Embracing Becoming

The projects that needed wrapping up will still be here when I return in a few days. The couple I haven't started yet, will also be here. I'll be able to finish those up over the weekends. In the meantime, I also need to expand my circle even if it remains mostly virtual since we're... Continue Reading →

Returning & Moving Forward

I'm returning to work tomorrow. Summer break is done. I had last minute project completions planned for today, but one-by-one they fell by the way-side. What I did get accomplished are basic household chores that I've been neglecting in favor of trying to finish projects. Another thing that got accomplished was a nap which greatly...

Summer Daze

As my summer break is winding down, I'm frantically finishing up what projects I can and find myself reflecting on the last 7 weeks. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked, things aren't growing as much as I would have hoped, but I also see what I have accomplished. I went... Continue Reading →

Paths that Cross

My cousin lost her husband on the summer solstice. He had been under hospice care for 3 months and slipped the bonds of earth on his 79th birthday. My cousin was the essence of love and radiated such grace in letting her beloved go. They are both so special to me. Hank was gentle, kind,... Continue Reading →

Response to End-Timers

I've been getting occasional texts from a family member with videos of someone talking about the "end times." While I appreciate his concern for me, I don't agree at all.

She had many adventures on the planet where she was born. She made friends with a myriad of the magical and mystical. She splashed in rivers,... Continue Reading →

Leafing Out with New Growth

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve actually started writing something only to not get it finished. Then by the time I get back to it, the moment has passed. Anyway, here I am – back in the game. I’m working on my place again. I had to rehang a drum once the hook... Continue Reading →

Some Days Are Better Than Others

Today, I had someone tell me that I build community. That I'm one of these people who do that naturally. Really? Then why have I been through so many? Maybe building them is not the problem but sustaining them is? Where's my community now? I'm not even sure how to make friends any more or... Continue Reading →


When new things start showing up on the horizon, sometimes old things have to give way and lovingly be released. Letting go is not always easy. It takes time to reflect and release. Sometimes to grieve. I'm one who has picked myself up off the floor more than once. I've even had others comment on... Continue Reading →
