our potential….our list of treasures

finding treasures...

down to earth & yet full of dazzling treasures….

don’t forget these simple truths…

It is strange to be here. The mystery never leaves you alone. Behind your image, below your words, above your thoughts, the silence of another world waits. A world lives within you. No one else can bring you news of this inner world. Through the opening of the mouth, we bring out sounds from the mountain beneath the soul. Human presence is a creative & turbulent sacrament, a subtle sign of invisible grace………John O’Donohue….Anam Cara

every now & again it’s good to remember these small places in our tucked away places…

list your favorite things….things to love…

your own list of treasures…maybe they haunt your silence…

old dogs

cloudy moons

downtown shops

really used bookstores

fat cats

a good glass of wine

dog-eared pages

warm socks

a deep breath


unusual pottery

soft scarves

riding a bike

old baseball hats

crisp stationery

glitter glue

strawberry milkshakes

knarly trees

old photos

sublime poetry

blue water


child’s pose (yoga)

a great pen



long road trips



ok…..so I must continue this…it’s addictive….try it…don’t think about it too much….

isn’t that what gets us into trouble much of the time?….

do you need a list to remind you? do you follow your list of treasures? or are you disconnected from the things you really love?

let’s get closer to our real life…we stand in our own way…..

and yet…..we keep trying….
