the stillness of now

i imagine a world so still I could hear its heart beat. the rhythm would lull me into my dreams where the life I’ve always wanted to live resides. peace also lives there, on the other side of darkness where the sun rises…

goodbye tv

Nearly ten years ago I put my television in the trash. Since that day my life has been an endless string of adventures, enlightenment, awakening, learning and growing. I’ve learned to spend more time living, as opposed to imagining life vicariously through characters…

yesterday vs. today

Writing Prompt: Recently Acquired What’s the most important (or interesting, or unexpected) thing about blogging you know today that you didn’t know a month ago? I didn’t know how easy it was to engage people and build a circle of sharing. It makes…

listening to the echoes

Writing Prompt: Gut Feeling When’s the last time you followed your instinct despite not being sure it was the right thing to do? Did it end up being the right call? I’m a tad psychic, so I’ve learned to trust what the universe,…

making it

Writing Prompt: Make It Anywhere “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere,” goes the famous song about New York City. Is there a place — a city, a school, a company — about which you think (or thought) the same? Tell…

pushing it

Writing Prompt: Envelope Pushers When was the last time you took a risk (big or small), and pushed your own boundaries — socially, professionally, or otherwise? Were you satisfied with the outcome? Living on this crazy planet is a risk. We are forced…

the unseen future

Writing Prompt: “Good things come to those who wait.” Do you agree? How long is it reasonable to wait for something you really want? How wonderful it might be to know the future, depending on what that future looks like. The universe houses…

memory #1037

Memory can be sharp, or dull. Either way, it is memory, and it lingers—long and intrusive, flawed, but sometimes rich and overflowing with love. It was about six years ago. My lover and I were out on the porch. It was a hot…

things gone by to come

Writing Prompt: Present-day you meets 10-years-ago you for coffee. Share with your younger self the most challenging thing, the most rewarding thing, and the most fun thing they have to look forward to. I look across the table at my 10-years-ago self, wondering what…

memory #867

Memories never come in any particular order. So I’ll number mine randomly, in the spirit of the randomness of memory. I was no more than 12 years old. A friend had just come up from Jamaica and had never seen snow before. The…

here we are

Here We Are There is a world so vast we cannot comprehend, Yet we wonder endlessly about our existence. One cannot know this familiar place, Except to recognize how unfamiliar it becomes With time. The winds show us the direction of our mortality.…

living water

Everything contains water to some degree. In this image, water has wrapped itself around my ankles, as though attempting to contain me. In a strange way, I wanted to be contained. I consider water to be a living entity. In our first months…

rethinking the hot and spicy life

I’m somewhat of an odd Jamaican woman. I don’t like things too spicy. Nearly everyone in my family loads their food with everything hot created by humans and I am expected to not only indulge, but enjoy it. After all, what sort of…

second-hand madness

I swear I’m not making this up. I promise you. I must say, listening to the war stories of others is always amusing. Here is yesterday’s war story from a friend in the trenches working at our local Tuesday Morning store. Customer: [shows…

the night sky

The night is beautiful here. The moon seems to be full and only a few sparse clouds speckle the sky. If not tonight, tomorrow night, go outside and look up at the night sky. Let the many millions of stars slowly come into…

the bookish thing

Ah, the literary-minded witch. From one witch to another, hands down, I would choose to become an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades. I want longevity as a writer. When I see authors such…

reminder of home

I really wouldn’t want to bring anything but my rich memories. But if there were one small object I had to pick, it would be my Lemurian Seed Crystal. It’s no larger than my thumb. It is such a wonderful reminder of everything…

celebrating me

Strange as it may seem to some, I have absolutely no desire to be any celebrity for a day. No matter whom I admire, the bottom line is I don’t have a clue about their lives, who they are, what they think and…
