you’re being guided to learn…


“Now is the right time to study and learn. Whether this involves classroom studies or learning and growing as a person, you’re being guided to grow, listen and read.”
Your Angel’s Message:
The emergence of this card validates that now is the right time for you to get involved with new activities. Enrich your life and your soul by learning new skills or embracing different ideas. Perhaps it’s been a while since you’ve learned something new. 

If you’re feeling a little apprehensive then the emergence of this card is a wonderful omen. You have Divine support around you right now and through on into the future. Go for it! You will succeed. 
What You Should Do:
You may be feeling guided to try something new, to enhance your skills for work or to join or continue in a class that’s of interest to you. (May I suggest learning to read Angel Cards as my Angel Visionary Apprentice?) No matter what the field of learning is, the angels urge you to keep on walking that path. Become the best you you can be and soak up this wonderful and progressive energy like a sponge. This card can also indicate that now is the time to apply something you have learned to your life. The message within is that you shouldn’t run before you can walk. Relax and enjoy the whole learning process. Stay focused on the here and now. 
Your Affirmation:
“I’ve been thinking about learning something new. Now is the right time for this. I know that my angels are guiding me and supporting my spiritual and mental growth in every way.”


Only you can tell your story…

And: “When you’re writing a book, you don’t really think about it critically. You don’t want to know too well what you’re doing. First, you write the book, then you find the justification for it. The book is constructed as a conversation, with someone doing most of the talking and someone doing most of the listening.”
American novelist E.L. Doctorow

American novelist E.L. Doctorow
He wrote: “Everything is held together with stories. That is all that is holding us together, stories and compassion.”

He said: “I’m not writing about nature. I’m writing about humanity. And if I have a subject, it is justice. And the rediscovery of the manifold way in which our lives can be shaped by the recovery of a sense of reverence for life.”

How to find a friend…

sorry For What My Face said

Read faces; Ask these questions and LISTEN:

What excites you right now? This is a question that has a wide range of possible answers. It gives others the ability to give with a work-related answer, or talk about their kids, or their new boat, or basically anything that excites them.

What are you looking forward to? This question works for the same reason, but is more forward-looking than backward-looking, allowing others to choose from a bigger set of possible answers.

What’s the best thing that happened to you this year? Similar to the previous two, but reversed: more backward-looking than forward-looking. Regardless, it’s an open-ended question that gives others a wealth of answers to choose from.

Where did you grow up? This question dives into others’ backgrounds (but in a much less assertive and loaded way than “Where are you from?”) and allows them to answer with simple details from childhood or to engage in their story of how they got to where they are right now and what they’re doing.

What do you do for fun? This question steers the conversation away from work, unless of course they are lucky enough to do for work what they’d be doing for fun anyway. Even then, it’s understood as a non-work question and the most likely answers will probably establish non-work ties.

Who is your favorite superhero? This might seem random, but it’s one of my favorites. Occasionally, asking this question has led me to bond over the shared love of a character, but more often you’ll find a shared connection or two in the reason for why the other person chose that particular character … or why they’re not really into superheroes.

Is there a charitable cause you support? Another big, open-ended question (assuming they support at least one charitable cause). It’s important to define support as broader than financial donations, as support might be in the form of volunteering or just working to raise awareness. You’re also really likely to either find shared ground or find out about a cause you didn’t know about.

What’s the most important thing I should know about you? This one is effective for similar reasons as many of the above, plus it gives the broadest possible range from which they can choose. It can come off as a little forthright, so when to use it depends on a lot of contextual clues.

Listening is my Benediction


Listening is my Benediction

Instead of my own a-jeanne-da
I’ll listen.

Instead of imagi-nation
I’ll listen.

Instead of analy-sis
I’ll listen.

Instead of teach-er
I’ll listen.

Exit the teacher
enter the student

open to learning
open to honoring you.




#1 Beginning

I am lost again.

Find eternity
Taste the air.

Open to energy.

Begin the birth.

Move on oxygen.

I’ve Been Made

Photo on 2-26-16 at 1.38 PM

I’ve been maid
And I’ve been made.

I’ve been stayed
And I’ve been staid.

Some words God
will never speak.
(no matter how hard you listen)

Beauty can both
shout and whisper
(Still it says nothing)

You are you
and will always be you.
(made by Him)

“Some words God will never speak
no matter how hard you listen,”….

“Beauty can both shout and whisper.
Still it says nothing.
You are you and will always be you.”

My Song:

What is an artist?


See with third eye

Breathe in the Spirit

Blossom with passion

Perceive light and shadow



Create like the creator’s daughter

Celebrate diversity!

KAFKA and his little advice for writers (good for modern bloggers too): “It is not necessary to leave your room. Stay seated at your table and listen. Listen not even: wait. Do not wait, only slow down and be calm. […]

A similar statement by PASCAL goes like this: “So I have often said that all human unhappiness comes from one reason, namely, that they are unable to remain at rest alone in their room.”
