A glimpse into my life…

My left thigh is tingling and warm

from soft kitten purrs, as loud as they are gentle

He refused to “say cheese” though

The room is cold, here in the basement

as well as quiet, dark and spacious

I can remember when this entire space

was filled floor to ceiling with miscellaneous

I feel connected to it in remarkable ways

And that’s just the basement –

My current home is remarkable


I feel home

Everything feels like home right now

What a difference a few years makes…

I used to be in a bad marriage

I used to be a chronic enabler

I used to recklessly abhor myself

Just years ago…

Don’t get me wrong, and if you read my blog you know

Things aren’t perfect…

They truly are better than perfect

This is why

My unalome/wanderlust mashup tattoo

That is to say, what it represents

They joy of the journey

Remembering to appreciate, even the bad

Even when life is chaos and you can’t breathe

If anything, that got me here

At least from that self-deprecating behavior of my past

But it does go deeper

To a time before I new how to be happy

And only grace got me through that

Om, beloved Divine, quest of my heart

Thank you, thank you, thank you my sweet, sweet loves – my beloveds – my sweet love, my beloved, my endlessly cherished One

In all the ways my devotion has blossomed

I have been endlessly blessed

And if I had not strayed into the depths of hopelessness

Would I have ever known the true heights of bliss

Fortune Dares Poetry Series: Patriot

claim to the Heartland
that raised me
forests that whispered
Life’s secrets
wandering through dark
Danger’s places
the alleys and the caves
the strangers
I sung my praises young
in honor
of hard lessons learned
for better
of Destruction’s strength
of Regeneration’s beauty
it made us all tough


now let us make new
find reason for joy
support Generation
Let’s rise up again
in respect
liberation from fear
in honor of Destiny
we will win much more
than any war
championing empires
without lines
I see a horizon at the edge of this world

there’s a great revelation a chance for rebirth

to start anew without judgment, without need for fear

no lies even to themselves and they be lessened by more

each their own kingdom, each their own cause

each a chance for exploration of the great consciousness beyond

they will find the endlessness that never stopped creating

everything – nothing – the order of chaos and greatness

a chance for feeling and knowing all has its opposition

we will find our joy when we’ve found what it means to be exactly who we are when we are what we are how we are but most important why

so find the answers in looking around at the beauty and the splendor

open your arms and trust in the more

a little more a little more a little more a little more a little more a little more…
