Becoming

For a very long time I have been a student if you will. A closet case student, hungry for humility. I banged my head up against the wall at the thought of not being able to teach. I sat in the dark for most of this year, frantic as I was presented with lesson after… Continue reading Becoming

What I’ve Found

I read a post earlier today about the "lost year" idea that is surrounding some of the events that 2020 has brought to us all. I too have been in the thick of it - if you will. Many of us have. The idea that we have "lost" a year seems absurd to me though.… Continue reading What I’ve Found

Creating Love

When you wake up with the sun Early in the morning And your heart is alive and singing So you put on the music to match your mood You are creating the feeling of love. When he holds you in his arms And you feel safe and warm And your wrapped up close and tight… Continue reading Creating Love

The Angel Stone

Many months ago I was scrolling through my Pinterest feed and a pin caught my attention - a photo of a beautiful crystal cluster... soft blues, and silvery gray. I clicked on the link and read a short article about this crystal, called Celestite. From what I gathered, the stone was supposed to be helpful… Continue reading The Angel Stone

My Dear Ludo

You were never an ordinary dog. Never. Not once, even a little bit. And I know, we all say that about all of our dogs… But - you came to us flying through the sky A burgundy red cream puff A Taurean bull in disguise as Dog Or maybe God. You wobbled when you walked… Continue reading My Dear Ludo

Today I pulled an oracle card to remind me of what is important for the day. What came up was ‘Gratitude’ - ‘be grateful for all that you have’.  I have to be honest, there are times when this card comes up and my reaction is immediately one like “oh great… this again”. It sounds… Continue reading With Deep Gratitude

Into the Light

Sometimes the noise in my head gets so loud, when I can't sleep, that I must sit down and write. 6:24am on 1/1/20, this is where we are. It's been a rough few days. There was a major ice and snow storm in upstate NY that left me and my family with on and off… Continue reading Into the Light

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

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

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…
