I HOPE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO PAUSE FOR A MOMENT,
ADMIRE THE CLOUDS, CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN, GAZE AT THE STARS,
TRAVEL TO THE DESTINATION YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO VISIT,
OR JUST GET OUT TO EXPLORE YOUR OWN BACKYARD.

Happy Winter Solstice and End to 2018!

“I pause today to connect with nature and the beauty of the season. And tomorrow begins the slow and steady climb minute by minute of more light… radiant light.”

It’s a wet and gusty winter solstice here in Maine. I’ve watched all day as the rain poured down and washed away the fall snow. Winter is just beginning and I know more of the glorious white stuff will be upon us soon.

I pause today to connect with nature and the beauty of the season. And tomorrow begins the slow and steady climb minute by minute of more light… radiant light.

The time has come to slip away. A time to enjoy the festivities of the holiday with our families. A time I reserve to create space. A time to sink into the silence and stillness of winter. A period of incubation.

Happy winter solstice! Sending you warm wishes for a soulful winter season filled with moments of deep rejuvenation.

See you in 2019!

Monthly Photos of Wild Places [Oct 2018]

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

This is a monthly photography roundup of images captured while out exploring our wild places. It has been a wet, foggy autumn month. Some trees shed their leaves long ago, while others linger on thinning branches. It was such a wonderful delight to get out for a fall hike to soak in the color, the aroma, and the fog.

Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.

Still I Rise

Inspired by the words of Maya Angelou’s poem, Still I Rise, I have written my own poem of the same name.

Still I Rise

You may laugh, mock, and maim
With your language of hate
Twisting words, bending truths
But still, as my sisters before me
I rise.

Did you want to silence me?
A woman better to be seen, not heard?
I do not recognize the submission you seek
My whole heart aches for a better tomorrow
My voice echos a hopeful rally cry.

You may abuse, assault, harass, and shame
I’ve been given many reasons to hate
My eyes wide open
Face turned toward the sun like a sunflower
I choose to soak in the sunshine of love.

Does my courage offend you?
As the song in my body radiates confidence, kindness, and strength
I have felt the bitter cold, bone chilling winds of winter
Springs renewal will come again
Change is just over the next mountain

Just as the sun rises and sets
I am awakening, growing stronger each day
Because I walk, head held high
Truth pumping through my veins
And, again, I will rise.

Does my strength surprise you?
That I might dare to hold my ground
I rise
Feet planted deep in the earth
Sturdy like roots of a tree
I rise
I am my father’s daughter
I am my grammy’s girl.

To all my sisters, my brothers too
I hope you’ll comfort me, as I will for you.
I rise
Heed the warning of Mother nature,
The wisdom of our ancestors
I rise
Leaving behind the darkness of violence and fear
Together, the dawning of a new way forward
Rise
Keep rising
I rise.
