A little reflection of who I am.

Missy’s Creed

I believe in cause and effect. I believe
in the arrow of time; I believe in the answers
math and science offer us. I believe science
does not have all of the answers; especially
in matters of culture and consciousness. I believe in
love, sanctifying grace, and that there isn’t
much difference between
the two. I believe in forgiveness and
reconciliation. I believe in hearty appetites
and a good glass of wine. I believe in
winter sunrises and summer sunsets.
I believe I’ll have another cup of coffee
with vanilla chai spice. I believe in
international flavors. I believe my guardian angel
was taking a bath when I got in trouble;
trying to decide between the lavender
or chamomile bath salts. Flipping her blonde curls
to one side and looking up with
sparrow eyes, surprised. I believe
I felt my mother’s pain when she died;
like someone pulling on an organ
inside of me. I believe in prayer. I believe God
may be a woman; or a gay man.
I believe music can heal and
hurt. I believe music is a form of prayer.
I believe time heals some things;
but not all things. I believe in the collective
unconscious and the collective conscience.
I believe an ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure; a stitch in time saves nine;
a penny saved is just a penny. I believe a penny
spent is a piece of gum. I believe in
Santa Claus, but not the Easter Bunny.
I believe every time a bell rings, an angel
gets her wings.
I believe the tooth fairy missed
a lot of teeth. I believe when push comes to shove
you should shake hands and that a
handshake seals the deal. I believe in
kindness, honor, and respect. I believe in freedom,
free will and free pie; free trial offers and
letting freedom ring. I believe love is
hard to find; love makes the world go
‘round; all you need is love; love bears
all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
endures all things. I believe love never ends.
I believe.

Last night my son, Mark, and I went to the Lake Michigan shore to see the sunset. Well after a very sunny day the clouds rolled in just in time to veil the setting sun completely. Still there was frozen beauty and fun. Mark found a meat tenderizer, of all things, and became “Thor!” god of thunder. 🙂

The Grand Haven Lighthouse was remarkably beautiful, drenched in a thick coating of ice. We saw geese on the wing, frozen waves, an empty beach; maybe the most fun of all were the colored ice balls! A woman and her friend had brought them–they were made with colored water and water balloons. Her friend was taking her photo with them on the dunes and allowed me to take her picture as well. They left them behind and they are probably there still–the only spot of color on the winter beach.
