I am grateful for things always working out for me, for creativity, for nature, for sacred space and great company, for catching up and great stories from my musician friend (her song now has 12,000 views!), for a really full belly, a warm fire, the starry night sky, and love in all forms!! Grateful for beautiful hikes through mud, snow, ice and rock, snow sparkles, sweet happy doggies, and more playful unknown-to-me fellow trail goers who have been adding to the designs of hearts & smiley f...

    HAPPY ASH WEDNESDAY
    When you practice some appetite-denying discipline to better concentrate on God, don’t make a production out of it. It might turn you into a small-time celebrity but it won’t make you a saint.

          If you could elaborate a little bit more on how to deal with negative people, I´d hiiiiiiighly welcome that.
