Sunday Sailing

By on Nov 9, 2018 in Uncategorized

I’m dealing with a lot of sailboats lately. Methaphorically mostly. Although I did meet for some intuitive counseling on a sailboat one Sunday recently. Receiving counseling, not giving. And this past Sunday a friend described her sailboat dream – at the end of which she folded up her dream sailboat and packed it away like one of those windbreakers that fold up neatly and fit into a knapsack. (I don’t know what that means, btw!) And at my day job we speak a lot in terms of sailing – I’m the sailing master, and on Sundays when I’m off, someone else takes over steering the “ship.” It’s all very apt. I’m prepping to activate this art side of my life again, in the business sense, and excited about this. I’m using the baby steps method and also the buddy system – in one case, combining those two. I think it’s the only way to stay accountable and get things done that seem...

Her Heart was a School of Leaping Silver Fish

If by Rudyard Kipling

The other day someone shared with me this poem by Rudyard Kipling. I cannot believe it but I do not think I have ever read this before. It’s very moving, very encouraging for living true, living real. If BY RUDYARD KIPLING If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:   If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave...

Opal Sunrise

By on Dec 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

I’m still walking at the beach, lately in the early mornings. It’s been a succession of opal light mornings which I’m so grateful for. This in contrast to the reality of the news I catch up to later – fires raging nearby and so much political unrest. Blaaaahhhh. But the opal mornings are the time to tune in to something larger and something beautiful. I wish more of my life was taken up by this, preoccupied by it instead of so much reality, so much that is mundane. But it’s like polishing a secret stone, shining it a little bit every day, keeping something inside alive that feels like hope.
