A ROLLER COASTER RIDE
Up and down, up and down
It’s the pull of gravity isn’t it?
You’re down longer than you’re up
Isaac said it best
It’s easier going up
But coming down is frightful
No time to prepare
Up and down, up and down
The unsteadiness is making you sick
You wanna get off
But you can’t… Continue

Behold! I send you forth as sheep among wolves; be ye therefore as WISE as serpents yet as GENTLE as doves.
LIGHT OUT OF AFRICA
OUR deepest fear is NOT that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our LIGHT, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ASK OURSELVES, WHO AM I TO BE SO BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED AND FABULOUS?
Actually WHO ARE YOU NOT TO BE?

Invite Pamela to Your Next Event
“Pamela’s message is real — not contrived. She’s a living testimonial to how the ‘can do’ attitude will win out over the ‘I can’t.’ What’s more, she’s entertaining, amusing and fun to listen to.”

I need a new flow
from my pen…
I have something to say…
As I struggle to pull it out of the center of my Soul
I am perplexed… but not vexed
Searching for the right text,
peek a boo
I am starting to see Your light
…on my knowledge in seed
…I feel the warmth of the action…
starting to… Continue

The old elm tree sits by the river grandly
For all to see…
…and listen to you recite to me
Your soul written, and spoken so affectionately …
…how they create a twinkle in my eye
That say yes…he is the guy
…and your words flow like breath, …onto me
The love you want to express
I feel heat deep in my chest
~I quiet your lips
With a gentle kiss,
Followed by an inviting glance… Continue

For my Soul…
The intensity of it makes me turn and wonder.
This feeling is so moving. It causes me to ponder.
The energy of it can be felt, and seen by others.
Don’t move; don’t blink…just sit, for a moment and think.
Shocking, because I didn’t ask for this,
But freely I accept an undeniably precious gift.
Hot, but not burning, tingling and luring.
Cymbals with no sound.
Butterflies, all sizes floating, moving, and churning.

Dancing a gallop for all to see
~believe in yourself
when you see my strength… that you have to be
what I look at, when it is you… I see
My rhythm is starting
I feel myself moving…running, jumping, and leaping
I can soar with HIS wind blowing under
…I feel you far in the rear
Heart pounding, preparing to leave your space
That is a dark hole without light, nor vigor
Feeling my words…
Your soul is trying to learn a new… Continue

Barack Obama is a perpetual gaffe machine. Let us count the ways, large and small, that his tongue has betrayed him throughout the campaign:
Last May, he claimed that tornadoes in Kansas killed a whopping 10,000 people: “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” The actual death toll: 12.
Earlier this month in Oregon, he redrew the map of the United States: “Over the last 15… Continue
