Confession

I let the phone gently hit the floor With a dull and crashing thud It had to be done I was glued to the thing And paying attention to superficial me Worried about likes and loves It’s irrelevant you see I’m banging my head up against the wall On a rather regular basis I’ve forgotten… Continue reading Confession

Science of the Soul

Several months ago I sat at my computer reading over a list of possible retreat options. Usually once a year, if not twice, I visit The Peace Village... a meditation and learning center located in the Catskill Mountains, about 90 minutes from my home in upstate New York. I have been to several different themed… Continue reading Science of the Soul

Who We Are

There is a little loud voice Inside my head That tells me I don't do enough. It runs me ragged with a constant nagging Of the things that need to be done. It demands that I go That I never slow That no one can win if they can't possibly show The exhaustion that bleeds… Continue reading Who We Are

The lead character, Max - an overly ambitious and intense medical director used as his mantra "how can I help?" to every person that crossed his path.

I Like…

My children have been arguing a lot lately. I guess it's to be expected with a 3 year old and a 7 year old... but it's incredibly draining and also contagious. With them at odds so frequently, my husband and I become tense too. Then before long it seems like no one can agree on… Continue reading I Like…

Your Power

There was a time in my life when I would sit in front of our old TV and watch The Wizard of Oz (in its entirety) on repeat over and over and over ...day after day. Ask my mom! She'll vouch for me. I had Oz dolls, books, ornaments, posters, signs, figurines. I even used… Continue reading Your Power

Lighter

I hit the snooze bar 5 times this morning. The thing that got me out of bed was my commitment to a good friend who wanted to come down to the beach with me and meditate with the lake. I finally got up, grabbed some coffee and my blanket and got down to the beach.… Continue reading Lighter

Your Work

Over the past few months I have been making some pretty important discoveries while reading Tarot. There are many different "types" of cards that come into play during the course of the readings. There are some cards that are about your mind, thinking and logic. There are some that are more geared at your emotions,… Continue reading Your Work
