Good Morning!



The mother of Mitchell Louie sends me this, this morning.  It is worth checking out if you are interested in uplifting stories on cancer.

The medical world  will try a new "chemo cocktail" on Mitchell and he and his family are doing amazingly well.  They are inspiration for us all.  I am in awe.

This is on their blog posting for today.

“To the world you may be one person, but to one person you are the world”.

Doesn't that feel good?

I am well, and still absorbing the weekend.  One thing we did in the sensing workshop was to work with the top vertebrae, a bone you cannot touch with your hands, but you can touch the occipital ridge, the area on the back opposite the eyes.  You can awaken that area and even see it as a mouth.  What do you want to say from that side of your being?

Thomas Paine had this to say.

"My country is the world, and my religion is to do good."

- Thomas Paine


That, too, works for me!

Tears -

On Saturday, I felt a few tears and wondered about that.  I have so much to be grateful for, and then, I realized they were tears of joy.  I am so grateful for life.

May we all breathe in the essence and joy of life.  Sometimes I get caught up in "things" and forget, and today, I celebrate the gift of life, yours and mine.

I am so glad we are alive and bouncing here.

Poem -



 

what speaks -

 

 

what beak do I wear now —

parrot or crow —

hawk or quail —

songbird or a place

where wind is not twined and wound

on form

silent as the air

before it nests

in change.
