Peace and The Moment of Solstice
We do move and flow.
We dream our lives into this thing of reality that is mutable.
An existence that is one moment afire and the next awash.
And then there is the reveling, or rather the lack of reveling in the beauty and wonder of the moment, any moment.
The false expression, when we say the thing we did not mean to say and do the thing we did not mean to do.
Those moments are without the price paid in gentle thought and yet have such value in the land of the creation of the less ignorant being.
And still I work toward and dream of the perfect moment of expression. more...

Today is my fifty-second birthday.
On my birthday I tend to reflect on who I am in the world and I beg your indulgence. I am, this day, a mother first as I drag my child out of bed. My beautiful, amazing, brilliant child. I am also a keeper of cats, only two. One has been with us for thirteen years, her name is Peace and she is the loudest cat I have ever known. Always a less than subtle reminder that peace is a cacophony of choices and has very little to do with quiet. The other has been with me since he was three weeks old, a “rescue kitten” found in a drainpipe “abandoned” by a mama cat who was, with little doubt, standing by, watching the scary people take her baby kits away. By the time he came to me, he was indeed in need of a home, and someone to be his surrogate mother. I nursed him with a bottle and he is now my dear companion. Just this side of tame from wildcat, Brooks Gervais is not yet full grown at about 20 months and 13.8 pounds of sleek beauty.
I am also a writer. I write because I must, to write is to live, to not take pen to paper or keyboard to computer is a small amount of death for me. Too many days have been spent without putting words to a page. Count the grey hairs and you will know the number is great.
My other monikers in this life are: Life Coach, Cook, Potter, Musician, Friend, Lover, Peacemaker, and Intense consumer of tea.
I am surprised when I say I love my life. This life, this very moment, with its ups and downs and kindnesses and fears. I learn and grow every day. This is the goal, my goal. To be accepting of everyone and open to everything. At the moment I live a very modest life, one that I enjoy as I am surrounded by friends and people who care about me. I still long for a companion through this life. I find myself saddened when I look at the photo of a long lost love affair. Ended out of pure naivety and a fear bourn in me by the assault perpetrated upon me by my father. I was able through cyberspace to find my lost love the other day, and say how saddened I am and sorry at the loss of someone who showed me the truest of loves. He stood up for me in a way that no-one before or since ever has. Thank you my dear loving man, I wish I had been ready for you then.
And now, sipping my earl grey with honey and milk I continue my day that will become the weeks and months encompassing my fifty-third year on this planet.
Thank you all for being there for me.
Peace and Love,

The Masks We Live in: Peace, Love and Standing in Your Truth
Creating our most wonderful selves. That is the goal of this grand journey that we have embarked upon. Whether by choice or fate we find ourselves in this moment, together in this place with a reverence for community.
We move through each day, creating as we go the person we want people to see. We tend to hide behind what we do or who we wish to be. The masks of our day to day being-ness are many. We don one for our friends, one for those people we pass on the street and another for the police officer we pass on the highway, as we check the gauges and wonder if the mediation of driving has taken us away from the reality of driving or has it awakened our senses in such a way that the mediation of the road itself is keeping us safe.
We have learned through a lifetime of fear and shame that we are to hide our true selves, that we are to disguise the humanity.We are taught to hold back tears when we are sad, hold back laughter when we are happy and keep our dreams to ourselves.
We crave peace. We crave a journey that will enlighten ourselves and others. We crave moments that light us up.
Our childhood directives that have become the ruts in our life roads, leading us like slot cars to some final destination of banality, betray our cravings for our journey of peace and enlightenment. These ruts have been honed in fear and self judgement that we inherited or just picked up along the way.
There is a choice to be made in every moment in time. there is a choice to be ourselves. the one we wake up with every morning and know to be good and kind and open. The self that we know with an intimacy that we share with a very precious few.
Every moment every tick of the clock, every wave that encompasses the sand and sends the tiny crabs scampering. Every motion of the trees that betrays the presence of the breeze. Every stretch of the cat, every moment of a newborn’s life… We make a choice to be authentic, or to don our mask once again.
We get to choose. We hold that freedom of choice as inherent in this wonderful place we live. The self-evident truths have become mired in the fear and pain of our daily lives. And, we have a choice. a choice in this moment to stand for ourselves in a journey of kindness, a journey of grace, a journey of truth.
Truth - the illusive being that lies within us - that we fear so much to express. We deserve our expression of truth - our expressions of the moments we hold dear. It is time to stand in our own truths. Delve into our deepest selves and discover who we are, who we were always meant to be.
Our moon is full tonight. It is blue and beautiful, unabashed in its willingness to move the tides once more before the last breath of October is exhaled. It is a beginning, a motion, a moment to embrace. Our tiny moon is there expressing itself, calling upon us to seize this moment in time that we might stand up and find our truth. to be in our three year old selves and say I Declare Peace. I declare this with this planet, this moment is one of peace and I create this peace by standing in my truth. And now we take the baton our beautiful blue moon is handing us, and run, play, writhe with the emotion that is our inheritance, the truth of our being-ness, to allow our lives to flourish, to allow our lives to align with those around us - knowing that we share this space because we have something to share - our emotions our thoughts, our breath of love and devotion to one another.
Standing in Truth is the goal of this life. Crafting a lasting peace is the goal of this life. Moving the beings on this planet to recognize the love within each of us and release it out of ourselves into the cosmos knowing that the more love we share, the more the font is filled, the more we express, the more the love is there to express.
Find joy. Find love. Live this moment in the truth of yourself. Cast away the masks of fear and Embrace love and Spread it out across this lovely, breathing planet of ours and Declare Peace.
