Wow. You always blow me away with your quiet wisdom. It's wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon, but it goes straight to my spirit and really makes me think. Thank you for sowing such beauty in your garden for the rest of us to walk by and enjoy the fragrance of love and insight.
blessings and happiness,
Athena

Every single beat...our hearts do so much for us with very little effort on our parts...we really have to tap into what makes us tick...and appreciate each and every little nuance of daily living!

Great illustration...and as always a great sentiment!

Did you know that your blog goes perfectly with a cup of coffee?

Thanks!
Ciao Bella!

~plunk~
....into the soil of my heart
this living seed drops
like the magic bean
sprouting a stalk whose
end is golden.
I SO needed this just now
and feel it swelling already
until I value each beat
and patter we're given.
Oh this is rich, friend:)
(thump-thump....thump-thump....)
Cherish you I do,
Jennifer

...then we would be so into it! I think we are for the most part, except when have to take our eyes off our smart phones? Hahaha! I don't know! Everyone I meet down the hall is looking at their phones. Whatever are they doing. They are not talking, just staring into the phone.
