Disillusion

I’ve been here silent all these years emotions and thoughts imprisoned in fear locked up with keys of guilt and shame so my heart was grey with grief so much to say to share no voice no confidence So I mostly existed disconnected dull defeated but refused to be blinded to the divinity that dwells…

Scapegoat

This is no laughing matter, but rather more common than what most of us are ready to recognise or admit. Personally, I think it almost requires a process of enlightenment to gain awareness of this sort of thing going on around us, close to us and even to and from ourselves.  This has been the…

Unhidden

“Authenticity flows out of truthfulness and it is the only way to find acceptance. From the place of acceptance of what is real/true, transformation can take place, spiritual growth is possible. Without this, the willingness to be truthful, pretense becomes the only alternative.” from the Alchemy of Voice by Stewart Pearce (I think) So if…

ALWAYS Remember The power of Kindness To anyone Anywhere Anytime Anyplace BE KIND   Here is just a little thought for the day, for life, for each moment, for the hard choices when emotions rise high and tempers want to let words and objects fly! It can be hard sometimes… but it is always the…

Freedom and belonging

This is and isn’t a repost. The poem will be a repost, but I want to share a bit more of my own story. I am considering a little series on running, passion, pleasure, power, freedom and how it all fits together for me. We all have our constellations of being and by living in…

This is just a bit of lightheartedness as I look back on the start of a new chapter in my running journey. It is the event that made me a marathon runner.   Signs and wonders messages from above or within how would I navigate without at least a signpost now and then Voices of…
