A Bit About Me

My photo
Welcome -- It's January 2016 and I am not giving up on the idea that people may appreciate and benefit from some of my story. I began in 2008 in a quest to blog my reflective experience through the lens of my virtues. Life, while full of rich lessons, did not provide the time and space needed to blog. Some days I wish I had a record of it all, other days I am grateful that I did not make a public exhibition. However, today, I commit to power-up the joy, meaning and purpose in my life. I hope that you will find it inspiring and helpful in your own journey. As a Virtues Project Master Facilitator and Grace Coach, it is my mission in life to help change the culture of our caring. As a humanity, the quality of our relationships is what truly matters. I aim to blog about virtues, what they mean to me and how they inspire, or challenge my life. Follow along with me if you are curious or care to do the same. Leave comments if you can, pose questions or link me if my blog has encouraged you. I look forward to connecting.

Echos of Love

"Love is perfect in its design"

I believe that Love is a measurable animated force that interfaces us with our Spirit. It lives at the core of who we are and speaks through each of us. Love is all we truly are but it seems to have eluded our general comprehension. It is within us and around us, yet it cannot be touched. We can reject it, we can embrace it, we can grow in its presence and we can fade from the lack of it.

Love is perfect in its design. It can be pregnant and empty. It's ethereal, subtle and intangible yet so full it can hijack any agenda. It is pure and Heavenly and yet it can be Hell. We can hunger for it and consequently be broken by it. We can move in and through love like miners, carefully inspecting, cracking open and pushing our way through the substance with purposeful rigor in order to determine it's purity, it's rarity, it's worth.

​We move from place to place not really knowing what we are searching for or what to even look at, but our hearts know, don't they? Our heart knows when love is present or not. I believe that one day we will pare a human down to the very essence and love & light will be all there is to measure. ​ Our love is so enormous and like breath, it expands & contracts ~ through us, in us, with us &  for us.

"There is a place in the universe where our love unites. I feel it in my core and in my bones. I call it Source. It is my God, my Soul, my everything. It is pure LOVE"
