Grace comes to me in the morning
while i'm laying in bed (sleepy head)
(half awake, half asleep)
while i'm still drifting
inbetween...
the unseen...
and the seen worlds.

She is the autumn breeze
that filters through my window
and unfurls...

touching me, caressing me,
carrying me gently
from the unseen
back to my wide awake dream
in the seen world.

To me, Grace is a woman that George Burns said: "Say good night, Gracie" to, and I always said: "Good night, George and Grace." right back at them.

Grace is also forgiveness, generosity of spirit, politeness, tolerance, the ability to be humble and many times, a damn good way to move your body! It's any combination of the above that can be grace. The willingness to learn form anyone or any experience is grace. Total respect for animals and yourself is grace.

“Grace” and “classy” are often synonymous. That is why I am here, all of you seem to me to be intellectually, psychologically and creativly: 'to the power of ten,' grace. So, “sing” becuse you are grace and be yourself because you are grace! What often seems to be my own grace, though, is: “Sock it to me?” LOL

I love you guys!

Hi,
Did anyone happen to see Jane Fonda on Oprah the other day! Talk about ageing with grace! She looks beautiful and seems to have gotten her heart and soul in a good place. I ordered her book "My Life So Far". I always look to older woman as an inspiration to me, since I just turned 50. I try to learn from them so thay when I get to that age, maybe I can be as fit physically, mentally and emotionally. This is also why I admire Shirley so much! Certainly not all women in their 70's are like this. Celebrities or not, we can all keep ourselves fit --in all ways--with a little effort.
Love,
Joanne

Sweet Grace,
time cannot erase you
or replace you
for you are beyond it -
on its outskirts reaching in.

i cannot see you;
yet my heart feels you
all around me reaching in.

You touch my heart
and it opens...
like a flower
to the sunshine
and the rain.

You touch my heart
and i awaken
to the rhythm
of its beating
once again.

Grace rushes in and out
on the waves of the see invisibly...
and deep in her depths one encounters
the sweetest mysteries.
Grace be a lady; i'm sure.

Love,
Chi

i don't know why our hearts have to break sometimes
in order to open; i only know that when they break wide open;
all around us Grace abounds in the faces and hearts of those
who grieve with us... and in the spaces between our feelings
and our thoughts; Grace is there. It's kind of like we're blessed
(during these times of grieving) with a collective heightened
awareness of our real and true spiritual natures as love
abounds with grace. Though i wouldn't wish these times
upon anyone (paradoxical,eh?). i'm sorry for your loss, Lidia.

Sending you lots of love,
Chi
