Love with Impunity

Tentative love, like a bubble blown through a child’s wand. Pop, and it disappears.   It’s like the falling of all daisy petals with one single uttering of “He loves me not.”   Really, love, LOVE, is more like air always present. The more one exhales the more rushes in to fill our lungs.   […]

Cove of Love

She slouches her shoulders unconsciously protecting her heart but it only creates an aching knot near her scapula.   She knows it’s futile that there is no protection out here with waves crashing all about. Just the slow grind of pain chasing pleasure.   She sees that she must swim into the only safe place, […]

My palms press against water push through to my thighs while my legs flutter.   I move forward.   I don’t try to make the water disappear. I don’t want it to drain away.   Instead I rejoice in the resistance against my muscles which strengthens them with every pull through the glistening ocean of […]

Red Cherries & Divine Love

  Divine love—that blissful, quiet stillness within, is real. Every thought, emotion, thing is illusion. I relish the purr of my kitten, the vanilla scent of a ponderosa forest, the taste of sweet cherries, the cool zing of ocean water, laughing with friends and bottomless sleep. I rely on the real. And the photo? Ramah […]

Running Waterfalls

Turquoise pools shimmer, palm trees wave and parakeets zip by. I paddle my kayak toward an infinity line with nothing but blue sky beyond, while the current pushes me into the unknown. Headed toward the fall’s lip, my fingers tremble on the paddle, my blades slice tentative strokes.  I reach the edge and fly. Water […]

Swim in the Ocean of Love: 3 Ways

When I swim, I’m like a dolphin. I roll and flip in the gravity-free expanse. I speed along and dive deep. I leap off the bottom and fly through the air. Likely, fellow swimmers think I’m crazy. But I can’t help it—I’m overflowing with bliss. I feel the great wonder of the Ocean of Love […]
