Beauty; my mission and it is not what you think

Beauty.

Bring beauty into being, simplicity into lives, the realness and rawness of beauty.

Not the cover girl version, or the sexy or manufactured images of beauty we are sold.

Real beauty, beauty in words, books, images, truth, loves and friendships.  As in the innocence of a little babe exploring this great world, the beauty in the cry of a mother facing loss.  The real-ness, the authentic beauty of what is real, sacred and imbued with spirit.

The beautiful strength that comes from facing fears and growing through them.

The acorn is not afraid of the massive oak it might become, it just is, and grows as it is able.  So do I.

Beautiful, strong, growing, giving and filled with love.

So, come here when you need beauty, or have beauty to share, the world is simply us, the more beauty we create, the more beautiful it is.

Precipice

Precipice.
Today that is where I stand.
Much as I did 14 years ago on the rim of the Grand Canyon.
Looking down into unfathomable depths, unbridgeable gaps.

Then, I merely hiked to the bottom and back. A personal challenge, beautiful memory and party anecdote.

Today, it is different. My baby goes in for an EEG tomorrow.

My baby.

Hopeful epilepsy isn’t uttered and I can quiet another nagging voice inside my head.

Hopeful, our reality won’t forever change.

I gave up years ago, the bliss of worrying for only oneself, the naïveté that my children would be unharmed.

I have lost babes.
I have held both of my sons, carrying them into operating rooms.
Tomorrow’s procedure is without pain or blood,
Yet it kills a little bit of my naïveté yet again.
My reality has become seeing love and beauty, in all moments.
Thankfulness at what we have, whatever it may be.
Focusing on that which is real, that is, the health and happiness of my family.
Let it be.
