The Gift of Keeping the Light in Your Eyes Ablaze

While I love giving (and receiving) gifts, the present I most earnestly wish to share with others, especially my daughter, is to keep the light of their eyes ablaze with the flame of life in its zesty fullness! Honestly, by FAR one of the things I have the most angst over is how well I’m doing by … Continue reading The Gift of Keeping the Light in Your Eyes Ablaze

It Will be Fantastic Because It Will be Together

How are you doing in these dark times? I feel deeply the heaviness, sorrow, and angst of this season, and often want to just stay in bed. Know what I mean? That's why I believe it's SO important than ever to remind you: YOU are FABULOUS! Just the fact you've made it through 8+ months … Continue reading It Will be Fantastic Because It Will be Together

Revolutionary Love: We’re Just Getting Started

At the first yoga class I taught this year I said 2020 was going to be awesome because we'd be able to see things clearly. 🤣 While "awful" is likely a more apt descriptor, it occurs to me we are seeing more accurately than ever before. There's something about things falling apart that knocks sense into us! I know … Continue reading Revolutionary Love: We’re Just Getting Started

Celebrating Life: The 12th Anniversary of the Day I Should Have Died

Today is my 12th rebirth day; as on 11/10/08 I should have died after a nightmarish chain of events led to me plummeting 30 feet off a cliff, headfirst onto a boulder. While I'm always hesitant to share this, "don't be boastful" says a voice in my head, I decided to anyway. 🙂 Aside from "12" … Continue reading Celebrating Life: The 12th Anniversary of the Day I Should Have Died

Glowing in Grace

As much as I crave more of Will Farell on the cowbell, what I think we could really use more of these days is GRACE. Inspired by the immortal words of U2, I'd say: Grace finds the goodness in everything and everyone. Grace transforms ugly into beauty. Grace gently carries the burdens, wrongs, and shame … Continue reading Glowing in Grace

How Sweet it is to Live Simply!

Oh, the stories I could tell about how gorgeously geeky I was in high school! For instance, when we learned about the Know Nothing Party in U.S. History, I immediately adopted this obscure 19th century political party as my own. I'd jokingly tell friends I was a fellow Know-Nothing! 🤣 Still, there's something about that name that resonates, … Continue reading How Sweet it is to Live Simply!

My Journey from Violence & Death to Peace & Life

Growing up I was fascinated with wargames, and I’d spend hours with friends play-pretending to be soldiers. As a boy whose dad was in the army, this was normal. YET, the thought of actual war and death totally terrified me—haunting my dreams and keeping me up at night. “Interestingly”, somewhere along the way my horror … Continue reading My Journey from Violence & Death to Peace & Life

Being Your Own “Alarm Clock”

Something awesome I've noticed this year is how smack dab in the middle of the suck and muck, I've witnessed countless people become her/his own "alarm clock". Friends and family are waking up to their deepest desires, honoring the most excellent wisdom residing in each of us, healing their personal insecurities and judgments, and seeing and … Continue reading Being Your Own “Alarm Clock”

The Little (BIG) Things Love Does

Above is a picture of Love! You see my low back is a bit wonky, so I sleep on my side with a small pillow between my legs to let my back release. The night of the pic I got home a bit late after getting together with some friends. So, in it you can … Continue reading The Little (BIG) Things Love Does
