Life is too short to wake up with regrets.So love the people who treat you right. Love the ones who don’t just because you can. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Kiss slowly. Forgive quickly. No one ever said life would be easy. But it will be worth it.


Blessing for a New Home

By John O’Donohue

May this house shelter your life,

When you come in home here,

May all of the weight of the world

Fall from your shoulders.

May your heart be tranquil here,

Blessed by peace the world cannot give.

May this home be a lucky place,

Where the graces of your desires

Always find the pathway to your door.

May nothing destructive

Ever cross your threshold.

May this be a safe place

Full of understanding and acceptance,

Where you can be as you are,

Without the need of any mask

Or pretense or image.

May this home be a place of discovery,

Where the possibilities that sleep

In the clay of your soul can emerge

To deepen and refine your vision

For all that is yet to come to birth.

May it be a house of courage,

Where healing and growth are loved,

Where dignity and forgiveness prevail;

A home where patience of spirit is prized,

And the sight of the destination is never lost

Through the journey be difficult and slow.

May there be great delight around this hearth.

May it be a house of welcome

For the broken and diminished.

May you have the eyes to see

That no visitor arrives without a gift

And no guest leaves without a blessing.

I got this book about a week ago.

WOW. I’m fond of cracking open a book without starting at the beginning. I opened to this very page. I think it means something really special for what’s to come. I sure hope so.


Happy happy joy joy new home new roommates

My roommates live in Mt Washington LA and they are part of this performance troupe:

I have to walk up 70 steps nightly to be home and I’m actually really happy about that, too… YEP. HOME. I have a home. Starting April 15.

I’m going to be poor as a church mouse for about a month, deposit and all, but I’m going to be living in a place that is HOME.
