The Spiral of Life

The path to service, as in life, is often a spiral. We keep coming around to a similar lesson, learning a bit more each time we pass it, until we reach the place where true change begins: within.

If it is your destiny, if you truly hear the calling, nothing will stop you.

So many of us have already discovered what truly matters in life. Many of us are finding out now. Some of us will not learn in this lifetime.

The love lives on, as does the music.

NY Should Go Forward With Primary

I received news last night that NY has decided to cancel it primary, after previously postponing it to June 23rd. 
In my opinion, this sets a very bad precedent. While it is understandable why this decision has been/will be made, this strikes a death blow to the very root of our republic and with regard to free speech and the write in vote, our First Amendment rights.

While it is true that I am still a registered candidate in the primary, my motivation for voicing my opinion on this matter is much the same as it was regarding that ridiculous sidewalk project: principle. 

If our country has come to the point that we are willing to give up our rights to vote, we can no longer say we are by the people and for the people.  

If you, as an elected official, can allow this decision to stand, you should step down. 

Please, America, raise your collective voice. 

Respectfully, 
Mari

Something's Got to Give

I am feeling so raw right now, as I guess many of us are. All I ask is that you allow yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling.

To feel is to live.

To feel fear is necessary to survival, but to overcome your fears is necessary to grow into who we are to become.
This is true of a person, a country, a people, a world.
