Owning our Ignorance as we Evolve

Don't most of us feel safer, more secure, more at ease, when we feel like we know what we're doing? It's called the comfort zone, and as many of us know by now, that ain't where growth is happening. But I think this interesting phenomenon occurs when we've been on a path of self growth [...]

Stopping to Smell the Roses

These sweet, sunny roses run along my fence line, and how perfect a reminder of the shining, lightness of summer! It's kinda impossible not to feel bright when you're looking at a yellow rose...I mean, "stopping to smell the roses" became a cliche for a reason! Mama earth is blooming in our part of the [...]

As I Sail Life’s Fickle Sea…

We live in a world that is increasingly ungrounded and ungrounding.

A Blessing for Healing from Theft

Last week my purse was stolen out of the trunk of my car as I was hiking in Santa Fe, my new home. I’ve traveled all over the world by myself and have never had my property stolen - I’ve lost my fair share of items, and surprisingly often had them returned. So it was [...]
