It’s my birthday today, another year in the dance around the Sun.

A good time to express some gratitude, right?

I am grateful for dark chocolate.

I am grateful for these hands that work, for these eyes that see, for these ears that hear.

I am grateful for joy whenever and however it comes.

I am grateful for belly laughs and every smile.

I am grateful for this warm and safe home.

I am grateful for every moment of mindful movement and breath.

I am grateful for having lived to live this day.

The journey Home.



I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
