live it to give it is all about love and connection. Being authentic. Living our lives and sharing it with others. Life is messy and so is this blog. Somedays my organized coach self shows up. Other days it's my vulnerable author. There's a mom that lives inside me alongside a wife, friend, creative muse, ponderer extraordinaire, and multitude of others. I'll introduce you to people who inspire me and offer a peek into my world that very likely intersects with your world. In other words, I will share life in its full, glorious mess with you. I'm honored you're here and I hope you'll come back soon!!  Cheers! Kayce

Summer Snippet - La Bella Luna 

"The moon and I call each other moon." Kabir

Playing Tricks - If Mother Moon wants to lay on her side, so be it :) Sitting on a sidewalk on Alki Beach, reading poetry and writing prose underneath the full August moon. My husband, Bill stands beside me taking photos of the skyline and passing ferry boats. La bella luna floats dreamily higher into the sky. Young girls giggle to my left and a toddler babbles on my right.

Peace, love, and light are my prayers for the day and this gorgeous summer night. 

C'est tout. (That's all.)
