Full Bloom

“Deepest joy is like a flower….beautiful in essence.” ~Tony Samara Dear Universe, I have discovered—or rather re-discovered—something about myself.

Like an Hourglass

“And life’s like an hourglass, glued to the table…” ~Anna Nalick Dear Universe, When I was a little girl, I was fascinated by the egg timer my mom had in our kitchen.  It was a miniature hourglass with neon blue sand inside.  I would often flip the timer over just so I could watch the […]

Turn, Turn, Turn

“To everything – turn, turn, turn There is a season – turn, turn, turn And a time for every purpose under heaven…” ~The Byrds Dear Universe, It seems I spent most of the past six months wishing for spring and summer to be here. March went on with its sluggish pace as it always seems […]
