It’s natural to protect yourself from the elements, but you don’t need an umbrella under blue skies. The same is true in life and love. When you’ve been hurt, you naturally protect yourself from intimacy. You don’t want to go through it again. There comes a point though, when you let your guard down enough […]
                                                    If I were to tell you that you cannot fully love another until you fully love yourself, I would not be telling you anything you have not already heard. In […]
I saw this quote from Maya Angelou recently and it stayed with me. The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them. Its a hard lesson to learn. We want to be trusting and forgiving, but end up suffering when we see the signs but refuse to follow them. Most of us have […]
The 1940’s American classic It’s a Wonderful Life tells the story of a man (George) about to commit suicide on Christmas Eve. An angel intervenes, showing George that his life is significant and the world would have been a completely different place without him. It’s a roller coaster of a story, which got me thinking […]
Freeze frame simple moments of joy in your mind. Nothing is more important than sharing beautiful moments with people you love. Let love be your frame of reference. Let presence be your time frame. Let intimacy inspire you to climb the mountain of your dreams.
  In our family we have a saying. It started when our kids were younger (before they realized how awesome their parents are). We had some friends in the neighborhood and our kids played there a few times and loved it. From then on, whenever they were upset with us they would pack their bags […]

The more protective walls you tear down the more intimacy you enjoy. Put the big bad wolf of betrayal behind you and howl to the moon that you are ready for intimacy. You may have been hurt before, but now you are wiser and more self aware. Faced with the choice of protection or intimacy, […]
The best legacy a parent can leave is self acceptance. Teach your sons that size and speed may matter, but depth matters even more. Remind them that they are accepted just as they are. Teach your daughters that diversity is beautiful and beauty is diverse and that they are beautiful and completely accepted just as […]

Happy Father’s Day.

Good thoughts are great. Great intentions are good. A helping hand is the best. To feel the support of a friend is so empowering it almost feels like you are levitating. Both of you. Lifting up a friend is effortless and satisfying. It lifts your spirits to see them soar. It makes you stronger to […]

Surround yourself with beautiful, free spirited friends. Tie them to your heart so you never lose them. Use plenty of string so that you don’t confuse connection with attachment. If you choose to let go, accept that they might not return, for a balloon with no string has a life of its own.

Seed of Service

May 28th, 2012
Give thanks for the heroes and she-roes who went before you. You climbed on their shoulders to reach higher and become all you could be. Now your shoulders create the strong foundation for others to soar. All the way forward and all the way back, its shoulders, strength, sacrifice, sweat and service. We shall remember […]
I lost someone very important to me last week. I knew he was important, but didn’t realize how significant until after he was gone. Sadness kept reminding me with a nagging, empty feeling. Suddenly the world looked like a different place and it took a while to get my bearings. The words of the great […]

Seed of Connection

March 6th, 2012
Being honest and true to yourself may not mean having a LOT of friends, but it will lead you to the RIGHT friends. It’s better to be alone than in company that tears you down, and even better to find a small group of friends with a large degree of mutual respect. Choose great depth […]

Floating Mud Pies.

Show me a girl who meets a boy. A boy who doesn’t know how to steal a look without being caught. A boy who can only ever be himself, who hasn’t ever learned how to hide, only seek. Together they chase the chance to be. Once caught, they stare at the truth within the other. […]
