So much emphasis over the years was placed on the ability to speak in front of a large crowd. In my youth I would break the silence with humor. If I could get people to laugh I would feel a little less uncomfortable. I think to this day I unconsciously still try to put people at ease with humor.
Thomas was one of those teachers you never forget, I had him for English and Public speaking. He use to always say "bring the words to life with expression" and then I would find him smiling as I over exaggerated a statement. It was all in good fun, but as I have gotten older, I have come to learn the importance is not always in what we say, but our ability to listen to those around us.
There are many ways we falter in our willingness to listen. Sometimes it is merely poor interpretation and occasionally it can be a shield that we place to block or protect our spirit or heart. I remember at times over analyzing and again twisting the words in a way that soothed without any pain. Mastering speech and interpretation are equally as important. I don't think people realize the power of both actions nor the unconscious manipulation of communication.
Silence on the other hand can speak as loud or louder and can and is easily misinterpreted as well as any well written speech. Sometimes I find myself having to literally step back and review a moment in time. Was it a matter of my wants or my desire that so foolishly set me up on a misguided tour of life? I questioned that but I already knew the answer, " time is the great healer" People heal at different rates of time, sometimes it can be quick and painless and other times we drag it out to soothe the heart and allow a period of acceptance. Do we hear? Do we listen? I do believe that inside we are absorbing the action and words of others and that we file them accordingly and call on them in periods of time where they are easily applied to life.
Communication, what actually creates the barriers? It is possible that there are many factors, the so called battle of the sexes, education, knowledge or lack of it, experience...ah yes I would say experience is key to our communication skills. I have taken the same situation and reviewed it over the years and as I mature, I see the weakness of my skills to listen as well as my lack of experience dealing with a particular moment in time.
Everyone wants a clear cut decision, I myself have wanted to see life in black and white, the yes and no of it all. We play with words and our listening action all the time. TV, radio, songs, books, children, family, friends, stopping at a restaurant for breakfast, dealing with our colleagues and the list goes on. I find that everyone I come in contact with has some lesson that unfolds before me, maybe not necessarily at that moment but somewhere along the journey they snap like a piece of a puzzle into place.
The importance of listening came about today based on something I neglected a long time ago. I was buffering my heart and didn't want to accept the truth. The truth had always been there and I refused to listen. There are no right and wrong times or actions, everything that happens, happens for a reason. Sometimes it is a matter of denial and not necessarily a matter of complications but a sense of sorting through it all and understanding what life is all about.
I think of all weaknesses, interpretation is that which needs strengthened and is done so by responding and questioning and actually removing the fears of reality. When silence reigns we fall victim to our own wandering mind. Why was it so difficult to ask? There are many reasons we fear the response, one we already know the answer, two, we don't want to know the answer,or three there really is no answer. With truth we unlock the gateway to communication and we find that there is little room for misinterpretation and that we respect and enjoy life in a heightened sense of awareness.
I am Okay!!!

Dreaming here with you, there is nothing I would rather do. Hand in hand skipping through, the day ends where we begin. Dreaming here with you, there is nothing I would rather do.
Love is immeasurable with a continuous flow of infinite power.
Invisible anchors to the ground...
To appreciate the magic you must be willing to view with your heart,to feel the warmth of embrace you must allow your soul to journey forward.
Screams in silence....
I love the old song " I'm singing in the rain, just singing in the rain, what beautiful feeling, I'm..." The room is dark, the sun buried in the clouds and though I could be or should be working, I find I'm just laying back daydreaming. Watching the rain I kind of fell back in time, to when I was child and we had those long rainy days without the thunder and lightening. Thinking about it I can actually remember splashing and jumping in the puddles and spinning around and dancing in the rain. Recently I was asked" what it is you would like to do in the rain" We sometimes look down on rain as being destructive to our outdoor plans, but the rain is a necessary part of life. It is crucial for all that exist and thrives needs nurtured. The rain does just that, like a flower in garden that sprngs up tall after a good rain. If everything is felt with passion, seen with passion and devoured by passion, then the rain is to be felt seen and devoured by the heart and soul.
What would I do in the rain?
With the raindrops falling, I'd sing and dance with you, I'd pull you so close and give a kiss or two. Ten years old and splashing, twenty one and laughng, heart to heart confessing how much I love you.
Sometimes we try to put the past behind us and move forward to only realize that we bring it all along on the journey. It is the magic that ignites the fire or the will to be. I celebrate my yesterdays, todays and tomorrows in that each moment, each experience becomes central to my love for life. I cannot change the facts nor rewrite the script, the path was laid by the heavens to be traveled by the heart to free the soul.
The angels got together to create a plan, where heaven meets with earth to celebrate across the land. They gave the sky the most beautiful shade of blue and a occassional rainbow and sun rays direct to you.
The angels got together to create a plan, where heaven meets with earth to celebrate across the land. They challenged the mountains with the river running through to wash up in the waves a reminder of my love for you.
The angels got together to create a plan, where heaven meets with earth to celebrate across the land. The seasons of life all welcome the change, as stragically the heavens are rearranged.
The angels got together to create a plan, where heavens meets with earth to celebrate across the land. Rays of sulight warm, shine down upon your face, to bring to you my love as beautifully as intricately stitched lace.
I wanna hold your hand...

It's really rather easy and you are free to follow me.Close your eyes and enter my morning daydream. We are dancing on a mountain, we are down by the sea, but in all reality, you are hand in hand with me.
It's really rather easy and you are free to follow me. Skipping like a child, awkward at times we are sixteen, the truth is in the journey and ageless are we, on a path that leads to infinity.
It's really rather easy and you are free to follow me. Open your heart and allow your soul to see. Every step closer reveals throughout time, the magic of the moment which entwined your life to mine.

Love is a blend of meeting up with our needs and our wants as we engage in filling in the pieces of our life. Imagine the ocean without the shore, the sun without the sky, the night sky without stars, there would be no balance, you would know something is missing. The safety of the shore makes the danger of the ocean tempting, the sky frames the sun in just the right distance to bring light and warmth. The stars enhance the evening sky as we enguage in the exploration of the inner spirit in the faith of the heavens.
What is contentment? Contentment is the security of actions, the safe and emotional well being of resting in the arms of another, it's knowing that someone else cares at least in the same degree as we would for our self to bring peace to the soul.
Imagination works with the various colors of life to create romance, laughter, sensuality. Without the the completeness of the being there is a hole that deepens as it begs to be filled. Embrace the beauty of life as it creates a stable platform in which we launch our love. The internal joy radiates from our very being as we share it, we allow it to create a eternal light, which out performs any act of sorrow.
The energy which exerts itself in a relationship does not surface from the partner, the energy which flows outward is that which was locked away inside of ourselves. The beauty is in the partner who is capable of releasing such energy and enhancing the relationship with the magic of love.
Dancing through life reveals much about love as we feed our inner spirit. Hungry, hungry gives you trust, as with each moment our hearts do touch. Hungry, hungry leans on faith, as we travel on this journey our spirits awake. Hungry, hungry to the soul exites as we take to the blue of the sky. Hungry, hungry feeds you love...
My soul spoke not of promises,
but the interlocking of love,
which stitched our lives together.
I do not write for approval,
only to declare that I have indeed
felt the infusion of love into my soul .
