I gaze, I wonder.

Monday January 15, 2018 I gaze, I wonder. As a little part of my soul Cries, another part Celebrates. Celebrates a time that once Was, and now has past. Will I go on living my life Present, past, and future Or will I learn to live more fully In the now To become more alive […]

Lost and found.

Hidden while shown. Aimless with purpose. Calm while anxious. Cerebral and intense. In an unfamiliar land, I don’t hear my home tongue. The sights and sounds overwhelm my senses. Contributing to a simultaneous state of confusion. Alertness. –stop– wandering– where did I go? Confusion endurance. A goal. Mixed media. Art performance. Teach. Math identity. Winter. […]

Facing fears.

Facing fears. September 26, 2017   As a writer, one of my biggest fears is rejection. It is human nature to hold in our hearts a longing for acceptance. This inner drive to be seen and heard is in some ways at odds with the nature of publishing.   Here, in my free space to […]

Letting go to grow.

Letting go to grow. September 21, 2017   I pause in my stream of writing to gaze out the window. The shimmying tree caught my eye, And now I am the watcher of my experience. Being in balance with doing.   A single leaf let go from its tether to the branch. Now at rest […]

Perfect amidst imperfection.

Perfect amidst imperfection. Written August 9, 2017   Sometimes the absence of something is the trigger to realize it is essential to our way of life. Writing is like that for me. Academic writing, free writing, journal writing, blog writing, sketching, or some other form of creative expression through dance, yoga, music, art. From this […]

I see, I feel.

I see, I feel. I see the shifting seasons before my eyes. As the leaves fall from branches willing to let go. I feel it in my bones. As the breeze calms through the open sills.   My progress today helps me plan for tomorrow. I give myself time to be in it. To get […]

Authentic self.

I’m learning to live more true to myself. This means letting go of judgement, of fear, of resentment, of criticism to the point of stagnation. In an ongoing healing journey, I am coming home to myself in the sense of living from a place of truth. My intention is to live, to fully live, without […]

Gratitude first. 

I have a habit of recounting all the “have nots” and “should haves” and “if onlys.”  These leave me in a place of trapped emotion and regret. Instead, I seek to cultivate gratitude. Let’s take an example from writing. As I reflected upon the day I started to tell myself a story – “I did […]

Fullness.

With a greater sense of awareness, I am learning to feel full. Fullness to me means completeness, happiness, and success. Success in this case is not measured by worldly accomplishments, gold stars, or publications, but rather by doing what I love. Doing what I love has taken great time, attention, and awareness to cultivate. It takes dedication, […]

Share your passion.

If you know me, or have met me, you likely know that I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I’ve recently been told that my 4 year old son does the same, for which I am proud. Being in tune to your emotions and feelings should be celebrated regardless of age, gender, status, etc. This […]
