Mom, her baby & constant companion, and to her left, going clockwise, are great granddaughters, Kenzie, Tyli and Livi.

Come, join our circle!

Whisper the following as you would a prayer or a chant …

It’s the Circle of Life

And it moves us all

Through despair and hope

Through faith and love

Till we find our place

On the path unwinding

In the Circle

The Circle of Life

– The Lion King

Mom, her baby & constant companion (I told you her baby was her constant companion) and Livi.

This time, take a few deep breaths and look deeply and reverently into the image of Livi and mom … look into their hearts.

Do you feel what I feel?

I feel the gentleness of their touch. I feel the warmth. I feel the desire to care. I feel the need to be cared for. I feel pure unadulterated  love all around.

Do you see what I see?

I see kindness that is instinctual and comes from a special place within our souls.

Do you hear what I hear?

There is no talking. I hear the breathing. The breath of life. The steady sounds slowly cast their spell … they are hypnotic and comforting.

Do you smell what I smell?

It is the purest scent of all. It is not an incense. It is innocence … the scent of a child that is and was.

Do you taste what I taste?

I savor the taste of savory. Just imagining what it taste like makes my mouth water.

The Japanese word for savory is umami … it literally means “delicious essence”.

That’s what I taste … I taste the delicious essence of life when it is lived to the fullest.

Please join us, share with friends, and for heaven’s sake, savor every second of the delicious essence of life.

We are all in this amazing Circle of Life, together.

Feel it. See it. Hear it. Smell it. Taste it.

Be brave, be kind, be caring, be grateful … enjoy.
