What You Believe About Homosexuality Doesn’t Matter

Nice poem!

∙ tenderheartmusings ∙

pour yourself
in me
till I am brimming
with you

flood in
a little more
till I overflow
with what a lifetime
can’t contain

as you slowly
trickle down my being
keep flowing in
till all I can feel
is you

when less
has been spoken
more has been heard,
take two steps closer
and revive me
with your touch

without a sound
awaken me
with your whisper
and remind me
what I have forgotten
remind me of you

with a paint brush then
consume me
in your painting
till I am one
with your colours
guiding me
with brushstrokes
take me home

into mine

overwhelm me

A Tornado? Here?

Tornado in November?

Which Way Now 101

“ . . . high winds . . . 12:00 . . . headed this way . . . possible tornado . . . till 3:00 . . . some heavy rain . . .”

I stared wide eyed at the park ranger on the beach talking to our neighbor. “Did you get all that?” he asked when he turned my way.

A tornado watch! We were aware that the hurricane season is over at the end of November, but a tornado season? Checking a Florida disaster website, I discovered that there are two tornado seasons in Florida. The summer season ends in September and the Deadly Spring Season (yes, folks, that’s what it’s called) starts in February. Where does that leave us in December?

It leaves us on a tiny scrap of land called Long Key, where one could sprint – if one was capable of sprinting, and there…

300 Word Limit

IMG_2454Reach new heights

Savor life’s peak experiences

There is beauty as far as the eye can see

Stand in the strength of Your True Nature

Be uplifting

Follow the trails of the Wise Ones

Protect and preserve timeless beauty,

silence, solitude, serenity,

flowing rivers,

ancient trees.

Rise above it all

Make solid decisions

Climb beyond your limitations

Leave no stone unturned

Never take life for granite

Get to the point

Patience, patience, patience

Life has its ups and downs

Let your troubles vanish into thin air

To summit all up

It’s the journey step by step

Rock on!

–Ilan Shamir

Nelson Mandela | The Man Who Lived

In honor of the great Nelson Mandela.

Nelson Mandela

The Man. The cause. The Legend.

On the 5th of December 2013, Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first black president and anti-apartheid icon died aged 95.

This anti-apartheid revolutionary, turned philanthropist and politician, helped a divided and isolated South Africa find its footing in the world and forge some degree of unity within.

Unlike other leaders, Mandela did not aim to punish, but rather to reconcile. He never looked for enemies, instead he searched for allies in his attempt to dismantle the legacy of apartheid, working against institutionalised racism, to alleviate poverty and inequality and to forge a basis for racial reconciliation in South Africa.

Having served twenty-seven years in prison for his political commitments and relentless struggle against the apartheid government, he was granted release in 1990 as a result of international lobbying for his freedom as well as due to internal civil strife. Four years later he led the ANC to victory and…

Day 341: Friendly Reminder(s)

Friendly Reminders? Do you expect quick responses? Check this out…

The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally

The title of this post was inspired by an e-mail I got from somebody, last week.

This person had e-mailed me a question, asking about possible therapy supports for someone. When I didn’t answer back within a day, she sent me another e-mail, starting with the title phrase — “Friendly reminder” — asking for the information again.

I took note of that, because quick responses are something that matter to me, a lot.

I sometimes feel a lot of stress, when I don’t get back to people quickly enough. That’s true at work and elsewhere (including here in the blogosphere, I must confess).

Of course, that leads to the question, “What is quickly enough?”  My supervisor, at work, has suggested that I ease off on myself, and allow myself more time and room to get back to people.  That’s always an important, friendly reminder from her,  because, in my work…
