I got to hop down the bunny trail
to take an Easter basket 
to my favorite 4 year old.
I've also got baskets for
his big girl cousins
and will deliver them later this week.

I've Made a Decision



I was going to spend several hours
writing today, hoping to get close
to finishing the divorce client manual
I'm creating to accompany my
client education presentations
for select law firms.

Instead, I spent time playing on Polyvore

"There is No One Else" created on Polyvore/MeriMagic

and thinking. . . 
not typing words.

I'm feeling like working on it
is coming from a place of "should"
instead of the "oh wow" place
where I usually begin,

so I'm going to "should" write 
for only a few minutes,
then leave to take some of my
divorce coaching brochures
to a hair stylist that wanted some.

After that, I'll go watch a movie
at my favorite theater

and 
eat
red
licorice,

ignoring all the "shouldn'ts"
that go along with
pure self-indulgence.

Share the Joy:Spread the Metta



Today was the World Day of Metta.
People took time from their day
to pray for the world.

May all beings have fresh clean water to drink.
May all beings have food to eat.
May all beings have a home.
May all beings have someone to share love with.
May all beings know their true purpose.
May all beings be well and happy.
May all beings be free from suffering.
Today, I shall do what I can to make this so. 

Can you imagine the JOY
inherent in shared intentions
of thousands across the globe?


I can.
You can, too.

Share the Joy: That Time Again



I'm scrambling
to schedule a post for 
Share the Joy today
before I run out 
to pick up a special little girl
and take her to see a movie
she very much wants to see.

The Great and Powerful Oz.

She's been a star lately
and this is her reward.



It's time to inspire some joy in her
by helping her learn to celebrate herself 
and her wins!

True Words Tuesday

No one is exempt from sorrow,
from celebration,
from moments of stupendous joy,
in this body experience we call life.

We're all in this together.

We're all just walking each other home.

Magic Mix





soft and prickly
sweet and sometimes in-your-face
versatile and inflexible
inspired and tired
insightful and sometimes inexplicably obtuse

it's the mix that's magic

Thursday Note to Myself






To be unpredictable,
you've got to climb out of the little box
you've gotten comfortable in.

You've got to dare to be
a little different.

To try something new.

To learn something in the process.

Don't forget to enjoy the surprises
along the way.

Share the Joy



One thing that I look forward to
every spring
is the Tulip Festival
in the Skagit Valley.



The great swaths of color
are a dose of visual joy.



The daffodils are poking up
their spiky little shoots
and letting me know
that it won't be long.
Seeing beauties like this one
makes my heart soar.



What gives you joy?
