"We may go to the moon, but that's not very far. The greatest distance we have to cover still lies within us."

song: *Exactly* by Amy Steinberg

I am exactly where I need to be
and I am so glad to be here
So joyous you are here with me
So grateful to know you
So happy to love you
And so incredibly lucky
for everything I experience in my life

my stars

When I look up
I see
All these sparkling stars
Shining down on me
In my darkest nights
They guide me home
Lead me to saftey
And tuck me in tight

These glistening stars
Hold my hand
Dry my tears
And make sure everything is alright

Spread all across the sky
These stars shine down on me
Always reminding me I am not alone

They shine so brilliantly
Making me smile
Bringing laughter to my heart
And lifting me up

Thank you stars
for looking down on me
For knowing when I needed you
Even though I never said a word

Thank you for holding the space
Letting me just be
And thank you for not letting me lose my way

I do not know what I would do without all of you!

The writing is the easy part. My hand moves easily across the paper. I know how to shape my letters effortlessly. Writing, that is easy. The difficult part is the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that I try to put down on the paper. How do I do them justice?

How do I express in words the way my stomach is filled with this buzzing feeling when you look into my eyes? It is like a wave of happiness pouring over me inside. Is there a word that can be used to help you understand this and feel it the way I do?

How do I put onto paper the safe feeling I felt standing in your kitchen engaged in conversation? Thoughts and feelings moving back and forth effortlessly between us. Such a simple thing, yet evoking so much within me.

How do I even begin to explain the sensation that grabbed a hold of my entire body when our lips pressed up against each other standing in your doorway? The softness that began with that simple little touch and spread out to ever limb in my body. How do I put into words that I did not want that moment to end?

How do you write out the incredible feeling of truly being seen for who you are? The feeling of being appreciated and valued? How do you explain how that makes you feel?

You see, writing is the easy part. Pouring out my feelings and emotions and having you understand them the way I feel them, that is the tough part. How do I do that?

Fort Myers, FL

I invite you to come on in
sit down
Open up your heart
and dream
Listen to what it is that is truly calling you
there is so much possibility
Go ahead
Dream big
Dream a little bigger
Stretch your mind
Stretch your heart
Feel all the goodness that comes
from dreaming

I have been trying to come up with my word for 2010.
The one word I want to manifest for the entire year.
The one word that speaks to my heart and calls directly to me.

After January 1st I struggled to find this word.
I felt lost and unsure of myself.
But today I am standing on a more solid ground.

Connect is my word for 2010

Connect with myself
Get back to who I am and put myself out there in the world
Connect with nature
Feel the inspiration that is out there and let it come into my soul
Connect with my family
Get to know them on a more intimate level
Connect with a creative tribe
Dig knee deep into inspiration and be truly seen
Connect with love
Feel what it really means to be loved

What is your word for 2010?

back to me

I am going back to me
To discover and enjoy all that unfolds before me
To stand tall in who I am
Smile for the good things
And embrace all the beauty that surrounds me
I am taking that first step
And I am not looking back
I am going back to me
Back to where I deserve to be

bringing you back

The beauty of life
is that you just never know
It could be a small glimpse
that catches your eye
Or a scent that brings you back
A whirlwind of emotions
Evoked from the heart
Tugging at you
Sending you back
To a time
To a place
To a moment
Where life was filled with wonder
Magic abounded
And the richness of your heart
Exploded with joy
