Today, I am truly grateful for the kindness of others…. awareness and appreciation

Saturday, I enjoyed a day in a “classroom” full of people…
lead along by a wise, insightful and fascinating teacher,
Angeles Arrien,
the author of an incredible (!!!) book that I just started to read on Sunday,
“The Second Half of Life, Opening the 8 Gates of Wisdom”

I am simply stunned by this book….
…..stunned, stunned, stunned…
the ideas, the insights, the imagery,
the tapping of the wisdom of varied ancient and contemporary cultures,
the practical reflections and helpful suggestions and applications…
a gigantic WOW!
to the wisdom and insight in this book!!!!


In that classroom,  there were lots and lots of people listening, learning, discussing and  exchanging encouraging ideas… interesting, curious, engaged people… wondering, exploring, reflecting people…. doing their best to live with sincerity, honesty and kindness…

What a very special day…
so much kindness,
so much empathy and support,
a very special day

Today, I am truly thankful for the kindness of others….
Actually, I’m thankful each and every day…
living with the potential
for the many opportunities for offering and receiving
encouragement,  support and kindness


Today, I am truly grateful
for the kindness of others
…a very special day…

      I just finished creating some pages that you might like…created with the purpose of trying to find new directions/purposes now that I’m not working at teaching school…to find other meaningful endeavors…here’s a link… you might enjoy them… they’re called “Being and Doing…Nurtured by Messages from Flowers” …about developing each and balancing them (they’re up in the Greenhouse tab…where I put new ideas, ideas that are sprouting and growing etc…lots of seeds up there… : ) )
