SELF BLAME

I’m irritable when I’m tired. I’m impatient when I’m hungry. Loud noises, bad smells, and big crowds can wear me down. But I made it through loud holiday celebrations, crowded airports, and a kind lady sitting next to me on a plane that continued to pass gas throughout the flight. Haha! (True story.) ¬†Though I’m - Read More -

YOU ARE LOVE

All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop. -Kabir This holiday season, I was very fortunate to be able to celebrate with friends and family in Texas.

LOOK WITHIN

There is no fire like greed, No crime like hatred, No sorrow like separation, No sickness like hunger of the heart, And no joy like the joy of freedom.

Look at that rainbow. It is only when the sky cries that you see the colors in the light. -T’ao-Shan   Recently, several dear friends have “lost” loved ones.
