I need the shelter of comfort these days, as I feel the loss of my father sinking deeper and deeper into me. Comfort is a shelter, a warm blanket, a refuge.

Welcome. Life is a sacred journey, but it doesn’t always feel that way. We can easily get lost in our daily demands and become disconnected from our spirit and source of inspiration.

That’s what I need. Tired and broken from disappointments and efforts, I began to seek comfort in my daily life. And so […]
Have you ever had enough of a day, but had to keep going? I hit that point at around lunchtime today. I wanted to stop talking, stop interacting with people, stop responding to demands. I wanted to shout: I’ve had enough. But that wasn’t a choice. So what could I do? I had to stretch […]
