Shalom - Hola - Aloha...  Have you ever tried to talk to someone when you don't speak the language?


It can be agonizingly frustrating.  We often use hand gestures or speak more loudly, as if somehow this will help. 

There can be silence, confusion and even the fear of sending the wrong message, all because we don't know how
to connect.  And then... (hopefully) there comes a breakthrough.  A connection, a sound or smell, perhaps even a few words...

In my life, I know I am blessed for so many reasons.  Not the least of which is, I am not at risk of being murdered if I go out for a run or get stopped by the police.  I've also made it to my 50s and, while I have watched many l...

On Friday the 13th, I sat in the sanctuary of our synagogue as Shabbat services began.  I love attending services as the music is very healing and uplifting to me.  I often receive channeled information from Spirit during the service so, I routinely keep a small journal on my lap rather than a siddur (prayer book).  I listen more closely to the readings because I am not looking at their words on a page, and I sing along to the music while my hand follows its own path across the page.  I'm no stranger to automatic writing and am often profoundly moved by the words waiting for me at the end, which I have no memory of writing.  Some days I write more than others but, on this night, I wrote only a single word; live....

As I write this, the man I've identified as Twin, is lying in a hospital fighting for his life.  So, I'm feeling the need to focus on something a bit lighter just now...

When I was getting out of college, my dear friend Jessica (who became my boys' godmother) wanted to get me a kitten for graduation.  But, since we didn't know where I was heading after college, she did the next best thing.  She got me all the things I would need so, when I was settled somewhere, I would be ready to get one!  When I landed in Boston for a while, my then-boyfriend took me to go looking for a kitten.  I knew I wanted one named Winston (I'm not really sure why) and after a few tries, we found this gorgeous, fluffy gray and white ball of f...

You know that saying, when the Universe closes a door, it opens a window somewhere else in your life?  I've always liked that idea, and I have tried to lean in to it.
Then there's that other one, "God won't give you more than you can handle."
I fucking hate that one!  It' makes me want to scream, "What the hell made you think I could handle this??"

Door after door had closed, I just wasn't convinced windows were actually opening and I was starting to feel like I might suffocate.  The door to Twin closed and it almost killed me.  The door to Vampire closed.  And while I knew that was definitely for my highest good, the damage he did on the way out made the whole thing exponentially worse, and sent me spiraling back i...

When you come to the edge of all the light you know,

and you are about to step off into the darkness of the
unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen:

There will be something solid to stand on

or you will be taught how to fly...
