Welcome to my place in the sun...
Greetings to one and all!
I am not around much these days. If I have missed your birthday, I am truly sorry. Life has been truly busy. I have just gotten back from a WONDERFUL trip to the Northwest! I got the chance to visit, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Park. Truly beautiful country, if you have not had the chance to experience it. I hope that all are well. I will catch up with you when I get the chance.
PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to add me to your friends list, please send me an introduction first!

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting in your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit in pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own,if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tip of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, or to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you're telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.
I want to know if you can be faithful and therefore be trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty every day, and if you can source your life from God's presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of a lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, "Yes!"
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done for the children.
It doesn't interest me who you are, how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

|Wild Fact About Me
||...do unto others as you would have done unto you. Harm none.
|What Gives Me Hope
||...to see firsthand the innocence of a child; to experience unconditional love; to awaken just before sunrise to experience the wonderous beauty of the Universe as it greets Mother Earth in shades of burnt oranges, muted pinks and dusty lavenders. Such an awesome sight to behold and no two are the same.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
|What/who changed my life and why
||the works of Marianne Williamson, Og Mandino, Lynn Andrews, Hugh Prather,Louise Hay,Richard Bach, Clarissa Pinkola Estes,and Sarah Ban Breathnach
|What Bugs Me
The destruction of rural areas,
Stupid mean people,
People who can't be their self
The Great Spirit,
People waking and seeing their own light,
birds in flight,
the beauty of nature,
|What Scares Me
The moral direction of our society!
