A Pajama Day

I’m sliding into the end of the year; that parenthetical time when holiday happenings sweep me out of my daily routine. The frenetic rush towards Christmas is past, and I sit replete with too much delicious food, and beloved company, cast upon a now quiet shore, as the high tide of celebration recedes until New […]

On The Other Side Of Loss…

It’s been two years. Two years since I sold my farm, gave away my beloved horses, and felt the lights go out inside of me. Horses are my first love – and they speak to my soul in a way that nothing else can or does. I began riding at six years old, and spent […]

Thank You

  The other night I heard the song, “Thank You”, by Led Zeppelin.             If the sun refused to shine,             I would still be loving you.             When mountains crumble to the sea,             there would still be you and me…   It’s been years… Not since the song […]

I hate puking…

I don’t like puking. Not that anyone does… but I REALLY don’t like it. I end up throwing up about once every 10 years – and only under the most dire of circumstances. I’ll stay green for days, rather than let myself throw up and feel better. Thankfully I don’t have a queasy stomach, and […]

After the darkness…

  I usually take my walks at dawn… watching the sky lighten, the sun rise, and the world wake around me, but this evening, I headed out for a walk instead, as I’d managed to make it to 7:00pm without ever getting out of my pajamas! The wind had shifted throughout the afternoon, bringing a […]

Finding the gift in ‘goodbye’

For those of you who know me, you know that I’ve been processing a difficult ‘goodbye’ during this last season of my life. As a true introvert (recharge alone), I’ve allowed myself the space to go within, to be with this transition, and to stay present with all that’s come up. Thankfully, this hasn’t been […]

What if…

  My dear friend Tracy Green emailed me with a thought provoking question… What if everyone woke up each morning and said “What if?” What if everyone woke up each morning and said “I wonder”. What if we helped them to realize that part in themselves? What if we spread the word of wonder? What […]
