    Your moon kitty reminded me that I had a dream last night I was watching the sky during a meteor shower. All of a sudden, a rather large star exploded into light, creating a multitude of smaller lights that floated outward, leaving a black, sea-like hole with a shore-like border densely populated with many smaller stars. Then the stars started to dance, like in a kaleidoscope. I’m so glad I remembered this dream of my very own big bang. The dream suggestion came from a friend’s computer wallpaper of the firmament, the dream memory compliments of you. Thanks!

    Missing your writing, I guess just like everything else around here… I mean, leaves are falling off trees, the sun started hiding behind clouds, the days have grown shorter and colder, even the birds have stopped singing… Feels like November…

    Mr. Mraz,

    Just thinking about the power of sound and words and having one’s heart in a place to really connect with universal healing. Life is not easy and at the same time, songs bring comfort and healing.

    You have become friends and a heart healer to many people who listen to your music. I am curious, do you intentionally create your lyrics for this purpose? To touch the lives of those that you haven’t met or met yet?

    I have heard things in your music over the years that I truly resonate with and needed to hear in my own processes. Your words hit at the core of my own struggles and brought of a lot of healing. I just want to acknowledge this. I trust that you continue because of the value you create on a large scale, the lives that you touch and the joy that it brings, to create with such purpose. In case you ever happen to doubt, I would write it in gold, your efforts have meant a lot to me. I sincerely hope I get to meet you one day.

    I’m looking forward to hearing your new album and to hear how courageous you all were in the process of creating it.

    Many blessings and Merci Beaucoup.

    Love when autumn warms the frost into reflective, liquid droplets of sunshine.
    Everything starts to glisten.

    Especially gorgeous, dew at dawn.
    Can you beat that?

    Much love,

    Just thought of this post as I uploaded an old project from ’08 to my site about the duality of light and dark. I have been fascinated by light metaphorically and literally – for all it provides and what it represents.

    In my opinion, light always win – as close to the darkness as it gets.
    The video can be viewed here: http://www.lauraswork.com

    Warmest regards to you.

    In 35 seconds into the video, I made a connection of more than what was said. I had just read a couple lecture about bees from 1923. Why? I was drawn to it mostly because I worry about them and our relationship to this insect once revered and brought into homes. This lecture was worried about their disappearance and how organic was tampered with by the new farming of bees and explained the intricate details of what a bee does and why that results in medicinal miracles for us humans. Hmm, yup we have a shortage of bees and even Disney films made a movie to inspire.

    In the 35 seconds in this video it shows that if the timing is just right you would find yourself in the Sun receiving the vitamins needed. That drawing brought me to the bees honeycomb shape the hexagon an ingenious way to save space and like a crystal pointing as above so below, a perfect balance.

    We like the bees need sunlight, flowers and air . . .we need love and that is what nature is. A queen bee is born only when the sun is present she is fully developed at 16 days (sweet sixteen coincidence)a worker bee takes 21 days (the same time the sun revolves once around it’s own axis)and the drones (the males)23-24 days they are the only ones to receive the darkness upon waking up they have sun/earth. So what right! Well, the Queen and worker bees are essentially babies of the sun and therefore they are able to generate a love for work. Worker bees build and work for a greater love, they have no sexual will as they are just love; they have it in themselves to give to their community. I know I enjoy a view when I work and I would enjoy it more so if I had my desk in the sand or under a tree.
