Morning Stillness

I like to start my days in this space of deep connection. No matter how I wake up … in a funk, worried, happy, excited … when I sit out here and simply listen for a bit, I am connected with everything. The essence drops in, makes itself known to me.  I want to capture…

Endings into Beginnings

Empty hammock on quiet beach. with words "Go gently. Endings always morph into beginnings."

We’re in the Balsamic phase of the moon (or waning crescent). For the 18 years that I’ve been aware of moon cycles, it has been about releasing into the space between. That sliver of space between the end and the beginning … the space between exhale and inhale. My favorite of all the phases, where…

Stay curious. Notice the connections. Allow it all ~ Be satisfied with what is, with an ongoing curiosity about what else could be. What happens when I am willing to be curious about what my body can actually do rather than fold into the story of what it can no longer do because of pain, balance…

Haha!! First thought after reading just this first sentence of today’s  Moonnote by Heidi Rose Robbins? “Believe it or not, the Moon stays in CANCER void of course again until 9:18pm pacific time when it moves into Leo.” Well fuck me now!

I Can't Stay Angry (and I Wish I Could)

Grey zen stone in shape of heart, on sand background

I can’t stay mad at the One who a month ago told me he needed space after talking pretty much every day – every other day. No more than two days went by without us connecting for tiny moments. We have been on again off again for 13 years. Maybe 13 is the number of…

Pigeons on a Wire with the words "A Remembrance: Why Hospice?

I am getting ready to return to hospice in a volunteer capacity and I am excited! The volunteer training starts in less than two weeks. One of the things asked of me in prep for the training is to find a photo that represents what hospice means to me … I sat with it over…

Touch Starved?

Cuddling Kittens with words "Animals have it Down"

  Heads up … this is not my usual peaceful and calm offering. And yet, it is what showed up this morning – all I can think of is that perhaps there is a nugget that will offer relief to someone here? I never know … I simply offer. I just had a big giant…

One More Time – How Can This Be Easy?

Four pairs of brightly colored flip flops on sand with words "How can this be easy?'

Continuing in the how can this be easy vein, I had a delightful experience of ease this week with  one of my clients.  She has genuinely been too busy to focus on completing her website and while the stop-start timing has felt disjointed for me and it is not something I care to repeat, (I…

woman dancing through the air
