Second Chakra

A beautiful orange rock I saw today while on my walk
orange the color for the second chakra
I especialy love orange when used with soft mossy green or celadon

While reading True Balance I kept thinking I am not very balanced not that that is any big surprise one of my reasons for reading the book is that I want more balance and serenity in my life. After reading Potato Prints list I decided to see if I could make one of my own.

Things that ballance me
Walks on the beach or at the park
Chakra meditation group
Sitting in the garden
Taking a nap
Writing poetry or in my Journal
Peter’s workshops
Drinking water
Fresh air
After writing my list today I went for a lovely walk in the park and had a short but lovely stop at the beach.

Space Between

wind kisses my cheek
whispers secrets in my ear
bright pebbles on sand
river bubbles with laughter
sunlight dances with green leaves

Dorothy Morgan

2,9996 is a tribute remembering the lives of the victums of 9/11. My posts this weekend will be in memory of Dorothy Morgan.

On the Trade Center victims list she is listed as Dorothy Morgan, 47 years, Hempstead NY. That doesn’t say much but there are fragments of information that survive her. That is part of the tragedy of her sudden death - that we are left with only fragments. Described by her daughter as “a diva” and “a beautiful person,” the two words I most often found used to describe her were "warm" and "smiling."

Some of the fragments paint a picture for us of this beautiful woman and tell us that her family were important to her. She made time every week to spend with her mother Dorothy Burke, her daughter Nykiah and her grandson. She was an active member of the Faith Baptist Church in Hempstead and the Allen African-American Methodist Episcopal Church in Jamaica, Queens. We also know her birthday is March 12, she collected Barbie Dolls and frequently ate Chinese take out ( something many of us probably have in common with her). She worked at Marsh McLennan as a broker.

Dorothy left behind her daughter Nykiah Morgan and Nykiah's son, her mother, Dorothy Burke, sisters Ethell Bennett, Patricia Williams, Earlene Stephenson and Stephanie Rose, brothers Desi Burke, Cecil Burke as well as nices and other friends and family.
