That Day We Always Knew Was Coming…

“The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.”  ~ Robert Frost I’m feeling achy and sad inside today. Late on Monday afternoon, we sent Ben’s elderly mum to hospital. She’s in her nineties and has always been stubbornly independent. And she’s been able to stay at home on her own with help which is just the […]

Start Again In June!

“Today is the perfect day for a fresh start. Stop delaying, stop making excuses, stop putting it off. Now. Today is the perfect moment. You can change things, you can try. Don’t give up.”  ~ Akiroq Brost I had so many messages yesterday from readers and students and clients all asking me if they could start […]

Checking In On You

“Are you okay?” ~ Popular movement Hello, Lovelies.

Crying Over Sushi

“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   Yesterday was quite a remarkable day for me. In the morning I drove to the other side of town for a meeting with an illustrator […]

Apprehension

“You should have seen this coming,’ they said. I did see it coming. I saw it coming the way you see a train coming when you’re tied to the tracks.” ~ Margaret Andrews   I’ve been awake since I don’t know when. No, that’s not true. 2.36am. I lay awake in the dark for a […]

Changing Your Perspective Changes Everything

“Most misunderstandings in the world could be avoided if people would simply take the time to ask, “What else could this mean?” ~ Shannon L. Alder   I met with a new doctor yesterday. It was a trial of sorts. I wanted to see if they would become my Lyme Recovery Plan A, or whether […]

The Phone Call I Hated to Make

“When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.” ~ Shannon L. Alder   I had to make a phone call yesterday. A […]

Listening as a Healing Tool

“You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. […]
