7th grade Waldorf mandalaIt is Mindful Monday everyone! I am traveling back home today so the blog will be abbreviated.  Life has shown me full range emotional moments this past weekend with wonderful celebration as well as painful news of a critically ill friend.  Moments continue to be fleeting and in need of mindful notation to be present.  Life is so precious and short, today be” aware, awake and alive” as Elliot Dacher writes in the book of the same title.  Make the intention this week to be fully present in at least one activity or emotion and stay in it.  Let it remind you of the grace that resides in resting there.  See you on Aloha Friday. In love and spirit.
