Telling the truth

Telling the truth

Three of my girlfriends and I road-tripped to Santa Fe a couple of weekends ago, and I brought back something unexpected–a truer version of myself. The desert-y landscape of New Mexico has always felt healing. Although Santa Fe is technically not high desert (it’s semi-arid steppe) there is an openness to the land and sky there that seduces me. It feels vast and vulnerable at the same time, like a dancing woman slowly removing her clothing. Like the truth. Our truth-telling began before we left Colorado. At a lunch stop in Pueblo, for some reason we got into a conversation […]

Trains, cake & manifestation

Trains, cake & manifestation

Trains and cake. These two simple things were my granddaughter’s heart’s desire on her third birthday last weekend. Of course, there were birthday presents, family members, beach play and singing, but those seemed to be extras in her opinion. Her wish was streamlined: a train ride and a piece of birthday cake.

Growing up, I was rewarded for being “good.” I earned good grades, was involved in school activities, […]

Laughing with the goats

Laughing with the goats

Three days after the full moon in Capricorn I found myself in a goat yoga class. Are you getting the synchronicity here? Capricorn…sign of the sea goat? Goats were just what I needed. I’d been feeling a bit fragmented and scattered after some big waves of emotion that came up during the eclipse season that preceded the full moon. So this stabilizing Capricorn energy–like a goat with all four feet on the ground–was welcome medicine. That, and actual goats jumping on my back. And, above all, laughter. If you haven’t done goat yoga before, you can probably imagine that it’s […]
