A fearless rest….

blog petals
Remembering an easy gift idea.
Not cheap,
but free
and exquisite,
an ageless beauty tonic
perfect for these hurried days.

Look into your own familiar eyes,
and, even if they disappoint,
lavish on forgiveness thick

 for every misstep and bobble,
every gnarly whoops and fumble,
forgive it all
then smile,

bloggyyy

nodding permission
to go live your true colors.
Yeah,  get out there in the jolt and jostle of everything
and just be you.

That’ll do.

Your own heart untangled,
that fresh willowy feeling
of breathing deep and limber
settling in…..
beautiful gift,  that.
Re-apply generously
and often:)

I wish you a fearless rest about it.

joy to you
“I’m not a smart man
but I know what love is.”
-Forest Gump

 

 

simply saying…

In all of your
magic making,
yes and no saying,
errand running,
carole humming,
burden lifting,
option sifting,

picture taking,
merry making,
sky gazing,
crowd braving,
memory building
how-in-the-worlding
hassle having,
heart salving


truth speaking,
quiet keeping,
sniffle tending,
love mending,
clutter busting,
mystery trusting,

card sending,
time bending,
idea trying
instead of buying,
storm weathering,
family gathering,
stocking stuffing,
trust for enoughing,

list making,
breath taking
one-more-thinging,
just keep singing……

~ deep breath~

please remember this:


~be kind to you.

“may your coming year be filled with magic and dreams
and good madness.
i hope you read some fine books
and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful,
and don’t forget to make some art
-write or draw or build or sing
or live as only you can.
and i hope,  somewhere in the next year,
you surprise yourself.”
-Neil Gaiman

I don’t want to save this wonderful wish for the next year;
I wish it for you now!
~for the last long sips of THIS year,
with all my heart,
with big hope and love.
