This year will end on My Memories of A Lifetime
I will Honor my Parents and their Struggles and instead of a Tree inside I will have a big Fir Limb standing in upright.

Decorations for her limb were the very meager .. but she had…

To Earth and Back
Earth as gateway and portal
When we enter Earth, we are most connected for this is home, where we live and from which we come (our seed, our source, our center).
We know it by the feeling of being-at-home where we are with friends. It is a…

The rain stopped for a couple hours today so went out on my bank where the trees I planted have grown over 20 foot tall and used all my limbs and natural habitat to create a shelter on the highest level of my once terraced bank, which will give this new resident shelter from the high storm winds in the winter plus it stays pretty dry as all the rain goes down the bank.. But if it gets to bad I may later put a eco friendly tarp over it and anchor it down.. Have watched this little critter for…Continue

Guess that picture says it all
The fun of making mistakes
Is when you try to make it right
But the changes never change the outcome
Cherished those mistakes
Taught me gratitude
and a real appreciation for life
looking at ourselves for a moment
For a moment we’re totally connected to ourselves. Time slows way down. A fraction of a second feels like a minute. We have solid eye contact, but we're not seeing with our eyes. In fact, we’re not really thinking or feeling anything.
We enter a territory where we see by TOUCH (as seeing with…Continue

I know how blessed my life has been
I have lived a life where real love exists
Filled with compassionate, caring Brothers and Sisters, Husband, and Family chosen and blood.
Yet again I face the fact I will again this year lose more of those I love and have given me love.. One goes into the hospital before Thanksgiving and is now talking about earning his wings, his struggles have been many and his pain only a few could imagine.. a lifetime spent in the Navy Seals and other…Continue

WHO SAYS WE CAN'T?
The only sure way I know of not worrying is to be in love. So why can’t we be in love all the time??? WHO SAYS WE CAN'T?
Is there some LAW that says we can’t? Does being in love always hinge on something “out there”? Are we doomed to be a puppet of an uncertain future? Not even the weatherman knows what…Continue
