Not too long ago, I was oblivious of my power …to the point of insomnia, overwork, stress eating, binge drinking, body aches, rapid aging… And then, thanks to my boys, I discovered a whole new way to live, think, exist in each moment. Today my soul is FULL and feeling so LOVED, my spirit shiny clean and I’m smiling ALL THE TIME just […]
This picture fell out of a box a few days ago while looking for a photo of Dad's red Chevy. I've been searching for it years. I'm sitting in front of Nandi statue in Mysore, India.
