”Home is a place we all must find, child. It’s not just a place where you eat or sleep. Home is knowing. Knowing your mind, knowing your heart, knowing your courage. If we know ourselves, we’re always home, anywhere.” ~Glenda the Good Witch
Hello my wonderful friends how was your week?
The other day during a practice with Toto (aka Cami) I thought about a retreat in SoCal I had attended this last January 6 months ago and a question I returned home with. The question being “How am I going to get more grounded and rooted here on the Oregon coast?” my new home
Retreats are good in the way they give you oppportunities to reflect on the direction your life is going yellow brick road (have you ever attended one?)
That being said I am happy to see that six months later & with just a tad bit of effort on my part am feeling a little more grounded here.
Halfway into 2017 I reflect on the year and see how music has been an important thread in my life and now it’s providing more for me in this new chapter
A seed was planted at that retreat and with guidance I returned home becoming open to share a deeper part of myself. being of service
Playing the piano at a small church I attend is one way to connect more deeply
and just recently allowing our precious little dog Cami to be part of a small community theater production of the Wizard of Oz
a story about the importance of Home, Friendship, and the Transformative Power of Love.
The journey of life and all its twists and turns, bumps and bruises, new friends, old friends and sometimes even a few flying monkeys along the way.😉
Not a perfect life where we necessarily know where we are going or if any of our hopes/dreams will come true but to have a path we can follow and share with others along the way.
Every step of the way appreciating where we are and the joy of our journey.
Cheers to a wonderful weekend!
Oh, and speaking of the weekend I almost forgot to mention that this weekend I will be entering my apple pie in the County Fair. The winner gets a new oven! I entered last year and really had fun! Wish me luck! Here’s the link for that post Coos County Fair I’m going to try out a different recipe and will make sure to post it.😉
Now….what do you say we go for a walk on this beautiful coast…of mine😘
