True love needs no accolades, no Snapchat, no Facebook likes, no re-tweets, no Instagram, no Selfies to substantiate your self-image and self-worth.  Life is way too short to worry, doubt, fear, be bitter, angry, resentful, hurt, pissed-off at a world which seems to push us off a cliff at times. 

Be happy, full of joy, full of love and intended purpose for living; as though you were lit on fire and can’t contain yourself. 

A lone white, pink, red, lavender, rainbow (choose a colour) rose stands out amongst the weeds, is cherished in our Garden of Paradise.  So it is with beauty as it was in Eden-reaching up with our arms stretched wide towards the great blue open. 

Just be you and the world will come to adore you and desire to have what you got; that bling bling deep within a body that bounces with every beat of the heart.  

Be your own Field of Dreams and the ‘One’ will come to you, but first you must find the ‘Soulmate’ deep within that secret place. 

So Arise and Awake Rose from your slumber.  Spread your wings and fly.


As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
