Catching Inspiration!

Catching Inspiration!

Last week I had the opportunity to interview a young woman who is headed in the right direction.

Led by her own inner strength, guided by her parents and a really good teacher... and a goat!

I find myself thinking about her story and realizing that yes, small towns are cool. 

Today, as I was starting my daily morning pages, I realized that I'd forgotten the prompt for the pages that had come to me last night as I was getting ready for bed. This morning I wrote, "ideas are fleeting - just like bubbles - if you don't see them while they're whole and can shape the picture - they're gone! But their energy doesn't disappear. Someone somewhere we eventually catch the treasure encased in that rainbow sphere" and just like that my prompt came back to me. I remembered that I wanted to write about this young woman and her mother.

Life brings challenges along with blessings. I'm struck by those relationships that show great strength and courage. This photo of mother and daughter speaks to the deep love that comes from walking together with clear vision. There is satisfaction and understanding; these two know how to move through fire to find the light.

I'm blessed to have heard a small portion of the life and dreams that these two share. Blessed by treasure encased in rainbow spheres. Blessed to live where the big sky looks down on our journey and we look up into dark night skies.

Blessed Be!

Remembering the Sparkle of Unstoppable Dreams~

Remembering the Sparkle of Unstoppable Dreams~

The vision of smiles for everyone easily felt without fear.

Confidence born of accomplishment acknowledged freely by friends and strangers.

The trail to a new world that is not brave but rather unstoppably curious.

Steps on Mother Earth beating out the rhythm of an unstoppable journey.

The desire to welcome the guest with warmth and grace.

Here, an Invulnerable Sparkle ~

Reminding me that the voyage across days and rivers, oceans and unstoppable waves to a new day is never ending.

That the path towards love and joy and compassion and understanding and inspiration and peace is infinite.

I am remembering the sparkle in mothers’ eyes for the freedom of husbands’ embraces.

I am remembering the sparkles in parents’ eyes as children laughing bring friends to play and share and learn and care.

I am smiling.

Revisting unstoppable dreams.

Restoring Order ~ Direction from chaos

Snow on Clips ~ February Snow Storm

Clipped & Ready

I've been thinking about the path I'm on, spiritually, emotionally and pragmatically.

Since my last post I've found myself, discovered self-confidence, left a good job for another one that enabled me to contribute to our community in a way that used all of my talents and life experiences to great advantage. I found direction and purpose even as I worked in constant chaos.

Four and a half months ago I found myself facing a decision that required me to stand for truth. I spoke truth and I was let go. I gave a strong effort to return to that work, under better circumstances and made headway. Currently my efforts are tabled. Waiting has become wandering and wondering how best to move forward.

During this time I've been able to contribute stories and photographs to our local newspaper, the Raton Comet. I've been able to give more time to the projects I volunteer on. It's been good but it's also been a challenge. One can only be tabled so long.

So, I'm looking for a way to contribute to the greater good of our community. I bring a lot to the table. I'm committed to collaboration, compassion and creativity. I'll be looking for opportunities with new eyes for dynamic creative compositions. It's an exciting time... this waiting and wondering and wandering.

Blessed Be!
