Gathering Words

When my first son was born, a dear friend gave us a lovely book called Frederick by Leo Lionni.

Let Love Reign

What would our world look like if our energies were focused on LOVE over fear?  What would our world feel like if everyone was given equal respect, rights, and compassion?  The Buddha once said, “All that we are is a result of what we have thought.  The mind is everything.  What we think we become.” [...]

New Year’s Evolution

Sunday marked the transition into the new year.  The calendar year changing provides many an entry way to set new goals, visions, and dreams for the days and months that lay ahead.  Visions of finally picking up that hobby you have been dreaming of for years (insert hobby here… playing guitar, learning another language, sewing, [...]

The Gift of your own presence…

The season of giving is upon us.  Mother Teresa once said, “It is not how much we give, but how much LOVE we put into giving.”  We can easily make mindless purchases and give without much thought and care - gadgets, trinkets, jewels, sweaters, books, or even our time, energy, and donations.  What would the [...]
