The Energies of December, 2020

There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, What if you fly? Erin Hanson Hello, Lovelies! At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to […]

Thank You, Melbourne and Victoria ❤

Always remember people who have helped you along the way, and don’t forget to lift someone up. Roy T. Bennett Hello, Lovelies. Today I am dedicating my post to the good people of Melbourne and Victoria, who have endured one of the longest and hardest lockdowns in the fight against the spread of COVID. As […]

For Kate, who might read this from Heaven

I was waiting for the longest time, she said. I thought you forgot. It is hard to forget, I said, when there is such an empty space when you are gone. Brian Andreas Dear Kate, I called your number last night. It was late, and I was writing, and sipping tea, and playing music softly […]

I cleared space in my calendar last night

“Death twitches my ear; ‘Live,’ he says… ‘I’m coming.” Virgil Lovelies, I remember one particular morning so clearly. It was the day we all thought I would die. None of the treatments had worked.

We’ve been in self-isolation here at the farm, Ben, me and the pups, since late February. It hasn’t been too bad overall. We’ve loved the slower pace, […]

That long COVID night…

I’ve been thinking: This is what the living do. And yesterday, hurrying along those wobbly bricks in the Cambridge sidewalk, spilling my coffee down my wrist and sleeve, I thought it again, and again later, when buying a hairbrush: This is it.Parking. Slamming the car door shut in the cold. What you called that yearning. […]

No Blog This Morning

“Your days are numbered. Use them to throw open the windows of your soul to the sun. If you do not, the sun will soon set, and you with it.”  Marcus Aurelius Hey, Lovelies. I’ve been up half the night or more, with clients on the other side of the world who have fallen ill, […]

Ordinary Luxuries

“Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people […]
