A Poet's Life

Day 7 Gratitude

I am grateful for the power of manifesting the things I need in my life.  As children we enjoy a time filled with magic.  We don’t question it or deny it.  As we get older and life begins to force us to shed the child and become the adult, we lose sight of the magical…

Day 6 Gratitude

I am grateful to have met my obligation as a voter in my country.  Despite the many months of tension, in the end the people have spoken.  Not every country’s people have the rights to be as involved in the selection and election of their leaders as we do.  In the end, no matter the…

Day 5 Gratitude

I’m grateful for every morning I open my eyes and greet a new day.  When we go to sleep at night, we take for granted we will awaken in the morning, hence, we take for granted many of the blessing we have in life.  It’s when you stop and think about how lucky you are…

Day 4 Gratitude

Today I took some time to reflect on what I have in my life.  It’s never about comparing what I might or might not have, or if my life is harder or easier than someone else’s.  Each of us live in our own personal Universe and we share that Universe with whomever we deem worthy…

Running away from…

As I sit in my little artist loft and listen to the sound of my air conditioner jacking up my electric bill, my mind wanders. I’ve often wondered about the human desire to run away.  We never seem to be satisfied with where we are or who we are.  The need for satisfaction is pretty…

Sorting through brain matter…

It is difficult to put into words how much a person’s life can shift based on exterior influences and interior life changes. Each morning I wake up with a different idea that I think would make my life mean something.  After having completed the most difficult life task of raising my children, I have found…

Revelations – Book 1:Page 1

I’d been sporting a cough for about two weeks.  Several people suggested I go to the Doctor to make sure it wasn’t something serious.  One would think a woman of my age might have surpassed the invincibilty mindset by now.
