Today has already been amazing...

Good morning Marty... thought I'd just get this started. After we talked last night I couldn't stop thinking about what it would be like to share the kind of insights that you and I are constantly uncovering during the course of our conversations.

So first of all, I started my day off the way I love to... talking with Robert... and I told him about our idea for this blog -- how we could reach out to women our age and start having a dialogue about authentic love, manifesting, having undefended relationships, etc. He thought it was a great idea.

When I got to my first stop of the day, the person I was supposed to meet was 10 minutes behind schedule. Immediately I sensed that there was good reason for this and it had something to do with our idea. Sitting right beside me was the book "1000 Awesome Things" so I picked it up and right inside the jacket cover it talks about "the 10-million-plus-award-winning blog". That's when I knew that we were onto something. Then the receptionist and I got into a lovely conversation where I told her what you and I were up to. She wanted to know more. I not only told her about our blog idea but also about our dream to have a women's retreat (in a villa in Tuscany perhaps?) and how we were in the process of manifesting that. She said she wants to follow our blog and that she is a licensed acupuncturist and would love to be involved in whatever way she can. She could certainly show us a thing or three about stretching our meridians!

Then I arrived at work (another one of my favourite things to do as you know) and the mail was sitting on the counter. It looked like a lot of junk mail but then a tiny post card slipped out addressed to me personally from a woman that I had met last week at a business function. The post card read "Are you connected?" It was from a new acquaintance, Cathy, who has started a couple of women's networks, one of which is Again, I felt that we are absolutely moving in the right direction.

Next, a woman that I haven't seen for three years, walked into the store, and she asked me how my family was. She had not heard about Duncan's passing and was so overcome with emotion when I told her that I realized something bigger was going on for her... that it had resonated in some way with loss in her life. I asked her about it and she said she was not handling her son's leaving the nest very well. He sounds like a very similar type of kid as Duncan was... extreme sports, huge love of adventure, wanting to test himself, (it truly felt as though she was describing Duncan)... I told her that one of the most beautiful things that I have experienced since Dunc died, is that the love between us will always be there. I said lots of other things too that I don't need to get into here but suffice it to say that there was a healing there for her. She is a songwriter by the way, and the words to her latest song are all about being true, finding love, all the things that we want to talk about here. She's coming back in half an hour for more conversation. I'm going to ask her if I can put her lyrics on our blog. Again, I'm struck by the synchronicity of today and it's only lunch time.

Sarah just came back and she said I can put her lyrics here... Can I get by without a lie, to bide the time til truth's required to become the real me? Can I get by without a lie, can I survive the Truth, the truth that only Truth can set us free to live. Can I get by without a lie, to tell me what is not, to see you see me and all that is, rather than what will be, we'll be. Just you. Just me. Truly alive. Yep. Pretty cool. I had a listen to her piano CD. I'll bring it with me the next time I see you (or you can hear some of her stuff at

So already I'm sensing that this can be much more than what we first thought. This can be a place where deep healing can happen just by being open to whatever conversation presents itself... be it in person or on our blog. What do you think? I am so excited!
