Source of Inspiration is in its fourth year. I have refrained from writing an “about” page as these poems are not about me, rather about us. In them we all find inspiration and life lessons to help us grow. When I started this blog, I had never written or read poetry, and had no idea what a blog was or that there were thousands of them. It has astounded me to watch the readership grow…surely an action of Source from whom we receive these beautiful poems.
But many of you have asked me to tell you a bit about myself, so here goes. I am from the US and have been a volunteer for the past 13 years at an ecological project and game preserve in central Brazil. I am retired now but had a program called “Stars of Life” that was for local children with disabilities and emotional problems. I also held free retreats for women in crisis. This work was a blessing beyond my wildest dream. I had no experience in these areas but simply turned to Source to show me what to do. Out of that came an interesting combination of equine therapy and other therapeutic modalities with the children.
One of the surprises of the blog is the more than 35,000 comments from readers from around the world. Such incredible sharing, caring, with readers often responding to each other in the most loving, beautiful ways. I am deeply honored by the readership of this blog, although am just the scribe. Still, I am have loved getting to know many of our readers and thank each of you for your comments and friendship.
I send each of you a big hug and much Love and Light, pat
