Welcome to my life…there’s a book in there somewhere.

Å

Have you ever walked along the beach, stopped and looked back at your footprints in the sand wondering how they got there? Have you ever been so lost in thought that part of this precious life has simply passed you by?

Have you ever made love to an angel knowing in that moment that your life had changed forever? Have you ever simply missed someone so deeply that it felt as if a piece of you had been taken with them? Have you ever felt the sting of loss so poignantly that survival is not a certainty?

I believe we all share similar experiences, and that at times some of us are more aware of them than others. I believe one of the purposes of my life is to have these experiences, observe them, and then write about them. I believe that my gift is not just in the writing, but in the experience and the ability to observe those experiences in their wonderful intensity. I am blessed with the gift of translating the language of that which inspires me into something that we all can understand.

Enjoy this, and I hope it inspires you in ways unique to your journey, your purpose and your joy.

If you like this blog, please share it. Comment. Share your story or simply hold the spirit you find within you sacred. Like my Facebook page. I thank you for appreciating my sharing, and am truly grateful for being able to do what I love in the way I do it.

I wish you peace, love and nothing but the best.

    I read your article about f I love you. How does a man who feels like that about a woman and experiences it with her, walk out? For the woman left behind, it’s exceptionally hard to recover. Extremely well written.I’d forgotten my feelings. Keep writing, whatever you do. Thank you.

      The woman left behind (having been the man left behind) needs to remember that sometimes that leaving is a gift. Receive it, open it, and enjoy it.
