treat yourself as kindly as you would your best friend...



May those that love us, love us.
And those that don't love us
May God turn their hearts;
And if he doesn't turn their hearts,
may he turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping.
A Spell to Commit Pronia byJennifer Welwood

Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;

Opening to my loss,
I am given unimaginable gifts;
Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.

Each condition I flee from pursues me.
Each condition I welcome transforms me
And becomes itself transformed
Into its radiant jewel-like essence.

I bow to the one who has made it so,
Who has crafted this Master Game;
To play it is pure delight,
To honor it is true devotion.


The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
Oh, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud,
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

About Me Welcome to the little summary box of me! : )
I think I will address this bit by telling you bits about me that I would want to know about you...
My life has been very full and I have had many experiences that have made me who I am today. I will never, ever stop growing or learning.
I have no tolerance deliberate violence, lying, or ignorant hating. I would really prefer to remain a "PollyAnna" and not see the ugliness, but that is not the real world.
I am a child care provider. I own my business and work from home. I have been doing this for over 10 years now even though my own children are long past the child care age. The first group of kids I had are in college now!
I am a Rape Trauma Counselor on the weekends. I became State certified to do this wonderful work over 3 years ago.
I am a singer and dancer in 2 competive choruses. This was a huge personal growth step for me as it's a whole new world. I now don't know what I would do without it now! la la la
I can't live without the Ocean. It is my Spiritual home. I love gardening, reading, the theatre, blues bars, picnics, wine tasting, being pampered, lilacs & roses, 70's music (no kidding).
I need mutual respect in any relationship regardless of what kind that may be.
I still like to play on the swings....
I love to lay outside on the ground in the pitch dark and watch the sky move... it's really very enlightening.
ah... there's so much more..........
