, is not only about the good stuff and the joyful moments, It's also about the not so good and painful moments and everything else in-between. One can't exist without the other.
A Calgary situation has made me realize how some people are absolutely clueless as to when or how to support family and when they should just get the hell out of the way.
Tonight I feel fortunate I live in Canada and I feel deeply for the people who live in Mexico and in Patricia's path.
How the simplest things in life bring me the greatest pleasures. Seeing an older couple walk hand-in-hand. A child laughing uncontrollably. A hot shower after a hard days work. My cat trying to get my attention by pawing at my face.
A deer running free.
A sunrise or sunset.
how life used to be.
