I am a blissed and blessed human being, observing the good and the bad that exists within the cosmic dance called LIFE. I spend most of day discovering that infinite place within myself that KNOWS. It's an inner knowing, it's a feeling, an experience of something very powerful and permanent. It waits patiently for those thirsty souls, who are willing to go the distance from the head to the heart to discover a hidden treasure. <br /> <br /> I'm so rich that I don't ever have to think about money. Mostly, it's because I use a different kind of bank. There is no bank that is secure enough to hold this wealth that I have obtained. This bank is called the Bank of Love. I used to work as a music therapist in nursing homes, singing and playing my guitar throughout the 1980's and 90's. The Alzheimer's ward was the most tender and heartwarming for me. I would tell them that I wasn't getting paid too much for the gig, but since I use a different bank, I would need them to deposit their smiles, their voices, their toes tapping and hands clapping into my account. They would cry when I played and sang a song which was popular when they were "keeping company" with their wives or husbands. They couldn't remember their names, but they remembered their feelings.<br /> <br /> I have been so touched by the opportunity of living life as fully as I can. It's such a gift.
