pausing to remember

When people have asked me the standard Back To School question, “How was your summer?” I’ve responded mostly with the only answer that seems sufficient.

Valentines Day

I woke up today and realized Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  I probably should have noticed it was coming a bit sooner.  But I didn’t, and I’m not going to worry about it.  Instead, I’m going to treat myself this year.  Nothing extravagant, nothing remarkable.  Simply this:  I’m going to write a love letter.  To […]

seasons.

Little by little I am learning to trust the cycles, the seasons, of my life.  As I get older I am beginning to notice life moves along in ebbs in flows, in all facets, all the time.  Somewhere inside myself I had this knowledge and could sense it, but only sort of.  It is only […]

early musings.

Beware. This post is just musings.  Thoughts that have been running through my mind off and on lately. Someone very near and dear is pregnant. Early pregnant. Pre 12 weeks pregnant. When she told me, I wanted to jump for joy and start the celebrations.  Privately, I did.  I sent her a card with the […]

“hope and stillness”

“Hope and Stillness.  Hope and Stillness for three full breaths.”  That is what I heard my yoga teacher say this morning.  And that phrase felt so natural to my heart – it took a couple seconds for my brain to register what was actually said… “Hold in stillness.  Hold in stillness for three full breaths.”  […]

retreat.

Hello dear ones. Today I have the joy of writing after a soul-altering, heart-stopping, joy-inducing, love-filled, spirit-nourished experience.  I went on a retreat. A yoga retreat. A retreat to the mountains of Eastern Washington. I needed it. I didn’t know how badly I had needed it until I got there.  Oh. My. Soul. I needed […]
