..If Life is a Game...

A book, a video, sent my way... "If Life is a Game, These are the Rules..." as each of 10 rules were presented, I questioned how did they apply to me, to my students, to those I coach, to those who have chosen to unveil perceived obstacles to their own visions of BEING... and upon reflection a poetic response offered...

...and so it is...

this body with each breath divine
lives and learns the lessons of time
a chorus of wisdom be it heard
in the light of Divinity's Word
the gift of NOW you to receive
reflections are yours to conceive
you are the player with a winning goal
within is the coach, 'tis the heart and soul
and when the clock is set anew
the Being ~ the Doing ~ the Having is All up to You.

Yes, there is known JOY, known POWER, known GRATITUDE, in a life lived with purpose and fulfillment... From a box of crayons and a coloring book to a one person art exhibit, from words in rhyme to a published book of poetry, from a vision of opportunity for the dyslexic learner to the development of programs that have brought mastery of reading and math to hundreds of learners since 1983, from a vision of harmony to the development of a system of vibrational/sound therapy that has served hundreds in their quest for well being. Yes, honor has been bestowed, award given, recognition acknowledged... YET THE GAME GOES ON AND ON AND ON... and I live delight in BEING A PLAYER...

All inquiries welcomed.
