“The world is full of magical delight and #purejoy!”

The kind of joy that make your toes curl in delight a smile spread so wide on your face!

There is a longing
within us all.

A longing to connect to another.
To belong.

As the world beckons us outward during this season…
May we embrace and connect with ourselves.

Blessings to you!

Deliberate Steps


“Purposefully live in the moment. Take deliberate steps.” – Te’

Her steps
were deliberate
yet slow

Her steps
were deliberate
yet intentional

Every morning
she arose with
a sense of wonder

to walk to see “Her River”
with deliberate steps
where the river trail began

To take in the River
To see its beauty
To feel its strength

These deliberate steps
brought her her joy
her energy igniting her passion

To pause for a moment
before making her way
were where her journey

to her soul
along the River’s edge.

May you walk with a sense of wonder
as you take deliberate steps!

The words of lifetimes ago echoed in her body…like a tattoo branded in her mind. She knew. She had always known.

“Honour what you know to be true for you.”

So often we may not understand
or begin to comprehend
or even recognize

The divine nudge directing us…

To be there for another
To offer comfort
To create a space of compassion.

With our complete and full attention…
No agendas. No distractions. No rushing around.

Simply be present in the moment and listen.
With compassion.
