Ghost Hunters

“If the Ghost Hunters snuck up behind me as I was trying to write, they might see a universe of slave liberators, political agitators, Baptist preachers, exuberant orators, beloved writers and incomparable musicians – so many musicians – arrayed around me all in chorus, urging and cajoling and daring me to somehow dig a little deeper. ~ Touré

Who is daring you to dig deeper?

When day comes

When day comes, we step out of the shade,

Aflame and unafraid.

The new dawn blooms as we free it,

For there is always light,

If only we’re brave enough to see it,

If only we’re brave enough to be it. ~ Amanda Gorman


We navigate this hazardous terrain

trying to advise You that there is indeed a struggle

there is a gap

Surviving a waking nightmare

beseeching You to break the shackles

You refuse to acknowledge even exist…

~ Martina McGowan

Lighting up

“When we look at the dreams that light up our heart,we grow the picture they paint as a go-to place.Then we say, ‘But it isn’t possible.’ We say, ‘That’s not my life.’ We say, ‘That’s just what I’d LIKE to happen, not what’s possible.’The dream should not die, just because I lack the power to make it possible. I need to identify other people who carry the same overwhelming vision, or whose heart-desires overlap with my own.” ~ Andy Raine, Northumbria

What can you do together?

Reservoir, canal, swamp I

Are you a reservoir, canal or swamp? Howard Thurman asks. A reservoir holds water. It stores it to be on hand when needed. It is a resource of abundance to be shared. It comes with openings for in-flowing and out-flowing.

What abundance do you store and share?
