inspirational love quote with a yellow flower...

One pure moment holds the power to create infinite love.

I wrote this post about mindfulness swiftly by hand in a notebook while my daughter performed movement therapy in a Buddhist temple with her mind/body/spirit psychologist.  Perhaps the peaceful surroundings informed my writing and made it feel effortless.  I return to this post and read it often as a reminder to capture those moments that matter.

Inspirational autism quote with autumnal red-leafed trees

Sometimes life tells you to tilt you head, sideways squint, peer through a new perspective.

I came up with the phrase “sideways squint” while brainstorming a blog with my husband called Autism Blue Moon for parents of children with autism.  We haven’t been able to create it yet due to time constraints.  However, I chose Sideways Squint as the name of a category that would speak to ways I have merged into my daughter’s world as a means to more fully connect with her.

Inspirational Friendship Quote with a winter landscape

A spirit friend flies you to the light.  A soul friend sits rooted with you in the dark.

This post I wrote through many tears and against a backdrop of soothing music as I honored my soul friend, George, who passed away last summer.  I touched on the concept of a soul friend who sits rooted in silence during times of grief, as well as a spirit friend who helps you fly.

Quote from the Post– Dog Love is a Mom Soul Soother

A mom who fears dogs eventually falls in Dog Love when her new puppy, a yellow lab, connects with her daughter who has autism.

inspirational dog quote with a girl and a lab...

When life grows cold a dog will warm your soul.

I wrote this mini-story with my lovable lab, Cali, lounging on a bed in my study.  All the while, Cali stared sometimes at me, sometimes out the window at the fox, deer, squirrels visiting our front yard.  Every so often I hugged Cali, my big furry muse.  She took it in stride, accustomed to my oddities while writing.

Quote from Post– Soul Story: Hollow Wood and the Heart of Amber

A soul story about leaving Hollywood behind to teach kindergarten in Watts wherein I discover a precious gem in a student named Amber.

Inspirational quote about finding your soul story

To unearth a soul story, sit in quietness, reflect on your past and retrieve a gemstone.

I created the first draft for this soul story while sitting near my favorite oak in my backyard.  Then I refined it while listening to beautiful piano music.  This piece moves people, I believe, because it touches on a meaningful relationship flavored with synchronicity, the passage of time, heart and soul.
