Authentic Selves

How many “selves” do you have? Just one? Several? Many? When do you introduce them? Why are they helpful? Do they get in your way? Or are they all authentic facets of your one self? For the last six summers (except for one) I have taken my Harley-Davidson on what I now call (thanks to …

Soul Thoughts While Running

Today as I ran and let my mind just freewheel, it floated to thoughts about “Old Souls” and “New Souls.”  There are some folks that seem to me to be “Old Souls” because their wisdom and affect just seem to embody many lifetimes. Their eyes seem to reflect and mirror ancient wisdom that take many …

Inspiration from the Easter Bunny

He shared his pain with her as though offering a precious gift and she accepted it as the most cherished gift in the world, as though he had given her the most beautiful star from a midnight sky.  She still holds that pain in a very special place and it has changed her forever. He …
