Is it all a Paradox?

It seems I play with dualities lately.  I am increasingly more and more aware of the balance of yes and no and working with the opposites to bring a united front. It's seeing myself as oh so small at times and then in a flip, realizing the immensity of my greater…

Laundry Day

There’s something about freshly washed laundry to spark a memory. As I was hanging up my wet clothes to dry in the fresh air I remembered being with Mom on one visit where we exchanged favorite items we once valued with each other. She gifted me a scarf from her…
