November is going to be a month of miracles. With a recent family occurrence, my life will be changing in rapid and, I am certain, profoundly enlightening ways. In looking forward to the joys and challenges of this growth opportunity I have committed to (which already has me questioning whether I am in over my head, but not once questioning the reason for my commitment), I would like to remain in touch with the vitality of my dreams, even as I will be grounded in the reality of the moment much more frequently. It is with the intent to balance these energies, as well as the knowledge that I need to, right NOW, in any way possible, use my gifts for the concrete betterment of the world, that I have also committed to this challenge: to write a poem a day for 30 days, in support of a non-profit that works with immigrant, refugee and migrant communities to provide education and resources to learn English, become involved members of their communities, and obtain tools necessary to maintain economic independence and stability.

Either way, you can follow my progress toward this goal, as I will be posting my poem-a-day right here, and I hope, while they may not all be profoundly enlightening or brilliantly insightful or beautifully eloquent, that each person who reads them will be touched in some deep way, and perhaps themselves inspired to help someone else change their life for the better or to live their lives in a more soulful way. That is what I am dedicating my November to: sharing my unique gifts, and all that I have been blessed with, to help create a miracle for someone who needs one.
The only thing it takes to create a miracle in this world is to do what you love with love - to follow your own heart and express the love that flows from it as best you can. We each can be responsible for creating our own little miracles in life, for ourselves, and for others.
