I’m so very far from full awareness and capability… I have to be willing to scrape, bump, and bruise many more times… to see just how far I can go. A myriad of obscure plateaus and poignant moments are yet to be illuminated.

The Moment is Now

There are unexpected forces that speak to us, letting us know ‘the moment is now’. It’s hard to explain this particular energy and the defined insight it imparts to us. Mysterious as it may be, it is abundantly clear that all possibilities have aligned to the reasoned conclusion. The moment is now. I can no longer rationalize the interference, nor explain away the often unconventional rearrangements of my life. There is no financial blame or bruised heart cop-out. I cannot impugn a lover or point a finger at my childhood. No charges can be...

What Best Should Be

Thick clouds paper the sky on this lethargic Sunday afternoon. December is upon us, as the Canadian cold settles over Northern states and the tales of tropical tempest in the South come to an end as the beguilingly-named hurricanes abate for the season. I sit here typing at the “breakfast nook” table glancing out to my petite parcel of land, and I am eyeing the orange tree that is set just fifteen feet back behind my fence, growing on the adjoining small undeveloped lot owned by a wealthy NY investor who is selling the land at an absurd price...
