Listen Like Crazy to Your Life




The birds, the shadows
the leaves
every granule
of sand. They're all saying
the same thing

Slow way down
get close and closer
listen like crazy 
to your life

*              *               *

Since my computer is having major issues
Since my girls only have a few more days at home with me before they start back at school
Since there aren't a whole lot of words showing up
Since my intention right now is to listen deeply 

I will leave you today with this simple little love doodle (made while I was on my amazing Yellowstone trip)...

Hello, beautiful readers....

How are you?

    I am amazed at how quickly summer has gone, but looking forward to the changes of fall. Harvest time. Time to listen like crazy to life.

    1. I know, Deb...are we really at the very end of August? It's been a full, rich, beautiful summer here & I am welcoming fall with open arms. Time to slow down & listen - I'm really looking forward to that.

      Sending you tons of love, Deb. You are such a source of beauty & support in my life - thank you.
