💖 Living-Room Video #57: “No More Wasted Love” 💖 This is a new song about refusing to compromise in relationships — about not only wanting the best but also wanting to be the best, in terms of integrity, authenticity, mutual encouragement and perceptive self-awareness. It’s all in the song. Here are the lyrics:Read the rest of this entry »
Recently, I wrote a sonnet entitled “Birthing Simplicity”. I knew then that I would have to expand on that with an article, even at the risk of undoing my purpose in it!
