Virtual Retreats!!!

What an exciting development to occur during this crazy pandemic time..  Richard and I are leading our Intimacy Retreats via an online platform (currently Zoom). It's been awesome. Couples can attend who wouldn't have been able to travel to whatever destination we usually teach in. I'm loving it! and so are they. www.IntimacyRetreats.com/virtual.

Snippets

I've been writing poetry lately. Little snippets. Here goes...

Days
So quickly moving,
marching.
Faltering at times.
Still, piling up and
Slipping by.
Your love
a thread throughout.

Dawn.
A gentle lightening, emerges
from the darkness.
A new day being birthed.
All is possible.
Everything starts over.
Once again.
Today.

Snippets.
Brief glimpses into my soul.
Short riffs. Interludes.
Each, only a moment.
All we ever have is one moment.
And then the next.
My life.

1/9/2020
Tide waters rushing
in to our little canal.
Twice daily, in and out again.
A metaphor for breath?
The Universal 2-beat?
A watery dance of Yin and Yang. Ever changing.
No resistance.

Some days
Like this one
move slowly, little wind
except outside among the trees.
Here, within me, is stillness. 
No need to rush or do.
Time to go to the gym!

1/12/2020
Seriously.
Must we?
Be serious. 
A metaphor, another word for 
"What is."
Not so serious, just what is.
Embracing this moment in its full
seriousness. 
Can be joyful!
And yet present to the current reality.
Calmly, with heart-centered awareness.
Seriously. 
With joy.

The water in the canal is still, 
appears to not be moving..
Yet it must be. 
And there is life within it too.
When I am still, I am also alive!

1/17/2020
Water slow moving this morning, allowing its natural flow..
Can I move slowly today?
Being mindful and aware of all who will surround me?
Turning easily toward one,
then another,
Appropriately embracing
with loving attention..

She waits, hopefully.
Imagining his return 
To their bed of love. 

1/27/2020
So many things to do..
Could be doing..
Remembering to pause!
Forgetting to do.

1/28/2020
Slow day. Pleasant.
Almost comfortable.
Contemplative.
No matter, not even any real substance.
Empty space, awaiting inspiration.
Then, this.
