Too heavy? GET LIGHT! Check out


Cutting to the chase for those short-attention-spanners looking to slim down: PLEASE do yourself a favor and check out my new friend Sierra Goodman’s website that is dedicated to helping people alter their self-image and shed the old heavy self for the new LIGHT person that’s always been within you. The REAL you. her fab website is  She’s also on Facebook and Twitter and you can contact her there through links on her website.

i’m pretty new to facebook and twitter, having written and illustrated Lordflea for a couple years now. The world of social media is pretty intriguing, as long as one doesn’t take it too seriously, or get into it as an addiction. I’m meeting some mind-blowing folks, and expanding my interests in surprising ways.

one of the cool people I’ve friended on FB (don’t ask me how it happens, it just does!) is Sierra Goodman. She’s interested me since I first saw her posts, usually about positive, uplifting stuff that I’m into, but also about Costa Rica, where she lives most of the time (in Drakes Bay in Puntarenas) and also because she works with whales and dolphins. Speaking as a reincarnated dolphin (I kid you NOT! un huh) she’s very cool.

Here’s a tribute I’ve painted to my brethren:

Travels in the Abyss

Travels in the Abyss

Meanwhile, back at the Lordflea Ranch, I’m wildly enthralled in the final-final-FINAL last edit of “Heart Island” my unpublished novel (thank goodness!) and soon will be sending it off to the Bellwether Prize. The reason I’m glad I haven’t published “Heart Island” is, one of the requirements for this literary competition is that the entrant MUST be unpublished, and …. most delightful to me …. the entrant must be a socially-engaged novel. This is what “Heart Island” is all about … plus much much more. Soon you’ll be able to find out all about this story of a spiritual seeker who travels to the abyss herself, in search of the Light. check out the first couple of chapters at Heart Island Story, its own blog.

So my friends, that’s what I’m doing? Hope you’re all enjoying life and being good, or at least being creative at whatever mischief you’re up too.

Don’t forget to check me out on my Twitter, as I send out mini-posts twice a day now. I’m and of course, i’m on Facebook, too at

cheerio and sending you LIGHT, to keep light (even if you’re slim!)

Destroy the Destroyers of Love: fear, anger, depression

Life is both hard, as Scott Peck states, and it’s a Mystery too, as Chief Joseph reminds us. To me, the key to understanding how to navigate these oft-dangerous waters of life, fraught with both hidden joys and sorrows — is to follow what my Teacher has shown me to be true: Love is the answer to all human questions. Love is the destroyer of all things that destroy life’s joys.

Whether we’re talking about fear of the unknown, fear of spiders or disease, or anger about not getting our way, or sadness over feeling victimized — these things are all subjective: meaning, we can change our way of thinking. We absolutely can change the way we feel, about anything.

It’s that easy, my Teacher said with a sparkle in her eye, holding her hand aloft … giving it a gentle turn to demonstrate how everything in life — from the best news to the worst possible horror — is within our power to receive as a demonstration of the Power That Is, or — we can cry, freak out, scream “How unfair!'” Yet resisting the unfathomable way of the Mystery will never bring acceptance to our hearts. Only Love delivers acceptance safely, surely, as its trustworthy comrade. All the negative emotions: fear, anger, depression: they’re simply of our own making.

Choose Love. Embrace the expansive, sublime and completely FREE Power that is your human birthright. Nothing is so terrible it can’t be remedied with Self Love. Love of Self reminds us we are part of Nature. Love assures that we benefit from the life-sustaining rays of the sun as well as devastating storms and catastrophes — all part of the eons-long human story being written by All.

Choose well, my friends. Make your life a beautiful, accepting prayer of forgiveness and Love for All. Because earthly life is, after all, too short to waste on misery. Your choices make your life your heaven, or your own personal hell. Choose Love.

In the Light, with Love, your pal Lordflea
