DREAMS Take Flight


Let your dreams take flight… She said

Whatever dreams you may have. I invite you let them take flight. For some of us that may mean letting our dreams go and creating new ones. Or simply trusting that the time is now for us to “take flight” ourselves. 

Dreams Take Flight 

Something shifted inside of Her.
Peace filled the places where fear had kept Her locked within HerSelf. 

She began to dream and believe in HerSelf.
Her dream took the first flight.

As I held my dying friend’s hand for the last time
I wondered what dreams she had also let die.

What dreams had she held onto that never took flight?

I knew as I walked away from telling her good bye
I would no longer hold unto my dreams…

I would set them free as I realized just how much
life force I had yet to give.

I would begin writing my journey to Triumph!

And, So She began.


Remembering 13 March
six years ago today

As I awaken gently
I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and well being.

As I walked along the river with my golden angel.
I felt my heart expand and touch the heavens.

It was only moments after sunrise
when I had awaken.

To learn that my dear friend
had taken her very last breath.

The earth sighed.
The eagles had taken their flight home.

I carried thoughts of her in my mind
repeating the tapes of yesterday.

How long had I watched her hold on?
Never wanting to give up.
To fight until then end.

She gave me the determination,
To listen to what is real and true for myself.

And I began again to write
with a passion well deserved.

Heaven and earth met yesterday
As you passed from this life, unto the next.

Thank you for the nine and a half years of friendship
watching eagles together and talking of health and life.

My vitality merged with your failing body.
My sunshine met the darkness of your disease.

Today we can all gather to remember you
As we each knew you to be.

Until we meet again
I will look for you when the eagles takes flight
returning late next fall.

So that we may soar together once again.

Amy M., my fellow river warrior and dear friend.
I send you every blessing for this moment in time.

May you find the courage to let dreams take flight… She said 

High Five to Your Triumph!

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!

Before You


“The world before you, unknown.”

You stand.
As you are.

Awaken with the magic of what lies ahead
beginnings full of endless possibilities.

The world
before you.

Shrouded in the uncertainty
and endless possibilities.

You have climbed this peak before
but never has the light and fog

created such a world
of pure joy.

A world all its own
before you.

Above the clouds
where dreams dance freely.

Can you see that from where you stand?
Guided and surrounded with love…

as your world lays before you.

Cheers to the triumph of your journey!

Free To Fly


As she sat across from her dear angel friend celebrating together, she leaned in to say,

“I feel like I am on the edge of something…I don’t want to fall down. Ever again.

Or go running & screaming back to where I came from.”

Her angel smiled widely and replied back, “You don’t have too. Now you can fly!”

You are Free to Fly!

Dare To Dream


Why are we afraid to dream?

To dare to create
a world where we are happy
doing what we love.

Being that which we are…

Daringly brave.

Dare to Dream.

What is Your Story?


each soul
has a story
to tell.

In the sharing
of ourselves
we give birth
to our dreams.
