29 Ways to Stay Creative Infographic
Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.

It’s been awhile. Apparently, I was even hacked. (First time, ever, on any account.)


Pinterest kinda took over tumblr in my mind… but I might be coming back here, too.

Happy 4th!

The lost one: the lost-in-love one never can die.
The child-heart: the bleeding child-heart never can be dry.
The heart’s child: the wide-eyed heart’s child never will cry:
The love unspoken cannot be a lie!
(Softer, be softer, my song.)
We build our own imprisonment
In the sealed-up oaks of fear:
We crouch in the old, old trunks:
Be-numbed by threats of dispossession:
And though we may send up a timid leaf,
a tender bough,
We rise too late to greet our unknown loves.
