But if not, I'm going to be on Steve Hilton's show and doing a interview with Moms for America soon.

I've been at this for over 10 years now and my kids are excellin Read more of this blog post »

“When you’re outnumbered by trees your perspective shifts.”
Jessica Marie Baumgartner, Walk Your Path: A Magical Awakening

“You don’t have to wander around in silk robes burning sage with crystals tied to your head to find the power within.”
Jessica Marie Baumgartner, Walk Your Path: A Magical Awakening

“Atop a mountain, one feels as close to the heavens as a bird soaring through the sky.”
Jessica Marie Baumgartner, The Magic of Nature: Meditations & Spells to Find Your Inner Voice

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.”
Charles Addams

“All these bad experiences that we go through, they don't just disappear. We carry them our whole life trying to forget, escaping in habits, addictions, hate, toxic relationships. But what we don't know is that by doing so we let them stay alive. We water them like withered flowers and we hang onto them to justify our mistakes and failures.”
Asper Blurry, Train to the Edge of the Moon

“Illusion"

A man wants to be free
flying in the emptiness of the universe
He thinks he means something
in the endlessness of nature
A man wakes up
being only a dust”
Asper Blurry, Train to the Edge of the Moon

“Some nights the sky wept stars that quickly floated and disappeared into the darkness before our wishes could meet them. ”
Ishmael Beah, A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier
