On the same theme as last week’s post (Bigger Picture Unleashed), let’s meet Walter, a fellow water-lover.

Walter is my hero. He is the epitome of uncomplicated joy in action. I watch this video when I need a motivational nudge and a laugh.

Love letter from a long lost friend

Dear Friend,

It’s been such a long time since we were last together. I remember the first time we connected. There was a definite spark. Your eyes twinkled, your heartbeat quickened, and your smile made my day. It was genuine, but all too brief. I miss you.

We lost touch over the years. You didn’t know where to find me, yet I was always here. You kept passing by me each day. I tried to catch your attention, sometimes through a memory, a song, a conversation you overheard, or a flashback.  Continue reading Love letter from a long lost friend

Filling the gap

Recently, I was asked why some Seismic eShift postings seem to leave readers dangling.

“Dangling”, as in there should be some sort of closure. An answer. A definitive direction to take. Otherwise, the loop is left open with a gap of uncertainty because the outcome could be anything.

Uncertainty can be disconcerting. Discomfort is, by definition, uncomfortable. You can bet I get curious about that uncertainty and discomfort. What was it that made you see or feel something you didn’t want to see or feel?

I specialize in ‘seismic nudges’. The gap is all yours to bridge as you live your life from moment to moment. Your choices. Your amazing story. Now if THAT makes you uncomfortable – the idea that you’re the true author of your own story – then I’m more than willing to risk your discomfort.

What are you willing to risk in service of your Seismic Life?
