wild and untamed

Mira and her friends on the right side of the tracks???

"God is like a tsunami. We just never know what we're going to experience. We've turned Christianity into a dull, dry system, and it's as though we feel we have God in our pocket, sort of at our beck and call, and we can kind of pull him out as our little pet.
God isn’t like that.
God is wild.
God is definitely untamed."
- Tessa Bielecki

I am grateful to be alive!!

spreading the light

Our friend Logan Robertson took this picture when we were on vacation at Sunset Beach.
He gave me permission to post it here.
Isn't it beautiful???? He has a gift!!
Hope you like the quote below!!!

There are two ways of spreading the light:
to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

My dad took Macy to the Indian's game last night and she got to meet mustard.
They stayed after the game to get autographs from players.
hope you like the words below.

The door to the Divine Presence opens
when you no longer need to make reality fit your pictures of how it should be,
when you can surrender everything you think you know

and come to each moment empty of expectations.

When you are able to surrender in this way,
you realize
that God is not some abstraction, but a living presence in your life.
It is the breath that animates all forms,
the ultimate inclusive understanding,

the quintessential blessing of love on all things.

artwork and picture by Mira :)

Relationships are assignments.

They are part of a vast plan for our enlightenment,

the Holy Spirit's blueprint by which each individual soul is led

to greater awareness and expanded love.

Relationships are the Holy Spirit's laboratories in which

He brings together people who have the maximal opportunity for mutual growth.

He appraises who can learn most from whom at any given time,

and then assigns them to each other.

Like a giant computer, He knows exactly what combination of energies,

in exactly what context, would do the most to further God's plan for salvation.

No meetings are accidental.

Letting Go

This a picture by one of my favorite people, Todd Parr. He makes me smile.
I think I am learning to let go :)

"We must give up our will, give up control, and release our expectations about a specific result. This is where the going starts to get tough. We want what we want, and usually we want it yesterday. We need to open ourselves up to the possibility that we don't always know what's best for us."

Admit something:

Everyone you see, you say to them, "Love me."

Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise

someone would call the cops.

Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.

Why not become the one who lives with a full moon in each eye

that is always saying, with that sweet moon language,

what every other eye in this world is dying to hear?

This is a picture of my boyfriend, Bobby Weir. He is coming to see me in Columbus on July 5th and bringing his band RatDog. :)
hope you like the quote below.

"Dream of the sun dreaming its worlds.
Sing till the song throws out root,

trunk, branches, birds, stars.
Sing until the dream engenders the spring at

which you may drink and recognize yourself and recover."

The Unknown

“It is this belief in a power larger than myself
and other than myself which allows me
to venture into the unknown and even the unknowable.”
~Maya Angelou


Mira and Marko's guitar lessons are a respite for me.
I hope you like the quote below.....we are connected!!!

Our natural state of being is in relationship,
a tango, a constant state of
one influencing the other.
Just as the subatomic particles that compose us
cannot be separated from the space
and particles surrounding them, so living
beings cannot be isolated from each other
... By the act of observation and
intention, we have the ability to
extend a kind of super-radiance to the

letting it flow

How can a man's life keep its course
If he will not let it flow?
Those who flow as life flows know
They need no other force:
They feel no wear, they feel no wear,
They need no mending, no repair.

Here is a picture of the puzzle we put together on vacation and then my attempt to draw it one evening. I think I would like to take some drawing lessons this summer and then maybe my tire won't look like it is falling off of the car. :)
have a great day and enjoy the quote below.

My friend Traci took this picture.....the second trip to Sunset Beach was even more beautiful than the one 4 years earlier. hope you like the words below.

of the day may contain a clandestine message addressed

This is a picture taken by Logan Robertson....it is a picture of his parents walking on Sunset Beach on Thursday. They did not know he was on the pier taking this picture.
Isn't it beautiful???????

"He who learns must suffer.
And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls,
drop by drop, upon the heart, and in our own despair,
against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God."

Macy, Andie and Tiki-Tiki

The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the Beloved all around me. -Ram Dass

Well we are almost done with our vacation.
Sunset Beach has to be one of the best kept secrets around.
Have a great day and enjoy the quote below.

If you want to be fee, you must have the courage to be yourself
even when others judge you or disagree with you.

and you must respect the right of others to be true to themselves,
even when they push your buttons.
You can't be free if you are allowing someone else to
be an authority for you.

or if you are trying to be an authority figure for someone else.

I love this poem....sometimes I see this world beyond....and sometimes I am in my ego and can't. Today I can. :)

The Privileged Lovers
by Rumi

The moon has become a dancer
at this festival of love.
This dance of light,
This sacred blessing,
This divine love,
beckons us to a world
only lovers can see with their eyes of fiery passion.
They are the chosen ones who have surrendered.
Once they were particles of light
now they are the radiant sun.
They have left behind
the world of deceitful games.
They are the privileged lovers

who create a new world
with their eyes of fiery passion.
From: Love Poems of Rumi - Deepak ChopraTranslated by: Fereydoun Kia Edited: Dr Deepak Chopra


On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.” -Jules Renard

The Ocean is a beautiful place to recharge your soul.
Have a great day!!

Seek out that particular mental attribute
which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive,
along with which comes the inner voice which says, '
This is the real me,'
and when you have found that attitude,
follow it.

--William James

Yesterday was the first day of summer break.
Marko had a cook out and homework burning party.
ahhhhhh little boy energy is so different from little girl energy.....
but oh so beautiful.

causes an emotional contraction within you.
When you let it be, without naming it,
enormous power is suddenly available to you.
