Share the Joy: A Trip to Seattle

Image
I'm experiencing joy anticipating my little jaunt to Seattle to meet a friend for dinner at one of my favorite restaurants.

Perhaps you've gathered that I have a love affair with the city I lived in during my junior high,  high school, and college years.


I left that city after college graduation, but it beckoned me back when I was in my 30s.


Though sometimes I think about leaving her when the skies are gray and the rain falls relentlessly, she captured my heart long ago.


I'm hers. Consider this an offering to her beauty.

I finally went to see The Intouchables.


Unlikely. Improbable. True.
It made me feel enormous gratitude that film exists.

Share the Joy: I Am My Own Muse

Image
I am taking Vivienne McMaster's You Are Your Own Muse class and enJOYing every minute of it. So today, I'm sharing answers from a week one worksheet. 




I am dreamweaver, soul healer, joy activator, life artist and midwife of meaningful change.


I come from an unbroken line of feisty, fabulous women.


I see most every situation as a container for joy.

I trust that if I keep my heart open, love will somehow find its way inside.  

I believe in the power of kindness and compassion & that we're all supposed to enjoy the journey that we're on.


I imagine success on my own terms.


I love (because I'm alive). Plain and simple. And I thank my former husband for offering me the opportunity to learn, deep in my soul, that I have an astonishing capacity to love someone truly, madly, deeply, without reservation, and to be steadfast in that love for decades. Without you, I would always have wondered.


I crave time alone, playing with images or toting a camera, writing, dreaming, explorin…

It gives me enormous JOY to live where I do.
