Talking without speaking

Reggie Watts is brilliant. Capturing the filler babble that we use to sound important, he highlights the need for direct communication. Say what you mean.

Strip the words down and you are left with clarity. Real communication, real connection.

Plus… He is funny too.

Nurturing Creativity

Elizabeth Gilbert. She rocks. I hope she always keeps writing. I hope she always lets the magic fairies that live in her walls sneeze their fairy snot all over her.

Watch. 🙂


Firework by PS22

I’ve had this song running through my head lately. Enjoy!

Phil & Sebastian’s

Swirl of foam
Spirals out
And lands perfectly in my
Heart shaped cup.

Warm brown hands
Scoop white beans
into careful categories.

That tender touch starts my whole day.

Thoughtful white hands
Caress brown beans,
Coaxing out their hidden mysteries.
The stories to
behold & told
in a single sip.

That first sip stops my fast clock
and sets it to the perfect time.

Tell me your name.
Tell me about something good.
And I will tell you how far
these clever beans have travelled to your waiting cup.
And tell you my steamy secrets of
pressed and poured goodness.

And now to
Sip &
Sit &
Write &
Talk &
Wonder at
These magic beans.

Hafiz on Love

Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”

Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.

~ Hafiz

Let it go

By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try, the world is beyond the winning.

– Lao Tzu

Spoken Word Superhero – Sarah Kay

This is a brilliant talk by Sarah Kay where she describes the power and relevance of poetry in today’s world.

She Rocks!

I love her three steps on her journey 1) I can. 2) I will. 3) Infusing the work you are doing with the specific things that make you You.

I think these steps are true of whatever creative calling stirs your soul. Believing in yourself opens the door. Then, a solid dose of commitment keeps you moving. Finally, you learn to stand up and be yourself. Then, you do it all over again.

Appreciating Jerry Hicks

Jerry Hicks passed away November 18, 2011. He was the husband of Esther Hicks who channels the group of Beings known as Abraham. Read Esther’s wonderful post about it here.

Here is my message of appreciation for Jerry:

Dearest Jerry,

Thank you so much for being a relentless question-asker like me. The questions you have asked Abraham through the years have given me many satisfying answers and even more delicious questions yet to ask. I am sure that you have had your questions answered in a wonderful expansive way when you reentered Source and I know you will continue your fun and expansive relationship with both Esther and Abraham.

I so much appreciated your physical life and the wonderful physical materials you have provided to help us questioners to discover some interesting answers. I look forward to attending my first Abraham lecture soon and ask them some very delicious questions.

Dearest Esther,

Thank you for your joyous receptive nature to allow Abraham to speak through you. I am so very happy that you are wanting to continue this process with Jerry helping you from his Source-filled state. You have helped me so much with my own process of accepting the death process. I have had four members of my family pass over into Source this year and I have been having trouble accepting the absence of their physical form. Thank you for saying that accepting death will help me play better with them in their place of Source. That makes so much sense to me.

Thank you for being honest with us in your blog post about being a bit angry with Jerry for not sticking around in the physical world. I also understand this one! When my Grandma passed, all I could hear for days afterwards was her shouting “I’m still here!”. And so is Jerry, but I imagine he might say it a bit differently. 🙂 All my love to you in this time of transformation.

Much love and respect,


The World’s Best Cat

I love Maru. I wish he didn’t live in Japan, but lived in my house instead.


Grade Five PS22 Chorus Sings my Favorite Song

I seem to be new here. This is the first I have heard of the PS22 Chorus. I’m loving how I have been learning things lately. I was searching for a version of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” which was my favorite song in about Grade 4 or 5, and I ‘discovered’ PS22 Chorus. 🙂 They have played for President Obama. Seriously. How did I not know this?

So inspired by a teacher who inspires.
