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

With Deep Gratitude

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

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
