“The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” was a bigger than life story during the days of my childhood. Dorothy was lost and wanted to find home again. Her companions were all looking for something precious that was seemingly lost or perhaps... Continue reading

Houses are built from the ground up. Homes are built from the inside out with love's touches. Is the house of the spirit built from the roof down? Continue reading

Illness & poverty may confine us. But, Fear is the great jailer. A mean boss walks in. Our spirit trembles. A piece of our soul breaks off every time we give into bullying. None of us can live free unless we find the bravery to live love, not fear. Continue reading
What splendid and elegant drawings, Liz. I love both. And your words are so helpful in offering support for our souls. Thank you again for reminding us of your grief experience and how you worked to aid others: "Helping them, helped me" - clear proof that the soul sings every time the music of helping others is played.

“When we relate to our bodies as having soul, we attend to their beauty, their poetry and their expressiveness. Our very habit of treating the body as a machine, whose muscles are like pulleys and its organs engines, forces its... Continue reading

Superb point, Terry. Caregivers would do well to note your suggestion. Compliments on your wisdom in discovering what you needed. We can't take care of others unless we first take care of ourselves.

Caregiving is a matter of soul as well as body. We are all caregivers or in need of one - or, importantly, both. The finest tonic for the caregiver's soul is the belief that their healing work is meaningful. Repetition and fatigue can wear down that belief. Continue reading

The full thrill of life's meaning flows to those who live what they love. "The finiteness of life...does not make living meaningless," Dr. Viktor Frankl wrote, "...death itself is what makes life meaningful." Continue reading
This is one of the most fulfilling and powerful posts I have ever read in the Journal, Liz. Thank you. The Peace Pilgrim is a complete inspiration and I am so grateful you introduced her to us. "Do all the good you can each day. The future will unfold.” This is the definition of "success" - not winning or losing or gaining or falling behind but simply doing kindness and living love with each breath. And who can argue with the wisdom in this line: "All right effort bears fruit, whether we see the results or not.” Most poignant of all, "Among mature people war would not be a problem — it would be impossible." Sadly, countries are often run by immature people (ours appears to be in that situation right now.) May God save us from war - and from the immature acts of the soulless .

Sensitivity plants release leaves insulted by human touch. Then they grow new ones. Can we grow new strength by releasing the weight of old insults. Is it worth trying? Continue reading
"Both, and..." clearly such a big part of wisdom. Letting ourselves be forced into either/or choices is a great mistake. Things are rarely so simple. Yes. As Maureen said, "what a joy it would have been to be your grandchildren, Liz..." She is right. Because your love for them has no conditions! The best!

To recover your forgotten wings (& become a better leader) tell someone else they have magic powers. When they cast a cynic's eye say: "You're magic to me. Every time I see you I feel better." Continue reading

Have we left our spiritual footprints in every place we have ever been? If so, every moment increases rather than decreases our presence in this world. And the air of tomorrow will hold memories of your presence today. Continue reading
