What if we turned it off?

Posted on

As a learner by nature, I have always followed the news closely; current events, shifts in industry, leadership theory, new research….  You name it, I’m fascinated by it.  (Except science – my brain turns off right around the 3rd standard deviation reference). Much as who we spend time with shapes our perspective, what we invite […]

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 […]

Time to Lower The Bar

Posted on

One of the most frequent questions I am asked by other women is “How Do You Do It All?”  My answer has been the same for over a decade…. I have low expectations of perfection.  Everyone giggles uncomfortably at this answer, but the truth is, that is exactly how I “DO IT ALL.” (Whatever that […]

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.

Just the word distraction messages that there is something we would rather be doing.  Distracted from what?  For most of us, this is a mirky question […]

What will be different this year?

Posted on

There is nothing magical that happens as the NY Times Square ball drops; dividing one year from the next. It is merely a passage of a moment, and yet, it feels symbolic of possibility & fresh starts. Thus, our tradition of taking stock, setting goals, clarifying intention, and committing to resolutions. I traveled over the […]

Pure Prayer

I wrote this prayer for the season for myself, and I contemplated whether to share.  Prayer is a personal and sacred practice; however, in the spirit of the season, I am posting.   I hope it touches you in a meaningful way. I am grateful for all of you. ———————————————————————————————- My Prayer Of Hope: May I […]

A LESSON IN CIVILITY FROM THE ANIMALS

Posted on

It is no wonder that in the flock of geese who have lived together for generations, migrating from here to there, that there is never a mass murderer. It is no wonder that even the finicky, energetic donkey lives in peace with her family. It is no wonder that the birds fly and sing in […]
