Spinning Our Stories

We spin our stories,
our dreams and our fears
we share our memories,
laughter and tears.

We share in the process
of other’s grief
and feel the healing,
and joy of relief.

Stepping out of past stories
into what is yet to be
with knowledge and truthfulness,
equal and free.

Sharing Stories

Perhaps we share stories in much the same spirit that explorers share maps,
hoping to speed each other’s journey,
but knowing that the journey we make will be our own.

Be Aware Series – 4

We were born aware
but some how we’ve lost the trait
in our insane quest
to get somewhere else
instead of just being where we are
now.
We hear and gather stories
to pass on
but it is not the same
as being a part of the story.

BE.

Be Aware Series – 3

Did you even see the lost puppy
dart between two cars
as you jogged past?

Lost, afraid and whining,
you could have calmly called him
back to the safety of the path again,
but your ears were full of music
and you didn’t hear him.

Be Aware Series 2

Did you see the sad old man
on the bench by the cafe,
head hung down,
shoulders slumped.

He lost his wife yesterday
and does not know what to do now.
Your smile could have
warmed his cold, empty heart
even for just a moment,
if you’d noticed
instead of staring
at your phone.

Be Aware Series

Be Aware

1.Did you notice the tired mother
with two tired little ones
at the check-out in front of you today?

Instead of sighing out loud
about her slowness at unloading her groceries,
why not send her some calming, positive energy
and the ability to hold it all together
until nap time.
