Far and wide…

These exercises are from my last book “Did You Know?: forevermore,” which speaks to everlasting love. I wanted to offer a challenge in honor of Valentine’s Day, which literally takes less than a minute. In fact, I just timed myself at under 25 seconds! Whenever you think about it (daily would be fantastic), follow theContinue reading “Far and wide…”

All in the family…

I have the below article framed in my office. It proudly resides in a shadow box that sits on a little black table in the corner off to the right of my computer desk. The box shares its space with various cards, dried orchid petals, a ceramic dragon and, it goes without saying, but I’llContinue reading “All in the family…”

Call and response…

I was recently told that one of the ways that I meditate is through my writing, which made complete and total sense to me. In the past when someone has asked me if I meditate, I have always said, “Not in the traditional sense,” because I don’t know how else to explain what it isContinue reading “Call and response…”

Blessed is…

I’m borrowing this post title from author Amy B. Scher. It begins a prayer that rightly honors the body, which I have sadly ignored, misunderstood, and taken for granted these many years. Here’s the rest: Blessed is my body and soul that carries the weight of a million lifetimes–and remains, anyway.I thank you for survivingContinue reading “Blessed is…”

The farm…

I believe that we seek connection with others because it provides a space of understanding and acceptance, a back and forth to build upon that feels safe – a kind of seal of approval from another, if you will. That thought came to me one morning not long ago as I was fixing some toast.Continue reading “The farm…”

Weavers…

I binge-watched the second season of A Discovery of Witches a couple of weeks ago. In it, the main character, Diana, a present-day witch, has gone back hundreds of years in time to find a teacher who can help her unlock and understand her natural powers. There is a fantastic line in the third episodeContinue reading “Weavers…”

Book number three…

I got word yesterday that “forevermore” had been released the day before. Yay! It took several hours from the time I received the “Your book is published” email until it showed up on Amazon, but it’s there now. Yay, again! (It is available with other online retailers as well, and will also be offered asContinue reading “Book number three…”

My write words…

My many paper lists of Idea Words have become quite messy over time with doodles, duplicates crossed out, notes in the margins, etc. I thought that I would pretty them up for this blog and list them here. I keep these words and phrases around for inspiration, because I never know what is going toContinue reading “My write words…”

The untravell’d world…

I am a part of all that I have met; Yet all experience is an arch wherethro’Gleams that untravell’d world whose margin fadesFor ever and forever when I move. From the poem “Ulysses” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson “Ulysses” is a dramatic monologue, that has its namesake waxing poetic about his travels that have taken himContinue reading “The untravell’d world…”

Pardon the pun…

On Thursday I committed to publishing the third book in my children’s series, just two months after the second book came out. I hadn’t thought that I would start the process again so soon, but this book has actually been in the works for more than a year now. The last thing left for meContinue reading “Pardon the pun…”
