The kindness of others when you least expect it
never fails to surprise me and bring me such joy.
The mindfulness of strangers when you try to
protect yourself often pleasantly surprises me.  
We live in a world that sometimes doesn’t
take notice these little drops of human compassion.  
I challenge this, to everyone, to simply give voice
to one act of altruism that gave you pause. And
Let ‘s all now bring goodness back into fashion!

Morning beckons
And I reckon...
it’s time to rise-
I take a few seconds...
As a cloud threatens
To hide the sun  from the sky.

It’s nice to just be noticed.
It’s nice to be respected.
It’s nice to be loved.
It’s nice to be protected.
It’s nice to be appreciated.
It’s nice to be cheered.
It’s nice to be advocated.
It’s nice to be weird!
It’s nice to understood.
It nice to be validated.
It’s nice to be good.
It’s nice to be anticipated.
It’s nice simply, if we just try-
Otherwise we never know...
What potential relationships
That we carelessly pass by.

Sunday driving through a school zone but watching to ensure I am doing under the limit.  A hurried gent is behind me gesticulating wildly in his green CRV. So I let him pass me and share the road. He angrily races past me still giving me attitude and arm signals, only to come upon a person ahead of him driving a very small car who doing even less in speed than I was! I cannot stop laughing as I watch him turn right sharply down a side street toward his destination! 😆

Dear is the Dad
who sings
to his child,
who reads them
bedtime stories,
who listens to
his child speak.
Dear is the Dad
who hugs his child,
tells her he loves her,
and holds her up oh
so high, that she
believes she can
truly fly. Dear is
the Dad who supports
his child no matter what,
who loves his child unconditionally and
without cost. Dear is
the Dad who inspires and teaches their child by brilliance of example
and their inner light within.

It’s to these Fathers I honour.

If you as a Father, find yourself falling short,
I tell you this; it’s never ever too late to recreate yourself.
Your child will love you for it!

We are separated, alienated,
and so disconnected
from each other, the
world, and ourselves.
We are sad, alone,
and over-medicated.
We are currently trying
desperately to feel free
while we simultaneously run
from what our heart tells us.

of a very long night,
which turned into a
very long morning,
but I'm happy to say
everything is okay,
this is a loving reminder
to remember to be grateful.

The day has ended
and stars appear.
My words intended
to be very clear.
I send love to the moon,
the stars, and to you.
I forgive he, she,
they, and me, too
The day has ended
and stars appear.
My words intended
to be very clear.

It’s 11:33 AM and
I think to my future.
I’m not sure who I am
anymore without my career.
Part of me wants to teach
children all they need to know.
And another part of me wants
a quaint little bookstore by the water where we all can go.
What dream will I realize
is news to me. I guess I
will just have to wait and see!

I have become a secret recluse
of my own choosing.
Not sure why it's so but I
guess it's what I needed.
I ran myself ragged for
others for so long you know-
I guess it's a lesson from my soul,
that my body heeded.
I realize in the past that
I frantically turned and spinned-
But to no avail, as I was
always where I seemed to begin.
So the lesson's learned,
and there are so many to tell...
Be yourself, be carefree,
laugh a lot, and live live well.

It's already the fourth of June,
And the sun shines on cool air.
I woke up a bit too soon,
and should have stayed there.
I went out to the sunshine and
it warmed my skin and my face,
The garden is sublime with the scent
of  lilac that wafts all over the place.
I went inside to feed my girls
and made myself a hot coffee.
I enjoyed each of these moments
that seemed just made for me.

I say I’m a teacher
You want to hurt me
I say I am a reacher
You want to restrict me
I say I am a dreamer
You want to crush me
I say I am a believer
You want to mock me
I say I am a conceiver
You disbelieve in me
I say I am a free girl
You won’t release me.

There is water
on the wind;
though soft,
I do freeze.
It carries with
it the sweet scent
of apple blossoms
which lingers on
leaves it’s been.
We walk with such
purpose just to
drink it all in
before rain
drowns us and
our sweet reverie.

Actually, that is

When we’re forced to
do stuff we don’t want

very nice people!
