There's a lyric in a song by BOY entitled, "This is the Beginning," that goes, "Your eyes are the camera, your heart is the frame." Every time I hear this lyric I think of all the people I've ever been extremely close to and lost...especially my mother. Loss, while certain, may just be the toughest part of life because we spend years with someone, nurturing our relationship with them, the good times, the bad, the hard times, the laughter, the love, the connection, only to be left behind. What may be the point then, you might ask? The journey...making sure that your heart becomes a permanent frame to cherish all that that person has meant to you...the lessons you learned from them and them from you..,.the soul-bonding that will never be the same with one person as it is with another...the unique imprint that that individual has left upon who you are at its very core...that's what it's all other words, the love.  Love enters our live


Years ago, during a time that I was fortunate enough to have made my home in San Francisco, one of my very favorite past times was hanging out in Golden Gate Park, watching and observing the myriad of people who happened by. There were people on roller skates, tricycles, bicycles and unicycles...some dressed in clown suits, some like mimes...some who were singing for their supper and some who just sang. Something I realized back then, and again recently while people-watching at the Marina in Brookings Harbor the other day, is that even if you don't know them, people will always tell you who they merely need to observe. I remember a lady who ran around the park with a sign that read, "Free Hugs," draped around her neck, who everyone labelled as crazy, but what I realized about this woman as I watched her was that she most likely had no one at home to receive the vast amount of love she had to give and she really wanted to share this gift with humanity. She w


Marcel Proust, who penned so many insightful quotes, once wrote, " The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. " What an amazing insight this was, especially during his time. In thinking this through it boils down to the fact that everything is as we make it...see it...think it. We manifest what we think, therefore, if you are tired of your current reality, you can change the way you view it, i.e. see it through new eyes, and your reality will therefore change. I know for a fact that whenever I have made a conscious effort to see a situation in a positive light, it changes the intensity and meaning of that particular situation.  They say that you can search and move and try to discover new lands and new lives, but once you realize home is where the heart is, you will always be home.

    What is your honest opinion of yourself when you look in a mirror? Let's face it, most of us are so critical of our physical appearance because we base our opinion on society's version of the "perfect" and "acceptable" way that we should look. So, based on their criteria, when you look in a mirror and don't see a fine ass, great boobs, a slim waistline and flawless skin, do you get depressed and lose some of your all-too-important self-esteem? If you do, you are not alone. In fact, you are one of countless millions...and that is a sad commentary on our society.  Why should our looks be so important? Why do we think that if we leave the house without our makeup or in our comfy street clothes or without doing our hair, that people are going to think we are not attractive. The truth is that the person you see in the mirror is the only person whose opinion should matter. You are what you think you are and if you think you are beauti
