Celebrating Brian’s Graduation – A Concept

This morning, in my meditation, I had this new feeling about my friend’s passing.

There is a concept: that we humans come here to do some good in the lives of other people or to support the evolution of their consciousness in this lifetime. Whatever that good is, that that is what our time here is about.


Imagine a staff meeting. The Board of Directors (God) says, “okay, it’s time for Essence JT to go to the next level. This time he is to learn compassion at a higher level. Who is willing to step up to support JT more »

The Universe is Loving Me & Life without Brian

Oops – lost my groove – of writing on my blog.

What happened is that one of my very dearest and closest friends of 26 years, the most awesome soundman ever, Brian Connolly, died suddenly in his sleep, at the age of 51 years old. That was the morning of March 10 – and there ya’ have it. That is “where I’ve been”.

Grief is such a strange walk – it’s very own thing, or place, for sure. It’s been amazing to practice presencing myself in the Now when there is such shock there…and the deep sadness that is waiting there in waves. I think I must thank God for the waves…for I imagine I could not take it if I were to more »

Save Every Little Drop

Today I started writing songs for this children’s project I am joining in on with my brother, Randy, and his business partner (and my dear friend) Murray. This first CD will be all environmental songs for kids…and I started today by writing a song about conserving water.

The thing is that while I was writing, I forgot how literal kids can be. One of the lines was “save every little drop of rain”, but then it was pointed out to me that this could very well really freak children out. A picture was painted of them watching the water go down the drain and crying, thinking they were really doing it wrong, letting anything more »

This year's Easter is VERY unsusual!

I thought this was cool! It was sent to me by my friend Rev. Joyce who said it came to her, originally from Rev. Peggy Price, via the United Ministers’ listserv:

Easter is always the 1st Sunday after the 1st full moon after the Spring Equinox, (which is March 20). This dating of Easter is based on the lunar calendar that Hebrew people used to identify Passover, which is why it moves around on our Roman calendar. Based on the above, Easter can actually be one day earlier (March 22) but that is pretty rare.

Here’s the interesting info: This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives! And only more »

Today is Speical!

Okay – I know every day is special, after all.
But it JUST occurred to me, as the day is closing (sun is setting that is) here – I HAVE to add a blog today with the awrareness that I can’t do that again on this date for YEARS!

That’s all.
Just wanted to say – Happy Leap Year Day!
Jump for Joy!
Or leap, if you must.

Loving you, Melissa

Little Prizes from Spirit

I LOVE God’s amazing timing sometimes…
I had called our house in Hawaii when I was on the way to the airport, on my way here. I left myself a message to call some dear friends of ours’ whom I was missing and wanting to connect with. It had been about 4 or 5 months since we had connected at all.

And today? They called us here! They were in Santa Rosa and were wanting to connect with us. We missed them there but got to connect on the phone, and I didn’t even have to dial!

Don’t you just LOVE those synchronistic timing things?

Okay – but then we had an extra-added fun thing tonight after I’d written this, more »

Starting a new thing!

Well – here I am, writing my first ever blog! WooHOO!

I know this makes me sound old, but I remember the day when none of us even HAD e-mail. Even days when we had to handwrite things! Goodness – that was, indeed, WAY “back in the day”. (Not sure: Is “back in the day” now a back in the day kind of saying?)

Anyway – it’s 2008. And here I am, on my flight to Hawaii, typing away on my fabulous laptop in order to stay ever more connected with YOU! What a miracle! And they just keep on coming too (the miracles I mean)!

I was told recently to be sure I don’t wait until I have profound things more »
