Glittering eyes

October faded in a blink. Pictures are all that I have left of that spirited month and even now when I see them, I still daydream about the in-between. I do kiss my life and I do watch with glittering eyes for all the magic this plane and the plane beyond can muster. I step knee deep into the clouds and glide across the pages of my life leaving trails with my fingers and pen. The magic that we create ourselves is often the magic we miss because we find it easier in others--other lives, others' gifts, others' haves, others' accomplishments. October, as fast as it moved through me, brought me face to face with some of my own fears, as well as some of my own gifts, and even, some of my own magic. How lucky we are to even just catch a glimpse of our own cosmic luminescence. Vast and expansive, every last sparkle is our own to give.

Much love to you friends...
