seek love, beauty & kindness today

“I’m big because I’m connected to the universe, and the universe is connected to me.” —Neil deGrasse Tyson

We are all BIG.  We can all affect big CHANGE even in the life of one other being.  We are so much bigger than this election.  We are bigger than we can possibly imagine.  The hardest part is BELIEVING this is so.  WE can solve the biggest issues before us and our families, it’s not our government.  It’s not ONE person.  It’s US.  It’s ALL of us working together.  The AMERICAN SPIRIT has proven this over and over.

We all want to THRIVE and to do so it takes TEAMWORK. 

SEEK LOVE, BEAUTY & KINDNESS TODAY.

We’re all going to be just fine, no matter what the headlines are tomorrow.

Autumn in Vermont, actually my neighborhood.

For many of you this is what you’re seeing outside your own front door.  However, for those of you around the world, I wanted to give you a glimpse of New England autumn.  It’s magical—my favorite time of year.  I was born October 12th, 1966 and autumn is when I feel most “at home” in my life.  Here’s a glimpse.  I wish the vintage Cadillac was mine, alas it is not.  I hope you enjoy the images.

Burlington, Vermont—Tuesday October 28th, 2014

It was a rather ordinary autumn day in Burlington, Vermont but the light and weather shifts were really wild.  It rained until mid-afternoon and when it cleared it was warm and still.  As the day progressed the light became startlingly beautiful.  Our whole backyard glowed and it had an eerie quality.  The colors were uniquely intense and the sunset had people standing outside or heading down to the lake to watch the drama unfold.  I am so grateful that my mother taught me to see beauty in so many ways…both ordinary and extraordinary.
