from my desk....


i look into the branches of a maple tree and am watching the tiny leaves begin to form. if i look down to the street, there are usually a few kids playing and the sound of their voices and the laughter drifts up to me. i can see neighbors working in their yards, and Dick's lilac bush beginning to flower.

my dog Charlie is lying on the chair behind me, the sun shining off his fur, making the occasional chuff just to remind me he is there. a little statue from my sister is on the corner of my desk - it says friends forever - and we are. an invitation to a wedding shower for my niece, my scheduling book and a basket filled with bills on the other side.

it's Sunday so the bells from the church up the road are ringing and i can hear the cheers from the park soccer game.

a wren has decided to build a nest in my eave and i see her busily flying back and forth with small twigs and the cardinals who nest in my pear tree every year are singing to each other.

soon i will call my One but at this moment, i am simply being and struck by all the signs and sounds of life surrounding me.

"wholly to be alive"

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

In the last day or so , I have been awed yet again by the beauty of the place that I live .While out riding to clear some dark thoughts , I had to take a deep breathe and thank my goddess for putting me where I am .Today , having my first cup of coffee, looking out on the lake again , I am humbled by the beauty of life around me and within me .
I raise my coffee cup to you , peace be with you easy .
