On this Christmas eve, I'm immersed in the warmth and humor of my parents and sister. I've been clearing so much of what is no longer valid or healthy in my life. With my body almost fully healed and a newer, more expanded vision of my purpose and goals, I’m... Continue reading

The pups love this stuffed lamb. I love how Mona's nose is poking through in the last photo. They keep me entertained throughout the day. I saw this light and couldn't resist snapping away at the madness that happens between these two. As I type this, Mona is sprawled out... Continue reading

doc's initials Today, I had a lumpectomy. A decision that I was waiting to decide for itself. A growth that just kept growing. I kept sending it to the light, to the gods, to the guides, to the stars, to someone that knew more than I did about what is... Continue reading

No, really. I've been absent here and everywhere. Slowly healing after carbon monoxide exposure (oops!) and a respiratory something-or-other (yes, it's medical name) that just doesn't want to go away. There were friends visiting and workshops happening the past few weeks... Playing catch-up... There was some Halloween fun... I stole... Continue reading
