I am standing
In a dome of ethereal transparency
Glass-like, yet fluid,
Shimmering eminating vibrations
The only thing between me and
Galaxies of limitless knowledge,
Wordless transcendence I see
Just beyond my reach
Slightly distorted, yet infinitely
As I wake, a door
Begins to form in front of me,
The lock nowhere to be seen.
Confusion and frustration
Cloud my mind in self-doubt and judgment
Why am I here
Staring at a door
When I could be discovering
And uncovering trans-galactic mysteries?
But transformation within
Abundant compassion and acceptance
Clears away the fog
And I can’t help but laugh
As I realize that the door is,
It’s been over a month since I’ve posted on this blog – I know it’s kind of a sudden change in activity, but life does that kind of thing with me quite often.
Frankly, I’ve been having the time of my life. For the past month I’ve been living in national forests with hundreds of beautiful family members. I’m sure I’ll get to writing about it someday, but right now I’m soaking up the experience.
I may not do much on my blog for a while – I hope that you all stay inspired and true to yourselves. Adventure on!
I watch the sun
climb its way up from its
bed, the horizon,
beaming rays of
morning glory onto
the face of our Mother.
as I sit, enraptured by this
celebration of life, it seems
the sun is whispering to me
“I am here!”
in joyful song.
But through my musings, I remember
that the sun is not actually rising,
as we so often say;
we are in fact the ones twisting and hurtling
in an eternal orbit of
this tiny corner
the Sun’s life-giving flares.
I ponder on such marvels, that
we are the ones
who twirl in an eternal dance
to greet the sun and the moon each day.
Opening my eyes, I taken in
the golden-tinted wonder
Smiling, I stretch out my arms
and whisper back,
“Welcome, my friend!”

As many may already know, the night of July 12 beheld the first of three huge, red full moons we’ll experience this summer. I wont pretend to know much about what this means in the astrological realm of things – I’ve merely checked out a couple pop-psychology Google search links. I’ll be doing some actual research soon.
Nonetheless, she was stunning. A friend and I both saw vivid geometrical shapes coming off the moon like rays, and I couldn’t help but be inspired to write a lil poem.
The moon is in full glory tonight, displaying her (creamsicle) beauty
in the most visceral way. Brilliant, daring, yet at times blushing – hidden behind a stray wisp of twilight silk
I imagine her shy smile,
I clench my teeth in suspense.
Several months ago, I was given a beautiful set of Russian Gypsy fortune telling cards. I use these cards pretty regularly – though the level of my use changes with the phases of my life. Pretty consistently, I’ve drawn a symbol that tells me “happiness will come from far away“. I don’t always realize what it’s referring to, but I know that I was ecstatic to spend somentome with my brother, who lives in NC. He’s a most wonderful soul, and a friend I’m glad to have.
Nathan with my Uncle Bob at the Wrightsville Reservoir
Canoe time! I know the photo’s funky, but I only snapped one shot of them holding it. We had a blast – even made it halfway across the reservoir with the boat back-end forward. It was on purpose, I swear.
