Welcome to my peace filled space. It is my pleasure to share energy here:)
This month of April I am celebrating *Passion*: experience it, explore it, allow it to permeate every single area of my life. Interesting because passion elicits both fear and excitement; to experience it fully I must be unguarded, unfettered by past anything, completely in the now. Physical passion, yes..but also passion of life, of living…
“Nail me to the cross / of love / with your tongue / and blunt / kisses”

*you want passion in your life..good God check out his words, let them wash over you, sink into your soul!!!*
I woke very excited to meet a friend for brunch at one of my favorite restaurants.
What a gorgeous day!
The sunshine greeted me warmly as I exited the boat. I wore a sundress with sandals and the daintiest anklet, so that sun could kiss my skin and reflect into the jewels on my anklet. I said thank you, Sun..for such brilliant kisses..and I let that brilliance soak into my essence.
(Opened my heart to the day..exactly as it would be presented to me!)
Driving down the harbor road to breakfast, I noticed that the ocean waters were calm, and I could see my islands off in the distance. Such a journey–some of my most ecstatic, joy filled, peace filled moments happened on that beach, in those ocean waters, on passage to the islands, at the islands. I stopped off at the beach, flipped off my sandals, noticed that my anklet glistened in the sunshine, and walked barefoot on the beach. I was soaking up the sun, listening to the lull of gentle ocean waves lapping against the shore, my heart full of love of all around me and gratitude for the experiences I’ve had.
(Each experience brought me to this moment..right here..barefoot in the sand on this beach!)
I arrived at the restaurant..an eclectic little cafe with amazing energy, a vibrant atmosphere, and delicious food. My friend greeted me with a slight hug, and we sat down to talk and eat.
I allowed the vibe of the room to enter my heart..the colors, the aromas, the other worldliness of it all. While my friend spoke I couldn’t help but gaze into his green eyes– such intense eyes–and think of all that I hold dear that is green.
So much on the menu appealed to me, but I knew that what I truly wanted was a bowl of fresh, seasonal fruit. And some delicious homemade bread..The fruit and bread (cranberry hazelnut) arrived..Such a treat! The colors of berries, pineapple, cantaloupe appealed to me..and I allowed each color to soak into my being, mixing with the sunbeams and glistening jewels of my anklet. I ate each piece of fruit individually…savoring each bite. The ripe berry would explode in my mouth, deepening my smile, making my eyes light up with pleasure. The juicy pineapple splashed sweet over my tongue. I slowly sucked the grape, letting it burst with flavor..and the cantaloupe, well he said he didn’t like cantaloupe, so I let it sit…
As I ate, slowly, letting the morning and the meal enliven my senses..my friend devoured his food. He ate as rapidly as he talked; what he spoke about was interesting, enlightening..but also filler…Lots and lots of “I’m so busy, life is busy, busy, busy, busy”..interspersed with questions, wisdom, laughter…When I finished the fruit, I tried the bread..oh my! Sensory overload..hazelnut with cranberries layered with all that glistens..almost too much..and my smile widened..lit the room..
Of course, the waitress responded with amazing service..her pleasure..oh, no..my pleasure..surely!
(I noticed that he inhaled his food, inhaled this moment..but I continued to savor, relish, enjoy..each and every bite, all that he was sharing..all that was being presented to me…)
When we finished eating, we went out to the sunshine to walk a bit and say goodbye. I lifted my face to sun (Thank you, Sun! I love you, Sun!..thank you, Nature for the beautiful bounty I have shared!)..so happy…so full of life!!
With his hands on my bare back pulling me in closely, he reached down and kissed me..a gentle, quick, barely brush my lips kiss…
I knew he would kiss me. So, I spent the morning lovingly, joyfully layering this specific kiss. From the moment I woke until the moment our lips touched..I focused on experiencing beauty filled layers of life..to share.
(How can I share with you what I do not have, so I gather it to share!)
I felt the electric shock of his hands on my smooth, warm skin. And I felt his lips brush mine, assuredly..quickly because he had somewhere else to be…
Did he feel Light emanate from my Body? Did he taste the joy of life on my lips…the freshness, sweetness, juiciness in my tongue…and then sunshine and moonbeams as we released…
I cannot say…
(This is about me..about life..)
When I stepped back I Felt glass shatter all around me..shards falling from the heavens to the ground below my feet. Tinkling. Glistening. Falling.
Layers of life crashing to the ground..
Some stale notion, barrier, fear…broke..millions of pieces..
One multi-layered kiss..
My pleasure! Absolutely:)
