Welcome to my BLOG

I have been writing daily since I was a little girl.  Since then, much has been written. Writing is my way of making sense of the world. It’s my dance when no one is watching.

Writing without an audience taught me how to write when there is one.

Do nothing differently.

A Bizarre Next Move

10 20 22 I think I found my place.  It’s an old hardware store with lots of windows, plenty of light, plenty of mismatched tables, wide open spaces, and the band “Yes” plays quietly in the background.  I can hear people talking, but it’s a dull and welcoming hum and...

Hands Down

Hands Down

Hands down, that was the most interesting thing you’ve said all day! Hands down, that’s the value add… Where does the saying ‘hands down’ come from? Apparently, I’m not the only one to wonder this.  A quick search reveals pages of explanation all saying the same...

9 30 22 There.  Earplugs.  Jazz in both ears.  Not someone else munching on fruit and cereal. That sound makes an ax murderer out of me.  Heavenly father, thank you for today.  Today is the wide-open day I have been longing for, let’s hope it stays that way.  Please...

9 29 22 September is over.  Wow.  I mean, almost.  Good morning God.  Thank you.  For all of it.  It’s a wowzer if you take time to notice.  And one has to be just a wee bit sensitive to hear it, feel it…the spiritual realm that is, pressing down on you, trying to...

9 15 22 All I ever wanted to do is tell stories.  Why did I make this so hard?  Dear Heavenly Father, help me with this day.  You are always with me, help me remember that.  Keep my heart and mind focused.  Why am I a jumble this morning?  First thing I flooded the...

9 13 22 It hits me.  The only reason I am not a published author is because I never submitted anything.  That’s it. I supposed this should be a relief.  But what gets in the way is the shame.  Which I immediately erase with the love of God.  The only way to tell that...

Lessons in Happiness

Lessons in Happiness

I’ve spent my life studying ‘the mechanics’ of happiness.  Such has been a deep dive into spirituality, philosophy, linguistics, behavioral sciences, food & nutrition, psychology, and design. In a nutshell, we’ve made happiness—or mental and emotional health—way...

Transformation

Transformation

I believe 100% that you cannot elevate your life and transform your body-mind-soul without God.  I also believe that without Christ, you do not have the power of all available to you and you will repeatedly face battles in life you cannot conquer yourself. As someone...

Camera A Camera B

  Here’s my takeaway:  don’t waste life.  Not one day.  You’re here on planet earth having an epic adventure.  Did we forget?  What is life?  An adventure?  A school?  Dust in the wind?  Hard to say.  This whole life-thing is quite a mystery.  But one day it will...

6.10.22 Absolutely Perfect

 22 Absolutely Perfect I was dying to wake up this morning. Isn’t that a bizarre phrase we’ve adopted?  I was dying to go to the gym!  Bizarre.  I lay there, semi-awake in the semi- dark, with light eeeking out from behind the crevices. Bold mountain sunshine would be...

In Deep Snow and Heavy Silence

3 28 22 I’m sitting here with God in an intoxicating silence like deep deep snow.  I smashed my index finger on my right hand in the car door last night while unloading my things from the trip.  It was so good to be home and Hello God…thank you for the sunshine, thank...

Rearrange & Get Creative

Recently my eyes changed, so I got new glasses. The world seems to be changing.  Very blurry.  Now what?  Can't buy glasses for that. So I rearranged my furniture.  Because you can do that.  Its an old trick in the book; we call it Feng Shui. And now I love this room...

Somwhere in the San Juan Islands. The events of this past year have pushed me deeper into the arms of God.  To the world it looks like I am hiding in a cave.  I am in a cave but not hiding, exploring.  I’ve left as much of the world behind as I can possibly manage so...

Welcome to the Truman Show

Welcome to the Truman Show

Good morning October 12, 2020 I woke with terrible back pain.  Yesterday I thought it was my sciatica returning.  Which would be weird because after 4 years of near constant pain, it went away overnight.  Literally, about 7 months ago, the pain was just gone, never to...

It.  Occurs. To. Me. Emily Dickenson’s well-loved poem portrays the tension felt between the desire to be Somebody along with the relief that we are Nobody. "I'm Nobody, who are you?Are you Nobody Too?Then there's a pair of us--don’t tell!They'd banish us, you know....

Peace Be With You

Peace Be With You

I’ve learned over and over that effort without peace and a sense of purpose is driven madness. You are a chicken with your head cut off and this leads to a lifeless pursuit of tasks.

Spec of Golden Light

It’s not like I don’t have a lot to do today.  It’s just that I want to sit here and cry.  It’s life back to normal for everyone else.  I barely knew her, and I can’t organize myself to put clothes on. I have plenty of work to do—a full 10 hours.  I have errands to...
