February can be a brutal month. Bitterly cold, snowy, and dark. Today, we kicked off the month with temps in the 40s, and daylight as I left work. Grateful for both. Saying hello to so much this month... hello to... Continue reading

Dan & I spent an amazing week in Cabo. We lounged by the pool; hung out on the beach; went on a whale-watching cruise (saw whales & also learned that Dan gets VERY seasick); ate chips, guacamole, & fresh shrimp... Continue reading

I turned forty-five yesterday (THANK YOU for all the kind birthday wishes!!). I'll admit that while not a typical milestone birthday, this number feels weighty. The past couple of months have been an absolute blur, but I've had the number... Continue reading

Travel, the Landmark Forum, more travel, and general life seem to have kept me away from any reverb-ing for the past couple of weeks. So here's what feels relevant to catch up on... What was the low point of your... Continue reading

Kicking off this year's #reverb project in California (LA yesterday, SF today). I'll be following Yoga Freedom's prompts, and as always...will pick & choose those that resonate, bundle days when needed, and just generally do my own thing. (You can... Continue reading

It's an annual tradition of the beginning of November, I decide to send out Thanksgiving cards. Not a mass mailing, but a carefully curated lot that is both heartfelt & handmade. And then, moments before Thanksgiving, I sigh...accepting the... Continue reading

Confession - distance is not making the heart grow fonder when it comes to this blog. The longer that I'm away, the more difficult it is to come back. Is it relevant anymore - to my life, or anyone else's?... Continue reading

That supermoon, though. (image via Unsplash) We walked down to the river last night & said hello to the supermoon last night - such a spectacular sight! We said "Wow" over & over again - reminding me of Anne Lamott's... Continue reading

Yesterday was not my favorite. A combination of fatigue, general stress, & hormones conspired to make it a pretty rotten day. Conversations drifted down hard paths ("hard, like the table"...we say, nodding to my Aunt Betty's reminder that challenges don't... Continue reading

I had the best of intentions. For reals. I thought that I'd spend a lot of time this summer reading by river, reading on planes, reading at the gym....and I just, well, didn't. I finished a couple of the above... Continue reading

September started with a flurry of activity that left me a bit breathless. I'm still looking for Austin's car when I pull into the parking garage, and adjusting to the sometimes kid-free nest. Yesterday was really our first day without... Continue reading

I’m going to cut to the chase on this one: if I had written a book nearly 3 years ago when I divorced, this book would be its twin. During the build-up and the aftermath, I had countless conversations with... Continue reading
