Life and love, with their many twists and turns, ups and downs, are like a high mountain road—not for the fainthearted.

When we know in our hearts there is a course we must follow, there is no doubt or hesitation. There is only the firm conviction this is absolutely the right course, no matter how difficult it is. And it’s always for the highest good of all involved.

In the last three months three of my close relationships have foundered and/or sunk. So I’m averaging one per month. 🙂

Given the state of the relationships, I decided the wise course was to leave them. I feel no animosity or bitterness, only the clear recognition that it’s time.

In similar situations in the past I was devastated or, at best, disappointed. These situations are not always easy, and almost always a bit sad. That’s true here.

But I look forward to the days and years ahead. My work will continue, for it’s what I love to do. It’s not really work—in fact, I’ve started calling it my “playwork,” for my work and my play have become one.

My heartfelt gratitude goes out to all of you who have generously supported and loved us during these years. I know your love and support will continue as we all move forward on our paths with joy.

Life goes on.

And, as my spirit guides often remind us, life is supposed to be fun—and we never lose those we love.

God bless you all!
