Foolishness

Foolishness
I believe that  humans are always looking for connections
 to something bigger than ourselves.
I believe that the core of our love affair with depression, anxiety and addictions is because we feel lonely.  We have lost a sense of connection to something bigger than we are and that connection is ultimately a spiritual one. In this day of political correctness and  constant  conversationl sparring, it is uncomfortable and intimidating  to say that we are looking for  a Spiritual or God connection..  So we stay stuck wanting the Bigger connections and  we are afraid to go after them.

Children are the masters and we are the students........

How do we know what we know and why won't we let kids know what they know?

Do you know that feeling when you are talking to someone and a word or a phrase pops into your head in repsonse to what you are hearing?
Do you know that you know something is true before someone even says something.
Do you know that you love certain colors, smells, tastes just because you do and not because someone tells you that they are good for you?
Do you know the words that kids say  that make you sit up and listen ?

Roseate Spoonbill Chat

Roseate Spoonbill
I am sitting at my desk speaking with the representative from Fitbit about a malfunctioning alta device and I happened to look up into the gaze of a Roseate Spoonbill.
If you have not seen these beautiful birds up close, they are a gorgeous pink and white color, with a long bill that is shaped like a spoon at the end. They have a similar neck to a heron with the long s curve and probably a similar size to a medium blue .

Irma's Gifts

waiting
Today, as I am sitting in the beautiful, hot calmmess of Central Flroida, I am wondering about how information comes to us. In the past, I have felt that I must be the originator of the idea or I could not claim to speak about it. without referring to them.  Things have changed.

Hurricane Irma and blowing her away

The Eye of GOD
During the past two days, I have gone through so many feelings due to  the excessive and frightenting coverage of this hurricane. I survived well through Sandy in 2013 while living in NJ but  here in Florida, it  feels that there is deeper sense of catastrophe and doom. Certainly,  Floridians have  a much deeper and more profound connection to  big weather.   On Tuesday, much of the bottled  water and automobile gas in many stores and stations  was completely depleted in Sarasota. The constant topic of conversations was the storm and I was left feeling quite sad,anxious and uncertain.

I did my due dilligence of getting the necessary water, food, candles and other supplies needed but still felt that there was more to do.

Neutrality/ Inside the Now

Neutrality
This collage feels like a portrait of being "Inside the Now". Whether it  happens when we hear  a child's smile, feel a dog's breath, or see an image of Pema Chodren.  We  already know these feelings and simply need to recreate them. I don't know of a better way to do this than by being neutral. It is easy to lose our center and go into rages and lacks. It is  also easy to  see everything as being perfect. I don't believe that either way is honorable to ourselves.

Patience and Gel Plates

patience
Since the eclipse, I have woken up each morning with specific images and words. This morning was the same.
My dream depicted a gell plate with a variety of images on it and part of the plate was still soft. Then, I heard the word patience.
