Heartbeat Hugs

Heartbeat Hugs
Simple breathing is what’s missing from many hugs. So many are over before they are given a chance at magic. Relaxing and breathing are highly recommended to maximize this transformative moment. No patting, squeezing, roaming or groping. Simply hold one another. In order to give this a bit of sacred twist we need to rediscover joy. Find grati [...]

Simply Smiley

Simply Smiley
After a year-long break I’ve once again redesigned the Mini-Thanks card aiming for a simpler, more direct message. I might have gotten a little top-heavy with an attempt to monetize the message. I’d like to ‘do the message’ much more often. It does require time and energy. Hence the wish to find a few nickels in it som [...]

Jaden Gives Smiles
Ellen, a real-life acquaintance and friend on Facebook shared this video link with me. She and I have done a similar thing; giving simply to give. I am glad she reminded me. Speaking only for me – it is somewhat selfish. I get so much out of it. And, I can see by the smiles of those I meet that they are lifted up momentarily as well. Ja [...]

Meanwhile. During. When I start to look at ‘it’, whatever it is, I begin to see that the flow seems to be the whole of it. Fixed and static endpoints mi [...]

Pennies from Heaven

Pennies from Heaven
  Pennies from Heaven … My friend Beth lost her mother not too long ago. Beth made it known to her brothers and sisters that she did not want the house, the land, the car, or the cash. She simply wanted a few memories; the gold wedding band, a particular dresser, a kerosene lamp, and some Mercury head silver dimes. There was not an [...]

Walk in Beauty

Walk in Beauty
Walk in Beauty My first two customers this morning were women. An older and a younger. I’m pretty sure they didn’t know each other. We started out on our way and pretty soon I was surprised myself by asking the following question: “When was the last time you felt beautiful?”  They giggled. I continued. “I’m sorry. Not the beautif [...]

Hobo Daze Parade

Hobo Daze Parade
I invented a holiday in the early 70’s. The first day started with a pretty girl and a walk in the sand along the Missouri near Vermillion. Rain clouds came up from Nebraska and broke over the water. There was a parade of rainbows, et cetera. We might have gotten lost. Here’s to getting lost. Here’s to inventing your own per [...]

Just follow your path?

Just follow your path?
Moving in ways you wish, that feel right and good, a step or two at a time, later will lead to the idea that a path exists. First next steps is really all there is. http://www.trueactivist.com/joe-rogan-fk-tradition-and-ideology-just-follow-your-path/ Share this:PrintFacebookGoogleLinkedInStumbleUponTwitterEmailPinterestPocketTumblrLike this: [...]
