Women's March
I stand in love and solidarity for women’s rights. Women’s rights are human rights. And today’s Women’s March represented dignity, equality and inclusiveness for all people, all color, all race, all gender, all forms of life. This is why I write. This is why I’m an artist. It is to […]

WAKING INSTANTS: AMBROZINE About 18 years old, I worked in a small hardware store located about 100 feet from Narragansett Bay in Newport, Rhode Island — an international sailing port that brought people in from all over the world. Ambrozine was from Trinidad and spoke English in a way that […]

Society's potential
Let me hear only the voice of creation, I in that, feel peace. We are not alone — there are others here.

Here’s the thing about social media. You can use it to meet really great people! Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to meet up with my friends, inspirational singer/speaker/author, Noelle Marie Amendola and her husband Vince, at a Starbucks in my neck of the woods, as they toured through New England. What […]

The Thing About Social Media




Surrender 3
Asking for help can sometimes feel as if we are being submissive. But truly asking from our heart is allowing for possibility to form. Asking, either out loud or in silence, is using our voice as an instrument through which the Universe can then speak.  Asking for help opens our […]

Our Voice is an Instrument

Sunday morning brings a quiet gratitude for reflecting on nice people. We usually put a price tag on the word generous or generosity, as our culture illustrates to us in ads for gifts of jewels and baubles. Being generous is about giving. Anything. Your time, your smile, your ear to […]

I write a lot about it. I’m a huge advocate of it. So, what is inclusiveness really? The short definition is – to consider everything…everyone. Peeling back the layers and digging deeper we can discover that inclusiveness is active – to actively value each other. In my opinion, actively valuing […]

Inclusiveness – Evolving Conversation



smiling
In the deepest sense of the word, miracle in Sanskrit translates to Smerah, meaning “smiling,” Offering our service in uncertain times brings the miracle to us. How can I help? Slowing our breath, keeping it deep and steady connects us directly to the miracle. The miracle is you! Choose to […]

In our search for consciousness, everything external is temporary or impermanent, because everything we seek is eternal within us. The unfathomable eternal is what we are. We shall always be. Namaste 🙂

Recharging the Empath Years ago I read a book titled “Are you Really Too Sensitive” by Marcy Calhoun. That was the beginning of my understanding through someone else’s words, what an empath is, why I felt that way I did, and how to take better care of myself. The dictionary […]

Collective-self-worth 1
Being is defined as “the quality or state of having existence, something that actually exists, a living thing”. So, our global self value, our collective worthiness, rises when you and I see each other’s natural state of being – alive. Then, each one of us, being the vessel, brings collective […]

These words can mean many things to many people; here is what they meant to me: Sky’s the limit: My graphic design teacher said that to me while teaching typography one day. She implied once you learned the basic knowledge of type placement that you could be as creative as […]

A man passed away that I’d seen at my gym for years. I’m not certain what happened exactly, but it was sudden. That said, I would have smiled at him more frequently. Said something more than hello, maybe took the time to find out if he liked eggplant parmesan – […]

It Wasn’t Anyone’s Fault



social connection
We are seen, we have purpose and meaning, we are loved by our family. Rest safe in that love. Our family is of nature, of the Earth and Sun, and from the Moon and of the Stars, our voice connects us – our soundless sound of soul still sings… We […]

We are worthy just the way we are. We are enough – good enough, strong enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, rich enough, and spiritual enough. The holiday madness is in full swing. No matter where we are in the world, media finds us. It exclaims that we need to buy, […]

Lately, I’d been struggling with the stress building from the approaching holidays. Contemplating the peace and calm energy that had been so comfortable over the past nine months or so and wondering what happened to it. Then last night, while speaking to a friend of mine who shared a similar […]
