Steering Wheel of The Mind

I love to save photographs, notes, letters, cards and yes emails.  I have art work from JoAnn and Samuel when they were 5, 6, and 7 years old and today they are both 22. 

One of my future projects, the preservation and celebration of the 70+ letters I have from my Grandma Arosemena.  I also have letters from my MOM and DAD, all my brothers and sister and friends. I am going to figure out how to photograph or scan them and make a digital record for my niece and nephews so they can share with their children in years to come. My immediate idea, produce a short documentary movie and a coffee table book. I will keep you posted. 

In years ahead the hand written letter will be an item of curiosity, something for ethnographers and anthropologist to study, document and learn from. 

Today I am sharing part of an update I got from a friend who I worked with in California for many years.  So much of what she shared spoke to my heart.  She references letting go of the steering wheel of your mind; I love that line, I love the visual, the analogy, the poetry and power in that idea.  In her update she shared her personal experience when she transitioned from a big job, at a big company, with big responsibilities. 

For all us regardless of the circumstances when we go from years of a consistent activity, behavior, life routine to something radically different, there is adjustment, transition, discovery, surprises, lessons, frustrations, failures, and we all manage these times in our lives differently. 

I appreciate the counsel, I appreciate the lessons learned, I appreciate all who've provided your stories, your perspectives, your challenges and opportunities, what has worked and how.  What I value the most is your friendship and support in sharing LIFE. 

Steering Wheel of the Mind ..... 


Once I let go of the steering wheel in my mind and let the Universe unfold before me, I saw the path that was destined to be mine. Nearly everyday brings new insight and opportunities for me.   I can spend my time and talent helping others which I never had the time to do.  Being able to be the hands and feet of God is a privilege that I cherish and do not take lightly.   Being able to have my own business and be creative in ways I never thought I could has been an added bonus.

I admire you and your fabulous spirit.   The world will unfold before you and be a better place for having you in it.

With blessings and love for your journey ahead....

The winds of grace are always blowing, but it is you that must raise your sails.
Rabindranath Tagore
