Where Did You Grow Roots This Year?

2013_12_31_treeroots

There is this amazing group of trees on my walk around my neighborhood in the morning, each of them with different root patterns that called to me this morning. Maybe they will call to you too: Where did you grow roots this year? Did those roots strengthen you or are they holding you back? What roots do you want to deepen, uproot or grow this coming year?

Wishing you a day of celebrating all the roots you grew in 2013 and a meaningful, joyous, and love-filled 2014.

The Real Meaning Behind Labor Day and Work

“Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it. ~ Buddha ~ Photo by Mary Marcdante

“Your work is to discover your work
and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.”
~ Buddha ~

What if Buddha’s perspective is the real meaning behind Labor Day? “Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart give yourself to it.” How might your life be different if you made that one of your daily intentions?

I took this photo on a vacation in Provincetown, MA many years ago and when I discovered this quote by Buddha, the memory of watching this cook make malasadas flashed back to me in an instant. Have you ever been in the presence of someone who makes their work seem like a prayer of reverence and gratitude? Wishing the same for you and me and the world.

Happy Labor Day Weekend.

Inspiring Your Present Moment…

“I see beauty all around, and I’m reminded once again…
Here and now I have all that I need.
Here and now this is where I am meant to be.”
~ Jana Stanfield ~

A sunset walk at Torrey Pines State Beach Reserve this past weekend and Jana Stanfield’s song “Here and Now,” inspired me to create a photo collage for you from my photos. It’s a great way to take an inspiration break at your computer when you make it a desktop background. [Right click on the photo and then click "Set as desktop background."] Enjoy!
