I have a hard time with forwarded e-mails. There are just so many of them, and while they all offer a joke, word of wisdom or link to something interesting, there’s not enough time in the day to deal with them all. The ones that ask me to forward to 12 or 17 or 4 other friends/colleagues/phenomenal women/people in my address book don’t really work for me, even though they’re harmless. And the ones that promise me a stroke of luck or warn me of something dire if I fail to do so…those are the chain letters of the new millennium.
But here’s one I read. Why? It came as plain text. It was brief. The header wasn’t cluttered with the e-mail addresses of 794 strangers. It was just a simple note, with no blinking graphics, no rows of >>>>, no questionable claims for me to verify on http://www.snopes.com. I was told to copy and paste it to friends, but see above. I don’t forward things. I do, however, post stuff on my blog. If it’s lovely stuff. If it’s thoughtful. If it’s worth reading:
May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.
Question: What do you do with forwarded e-mails–read, pass on, discard, decide on a case-by-case basis?
It’s out! Just Breathe is out in paperback and I’m so excited. All month long, I’ll be giving away cool stuff to people who comment on this blog–copies of the book of course. And things to pamper yourself with. And books by my friends, and ARCs (advance reading copies) of books I’ve been sent for endorsement. So check in early and often, readers!
Here’s my sophomore attempt at a musical slideshow. The images are from a magical trip we took to the Point Reyes National Seashore for our 25th wedding anniversary. Enjoy!
Today’s drawing question–Where in the world do you go to just breathe? I’ll pick the winner using http://www.random.org.

Come on, people. I really don’t need to spell it out for you, do I?
Your turn! What book cover has grabbed your eye in the bookstore?
Do yourself a favor and start your day with this poem by Hafiz:
Even after all this time
the sun never says to the earth,
You owe me.
Look what happens with
a love like that.
It lights the whole sky.
