Unintentionally CELL Phone FREE

On my last trip for work I walked out of the house and was more than half-way to the airport when I realized I left my phone at home.  My first thought was, “do I have time to turn around, retrieve the phone and still get to my flight on time?”  The answer was an […]

Cleaned out… {a poem}

INDIA – is simplicity

One of my favorite days in India was when our friend, Hari, gave us a tour of his village.  First, Hari had the most beautiful, welcoming and kind smile.  In fact, so many of the people in Hari’s village and around India shared their smiles with us.  A smile is so simple and yet says […]

Varanasi: A 3-ring circus on caffeine (another glimpse into India)

Varanasi was overwhelming, over-stimulating, and over in three short days which at times felt like 3 long days.  It started with an early morning (5am flight) from Vadodara, passing through security staffed by guards armed with machine guns, looking for coffee and settling in to a very comfortable flight.  At landing we were greeted (not […]

Tears of Joy

During so many moments in the last year I have been awash in the feelings of being loved and supported by so many. It often felt/feels like a tidal wave that washes over my whole being.  Recently, I was sitting in a coffee shop and received an email from an old friend who just wrote […]

Pebbles

Aesop once told the story of a crow, half-dead from thirst, who came upon a vase with just a little water in the bottom. Try as he might, the crow could not reach the water with his short beak.  At the moment he was ready to give up in despair, he had an idea.  He […]

Smiles

“Some smiles are sarcastic.  Some smiles are artificial – diplomatic smiles.  These smiles do not produce satisfaction, but rather fear or suspicion.  But a genuine smile gives us hope, freshness.  If we want a  genuine smile, then first we must produce the basis for the smile to come.”  Dalai Lama   Recently I was going […]

The Universe Working

In the last post here, I wrote about a line from Mathew Sanford’s book, “Waking” about synchronicity and the universe providing.  I thought I would share a few posts of my own experience with this amazing phenomenon.  Maybe you will consider sharing a few of your own. This time I’d like to share how I reconnected […]
