Turning 60—at 2 AM

Spanish Dagger Bud

Woke in the dark

thickness of night

hearing the call

my soul… my heart

“Get up! Wake up!”

gently but urgently repeats

Until I sit now



Cat a-purr in my lap

Stars brilliant all around

My soul calling out for itself:

Wake up

Open your eyes

Be a strong heart

A true heart

Live your joy

Dive deep.

    Here’s to a wonderful and wild celebration! We are off to Tucson until mid week. Looking forward to catching up and exploring conference enlightenment for those ready to dig deep. g

    That is powerful. A gem like that is a worthy condensation of a lot of experience.

    Dare I say, “Happy Birthday?”
