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.

I’ve been cleaning out lately. Deciding what is essential. Understanding why I hold onto things. Objects tied to happy memories, significant […]

Did You Feel That Today?

This is the first day that I felt the air change.

Waking up the house felt crisp.

Stepping outside the cool air invigorated me enough to inspire me to go for a walk.

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

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 […]

Art, Connection and Fighting My Ego

I am fighting with my ego. Again.
During what should have been a productive day in my studio, I decided to ramble on in my own mind about what defines art. I started piecing together snippets from different conversations with people I admire, creatively and personally. I am trying to make peace with this girl in […]

The Seduction of the Sun

Sometimes there is a beauty that just leaves me speechless. No words adequately express the stirring, the knowing, in a place so deep within me that, for a brief moment, I feel certain of my connection to the whole.

This afternoon the sun flirts with me. The leaves dance so that the sun shimmers, touching my […]

Back To School

The beginning of this new school year is having to pry each of my fingers off of my firm and phantasmal grip on summer. My baby goes back to school this week. Ok, he’s not a baby. He is starting 4th grade, but when I look into those eyes I still see that beautiful baby […]

I Did It! Reflections on the Design Challenge

I Did It! Reflections on the Design Challenge

So, the last piece for my design challenge has been photographed. The last description has been written.

I love the feeling of knowing you have to do something, but not knowing why. The certainty you have that insists on action. The feeling of being swept along a current, conscious […]

“The wound is the place where the light enters you.” ~Rumi

Sometimes we hide our wounds. We feel shame. It’s hard to admit we are broken. But there is such beauty there. Let’s celebrate those broken places, the wounds, beautiful things happen there. Let the light in, be the […]
