intent.

I don’t believe in setting New Year’s goals. I believe in intentions.  Goals stress me out. I’m such a list maker by nature, always looking for ways to improve or do more, that goals don’t serve me well.  They make me feel as though I’m not doing enough.  And what’s the point of that? I am […]

the search

My darlings, the turn towards darkness is upon us.  Daylight Savings Time ended, causing night fall to occur ridiculously early here in the Pacific NorthWest.  I adore my long sunshine filled days, and was sort of dreading the arrival of early nightfall.  It can be so dark.  So very dark.  There were a couple years when […]

autumn love

Sweet ones.  If I can offer one opportunity for “YES TO THIS” at this time of year, it is simple – go outside.  And I’m going to keep this post very simple.  Not much needs to be said. A week later, I am still reverberating from a weekend in the middle of the woods.  I […]
