and on we GO! That word “ON” was very carefully chosen… Onward hoooo

Everything is full of contrast… light and dark, soft and hard, floating and still, fast and slow…

Finding the middle is a challenge and fun… The only thing that is not contrasted is the forward motion. I am moving ahead and there is nothing that indicates one step forward and two steps back.


I can’t wait to see what happens with all of the movement.

Contrast + Motion - Rome 2009

Today I realized that I very often err on the side of ABUNDANCE. I very often make choices that fill my life with ABUNDANCE.

I often make more and make large and what I manifest can seem really HUGE
I don’t know or experience this as a BAD thing… very often many have a response to the bigness of this ABUNDANCE…
I don’t perceive this as anything bad… it is just a part of me.

Life is interesting, captivating and fun and filled with JOY when I am erring on the side of ABUNDANCE!
Today I will live in the largeness of ABUNDANCE and be JUICY and feel the JOY!


Sometimes all I really want is a small gentle nudge. Most times my mind and my being gives me a huge aggressive and demanding push. I never respond to pushing and shoving in a nice way. Points me to retraining myself to be move of what I actually want and a lot less of what I do not want.

Today I will be gentle and take it easy. I will listen to the truth of  what my heart wants.

Today fresh and new. 

Starting from yesterday where I had to take a step I did not want to take. I wonder what will come today and which step I will take…  I love this poem it is so on about looking inside to begin.

From David Whyte


Start close in,
don’t take the second step
or the third,
start with the first
close in,
the step
you don’t want to take.

Start with
the ground
you know,
the pale ground
beneath your feet,
your own
way of starting
the conversation.

Start with your own
give up on other
people’s questions,
don’t let them
smother something

To find
another’s voice,
your own voice,
wait until
that voice
becomes a
private ear
to another.

Start right now
take a small step
you can call your own
don’t follow
someone else’s
heroics, be humble
and focused,
start close in,
don’t mistake
that other
for your own.

Start close in,
don’t take
the second step
or the third,
start with the first
close in,
the step
you don’t want to take

Start Close In - Indiana Highway June 2009


Yesterday was about my different sides and how many of them are dual. Today is certainly about finding comfort in that duality.

Being barraged by both sides of a situation or problem can be very overwhelming.

For me there is a great deal of comfort in breaking everything down, being experimental and proceeding. I do take a lot of comfort in moving into action. There is very often success for me in the taking action. So rather than throw my hands in the air and become a victim of whatever is happening around me, I will break the problem down into manageable bits, and move ahead into action. There is always a result to this and I know that I am totally capable of dealing with the result whatever it may be.

Today Finding the Light.

Yesterday was a revelation and an inspiration. I got to find a little light in what I do and offer in this world. Working with a client I was totally touched and my heart was opened when they said” This is like going on a journey with my brother, we are discovering and learning together.”

I got to look inside, see my light, see the place in me that holds my heart and know that my heart was being seen and experienced for what is was being offered as.

Pleasure, inclusion and the unity and balance of being together. Being part of the Tribe and being together on the journey was reassuring and balancing for me. This simple statement offered me inspiration. I got to see my inner light as I guided another to seeing their own.

Excitement the totally JUICY state.

Cultivating and developing excitement and the glory of anticipation is a life long pursuit with me. I revel in the joy and pleasure of all that can be savoured in a prolonged period of excitement.

YES! This is all about SEX and YES this is all about living every day. I feel so much more, life force, juice and pleasure when I can be excited. Especially when my excitement is about what is happening, and what is going to happen and what has happened. I am in a state of JOY so much more often when I am excited and reveling in what is going to take place.

I can even feel this excitement about filling in a form and submitting documentation that needs to be painstakingly put together. I sometimes need to look at the far bigger picture to get the thrill in place.

Today I will feel all of the excitement about having a day. I will revel in the glory of what is. I will smile and enjoy every flash of pink and feel all the JUICE I have. This will be my challenge and my meditation for the day.

You are the primary creative force in your life.

It is out of your creative energy that you will manifest the world you so desire.

Fill the world with your Love. Play in the Love you feel. Live for the moment. Manifest yourself through the contribution you make. Trust in the unfolding.

Keep BEing the change you want.
Keep offering the light.
Keep moving and forging ahead.
Keep trusting that there are others and that they will be there to live on the edge with you.

Love – Light and Happiness

From a journal entry in mid summer of 2007

Setting Sail for Creativity - Hawaii 2011



attentive, aware, or careful (usually followed by of ): mindful of one’s responsibilities.


verb (used with object), -bod·ied, -bod·y·ing.

1. to give a concrete form to; express, personify, or exemplify in concrete form: to embody an idea in an allegorical painting.

2. to provide with a body; incarnate; make corporeal: to embody a spirit.

3. to collect into or include in a body; organize; incorporate.

4. to embrace or comprise.

Today is weaving both worlds. That of awareness and providing a body.  To weave this magic on more than one level. To be more able to weave this on physical, mental, emotional, heartful, erotic, intuitive and spiritual levels.

This is my goal, my dream, my desire. This is my willingness and action.

 Follow me on the Ecstatic Path

Today as I transition I will have lots of time to reflect with myself about what this pretty momentous weekend has delivered to me.

There are two elements floating in my being at this moment.

The first is if you want something there is no one more important in “getting” what you want that yourself. If I want something to change I will have to change to begin, inspire, create the change that I want…

The second is how shocked I was to see how difficult it was for me to feel and be a part of… I know that for those of you who know me this is pretty obvious; however, I was challenged to find my place in a group so diverse… at the same time I come out of this knowing that I will need to lead… So if I am a part of or not I know that there are several challenges ahead for ME to BE.

Love the universe at this moment and loving my place in it… So looking forward to what is unfolding for me and those I am near…
