The Curious Dream

  A book is a dream that you hold in your hands. ― Neil Gaiman Hello, Lovelies. I’m a little late to the page this morning. I had the most curious dream last night.

The Bad Night

Sometimes life will tear your house apart so you can see the cracks in the foundation. ―Vanessa Ooms Hey, Lovelies. I didn’t sleep a wink last night. At first I thought it was because of stress. Then I thought it might have been the one decaf coffee I drank early that morning. So, I meditated. […]

The Old Boyfriend

If You Are Feeling Flat Or Exhausted Right Now, Read This

  It’s funny: I always imagined when I was a kid that adults had some kind of inner toolbox full of shiny tools: the saw of discernment, the hammer of wisdom, the sandpaper of patience. But then when I grew up I found that life handed you these rusty bent old tools – friendships, prayer, […]

A Really Helpful Affirmation For You

My Ten Point Survival Plan for Sensitive Souls

“There are certain children who are told they are too sensitive, and there are certain adults who believe sensitivity is a problem that can be fixed in the way that crooked teeth can be fixed and made straight. And when these two come together you get a fairytale, a kind of story with hopelessness in […]

Me And The Moon

  Dreams are like the old stories where wolves are seekers always running, and women carry fire in their bare hands and light the dark paths before them. Old stories hold that the birds will fly all the miles of the world to tell your secrets to the rising moon, and men will walk over […]

Standing On The Edge Of The Known World

It’s Not Enough For Me to Have the WooWoo without the Grit

To my mind, ‘magic’ is the hard-to-define quality of the things that stir up mystical feelings like amazement, curiosity, imagination, and above all wonder.

Monsoon Weather

Jungle rain had no beginning or end; it grew like foliage from the sky, branching and arching to the earth, sometimes in solid thickets entangling the islands, and other times, in tendrils of blue mist curling out of coastal clouds. The jungle breathed an eternal green that fevered men until they dripped sweat the way […]

Getting Ready For A Mystical New Year’s Eve
