Fully aware of how precious life is and remembering the tender, exciting and amazing muses that I have been blessed and no doubt favored to know.. I wrote this list. Enjoy it. Create a life you love.

The Things I will do Before You Are Gone.©
By Adrienne Wallace (June 2008)
1) I will tell you, "I love you more than anything ...except GOD."

2) I will squeal with delight when you have achieved something new or gotten more of what makes you happy.

I will stay as you pursue your delight and be a part of you capturing it.

3) I will steal your pillowcase when you are out of the room and replace it with a fresh one.

I will put the one I steal on my pillow so I can smell your essence when I nap or sleep.

4) I will hold your hand even if you were 'just my manicurist' and look into your eyes and say "Thank You"...

Maybe you're touching hands all day, but I want you to remember that mine appreciates yours. They are so warm

5) I will wish you the fullness of life because God has whispered to me that such is the intention for all of us.

6) I'll tell you the beauty I see in you, within moments of seeing it because moments are fleeting and this time may not come again. I say this hoping I get the chance to tell you again. I walked away too know when.

7) I will still you long enough to make sure you feel your heart's beat because the ability to do that is the key to real power.
Let me come close enough to hear it beating. It is music to my ears.

8) I will tell you the truth as I know it and encourage you to live your own truth.

9) I will ask you if you are happy. Are you? I want that for you more than anything.

10) I will consistently remind you to be careful what you do around children , because what they experience changes them forever.

11) I will ask you to come help me blow up ballons if we are together preparing for a celebration or nothing at all actually.

I will not let you tie the ends because I'll release several into my own hands and face so that I can feel your breath.

I may keep one so I have your breath even after you've left.

These things are guaranteed.

What will you do?

Before I am gone.

Love, light , and you know the rest......

Where are you?
Little girl with broken wings but full of hope….
Where are you?

Where are you?
Today is the day
I will not sit still and give in anymore

Today I rise
I don’t care if you ignore my beauty

Through the alchemy of my darkest nights I heal and thrive
Today I rise

I move through the world with confidence and grace
I open my eyes and I am ready to face
My wholeness as a woman and my limitless capacities
I will walk my path with audacity

I am a healer
I am a queen
A wise women – A wild woman

You, ME and HIM

My dear friend who lives all too far away asked me how she could go about communicating the end of a relationship to someone who she loses courage to let go of  when they are face to face. She said it was only because she 'cannot stand the look of devastation that would be in his eyes'. I told her the "devastation" was stringing that person along when she knew it was over.  She said, "He is not the 'him' that I need or want."
I then told her to write about it. I find that for those of us tied( professionally and personally) to media and artistic expression, it is easier to get it out that way. We read look or listen to it and all of a sudden ..courage to make it happen face to face comes along. In fact, I think this works well for almost anybody.

She said she would try and in my own knowing of myself and imagining what I would do if the situation were mine, I wrote a piece that would be my spiritual and poetic truth if I had to cut the wrong one l…
