Invisible Fences

I know a guy who has worn round-toed boots his whole life. Recently, he bought a pair of really (in my opinion) nice looking square-toed boots. Not too square, just square-ish.

Receiving Life’s Gifts

I’ve experienced several rather beautiful, heart & soul expanding experiences this week, so it’s no surprise that during this morning’s meditation I found myself contemplating receiving, appreciation and gratitude.
