I am a process therapist; which means i am less invested in what you do what how you do it. When my clients ask me if they should quit a job, or break up with their girlfriend or leave their marriage. I tell them that i am less invested in... Continue reading

Her family came home and she looked at them strangely. After 10 days of being by herself, she felt her edges more. The part of her that defined where she ended and where they began. Just like the contrasting colors on her painting, they felt stark next to her. Totally... Continue reading

Raged at him last night. It's been a while. But somewhere between him admitting to the neuropsychologist that he was dysfunctional at home and calling himself a blob, just set off an alarm in me, disarming the part of me that always defended him.

Part of blogging for me is the spiritual practice meticulously documenting God's goodness to me. Something about spelling it out in words and... Continue reading

i was the second one to read for Natalie Goldberg, it took me 15 minutes for me to realize where i was amidst 30 other writers at the retreat. It's awful but you really can't tell who how good you are until you compare yourself with others. In a group... Continue reading

Here at the Natalie Goldberg Retreat, we do writing practice 10 times a day. Just like the Buddhist practice of sitting Zazen, it is like a meditation practice. You get a prompt the way you would a bell or a gong, you sit and write for 10-15 minutes and then... Continue reading
