Hello there, Happy Friday to you,

You know what? I am so glad you are here, here to share the journey, here to show up, here to be part of the tribe, here to be inspired and inspire… I have so much gratitude every day that I get to do what I do, that I get to have you as part of the story, and to share my stories with you, too. So thank you, from my heart, body, and soul.

Spring is upon us, and how does that feel to you? I love the freshness, the light changing, the buds popping up. It lends me to lots of journaling and poetry-making, so today I will share some of that with you.

I’d love it to inspire you to write/journal more too, think of this as a prompt for you! Then you can share with me, too…

April 7, 2023

I must have a mind of Spring to regard

The freshness of what every day has to offer

A curious mindset of growth and the new possibilities

The emerging of opportunities showing themselves,

Sometimes shyly, peeking out from spirit

Sometimes in your face robust

Saying “Take me now, do it”

Sometimes the downloads are fleeting

One must hurry to gather, collect, 

and sow the ideas quickly

Before they pass on to someone else

A spring-like regard to stepping up and stepping out

Participating in the blossoming

To show off the individuality of me

The quirky, the beautiful, the ugly, the glory,

The power, the desires

The downright action of standing tall, and still-mountain


In the early morning glowing sunrise

Often blinding in sky beauty

You are most observable

Whispering good morning and listen now

Coming with new beginnings

Sprouting aliveness and opening the petal doors

I am forever awed, never tiring of the whispering

The knock on my shoulder

Eyes wide open

Heart, body, and soul ready to receive

And then allowing myself to unfold like the buds

Then to dig out of the ground

Either difficult with the thick wet mud-like tenacity of comfort

Or the ease of loose desert sand leaping forward with the high wind energy

Ever bulldozing my path and leading the way

Some inspirations take me instantly

I can’t act fast enough

Even sometimes without thought-out actions

But with creative excitement

And others say “Here, but wait, keep listening”

Learning to listen is an act of art

With the power of creation

And that inquisitive light brightens

Getting sharper, hotter, burning, shadowing, then

Reclining, then softening back into darkness, saying

“We will begin again tomorrow”

Since in my last class, and also always here in my SM, I’ve been talking about planting seeds, and making change for your desires…these ideas are continuing…

Here’s a great quote too, from Dakota Earth Walker:

So… journal time…

  •  what are you planning for spring? why?
  • what beginners mind can you bring into your dreams?
  • what/who is inspiring you? why?
  • what action can you take to move forward, baby steps?


Alright my love, thank you for taking the time to read and listen deep to your heart and body this week…

Have a blessed week,
