To Celebrate


“Every day triumphs that are cause for celebration!– Te’

Will you continue to celebrate your journey?
Your seemingly small but very brave steps.

Creating another adventure…
on a new path from where you are?

High Five to your journey of Triumph!

My Hero


“You have fought a good fight my dear friend!  You are now free to fly!” – Te’

For nearly thirty years she graced my life, as I graced hers…

“My learning took place in the quiet afternoons and Sunday mornings that I spent with my true teacher, Jean Lehnen. Her wisdom came not just in the few words she could muster, but the knowing of her heart that could be read in her eyes.

I was the one being taken care of those many hours I pushed her wheelchair down long hallways looking at art. Singing and listening to music together.

The leisure drives through the countryside and familiar neighborhoods as she would point at the direction in which she instinctively knew to direct me.

One of the only dozen phrases that she could say was, “Go and See!”

That would be her reply for anything in which I have asked the almighty question about whether to go down a certain path or not…”

“How does one fully ever know unless one “goes and sees?”

She found HerSelf
at a crossroads…

Standing. Looking
in all directions

of where she
may journey too.

Along came
an angel…

who asked to join
her journey.

they decided

to strike out a ways
for however long.

Sharing delight
in their connection…

to create magic
and celebrate joy!

High Five to Your Triumph!

I believe in angels on earth. People. Pets. Parents.
Those who come into our lives. Guiding us. Standing with us. Loving us.

Being at our sides… as we journey through life. For those angels in my life, you know who you are. This one’s for you! xo


Live. In Dreams Awake


“Begin again to live out your dreams…
One moment. One step. One breath at a time.” – Te’

Perhaps today with the sounds of wild life.
With the soft falling rain. The distance river.

I will let myself feel held.
In the knowing that I am not alone on this journey.

A journey that I have felt so abandoned. So alone.
And many times so afraid to live my dreams.

Not so much for fear of what lie ahead,
but “how” I am going to get there…

To where I am going.

Is here.

In this moment.
I pause.

To Live. In Dreams Awake.


High Five to You!
