Wild Abandon

Take your shoes off. Go outside. Feel the earth under your feet. Throw a tennis ball for your dog. Admire the trees and be thankful for the oxygen they give. Look up at the sky (not while driving … haha). Laugh uncontrollably. If there’s even the slightest chance of getting something that will make you…

Look for Signs

A few years ago, I started looking for signs. But not your basic street signs. I’m talking about signs that the Universe provides when you ask for them. Try this experiment: Ask for something small to start with, like seeing a red flower, a butterfly, or a certain color of car, etc., as you go about…

Pennies from Heaven

On my recent visit to Tucson, something happened that proves the Universe obliges us and that what we focus on expands. My Mom lives in a residential care home and hates the food there so every day when I went to see her, I would stop at the grocery store to bring her some goodies….

Some of What I’ve Learned

It seems to me that life is the best teacher and, as my readers know by now, I believe there are no “accidents.”  Everything that happens to us holds an opportunity for evolutionary advancement.  Will we recognize it?  I didn’t use to. Now it’s different.  I’ve learned some things I want to share with all…

Burning Question

While on my trip and just being a tourist, I decided to do a little street photography and this is one of the images.  The background was somewhat busy and we were being bustled along by a crowd, so I didn’t have a lot of time to take the shot. What struck me was that…

Ye Olde Bicycle Rack

This is a bicycle rack in front of a restaurant that I’ve been to often and never even noticed it.  Normally I park in a different spot but today there it was … right in front of me.  The designer made it look somewhat old and yet new because the handlebars look like a 10-speed….

Let the Magic Commence

Tonight I waited for a while to see what would show up even though I had already taken my shot for today.  I’m glad that I waited.  My favorite time of day is when the sun starts to sink in the sky, creating a magical dreamscape with the clouds.  The sun sets; the moon rises….

I Want to Be More Like Matt

There’s this really cool guy out there, traveling the world, breaking down barriers through humor, love and dance.  Take a look:  The Unstoppable Matt As for today’s photo, a little Friday humor is in order.  This is called “Getting My Ducks in a Row.”  The weatherman says we might get some rain this weekend.  Color…

About Tomorrow …

 Yeah we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.~ John Lennon Tomorrow is World Liberation Day and the super moon of 2012.  So what exactly is World Liberation Day?  Millions of people around the world will gather and visualize the liberation of our planet and her inhabitants … healed ecosystems,…

The Cheesecake Event – What to Choose!

Today you get two for the price of one.  My husband and I decided to “ditch school” and just go have some fun.  So it was off to one of our favorite restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory,  for some lunch and dessert.  Yeah, I know you’re probably asking “what happened to your low-carb eating plan?”  The…

Feet, Don’t Fail Me Now

Yes, these are the shoes I wore today and my feet are exhausted.  I spent the day implementing some big changes in the lives of my mother and stepfather.  They’re both 88 and we are having to move them to a new place that can provide the kind of care they need until end of…

The Best Entitlement Ever!

Today’s photo is part of a stepping stone we have in our front yard and as I saw it today, I realized that happiness is the best entitlement ever … it’s a free gift from our Creator.  So here are some of my favorite quotes on happiness: “He who has not learned to share his…
