Gathering..... it's what I like to do in all walks of my life..... I love to gather people together. I love to gather children, grown ups........ this photo is a part of my life where I get to help gather Women. I have had a good month of gathering in my life..... I am learning stronger and better ways of being a gatherer.

I honestly feel blessed and very lucky to experience the wonder of mentors in my life who have helped me into this way of it, this way of being truly alive to my own purpose. Gathering. Hmmmmm.....

As I Walk with Beauty

As I walk, as I walk

The universe is walking with me

In beauty it walks before me

In beauty it walks behind me

In beauty it walks below me

In beauty it walks above me

Beauty is on every side

As I walk, I walk with Beauty.

A moment of beauty...making some new prayer beads...

Some stolen quiet time a few weekends ago.... this new magazine "Seeing the Everyday" is so beautiful, full of beautiful photos and stories, and NO ads.
Also, making these prayer beads was so joyful to my heart, it was just the kind of quite time I had been coveting before launching into a few busy weeks here!
