Day 2 – Silence

I woke up at 5 am today and got out of bed at 5:30, went into our tent room to meditate. Soon after, both dogs, Nico and Luna, followed and together we listened to the birds and stared out into a peaceful green backyard. Excited, and a little nervous about keeping my commitment to myself, […]

Day 1 – This Magic Moment

When I was in my 20’s I was pursuing my music career and living in Manhattan in a little studio apartment. My bed was five feet high on a loft that I had built so I could have my piano in my apartment. My dresser was under my bed. I had pink carpeting and I […]

My Grandma Mollie, the epitome of ageless beauty.

Room for Growth

It’s funny how symbolic things become when transformation is apparent in one’s life.  I’ve been noticing how the little succulent plants I bought over a year ago were outgrowing their ceramic pots.

Roads & The People Map

We all have roads and people maps and on them are people pointing us in the direction of our dreams.  Sometimes, it’s a story they share that reminds us that’s where we want to go too. Sometimes, it’s a suggestion or a bit of advice.  I feel  like the quintessential “grasshopper” of sorts and have […]

Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman

If you haven’t read this book, you are truly missing out.  It is one of my favorites and not just because Beth is also one of my favorite women, but because it is so moving and powerful.  I didn’t want it to end… and now I wait patiently, hoping there will be a movie made […]

Balancing Act
