Loved and Lovable

February – a month that, stereotypically, we turn towards greeting cards with red and pink hearts, roses, chocolates, and are inundated with commercials about diamond jewelry.  Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and whether it… read more

Your Destiny

Whoa – with a title like “Your Destiny”, you’re bound to give pause.  You’ve probably thought about your destiny at a few points in your life.  Is destiny pre-determined?  Is it a well-defined path that you just plod alon… read more

Beacon of Light

The cycle of the seasons here in the northern hemisphere is winding down to the longest night of the year – the winter Solstice.  We enter the time of increased darkness and decreased temperatures. Yet, it is in the dark that the light shin… read more

Cutting My Hair

I sat in the hairdresser’s chair, elevated enough so that I could see my reflection in the mirror before me.  I asked her to take a photo from the back to show my long tresses, flowing in waves and soft curls almost down to my waist.  This was… read more

The morning I wrote this post, I took a Tai Chi class. I find this practice challenging in a different way than I’m used to with yoga. Every time I have taken a class – only a handful of times – I try my best to “get” the movement of the ene… read more

A New Legacy

It’s Veteran’s day as I write this, a powerful day to reflect on. As we honor those who have served in the military to protect the United States, I’m drawn to look at my own family’s legacy from wars long gone by. There is a fair amount of… read more

Wise Sage or Innocent Child?

From a young age, I’ve been attracted to spirituality. In the 80’s, I followed channelers, investigated astrology, read tarot cards, collected crystals, and did a Native American vision quest. In the 90’s, I did shamanic drumming… read more
