Heart's Desire

It is my deepest wish to walk through this world one step at a time.

Permission II

You have permission.
to let go. 
to say yes.
to fall.
to roll.
to tumble. to fumble. to fail.
You have permission to succeed.
To see that seed be not one of doubt
but of bigness wherever that bigness must grow.
You do not need to carry the heavy tools with you.
You will know which one to use to trim the hedge.

Seen and Not Seen


Let your ideas ebb and flow.
Whatever needs to be is already there
Without you needing to figure it out all the time.

Dive In



What you think is there simply disappears
as you move more deeply from the surface.

Self Blessings

The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don't flower,
for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;
though sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on its brow
of the flower
and retell it in words and in touch
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing;

Sit with what you already have,
and dream with it in a new way

Spring Begins to Breathe

'Silently Riotous'. Mixed media on board

And don't think the garden loses its ecstasy in Winter.
It's quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.
