personal reflection

Why is it so hard to be a beginner?

As a mama, I have the most unique privilege to witness my son’s firsts. Witnessing a tiny human learn to be in his body from crawling to standing to walking and now running almost as fast as his parents – it’s nothing short of remarkable. Now, I get to witness the first processing of ideas[…]

My creative energy is going somewhere that it’s never been before. A new, nourishing, dark and wildly mysterious place holds all my creativity these days. Specifically, my creative energy has been staying in my womb to nourish a new life. I’m pregnant with my first babe! As I write this, I am well into the[…]

Important relationships were appearing in my life like relation-shits (as my dear friend Jana Kellam teaches), several of my mechanical tools broke within 24 hours, and I was fearful and stressed about all the details of my life.

As February ends, I reflect

February dances into March, with a sweet southern snowstorm to grace our presence. As I write this note, I have my accounting software open on my computer (tax season is here, oh my!).

A love affair

This love affair like all others you know. Inspecting all the smallest aspects that you love about your love… Being love struck and forgetting about other priorities… Lots of private time to out what your chemistry is like… But, here’s the one part that may be different than all other love affairs you’ve experienced.
