JOY

Awaken to our own joy!

Sometimes meandering down a new path brings us unexpected magic…

just as writing from a clear space gives a fresh perspective.

BEING ALIVE

Seems like it is necessary
to remember…

the magnificence
of our being alive

of living
of loving

Who we are.

High Five to Your Triumph!

I AM so excited to continue this journey of writing with you. Today. Here now in this amazing moment of being alive…as I sit in sunshine with my golden girl. I feel so much gratitude.

YOUR WRITING

6BD35DD8-5EDA-4553-A736-2BD3A0304F35

“For many of us writing creates its own course of direction…”

It is a force all its own.
Taking us the writer on a journey that we may choose to share or not.

We as a writer may command this creation… 

of self expression
of the telling of the story
or orchestrating a melody of poetic narrative.

Wherever it leads us it is up to us to follow its insight…

Where else can one wield such power?
If not for the use of one’s own words?

Writing does not need to be about slandering the ignorant
or judging an uninterested party.

Writing can provide a way
to be our own active participant in our life…

of which from an outside perspective
we may also appear as an observer.

MAGICAL JOY

9952970E-4665-4988-AA78-BF09351D1182She lives in the magic of my joy…

As another month marks
the day that my Angel Bailey’s
physical body took its last breath

her spirit lingers longer within me.

As I let my grief wash over me
I am feeling both sorrow and love
That girl she sure knew how to love.

She gave hugs freely. She squealed with such delight when greeting those she adored. 

As I continue to make my way through the process
of grief I am knowing
to share her passing with you
as part of my healing journey.

It is hard when faced with such a loss
to open oneself up
to accept sympathy and well meaning words
of condolences.

Especially from those who think that a dog
is just a pet rather then a member
of your sacred circle
of unconditional love.

Now that I have had time
to see her empty bed space by our front door
to still hear the tinkle of her dog collar as I walk…

I begin to know that her spirit is never very far away.

She gave me the greatest gift of joy that will forever be imprinted on my soul.

High Five to My Angel Bailey!
