  • Poetry Tuesday – Good Morning

    Dawn’s soft light Moves across the room, Melting away the night’s shadows On her sleeping face. The beams cascade Their cleansing warmth Upon her scented skin, Rejuvenating  the senses beneath.

    What’s Holding You Back from Your Dreams?

  • Seeking Contentment in Life

    I am putting this up front as a disclaimer: I’m 36 years old and certainly don’t feel like “I’ve figured life out” yet. In fact, I think if we ever reach the point where we think we’ve figured “it” all out, that’s when we’re in trouble, for in that moment, we’ve stopped learning. We can […]
