Momentous Moments

A Surprise Visit One butterfly out of season, one blossom at the end of a season, and my moment of noticing. How often do you notice the unexpected, glorious, beautiful moments that usually happen out of our awareness? Synchronicities often catch me by surprise, and when they do I pop into a different kind of […]

Abundance or Scarcity

The Season of Thanks Even though Thanksgiving is only practiced in the United States, there is an imbued desire among humans to express gratitude that comes in many forms like appreciation, admiration, awareness, and awe. So much in life is taken for granted and unnoticed in our bustling around day by day. Taking time to […]

Lunar New Year of the Wood Dragon fires up 2024

New Moon, Another Start I'm always attracted to dragons from The Never-ending Story, dreaming of riding my own dragon, and collecting dragon symbols, I believe in dragons! Odd for a grown up? Not for me.  Dragons symbolize power, wisdom, strength, and supernatural knowing although many traditions see them as the embodiment of chaos and untamed […]

First Full Moon, 2024

Tuning to phases of movement Even though I sense that 2024 will be a year like no other, a pivot choice point for who ‘we’ think we are, I have been relaxing into one of the most known cycles. The phases of the moon happen to be fully bright and wholesome today. Note the word […]

Aging as a problem or an asset?

Where you start matters. Cultural norms have warped the perspectives about aging. Pure and simple. Aided by the healthcare industrialized machine that has coopted the very notion of living and dying, society is numb to the idea that life is an unpredictable process that unfolds perfectly. Perceptions about time and space presume few allowances for […]

Remembering the In-Between It’s been 25 years since my husband passed. A long pause ensued. 9-11 brought the nation into a long pause. Unpresented shootings at schools brought more pauses. The corona virus marked a pause that lasted years. January 6 shocked our beloved America into still another pause. This year, 2023, has shaken me […]

Winter Solstice, Yule

The Magic of the Dark Winter Solstice brings the earliest sunset and shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, thus the longest night.  It is a sacred notation for me each year on December 21st.  I succumb to the darkness by creating a sacred space to honor the cycle of harvest completing while […]

The Starting Place Matters

No matter where you start. Whether it’s the starting line of a race, midfield, ahead or behind someone, the starting place matters. If competition is the beginning motivation with the aim to win or coming to common ground in a negotiation for all involved participants, the parameters are set into motion. The upheaval, dishevelment and […]

Pause and Reflect

The long view In my working career I came to a realization that when we measure everything only by ‘results’, there is not always satisfaction. Perseverance for the long view is beyond the culture of achievement. As two vengeful wars are blazing, hearts are cut open to compassion and hope. Vaclav Havel who served as […]

The Whole Town 'Looked Up'

Beautiful autumn sunshine on an auspicious day in the Texas hill country where the eclipse was visible to all. Unusual for our village to be collectively observing a cyclical pattern with interest and acclamations of awe. Gatherings at the public library, at Old Town on 7A, from decks and high places, we all looked up! […]
