Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Walking in light

I’ve read so many blogs recently; so many wonderful writings. Why bother to write one of my own? Why bother sharing my thoughts, experiences, and silliness? Why not? I love to write and when I’m ready the words just tumble out.

At sunrise I sat at my desk looking for my “Yanni” cd. It’s purely instrumental music that inspires me; “Music that soothes the savage beast.” Yes, there must be a beast within because I feel so calmed by this music. Lost in the music I allow my mind to travel, yet let go of thoughts. Where have I been?

Visiting other blogs allows me to glean from their life. I see a blog as a child carrying his or her light along a path. A path that may or may not intersect with mine and the light I carry. Adults honoring our inner child in ways we may not realize. It is always the child who carries the light. It is the adult that develops the strength to share their light. And in sharing, we light the entire path.

Thank you~

  3. Dear Dixie,
    Such nice sentiments in this post, and I hope you continue to share your thoughts and feelings with us.
    After all, they are valuable to us who read your blog.
    Thanks for sharing!
    With Very Best Wishes,

  4. Thank you David for reading my blog... even in my 'lean' times.
    I greatly value your work.
    In peace, Dixie

  5. Hi Dixie,
    I do hope you continue to post up some more blogs.
    May your inner child dance and sing with innocent delight.
    Thank you and please take very good care of you.
    With respect, Gary

  6. Hi!
    Thank you so much for stopping by my post about waiting.
    I'm so sorry to hear about your father. It's so difficult to lose a parent, no matter our age. My father is 86 and trying so hard to stay independent ~ my mother passed on at a very young age {53} I was just married when she died. What a loss. I'm hoping that time and your sweetest memories are comforting you and that your father's spirit always seems close.
    It was wonderful seeing a poem from Mattie. I missed her lovely thoughts. So glad to have seen you again too!
    Wishing you peace and joy * Maria

  7. Hi Dixie,

    One of the best things about having a blog is the lack of deadlines and expectations that come from so many other things in our lives. Letting go of our preconceived ideas that we "should" be doing something often opens up our creative muse and we find what it is we want to be doing.

    I also find it helpful that there are so many wonderful people, like you, who are there to inspire and encourage others in the quest for inner peace.


  8. Hi Gary,

    Sorry to hear you've been ill; wishing you well.
    Thank you so much for reading, commenting and for being a light on the path.

    In peace, Dixie

  9. Dear Maria,

    I appreciate your visit and kindness.
    Your writings are peaceful and often I read them 2-3 times each.
    Peace and joy to you, Maria.

  10. Dear Roger,

    If you ever open a school that teaches "life lessons," please send me an application! Meanwhile I'll keep writing.

    I'm so glad you could visit. See you on the path.

    Peacefully, Dixie

  11. Hi Dixie; It's so good to see you writing again. I have always enjoyed what you had to say. Looking forward to much more. Take care, my dear!

  12. Hi Heather!
    I don't know if you do t-shirts for your charity organization... but one with "I am mighty" (your latest post) would be great. My two cents: add a rainbow.
    I'll do the best I can to write something worth stopping by to read!
    Thank you for your very generous comments.
