  An excerpt from Cheryl's Book: The New Akashic Records Strand Forty-Four Welcome to this dance we call life. A waltz, a tango, a polka, the two-step.

This Love Thing

    Three years ago, after divorce, I started dating for the first time in 25 years. Two years ago after an intense personal learning period brought on by the dating, I thought I had this meet-the-love-of-my-life thing worked out. I'd done my work, I thought. I'd released the trials and tribulations of past pain [...]

  East of Portland, where I live, beyond the conifer and deciduous forests which bestow their presence on both sides of the Columbia Gorge of Oregon and Washington are the buttes and cliffs and hills adorned simply in grass and wildflower and oak at creek side. No majestic fir or ever-present salal. A solitary beauty [...]

Life in All Its Messy Glory!

I keep thinking that at some point everything that's been furiously bubbling in my life will simmer down and thicken with deep, mind-blowing meaning.? And maybe it will at some point.?

Vulnerable Absorption

Let me be blunt: I have often been accused of being a perfectionist. ?Notice that this is an accusation, rather than a compliment, pointing towards the general?feeling that perfectionism is not an attribute that one should strive for.
