J-QG on beach

My favorite place to practice Sunlight Qi Gong is the seashore at sunrise.  My husband and I had the surprise opportunity this week to stay at a friend’s home there for a couple of days to celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary.  Touching sand, ocean and sky, breathing in fresh morning air, my heart opens with gratitude, a smile comes alive, greeting the rising sun.

When I die, please don’t see my passing as a tragedy.  It cannot be.  I have lived so many lives already, loved so deeply, been loved so beautifully and faithfully.  I am grateful for every extra moment of life, every sunrise, sunset, wave of the ocean, every breath, every moment with family and friends, every opportunity to tell my beloved how much I love him.





  1. So beautiful. Thank you for the reminder how wonderful life is. Congratulations on being with the love of your life for 22 years.

    • Dear Jenny,
      Great to hear from you….this came up on my yahoo email account, which I never read anymore. I think your email address hasn’t worked for our latest emails about the retreats. So, I’ll try to re-send. So happy we connected and love you, Loretto sister, forever! Hope to see you in FL in the winter/spring!

      Much love,
