Complimentary Follow-Up

A time to slow down, read, quietly celebrate, and connect with family and friends, this holiday season has been. Like most people, I also spent time in reflection as we approached the year's end. Reflection is an important part of my life and a core part of my personality, which may be true for most …

A Pitter-Patter brought Peace

A pitter-patter on the rooftop did rouse me from sleep during early Christmas Eve. Too early for Santa, that much I knew, but beyond that I did not have a clue. I did not rise to see what was the matter, I just listened a bit longer… rain was the sound I heard… a sound …

“When Giving is all We Have” (a recitation)

One river gives Its journey to the next. We give because someone gave to us. We give because nobody gave to us. We give because giving has changed us. We give because giving could have changed us. We have been better for it, We have been wounded by it— Giving has many faces: It is …

Southwest Sunshine

The wintery scenes that come across my screen remind me that it is winter… somewhere. Thank you, to the photographers who have shared winter wonder dreams from across the northern hemisphere. I cannot offer you any of those photos, but I can offer a sampling of southwest sunshine to those who need to shake off …

Thank you for sharing your gifts and showing up in the way that you do – as uniquely you! From my kitchen and with a grateful heart, to you and yours, I offer warm regards. 💗 Michele Lee image: my almond mocha cake (before I ate a slice) 😋

Golden Hour

A date with the Divine – each morning I rise to greet the golden sun; she and I become one. She and I entwined, we reach for the outstretched hand of my higher self. Never quite touching, but a little closer each day. A symphony of winged melodies surrounds the silence within. Each encounter sublime, …

Desert Blooms

An office with a window view has been transformed into a garden, thanks to you. Spring has ushered in a month of sharing what Divinity has so graciously given. Colors and fragrance burst from my screen, flooding my senses and drawing me in. I pause, I gaze, I smile, I breathe. I pluck one from …

Please let me dance again

Several weeks ago, I submitted a story to Dr. Phoebe’s site (phoebemd.com) and I am pleased to share, the piece was published last Friday, April 9th. My submission is a personal story about a few seconds that almost drastically altered how I move through life. Sharing the experience stirs vulnerability in me, but I chose …

She Walks in Beauty

A cherished reader, talented writer, and dedicated teacher wrote a poem about me in response to my post, "Sidewalk Conversations," which featured two poems about conversations I had with two homeless men, separated by time and geographical locations. I am so appreciative of reader, asumoftheparts, for this poem and for her ongoing thoughtful and thought-provoking …

Complimentary Jar (audio poetic prose)

A week into November and I remembered that it is National Gratitude Month. Maybe an entire month devoted to gratitude has been canceled, like so many other happenings this year, or likely, its appearance was buried under election and COVID updates. Maybe we are all feeling pandemic fatigue, leaving us little energy to feel or …
