Passion in the Park (poem, photos, & live music)

Toward him my heart turned when I heard his words,       “With your hand in mine,       we can walk through any space and time       and leave behind       this crawl space with its narrow mind       we can’t deny what we’ve been searching for, for all our lives       yes, you and I, with love wings we can fly…” …

My Greatest Gift

I dreamed you before I met you. I loved you before I held you. Before I heard your heartbeat for the first time, before I felt your tiny legs flutter across my belly, and before I first looked into your artist’s eyes, your life gave mine a grander purpose, and an overwhelming desire to become …

A dancer ready to spin …

FREE Fall Forward to JOY

Catalina Mountain Range - Oro Valley, Arizona Leaving what is familiar and stepping into the unknown can be uncomfortable and unsettling, and at times, it can feel like I am free falling, which can be terrifying. But if I can remember to breathe through the experience with my eyes wide open, follow my inner voice, …
