Embracing the rusty days with courage, faith and hope

… “Some days are diamonds and some days are rust. … I do my best not to let the rusty days slow me down too much: I simply creak along at those times shedding no-longer-useful patterns and ways of reacting like bits and pieces of one of the old rust-buckets at the local wrecker’s yard.

Leaving cheery Post-It notes on my trail

… It’s a funny thing about life … sometimes it just doesn’t go the way that we think it’s either going to go… or should go. I know that it certainly has left me on numerous unmarked trails and border paths with little or no warning whatsoever. … The other night my son kindly pointed out to me that there are a lot more “signs” on my path than I thought … I just wasn’t recognizing them as such. It turns out that Life has been leaving Its own Celestial Post-It notes for me to find. Continue reading

Falling … and rising again … in my dance with Life

Nobody ever said that this trip through life was going to be easy … but way back in the annals of time … and the halls of The Universe … I do seem to recall hearing something about it being “a big adventure”. Well that was certainly a huge piece of Celestial, understatement! I mean honestly isn’t that kind of like describing a trip into the heart of a volcano as a warm, vacation spot!??! Continue reading

There are no accidents.

… On our good days Perky Polly and I danced around the house and when we couldn’t physically dance anymore we simply rumbaed around the inside of us. Time passed … as it does here … and I’m happy to report that … these days … I’m almost dancing in the world again! Continue reading
