Outside Looking In

Standing in the Garden
Looking at the frosted glass
Wishing you could enter
And be part of it


Search for the latch
Push the panes in
Join in belonging
And be whole again




 Courage is the price that life exacts
for granting peace with yourself.
--Amelia Earhart

Perfect, Shawn! I love it.

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--W.E. Henley

Shawn, I hear your longing.  As your "handle" so aptly states....just start.

Stop hesitating.  Its the season for miracles!

 I am a Life Purpose Coach who specializes in assisting
men and women to clarify their Life Purpose and then in turn
live true to their purpose. After 5 years working with the
Severely Mentally Ill in County Mental Health, I gave up the
bureaucracy (and safe, secure blanket) of this environment
to pursue my own purpose and passion.
