presence –
is about holding
true, beautiful,
strong and vibrant no matter
who is
or is not

it is a way,
a manner and a spirit
brought to each moment —

without self-importance,
without self recrimination,
yet with
the truest of one’s Self

it is the all-at-once recognition
we are both essential and non
and always
we are able
to choose

in grace and love.

About Martha Phelps Studio ~ creative on purpose

...a meandering journal of a changing life and the unexpected graces it brings. Earlier posts may provide some history, but this series of writings aren't likely to follow a straight line as I explore topics such as raising kids, making choices, self discovery, the impact of change on a family and how to (hopefully) live with balance and purpose.
