Releasing clutter opens the way for realizing life’s dreams

This evening, together with 15 other B’Nai Mitvah students, I will be completing a two-year course of study by helping to lead the services and will be called to read from the Torah portion for this week.  I wish everyone much joy, as I feel, in being able to reach this point in my life and choosing to complete that which I began and interrupted when I was 12.  At the age of 12, I didn’t have the life experience to appreciate what it means to connect to our spiritual roots and the joy that is visceral in singing the ancient hebrew text.  I am not religious as a person, but I am spiritual and I am so happy to now have the calm to focus and enjoy this experience.

Beginning the process of releasing clutter has helped me toScreen Shot 2015-05-12 at 7.36.33 AM see clearly what is most important in my life.  I wish each of you the same discoveries.

warmly,

Louise

Sometimes the Gold is Hard to Spot

One of the things I love about being a photographer is how looking through the lens changes my perspective. Try doing this with a Knarly situation. Ask yourself, how do I feel, then what is true for me AND what is true from the perspective of the other person. Then ask yourself, what can I do? Listen deeply. Our wisdom lies within each of us. The answers will arise. Just as I look through the camera lens, slowing down to let the subject show me its gold, it’s true nature.
