Favorite Quote:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
-Marianne Williamson

like a butterfly;
on a flower.
like rain;
when it showers.
like a face;
filled with joy.
like a girl;
and her boy.
like a runner;
in a race.
like the solving;
of a case.
like a statue;
in the park.
like at midnight;
when dogs bark.
like the moon;
out at night.
like a victory;
without a fight.
like the sun;
brightens the day.
like little children;
at play.
