Crowns and Melons

Is she stealing my Crown?

A bit of a mirror image born together in the same womb, yet so beautifully unique while joined at the hip and heart forever.  One observes what the other one is doing, and the other twin observes back.  How extraordinary to be joined together from the beginning of life, until perhaps the end of life.

 

Twins First Birthday

Today is the celebration of their first Birthday, my Nephews Twins.  One year old.  Imagine that!  The constant flow of imagination, fantasy, and dreams that all young children dream.  We dress them up as we see fit, but their extraordinary imagination and ideas are so Brilliant, and beyond any human adults understanding.  They move us forward, onward, and upward with their invincible minds, their beautiful thoughts, and gorgeous imagination.  We as adults grow weary of the magic they possess as we grow older. It’s not so easy inside the box, the rigid center of compliance, obedience, observance, and adherence to conformity. It stifles us, it makes us rigid and inflexible, and it distorts all the beauty around us. Somehow our adult years take us there, beyond the imagination of our youth.

Young children hold the same imagination as Peter Pan and Mary Poppins in their Hearts and Minds.  It is pure and vulnerable.  It is innocent.  It is precious.  And it is filled with treasure.  They see and imagine things that we will never see.  And it is my belief that they hold the keys to our future in ways we have never dreamed of.

Healing the planet.  Healing each other.  Healing all the destruction that has gone on for far to many decades.  Our forests and the nature of this beautiful planet, the animals and putting an end to factory farming, encouraging a stronger alliance with Vegan diets, our Oceans and Rivers, and putting an end to over fishing, our Climate Change and putting an end to fossil fuels, . . . our everything that means Everything to the health, well being, and continuation of our planet.

 

 

When I look at these precious One Year Old Twins today, at their first Birthday Party, I can’t help but imagine what they might bring to the world around them. Their parents are beautiful people, and they are what Love is all about…they honor and respect each other.  They work hard to bring good into everyone’s lives. They are blessed to have two healthy twin daughters and they are all about family, and the love within and around that family.  I sense and hope that their children will reach beyond anything they ever imagined and contribute to the health and well being of this planet.  That goes for politics too.  We all need to release the negative BS and start celebrating the positive.  It’s not about party.  It’s about Truth and Honesty and Integrity.  Our basic principles.  Our constitution.  If you haven’t read it lately, I welcome you to re-educate yourself and why it is so important to every American. 

 

The Golden Crown of America is about honesty, truth, and integrity.  It is what our nation stands for.  Go above and beyond your call of duty and recognize what is happening in America today.  Everyone needs your voice.  Everyone needs your vote, especially our children, our grandchildren, our nieces, our nephews, our brothers and sisters, and our parents.  Be Aware!  Be Awake!  Be Alive! Do something…don’t stand still!

 

The Beauty of Friendship!

Honoring the Life of a Dear Old Friend in L.A. …who is not so old!

 

The Beauty of Friendship!

The Beauty of Friendship ~ December 26, 2015

 

30 something years ago I received a call from a woman I had never met.  A mutual friend connected us. Shortly after that call we met for the first time and began a beautiful friendship that lasted for many years…a decade or so.  And then we lost touch.  Almost 20 years passed before we would meet again and reconnect.  Such a Blessing from high above!  The Divine knows exactly who is meant to be in your life, at exactly the right moments. It’s rare that a friendship like ours comes together in one’s lifetime for so many years, and then separates for a while, only to reconnect years later…wiser, more at peace, and much more aware.

 

Our lives have changed in so many ways. We have both built businesses and traveled at least several hundred thousand miles or more in our growth and learning along the path. Conscious awareness, and a reality check on what is really important in one’s life has been a cornerstone for me, as I’m sure it has been for my friend.  As for me, I know my breasts are bigger and longer, and even closer to my waistline than they used to be. I know my Heart is more open and receptive than it has been for a decade or so, after so much loss and longing. I know my mind is more alert and aware than it has ever been.  I also know my waistline has added on a couple of inches. And I know for sure that I live in Grace and Gratitude every day, for everything that is.  Especially this Present Moment of Life.  I am Grateful.

 

The blessings of friendship are some of the sweetest blessings I have ever known in my Life. They gift me with a sweetness and a wholeness that makes me feel complete.  So does Nature.  Honor your close friends. Give them everything you’ve got!  Recognize their inner beauty. They are precious souls living along side you.  Love and friendship are so sacred and precious. Every person that sits at your table, and every friend that arrives in your life is a Blessing from high above.  Recognize it. Savor it. Appreciate it. These are the Diamonds in our Lives. Love them well.

 

I am aware of how phenomenal my dear, old friend Joanne is, and what an extraordinary woman and human being she has become. And she is not old…Just at the beginning of her Now Moment!

As the extraordinary Maya Angelou says:

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.  I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.  I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

I thank God for the Beauty of Friendship! 

I Carry Your Heart

I Carry Your Heart, My Sweet  ~  Happy Birthday!

 

I Carry Your Heart

 

I carry your heart with me, I carry it in my heart.

I am never without it, anywhere I go you go, my dear;

and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling,

I fear no fate, for you are my fate, my sweet,

I want no world, for beautiful you are my world, my true

and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows

higher than soul can hope or mind can hide,

and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart.
