Favorite Quote:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's within us - it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Nelson Mandela


Mummy Mom,
Darling Dearest,
You seem so very still;

You mouth agape,
You eyelids shut,
The patterned cacoon embracing you.

Mummy Mom,
Darling Dearest,
You seem so very cold;

Your body snug beneath the shroud,
Your lips stern, straight
The TV blaring its noises loud.

Mummy Mom,
Darling Dearest,
Why won't you wake up?

My whisper floating in your ear,
My tapping finger on your hand,
The kiss with falling tear combined,
To wish you well, Goodnight.
