Glowing with the Flow

pool of lightMonths of travel, covering thousands of kilometers by air, and hundreds more by train and car, is a soul refining opportunity. Now able to be still for a few days, finds my heart and spirit overflowing with gratitude for a remarkable stream of ‘reunions’ with open-hearted individuals who are committed to using their talents to make positive differences in the world we are so privileged to share.

We receive gifts and leave ‘pieces’ of ourselves wherever we go, our intent imprinting on all we touch.

Be gentle with yourself, and others.

Take a walk with me…

While many amazing things happened during my recent travels in Israel, one of the best is my daily addiction to long walks. Remarkable connections have already been made on these evening jaunts, and thankfully, the temperature here is blissful compared to the desert! Join me in a visual reflection on this evenings walk…

blog 2This evening I noticed this marker for the first time. Well, I guess it’s a sculpture. You’ll have to forgive me for the story that popped into my brain when I saw it; a few years ago, a Swiss television reporter was interviewing a French woman who was the oldest person in the country. Admiring this centenarian + 5 year-old’s elegant beauty, the interviewer marveled, “What’s your secret for having no wrinkles?”, this wise woman tossed back an immediate response, “Oh honey, I have one big wrinkle and I’m sitting on it!” No doubt her sense of humour got her to this ripe old age!

But when they take to the walkways they seriously mess with
the national neatness indigenous to the Swiss…

that the Italian influence is the Law that rules!

All this beauty, ‘just another post card’ is exceeded by the Music! While I have more pictures to share, an orchestra has started tuning a few blocks up the path, and it’s calling my name!

I am Home.

Wrapped in a ring of Alpine peaks

Facing blue waters as they glisten in the setting sun

I am grateful for this time, space and place,

where with joy I celebrate healing and deep well-being,

Knowing I am free to begin once again.

Amen
