Beautiful Boy

Posted on

Recently, I watched the movie, Beautiful Boy, a terrifying account of one boy’s spiral with drugs, and his family’s parallel journey trying to help while they grieve, rage, and worry.  The movie is poignant, disturbing, warming; bringing the viewer back time and time again to the elusive idea of control. The young man trying to […]

WILL IT EVER END? YOU ASK

Posted on

I remember when my son was small, and he would take eternal showers.  Not just long but NO HOT WATER LEFT FOR DAYS, FOREVER LONG. I would continuously retrieve him, in his pruned state, and wrap him in a towel; talking about water conservation and time effectiveness.  For a young boy who just loved to […]

How do you discern what’s true for you?

Posted on

Writing is the way I sift through externally amassed knowledge and internally birthed wisdom. It is my collator of truth; discerning between what is suggested and what is seeded. In our busy worlds that fly forward without much pause between the “doings” of our day, our soul seeded wisdom becomes just another ingredient into our […]

Embodied Creativity

Posted on

I sketch a mean stick woman in warrior 2, view the 64 crayon box as my “artist’s kit,” and sing within a single octave with no vocal flexibility.  I can barely coordinate an outfit that doesn’t involve birkenstocks, and my idea of fashion is an ensemble that can be de-layered so I can conveniently roll […]

Have you placed yourself below the fold?

Posted on

I have heart-felt intentions of carving out time for all that I know will serve me. Meditation, self-care rituals, time with family and friends, retreats that give me a prolonged pause. And yet, we all experience that true shifts in patterns are so much harder than they appear. We have story around “not enough” (time, […]

Social Justice

This morning, I attended Mindful Mornings in Asheville, a monthly gathering designed to create a meaningful conversation around lasting impact.  My dear friend, Micah & her partner in vision, Ali, organize, curate, and facilitate this opportunity from a place of service, and I am grateful. Today’s topic was social justice.  The speaker has dedicated his […]
