It’s 1:43 am

Silence awakens the Sleeper.
Falling snow beckons.

Outside under Full Moon
Doing Kinhin
Coyotes sing the Iridescent Darkness.

There is nothing else. Just This.

Silence Awakening…

Just This

You made it.
You are here.

Breathe it in…this newness.
Pretty wonderful, huh?
That’s it. That’s all there is.

Just This.

Our Future Self Lives Now

Our Future Self Lives Now

How does living in the moment help us move forward?
Because there is no tomorrow,
Unless tomorrow is now.
Just now.

It’s now that you take the step.
It’s now that you update your mission statement.
It’s now that you uplevel your programming.

It’s now that you walk curiously into your dream…
And live the life of your Future Self.

It’s now.
Just. This.


I Did It! I Met the Deadline!

I Did It! I Met the Deadline!

Or did “I”?

Mac brainstormed another way to hold and apply the brush.
Lydia advised which type of canvas was best and why.
Brittany gave me protected space.
T-Bird showed me the Aisle of Iridescence.
David reminded me to unplug. Totally.
Dr. Sam aka Simmone coached me to get to the other side.
Catherine rephotographed at the last minute to meet the 7″ x 7″, 300 dpi requirements.
Zana was my listening ear when the gremlins needed to be put onto the back parking lot.

“I” didn’t do it. It was the Strong Mountain Mandala that did it.

“I” was just fortunate to be at the center of the mandala this time around.

Everything Is New Today

Everything Is New Today

Everything is new today
Freshly born
Ready to be Seen
And Smelled

Underneath it all is the Awareness of Life
Are you ready to experience it?
Are you ready to be freshly born?
