Can extract sunshine from a cloudy day!

Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness. Carry a vision of heaven in your hearts, and you shall make your name,your college, the world, correspond to that vision. Your success and happiness lie within you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer wrappings. The great, enduring realities are love and service. Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty. ~ Helen Keller

"Universal Truth Be Told!" •*¨*•♪♫•*¨* ~~ ♥ ~ (

DARLING, no blabbering but truth be told simply. We creatures of comfort are "RESPONSIBLE" for the choices we have made, we are currently making, and will eventually, MAKE. •♥•´¯`•.¸¸.♥•

Design, shape, influence destiny, yes, BUT....there is no escaping the fact of our ACCOUNTABILITY, period!

LIFE, life, life…life, isn’t always FAIR (barf)! By far, some seemingly sensible choices turn out bad; some bad half- tweet choices turn out good. Bah, STRANGE, yes, but such is life. A riveting tango with CHANCE! Dance! Dance! Dance!

Ah, but hey, just between us. if one gamely owns up to the outcome, no matter how unfair and uncannily unexpected it may be, stare it in the eye, and with a brave face forward wittingly sit with it, caress it, accept it, in short, DEAL WITH IT, life just, well….surprises with a shebang’ of a gift called, INSIGHT.

Life unfurls, and one then begins to comprehend that circumstances, though appearing as disjointed spirals of maddening, unknowable incongruent CHAOS, is actually a web pattern of pulsating connected coincidences. By far, more than coincidences! Nothing is lost or naked of meaning and purpose. Even the slightest miniscule action, our softest yielding sigh, is pregnant with purpose.

Take this, a mere smile, even forced, activates a web of flurried action that ripples through the cosmos sending back palpable waves of a thousand eager swarming POSSIBILITIES. Forget the smile, a mere thought does the same!

We have but to snag  possibility to do with it what we can. CHOICES once again – accountability.

ALL, of which propels us to our DESTINY, of which we have nothing to fear, because whatever it is we "responsibly" decide, with a pure heart bereft of malicious intent, will be supported to our BLESSING. It can’t go wrong.

The blessed, the charmed, the lucky, the chosen, have lived this way for so long - Universal truth.

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both,
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could;
To where it bent in the undergrowth..."

It wheedled me to let go of the big things and the small things, the great, the minute, every fiber, every string, and every strand of certainty in between. It demanded I surrender, even the dream, the vision, the goal, the ways that I know, the path plain in sight, the familiar I cling to, of thoughts rooted in mind...

" Be willing to thread your own road, though solitary it may seem."

Life has been speaking to me, and it went on to say, "if you desire to live your truth, you will find the path you once thought to be lonely, filled with those who travel the way you do.

What has life asked of you lately? It is asking a big thing of let go of what seems to be just EVERYTHING, in order to make room for the new. And so I did...

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood - and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference"

~ excerpts from "The Road Not Taken," by Robert frost

This Little Light of Mine

¸.• ♥ •´¯`•.¸¸.♥Fiat Lux ♥´¯`•.¸¸.• ♥

The first vibrant beacon to illumine my path was no less than the incontestably funny Barbara Johnson, author of the vivaciously written, "Stick A Geranium in Your Hat and Be Happy.Her voice was my voice when I was a wee' lady 20 something freakish mother me! Her humor was a holy umbilical connecting her inner funny to mine.

Barbara's bubbly yellow book was  my loving elixir, gulped in potent doses in between the manic of youth with its mundane madness of frying chicken, fixing bed, folding laundry, catering to hubby, carting two active boys to elementary, and washing my hair every day.

"Pain is inevitable but misery is optional! 
~ Barbara Johnson

It was the 90's and she was my totem of sanity, my nicotine of resilience, my sangria of balance, a woman in a book who zealously guided and bridled my young wild self to calm and clarity. Ah, so many ways to describe her! She dug out' humor from the driest desert of days imaginable with stories lifted from a life she lived that seemed hell bent on whacking her out. Disappointments, bad vibes, grave news, crises, burnt bread became reserves of strength and catalysts of courage. I was transfixed. Her optimism was grounding. Pussy willows, cattails, soft winds and roses...I grew... a geranium of smile inside of me!

My mentor to a life of  "no whines, no complaints," Barbara imparted the dire boring folly of a "victim" mentality, espousing to the young wife in me that it isn't what happens in life that primarily matters, but the graciousness by which one takes it, rolls it and wears it! That was powerful. That was strength. 

Married 21 years, yes, I am.  And to this day, I owe that  happy geranium in my heart to a woman I met, not in person, but in spirit. Her life of seeking the gracious happy best in everything was a bud of joy planted, and  germinating still in my soul.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸

In the same manner of encouragement, I offer this blog to the life and stories of women the world over. Ordinary women who lay no claim to movie star fame, but whose lives are seeded with the most fragrant buds of wisdom that sow light as a prism refracts light...
....wherever we are, whether we know each other or not, have met or never will, we all are intertwined in a garden of pretty as life is meant to be. I offer this space as a little geranium garden of joy and a rose orchard of peace. 
May you be inspired. May you be blessed. May you be happy!   
This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine.. 
let it shine..let it shine...
Namaste! Love and Light!
The Lady Prism
