WHEN I WAS NOT MYSELF   There is beauty in my soul And kindness in my heart A sadness for mistakes I made When I was not myself   It’s easy to go astray And lose oneself When you follow not your spirit Or the whispers in your head   The desire not to hurt

Remember the laughs? The good times, the bad times Thrown together  A friend of a friend Somehow we stuck together I couldn't understand the jibes I still can't Prejudice and ignorance They made you feel ashamed You didn't want to be you It still pains m

I can't believe it! May 8th, the day we moved into the apartment, 2013 began the first year of the four year plan. So we are now into our second year and pretty much on track. Finances still need work but everything else is falling into place.  The basic o

Heart smiles, for me, are positive moments in time that nurture the expansion of my heart in terms of spirit. These experiences have a lasting and sometimes profound influence on how I view the world. They restore my faith in humanity, nudge me to believe

I recently finished Adventures in Mother-Sitting, by Doreen Cox. It left me astonished by the level of its intensity and how much it helped me to see my life as a caretaker and to learn to grow past that, taking the joy and memories with me, but learning a

One word? Yes, just one word. Come on, we all know it, only some of us really struggle with that one little word. Have you guessed yet? That little pesky word, no. So short, yet so troublesome. OK, so I'm not very good at saying no. I have had to practice,

Private life, public life, striking the balance? Simply your life week. Well, this is what I've been doing for a while. I think. OK, OK, I'm still working on it. It's not easy, but I'm trying. Trouble is there's always too much to do, and it's hard to let

She is tender and warm. Arrives on a morning-fresh Without light knock or bell Like a whiff of tea and toast Upon a hot summer breeze. She is tender and warm. We perch on auburn-dabbed cliffs, shoulder against shoulder Study each other sideways Relax, with

In case you don't know, prednisone is a steroid used to treat all manner of inflammation. It's great for that. The problem is that it's also poison. Besides causing insomnia, acne, and a host of other immediate side effects, it also does major damage to th

A tear runs down my face Eyes brimming with sadness The loss of little ones Whose wings will not open Nor learn to fly on air Brighten the world with joy A life lost, world shattered For lack of civility Loss much too heartbreaking Lacking care for another

The end of the world as we know it I'd meant to write this post sooner, but here goes. What would you do if it was the end of the world? Me, I'd hold on to my dear ones. The end of the world, much written about, much talked about, and much fantasised. Not

I care not what your race is for we all come from the same foundation. I care not what religion you practice, for all paths lead to the same source. http://www.martamoranbishop.com/3/post/2012/10/what-do-you-care-about.html

Dear body of mine, Haven't you and I struggled? We became enemies. I know it's not your fault, you just grew, did what you were supposed to do. But boy, did I hate those looks, the old perverts who wanted a slice of you. They made me feel dirty, I wanted t

What a day it's been. What a week, a month, it never stops. Today I did something I never expected to do. I've been strutting my stuff. Ahem. I won't say much more. If you follow a certain S.E. Lauran on Facebook, you'll know more than enough. Thanks dear!

A few months ago I read this quote, “Just when things look like they are falling apart, they may actually be falling together. During stormy times we sometimes feel like we are losing everything. Maybe this stormy time is waking us to something better.” I

Just seen this article on social sharing posted by one of my publishers. Timely indeed as I've just heard a person, who had befriended me, then proceeded to harass my friends, and attempted to find out where I live, has turned one shade nastier. How to hur

Well sometimes. Many of us will go through despair such we truly believe we will never recover. That one trauma, heartache, loss too much. The last drop that will sink your ship. Then a rainbow lights up our lives and wakes us up. In my case, a French conn

  Simple things bring happiness. When I realize this, I have my best days. Those little things that stroke our souls and make us smile – imagine carving out a portion of every day to include them. A day without yoga or movement for me means I may be stif

“Never. Don’t do it,” my roommate Gilles said. “You’re not right for it.”   Oh yeah? I thought.  You negative pompous man, you. Okay, he was right about one thing. Height was not one of my endowments. Like all of my family, I was born of short and stocky

Many people now are reinventing themselves after 50. Although I am only 49 (but so close to 50!), I feel that my life has gone in a totally different direction. I have had some of the best jobs that a person could have and yet I still find myself taking ad
