It has been a joy visiting with you over this past year on my blog. I hope you’ve discovered food for thought, tidbits of information to stretch your mind. I know I have.
Over the next months, I’m taking time off to regroup and plan my next step to better serve you in the blogosphere. I look forward to returning with even more relevant content and improved opportunities for interaction.
Thank you for your support. I’ve learned a great deal from you, my readers, and have a genuine fondness for the relationships I’ve developed here.
I’ll see you soon!
In the meantime, be well, and may you experience the best relationships ever.

Never the Spirit was born; the Spirit shall cease to be never;
Never was time it was not;
End and Beginning are dreams!
Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the Spirit forever;
Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems!
– The Bhagavad Gita
Your Sense of Spirit/Soul
What do you believe about the human soul or spirit? Do you feel a part of you remains after leaving your body behind? What is it that remains?

We’ve all heard the famous “No Fear” slogan. Isn’t it amazing how an advertisement can get inside our head and wreak havoc? I mean, really, who are we kidding? I don’t know about you, but personally I don’t trust anyone who pretends they have no fear! KNOW FEAR, though, makes me want to snuggle up and get closer.
I think of a little ditty on a piece of driftwood a friend made for my dad. He had it hanging on the wall of his cabin in Islamorada in the Florida Keys. It said: “Drink for you know not whence you came nor why. Drink for you know not where you go nor when”.
I don’t know about the drinking part, although that was certainly the flavor of the week in the Florida Keys for decades. But, what about the “you know not where you go nor when”?
Spiritual and religious beliefs notwithstanding, the specter of death in itself is enough to cause a significant amount of fear and trembling in we mortals.
