A Time To Reflect

What a week!  I feel this vibe that the world is in shock.  Neda, a young woman who lost her life while taking a stance for freedom.  Farrah Fawcett who lost her life to cancer and Michael Jackson whose heart stopped beating when he was getting ready to resume his professional life.

They were also many other losses this week that we don’t know about.  In fact these losses were huge for the people whose lives were affected but we just don’t know about.

Every day all around us our neighbors and distant peoples go through unimaginable things; good and bad.

I remember when my husband was first diagnosed with cancer, walking around the streets of West Hollywood with the sun shinning and the beautiful people walking by me on their phones and in their immaculate outfits without a clue of the desperation building inside of me.

I remember thinking how odd it all was.  I was afraid of losing what was the most precious to me and nobody walking by me knew that.

I’m not blaming or suggesting that we all need to know everything that happens to everyone but I’m suggesting that maybe we don’t know where people are coming from.  What is happening in their lives and so before we react maybe we should be open to find out.  We should all take a pause.

I feel the world is in shock.  Environmental and financial changes, war, death.  I hope all of this will amount to an awakening to our fundamental needs; love, peace and stability and that we come out a little healthier a little happier.


Life’s Big Dance

Every day is a day and a chance to live.  None of us know when we won’t get to laugh anymore with our friends and family or enjoy a refreshing breeze. 

Farrah Fawcett knew she would probably die but she continued to fight for her life.  Michael Jackson didn’t know that he’s heart was getting ready to stop beating.

I’m sitting outside and the birds are chirping and the sun is doing its dance as it casts its warmth on one side of the yard and then without warning withdraws its light and moves on.

And so is life.  Casting its light and then removing it.
