Frailty: Seems to be the common essence. At one point we all have the same dual feelings. This thread is the mosaic tapestry that weaves us together in commonality.

It is my observation that we are all frailer than we acknowledge to ourselves and others. Our capacity for empathy and compassion is at a premium; we all feel fear, exhaustion, anxiety, frustration, and anger. At certain moments we all experience our reserves of self-reliance, confidence, and hope depleted.

Yet, these feelings can afford us the opportunity to find new resources within ourselves. By accepting and embracing these challenges we heal, grow, and evolve.

I created my career soon after 9/11. Each day, everywhere I went to in NYC I saw people in shock, awe, paranoid, bewildered and in a heightened state of alert. I heard people near and far yearning for emotional comfort and physical security in their homes and interior.

I felt humbled and confident then and to this day; to have been imbued with professional abilities that provide me with the privilege to enter a person’s life to help them find clarity, solace, and organization in a short period of time.

We all want to be:

  • Recognized
  • Invited in
  • Heard
  • Understood
  • Wittnessed

Discernment has shown when one is in awareness and focuses’ on giving and receiving these character attributes, we value our existence. This organically brings civility and invites grace in all of us.
