My spiritual beliefs are just too big to be captured by one dogma. I make no judgments on anyone else's path.

God is Love, and our reason for being here is to love each other and this universe where we have been privileged to find ourselves manifested.

Do our best. Act out of love.

Everyday, a challenge. Everyday, a prayer of thanksgiving for another opportunity to get it right.

Hee hee. LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!!

And so much that can be said about second (and third, and fourth . . .) chances.

It is always fun to speculate - what if we could do it over . . . how would we change our behaviors . . . what effect would that have on everything else . . .

People that know me know that I am a well traveled person. So far, I've visited about 85 countries on six continents.

"Spiritual" places like India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Thailand, Israel, Egypt, and Rome I have been to many times. I've marveled at the masterpieces of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel, walked the Via Dolorosa and saw the Stations of the Cross in Jerusalem, and said a prayer at the Western Wall in that same city. I've been to Bethlehem and Hebron. I meditated in Bodh Gaya in India where Siddhartha Gautama became the Supremely Enlightened One. I've seen the sun rise over the Golden Temple of the Sikhs in Amritsar in the Punjab. I celebrated Divali in the Lakshmi Temple in Delhi.

They are all wonderful to me and yet I too embrace my intuitive skepticism as well.

I love people from all over the world and have never visited a place I didn't like.

This is who I am.

When I was a little kid I set out to have an interesting life ... a life full of adventure. Unlike my older brothers I couldn't sit in front of the TV and watch professional sports events for hours on end. When I was in high school and college I saw too many classmates getting drunk or stoned or hanging out at the beach or the mall (I'm a Baby-Boomer). When I got my first car I was driving all over the place ... always exploring ... always looking to make new discoveries.

I have so wanted to visit Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Tibet and Thailand. What life affirming experiences you have had!!!

I have been fortunate to visit most of the areas of the world that were at the very top of my "must do" list. Maybe someday I will get to take that trip to Tibet. Hubby has not cared about visiting that part of the world, so we didn't go. But my son's fiancee took off to India several years ago with a group and she has yearned to go back ever since. :-)

You have a wonderful attitude. People respond to it, I am sure. When I travel, a smile and an attempt at respectfully speaking the language (even if I don't do the greatest job!) seems to create good will. I think folks just know when you are happy to be amongst them.

Namaste, Clark!

Someone on Facebook last week sent me this message: "Antartica called: they want their weather back!"
...and Antarctica can have their weather back! I, too, live in the Mid-Atlantic area, and these storms every few days are getting old! Harrumph!
