I’m making time to stop and see the beautiful flowers that are blooming like mad all over town.
Hiking through the parks and along the sweet walking paths around the Lake and downtown, there are so many gorgeous blooms. Summer is so short here – I’m glad they’re really coming out in force this year – and I’m appreciating every day of it.
What can you do for yourself today to honor the season you’re experiencing today? Visit a farmer’s market, dust off the bike and take it for a spin, lay in the hammock and pay no attention to the time, set up the sprinkler and embarrass the kids in front of the neighborhood… However you choose to pass the time, I truly hope you find the gift in every day you live.
Our stories are not so simple and we are not definable by a single word or a single phrase.
We are people who have lived through challenges and joys – we’ve reached out to help others and we’ve turned away from those who have hurt us.
I find an image can tell a more complete and compelling story than words alone.
If you’ll play along for a moment… Looking at the image above, what thoughts pop into your mind about this woman, her situation, her thoughts? How did she get here?
I bet your ideas are different than mine and just as (if not more, of course) interesting.
Imagery lets the imagination flow in any direction. And I’d love to hear what popped into your mind as you thought through this image.

When people go within to connect with themselves, they realize they are connected to the universe and they are connected to all living things. ~ Armand Dimele
There is a certain peace that occurs in the space where we’re left alone to think and dream and to just be.
And there is a certain magic that occurs when we come from that space of solitude and begin to intertwine creative energies to turn dreams into action and manifest a reality of beauty using the momentum that comes with accountability and seeing the light in another’s eyes.
To dream is beautiful – to bring that dream into reality is your choice… and, perhaps, your responsibility.
To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful… This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. –Agnes de Mille
May you find your music, your rhythm and your feet moving you through your world on this Monday, the beginning of your week. Today is the day to make a conscious choice about where you want your life to go from this point on.
