Once Upon a Time

There was a woman who figured out who she was - a storyteller. She told stories to entertain and to educate. She lived stories in her dreams and journeys. 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 →

Redefinitions

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 →

She assists in healings I experience with shamans over Zoom when I'm with a shamanic group I'm learning from. One night, she was peacefully laying on the back of... Continue Reading →

Mind, Body, and Spirit Are One

Now, to unite, integrate, and emerge. This has been a message and realization that has been coming through loud and clear lately. I have a long history of asthma and have had after-effects of Covid. Whenever I have even the slightest cold, it goes directly to my lungs and triggers asthma - sometimes rather starkly.... Continue Reading →

Set Back, Move Forward

I had a health set back in coming down with a cold. It immediately hit my asthma, and blew up into a sinus infection. I ended up on antibiotics and steroids. With a long history of chronic asthma, this seems to be a pattern since I had Covid 19 last summer. Now that six months... Continue Reading →

Serendipity

Yesterday was my dad's birthday. He's been gone 25 years, but I always remember it. As a child, it was always an exciting time. It meant my birthday was next. . . only a month and a day away. I often write him a letter as I did yesterday. This time I asked him for... Continue Reading →
