Keen gleams the wind, and all the ground
Is bare and chapped with bitter cold.
The ruts are iron; the fish are found
Encased in ice as in a mold.
-Charles De Kay (1848-1935)

“It is never about how good your voice is; it is only about feeling the urge to sing, and then having the courage to do it with the voice you are given.”
— Katie in ‘True to Form’ by Elizabeth Berg
How often have you allowed fear and your inner critic to stop you from doing something you were inspired to do?
Helen Keller said, “Life is either a grand adventure or nothing.” When we allow fear and criticism to stop us in our tracks, we give up that grand adventure. What a waste!
“Be an all-out, not a hold-out.”
— Norman Vincent Peale
A Note from the Universe
Wow! What an incredible run you’ve had! Lots of “firsts,” tons of breakthroughs, countless miracles. Stones overturned, doors unlocked, and journeys just begun. It feels like I’ve waited an eternity for all that’s now happening. (Actually, I have.)
Do you have any idea how many millenniums, billenniums, trillenniums have gone by without you in the world? Thinking the kind of thoughts you now think, doing the kind of stuff you now do, and illuminating all the nooks and crannies (n-o-o-o-o, I didn’t almost say “crooks and grannies”) of the planet I couldn’t otherwise reach?
Thanks, and have a great day!
Your fellow Adventurer,

“The heart outstrips the clumsy senses, and sees – perhaps for an instant, perhaps for long periods of bliss — an undistorted and more veritable world.”
-Evelyn Underhill, 1955
The heart has its own intelligence. Paul Pearsall wrote an amazing book called “The Heart’s Code” where he talks about all the research he has done that proves that the heart actually “thinks.” This is not just an organ in our body that serves a function for us to live. The heart is a sophisticated tool that can help us to live better, more beautifully.
Daily Tarot: The Hermit
Smooth your way through the day by being as respectable as time and circumstance require. Fit in, look and sound the part that you’ve been assigned, and get a lot done with very little or no resistance. In general, being respectable can be a good thing and serve you well, especially when dealing with new people or with those who don’t know you very well.
