Stuck in traffic?
Think of it as following your bliss!  

 Joy is right up there with Heart’s Desire
listen to Luciana Williams she has some down and dirty ideas for what to do when some one takes your joy.

Poem To Sage

Sage

photo

before dawn

before dawn

arriving before dawn with the song of the dove
arriving at the edge of the earth
with nowhere else to go

crossing the Arkansas River bridge
with its wooden board exploding like fire works

sage escorts me to the next world
color,
scraggly plant
wise person
act of purification

entering her presence
I slow down
breathing becomes a prayer
blessed and blessing
thanks be to sage.

Margo Rody asked us to write a poem using a powerful sensory word I chose sage not knowing where it would lead, It became a prayer.

Nurturing Thursday: Sing, Dance, Meditate Twice as Much

Someone once asked Mahatma Gandhi:
“What do you do when you are too busy to meditate?”He replied:
“I meditate twice as much.”

meditate

meditate twice as much

We can add: If you’re too busy to sing or sing twice as much with friends…

Sing

Sing

or dance twice as fancy

Dance

Dance

What would you recommend we do twice and much?

Wonder Wednesday Challenge: Connectedness

“Not Separate is any creature or object–from the Light”. Hafiz

photoImage

photo 1 How are you connected? 

Once long ago after a small but traumatic accident I felt like I couldn’t get back to being “myself”. I received a card with a heart that had a small crystal in the center, and every day for ten days I used that as a focal point for meditation. I began to think of it as “aligning with Light”. I came back to myself-connect with myself. I was healed and here many years later these words from Hafiz the Sufi Master fell into my lap this week. Perhaps a reminder   I need to rekindle that practice. I hope my words and story are of use for you.

Have a wonderful Wednesday

What reminds you that you are not separate?

I’m “connecting” this with the Wonderful Wisdom of Becca Givens’ Nurturing Thursday

Wonder Wednesday: Where Do You Go?

There is a place

There is a place…

There is a place you can go
where you are quiet,
a place of water and the light

on the water. Trees are there,…

~ Wendell Berry ~

Wonder Wednesday has escaped me over the busy holiday, probably a time I needed it the most, but today we return to turning our attention and intention to Wonder!
Feel free to use this image and these words as a doorway into meditation and or a writing.  I would love to here about your quiet place. If you post a response I would  enjoy seeing it just share a link in the comment section.
You can find the entire poem at Panhala It is a fine site that will give you a “Poem a Day”  I highly recommend it.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday

Wonder Wednesday: Who Is Welcomed At Your Table?

WELCOME TABLE

WHO WILL SIT AT YOUR TABLE

WELCOMED  TABLE a place to wonder

Welcome Table Contemplation

Chairs scattered here and there waiting for friends to arrive

are you a welcomed friend at your own table?

No matter who shows up

show up for yourself,

this I tell myself.

Roses grow where they are planted

if you treat them right.

Seek the soil of kindness and joy

 for your self and all those around you.

Bless all who enter and give thanks.

(Is that Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks singing lead?)

According to the choir director of Jonah and the Wailers (seem below) the old Gospels song The Welcome Table originally was a Jewish idea.  Good idea for this year’s, once in a life time hybrid holiday of Thanksgiving and Chanukah.

Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving and Chanukah To You!
