On Transitions and Listening Within …

Here are three pieces I created on the morning of October 21, 2010 and recorded to share.  Press play to hear me read the first one to you …

Press play to hear the second piece …

Press play to hear the third …

It seems that my body needed to get sick for me to S L O W  D O W N enough to return my attention to Giraffe Journal.  By deciding to stay home from my planned retreat, I have the gift of a few ‘free’ days I hope to put to good use while taking time to rest and regain my health.

I apologize for taking so long to publish anything here.  Yesterday (with help from Canon tech support) I managed to get my ‘all in one’ printer working as it should in conjunction with my laptop (finally).  My ’30-day trial account’ at Audio Acrobat is over and I’m a paying customer now … so I should be able to keep a steady stream of ‘flo po’ going on a more regular basis from this day forward.  These pieces are a few weeks old, but I continue to write daily and am working on my ‘official’ Labyrinth Journal site.  I appreciate you sharing whatever feedback or responses in comments or email.  Thanks for dropping by …

Thought for Today
“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is … the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.”
Marianne Williamson

      Joan,
      Thanks so much for stopping by today and sharing these words of encouragement. I am feeling much less congested after the rest I’ve allowed myself to take these past few days, and I’m delighted to know of your good health news as well! I hope you’re continuing to write and that one day you’ll decide to share some of your delightful poetry with the rest of us on a blog of your own.
      Hugs and blessings,

    These were all beautiful. I found your voice so soothing and loved just looking blearily at the pages and seeing the patterns and design while I listened. There is so much truth in these writings and I long to hear more from your most important of voices.
    I hope that you are feeling better.

      Sharon,
      How personally encouraging to learn that you enjoyed listening to me read while you looked at these pieces. Thanks so much for your visit and supportive words. I am feeling better and spent a very delightful day with my sister yesterday. Today I’ll be working ‘virtually’ with Isabel Parlett in five 15-20 minute sessions over several hours to chart a course for 2011. I figure it’s time for me to set some clear intentions to help me move forward with publishing what I write for a wider audience than I’ve ever considered before. It’s a bit scary … but exciting too!
      Hugs and blessings,

    I found myself tracing your words with the mouse while you read. I love the Havi entry. I almost went to her retreat over Thanksgiving…

      Jill,
      How FUN to find your comments here this morning! I have such fond memories of the week spent this past summer in Taos and feel so fortunate to have shared ‘living space’ with you & Luna on the Mabel Dodge Luhan grounds. Havi’s retreat tempted ME as well, but I’ve invested lots of money in myself lately and this was the first year in a while that my sister was actually in town for the holiday … so spending it with family took priority for me. Thanks so much for dropping by and sharing your reactions here with me. I feel encouraged and supported in my journey to publication.
      Hugs and blessings,
