"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
~ Albert Schweitzer

This blogging community amazes me. I am continually fed by brave women who have the courage to write about their struggles and doubts, their passions and triumphs. When I feel my own light fading, I often go to another's blog and there is always something there that lifts me and leaves me feeling more connected and less alone in this creative journey. I am so aware of how just one little sweet comment or one person sharing their truth can be just the spark needed to propel me forward on this wild, twisty, bumpy, beautiful ride. 

I have noticed, too, that often the quickest, most rewarding way to light my own fire, is by sparking someone else's and the goodness just goes on and on...

Whose spark can I rekindle today? A good question to ask ourselves, I think.

Ultimately, we are the ones who have to show up for our love.  But those sweet souls we bump into along the way have so much to do with lighting and feeding and rekindling.  Thank you precious fire feeders.

Love, love to you all.


  1. Yes, thank you for all of your sparks and kind rekindling. Oh the ripples you have caused and continue to cause!

  2. Wow. We were blogging on similar thought streams this week!


What are you thinking/feeling? I'd really love to know...
