It was a beautiful, sunny Florida day when she received the life-changing diagnosis that she was dreading.

All of humanity’s problems stem from one’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.  -Pascal

As most of you know, I like to fly under the radar.

YOU are the hero of my pages and my books.

YOU are the focus of my work, my prayers and my blessings.

I don't talk a lot...

Welcome to a sweet soft moment of peace. 

I just had one of my own - and I'm here to tell you - it saved the day.

There can be a precious day of the week when we don't wake up and look at the phone.

A day when we can linger longer in our morning meditation.

A day when we can stretch, breathe and align without a phone chirping on the corner of the yoga mat.

If you woke up today feeling less than beautiful, remember, that no matter what is going on with you, the soul is always beautiful and radiant beyond imagination.

I wake at dawn, wrap in a blanket and head out to soak in the last sights and sounds rising up from this sleepy, hallowed ground.
