A Year to Clear, Minimalist, Simplfy. I am called to release what no longer serves me, and boy oh boy, am I letting go of stuff. Coffee mugs we never use, clothes I never wear, and books I don’t need to keep. And now the bookcases provide me with a creative outlet!

Whether trust is eroded or faithfully strong, sometimes you must simply strike off in the right direction and know you’ve done all that you could. Today is such a day. I trust that I am held in love and peace, and all will be well.

Danny Kaye said we should throw all the paint we can on the canvas we call life. I say we should dance and celebrate and laugh ourselves silly. Joy and friendship and magic is your birthright. I’m going to the beach house today and soak up the sunshine and grab all the love I can. What about you?

I chose to walk through the gardens because it was an act of love. All choices are made either from love or fear, mostly fear. I needed solace and blessing, and roses have both in abundance.

Sitting together for the first time in years, I feel that welcome old sensation of complete acceptance. We watch the sun set over the marsh together, arms around each other, remembering the past back into our hearts, and walking a new path together. You are the best of me, my friend.

I find these heart-shaped rocks on the beach across the street and bring them back, and place them together with the others, as a reminder to cultivate patience and compassion. I have hundreds of these hard little reminders to soften my own heart, and understand. It works pretty well.

Like these fellows who thought I had food for them yesterday, we’re all conditioned. I have been listening to teachers and gurus talk about many subjects over the years, and the one that gets me thinking the most is how we are conditioned to make choices based on fear rather than love.
I have celiac and must choose carefully what and where I eat. Unfortunately that choice has always been based on avoiding a problem rather than enjoyment. I am now ready to choose from love, to support my body’s health and happiness, and eat joyfully. Like these guys!

Yesterday we went to the cemetery, as we do several times a year, to visit, to remember, to place stones on the graves of ancestors and friends. Since this family has spent generations by the sea, we bring beach stones to mark our presence here. Anyone who sees them knows that these people reside in the hearts of their descendents forever.
