Real Gift

The real gift we have been given is the gift of being together.

Re-set Button (feminine)

she discovered her re-set button early on & there were not many things that bothered her all the rest of her days just because of that

Fire Breather

When the fire has gone to embers, that is when I hope you will watch it most carefully, because all it takes is one breath.

Hard Fought

In the end, it wasn’t about who was right or who won, it was about standing shoulder to shoulder in the trenches and pushing together toward a peaceful world.


Life is not meant to give us what we want, unless what we want is to be broken open so the light can get free.

For Granted

It’s easy to focus on the things that are not going so well and forget that there is still so much to be grateful for. Like the fact we are a bundle of cosmic soup bound together by pure energy and running a 4 dimensional hallucination program we call consciousness. It’s neat.
