As some of you know, I’m writing this from Thailand. The decision to come here was pretty quick… though if you look at it another way you could say it took 7 years. Yes I’ve been before, but this time, it’s not really about Thailand.

I know this is all a bit cryptic but I’m afraid that’s all I can give for now… You probably know by now that I’m a compulsive sharer though, so you’ll hear more soon enough 😉

For now, I wanted to share a poem with you that my beautiful mama, with her deep Celtic heart, sent me. We discovered recently that the ancestors from my feminine line were famous bards – poets and storytellers – in Donegal and Galway, which explains a lot, I think 🙂

Drink this in slowly, for it is true heart medicine…

For A New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,

Where your thoughts never think to wander,

This beginning has been quietly forming,

Waiting until you were ready to emerge.


For a long time it has watched your desire,

Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,

Noticing how you willed yourself on,

Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.


It watched you play with the seduction of safety

And the grey promises that sameness whispered,

Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,

Wondered would you always live like this.


Then the delight, when your courage kindled,

And out you stepped onto new ground,

Your eyes young again with energy and dream,

A path of plenitude opening before you.


Though your destination is not yet clear

You can trust the promise of this opening;

Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning,

That is at one with your life’s desire.


Awaken your spirit to adventure;

Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk,

Soon you will be home in a new rhythm

For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
