gratitude friday 11/21

lakshmi.pngIt is hard to believe this year is almost over. And my goodness, what a time it is to be a woman of faith. To be committed to positive intention. And to rejecting lack. Lack is everywhere around me. This habit of seeing morning newspapers is an in-my-face challenge every day to rise above panic and worry.

Blessings to Lakshmi (left), and to Vadsuhara (right), goddesses of wealth. Bestow your bounty on us now and now and now. Blessed be.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.
