Standing On The Edge Of The Known World
Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard. Haruki Murakami Hey, Lovelies! I saw my bossy but kind cardiologist on Tuesday, and […]
Well, that sucks…
Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. Emory Austin Hey, Lovelies. Let’s put in a disclaimer first – if you are expecting love, light and unicorns in this post, move along, cos I have the crankies! To be honest, I am not really inclined to write a blog. Or to […]

It’s a week for being strong, getting clear, gaining clarity that can lead you forward, and finding DISCOUNTS in my ETSY store!
Searching For Elders
Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them. I suppose it’s an early form of participation in what goes on. Listening children know stories are there. When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping for one to come out, […]
Enrolment is Open for my Free 30 Day Challenge!

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. Magic is that which renders something beautiful in a spiritual sense. It is that which makes one feel as if the world is more than it is presently understood to be, […]
When Rats Attack!
Chaos is roving through the system and able to undo, at any point, the best laid plans. Terence McKenna Hey, Lovelies! Thanks for all the well-wishes for Ben’s birthday celelbrations.

Stupidly Adoring Cauliflower
I must have flowers, always, and always. Claude Monet Hey, Lovelies. I know, I know. Cauliflower is not what most people consider worthy of a blog post.

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 […]

Come Join My New Year’s Eve Meditation And Manifestation Ritual

What will you change for 2022?
I didn’t ‘grow’ wise, spiritual, or happy. I shrunk towards it. I didn’t add; I subtracted. There is wisdom in simplification. There is strength in recognizing that life is too short for nonsense.
