Secrets and Silence

May 1, 2013

Want to know when it’s awesome to have a blog? When you are scared and uncertain and searching outside yourself for answers, and as a result, both your words and your soul just keep pouring out of you. Then it isn’t easy, per se, but at least when you sit down to write, words come. [...]

The Ease With Which I Lean Toward the Opposite

April 23, 2013

If I could give a standing ovation to anything I would give one to this! One of the most poignant things I’ve seen in a long time. His way with words is masterful. {applause!} {applause!} … {applause!} I’m so glad to have found “new mirrors” in my life.

On Sighing & Flying

October 4, 2012

A few weeks ago, I was supposed to be in Paris. But that plan was thwarted. So, I went slow dancing with the Sky, instead. I opened mySelf up wide and let altitude and breeze slowly stroke through me. I flew right up into the Sky’s welcoming, wind-swept arms and saw my own Self reflected [...]

On Things We Can’t Capture …

September 28, 2012

In the darkness of this morning, I saw a flicker of loveliness. For the briefest of fleeting moments, the boundaries between worlds … relaxed.

Soul Shifts & Socket Wrenches

September 4, 2012

Today = me + a power drill. Gangster style. {Aww, yea!} Used the socket wrench, too. A lot. {Ask me how much I loved it.} Built some backyard furniture. Then, I cooked another dazzling meal. And did some double-boiling. B/c I’m The Little Apron That Could. Then wine + funniness + sharing stories of every [...]

About a year ago I saw this image for the first time; one of many enchanting photographs captured as part of The Ballerina Project.

On Wind and Wandering

August 12, 2012

Today I went out in search of “small adventures”. I drove all over Central FL: up, down and back around. Nearly 4 hours in the car, total, stopping at two local places I’ve never been before. Unimpressed with both, my spirit finally pulled me back to the place I promised recently to visit again. I [...]

What Clouds Know

August 4, 2012

I took a day off and went to the beach yesterday. It was the first time I’ve been to the beach in over a year. The last time I was there was the day my divorce was finalized. I actually missed the “it’s official” 503 courtroom declaration because I’d been delayed going through courthouse security that [...]

On Other Ways To Get There

August 2, 2012

Last night I dreamed I was in another country wandering the streets of some beautiful place. It looked a bit like I imagine Brussels would be. (As if I would remotely know.) In the dream I had been there a week and as I was getting ready to leave, I commented to a friend that [...]

Fluttering and Such

June 29, 2012

This is it. It’s time to go. I have packed up all of my worldly possessions. Every belonging and every memory that I hold dear. All the rest, I have gladly let go. Moving day is here. A bittersweet goodbye. And then … a bright new beginning. The last 60 days, since this unexpected move [...]
