untold stories...

do you ever
sit and wonder
what it is really like
to live
on the other side
of the tracks?

Selah's Angels: (a collective random act of kindness)...

(photo:  stephen marley)
i really thought long and hard over these last few weeks
about what i would like to do for the third anniversary
of my necessary room, coming up later this week.
can you imagine that showing love to one another
was all i could come up with?  go figure. ;)

i'm over here, vibin' to the voice of stephen marley
Hail-e Se-las-sie is the cha-aa-pel-llll
po-wer of the Tri-ni-ty-y...

oh, how he reminds me of his daddy (bob marley)
yet still original in his own unique way.
love dem both. (but i digress)...

 well i was over here thinking...thinking about how
even Fada Bob experienced living with cancer
while on his human journey, yet.
he kept on traveling around the globe
spreading JAH's message of peace and love.
the thought was so inspiring...

my heart began to overflow with compassion
for all those living around us today
whose lives have been touched by cancer
(and also the loved ones who support them)
prayers sent up.

and i thought to myself, maybe i could reach out to Selah's Angels
to help me sprinkle a little extra love into their lives...

*If you would like to join Selah's Angels in sending one anonymous greeting card (handmade or store bought) to someone who has been touched by cancer, please leave a comment here or send me an email at  The angels will be showering a selected few individuals with handwritten words of love in the mail on before Saturday, January 7, 2012.  As is customary, no future commitment is required.  Give thanks to all of you who help make these collective random acts of kindness not only a possibility, but a reality.

one love. always.

pure + innocent...

i cradle my own
with infinite joy and fullness,
melting into each other
my heart overflows.
oh how i feel blessed.

but what about them?
the pure and innocent children
who endure brutal victimisation
at the hands of unrighteous men.
who will cradle them?

*Did you know that every 5 hours a child dies from abuse or neglect in the USA -- the highest/worse child abuse rate in the "industrialised" world?  (exhale).  prayers sent up for safety of all children.  one love.

conscious friday...

it surely wouldn't be a friday in my necessary room without some warm and easy reggae music.

listening to a marley-tosh combination, once again, on this blessed day...pure bliss.

one love. always.

Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment,
I know this is a wonderful moment.
