Walking by this Flower Shop is going to be one thing I do for myself everyday for the rest of my stay in Wiesbaden. It refreshes my spirit on so many levels. And it is so easy. I love it when you see something that feeds your soul and you can feel it in your body instantly. A practice that can bring you back to yourself as easily as taking a breath.

I pass by this coffee/pastry cafe everyday on my way to my car.
But i have yet to taste - but soon. . . .

There are so many choices in life. So many directions we can wander into - seemingly by accident - but I don't believe that anymore. What I do believe is that life never happens the way we plan. I love the saying, "We make plans, and God laughs".

The unfolding of unpredictable directions is happening all around me these days. In my life, in the lives of the people I am working with, in every corner of the world. Another lesson in learning to surf the waves.

I look at the people I work with and can't help but think about them going to afganistan again. Thousands more to leave very soon. There is a deep sense of loss here. It is impossible to ignore.
