So I have a ♥ story to share today. I was on my way to Palo Alto for my Spa birthday gift and I crossed the Dumbarton Bridge. As I was driving close to the toll, I began to think how cool it would be to start my 49th year by “paying it forward.” Kindness […]

"The Ear of My Heart."
The title of my blog comes from the opening verse of St. Benedict’s prologue, which tells us to ‘listen carefully and attend with the ear of our hearts.’ St. Benedict was a saint who urged us to listen within the depths of our soul, keeping ourselves attentive to wisdom that comes from the voice within, and inclining our hearts toward deeper understanding.
My blog title is not about “ears” or “hearing” or being able to “hear clearly,” the way hearing people can hear sound. It is about listening with PURE LOVING ATTENTION to what people are really communicating. This is what it means to me to listen and blog with ‘the ear of my heart.’
