There is a sadness in the air.  Even the birds can sense that humanity is hurting, suffering.


I look and I see mourning, and if not mourning I see fear disguised as anger and prejudice.


The coming together eases it a bit, but I wish in time the souls who are here at any given moment could look in another’s being and recognize we are not very different at all…


We all have a place and a right to live our lives while traveling here together.


The ride would be so much nicer if we were surrounded by love and respect.


Stand and offer your hand to your fellow being.  Recognize that they have pain and struggle and they are just trying to get by.


Recognize that “your way” is right for you, just as “their way” is right for them.  Neither right…neither wrong…just different.


If we could honor that the differences we see make up a WHOLE…they fill the missing pieces, and one is not better without the other…rather we are strengthened when we allow and join…


Then we create THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY, rather than the HOLE IN HUMANITY!

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Dear Lorrie, I have a feeling that this was inspired by the unfortunate event that happened in Florida? Am I right? At any rate, yes. We meed to respect each and every individual. Regardless of from where we came from, or what we believe. Each of us is worthy of dignity.
    You pretty art piece is a great representative of this writing piece. It just hit me after reading to the end that the art does seem to signify a hold, or even being whole.
    I hope you are well, my friend and having a lovely week so far.
    🙂 ❤


    1. Thank you so much dear Staci! Yes…this post was inspired by the massacre in Orlando. Orlando had a tough week…first a girl who was a contestant on the TV show “The Voice” was shot and killed…then the mass shooting at the nightclub…and then a poor little boy was dragged into the lake and killed by an alligator at the Grand Floridian Resort at Disney World!!! Anyway…yes…I drew the art to hopefully resemble both…as you stated…so I am happy you could see that 🙂 Hope all is well with you dear friend! ♡♡

      1. Yes, it does look like Florida has been having a time of upheaval eh. I have seen coverage on the news here, although I did not hear about the little boy killed by the alligator. Wow.
        Yes, I could tell that the art was done to resemble both. I’m so happy that I was able to recognize that.
        Despite the recent happenings, I hope you are well Lorrie.
        Love and blessings, my friend.
        🙂 ❤


  2. Powerful and extremely relevant post Lorrie. I just may borrow that “Hole of Humanity” reference. For me, there is more to this than just a senseless crime that stems from a lack of tolerance, there is also the culture of guns in America which continues to manifest itself in the loss of lives of innocent people (often children). Not only is it time to accept and love our differences, it’s also time to disarm hatred. Love, Harlon


    1. YES, Harlon!! DISARM HATRED…I love it 🙂 And once again our Senate just shot down 4 bills about gun control. I know it is a hot topic and very polarizing here in the states, but I personally don’t see a reason that an individual would EVER need an automatic assault weapon!! I personally do not like guns but can appreciate that some people feel the need to own one for protection. In South Florida I am probably one of the few who do not pack heat! I have a friend who was being carjacked and she pulled out her pistol and they backed off. I also borrowed a friend’s car and opened the center console and surprise…there was a giant handgun!! I was so relieved when I gave it back…had I been pulled over I’m sure I could have been arrested! I ramble on…jumping down off my horse…and wishing you a blessed day 😉 Hope you are better than well ♡


  3. There is so much wisdom in your words Lorrie. The image is perfect reflection of the whole.
    A surprising thing is happening for me. I see more goodness and kindness in the world than at any other time. Or course, I don’t listen to the news any more and surround myself with concerned and caring people. Or perhaps it is only a reflection of my inner reality.
    Keep sharing your light 💕


  4. Beautifully said dearest Lorrie.. we are all upon our path, our Earth Journey together and the sooner we understand what we do to others we do to ourselves the better we all move forward upon our pathway of discovery..
    Sending you huge amounts of Love my friend

    1. Beautifully said, Sue!! A lot of people just don’t seem to get this. I think things turned around for me when I realized this truth…and the opposite also…how we treat OURSELVES is how we treat others…and the Divine!! Much love ❤
