Our Deepest Fear

Yesterday I did something I rarely do. I sat still for two hours watching television, more specifically, the movie Coach Carter. For me, it was a well deserved break from the current duties and responsibilities of reading (A LOT), writing, and researching. Equally, that two hours served as not only relaxation but also motivation and an urgent reminder of theRead More

While lying in the bed this morning I had a gentle reminder of a meditation shared on the prayer line in November of 2011 and again June 2012. My first thought was, “Why?

Imagine That!!!

After much cogitation regarding the prior year (2016), I declare with the voice of Mr. Thomas Edison: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”. (SMILING WITHIN & OUTWARDLY) Creative beings such as myself and probably many of you reading this post, typically venture into uncertain territory to formulate and cultivateRead More

A Greater Strength

Some of my greatest powers and strengths come in the form of knowing my own limitations and thus knowing when to ask for help. It comes after constant inward battles of inadequacy. It comes with the ever nagging thoughts of who will judge me. It comes rejection after rejection due to expectations that one sees,Read More

Recycling Dirt…

After sharing the first ten chapters of my twenty chapter memoir, “Hell & Heaven at 8”, I decided to take a brief intermission in order to share a few things pressing in my spirit before presenting the last twenty chapters. Today I would like to share my thoughts about recycling dirt. She mistreats him becauseRead More
