Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground. - Rumi

Just Begin

This blog has been a year in the making. Finally, I am beginning a new project close to my heart. Children,  being a parent, teaching, art, life, sharing knowledge, learning to blog - making my ideas visible to share with others.
A first entry - a tabula rasa. I stare at this page and almost blank out at the enormity of taking on the task of sounding eloquent and passionate and clear. Yet once I begin moving forward I keep moving, each word easier to type than the last.  The shape of an idea forming as the words flow onto the page.
This is about hope, love and beauty everyday - a journey and reflections of practice. The growth that self reflection can bring about.
I work with parents, children of all ages, teachers and people whose lives coincide with mine on the path of life.  We all have a gift and something to share with each other, sometimes the "gift" of the experience isn't known at the time it is happening, but our brains remember and the knowledge is available when we must have it.  Consistently, I am reminded of the sacredness of life.  I long to be an integral part of  change on this planet.
