A Thanksgiving Gift For You!

I’ve been thinking lately about the collective sadness of the world. I have felt powerless in the midst of incomprehensible suffering. Maybe you have felt that too?

I have been inspired by stories of courage and hope and find myself wondering…what can I do?

As a mom I know I have the ability to create great […]

Burning Things

I’m watching the leaves fall today. Is it the act of letting go or being released? Each burst of wind brings an ephemeral dance, with the leaves, trees, air and other unseen elements at play.

{The fact that my thoughtful son suggested I walk in the opposite path of his bus stop so that I wouldn’t get hit […]

Give Me Something Good

I remember the morning they first caught my eye. Out of my window I thought I saw the tiniest bud on the dogwood. The next time I noticed, the tree was in full bloom, the white blooms so vibrant, life bursting forward. It was impossible to ignore the feeling of hope vibrating from hundreds of […]

Wonder, Wildness and the Pursuit of Making Things Happen

I have much to be grateful for this New Year. More than most people realize. More than I can even fully comprehend. I have a chance to start over. To gather up all of the dark corners, the rivers of panic and disbelief that once looked like fear and despair but are now courage and […]
