How do you know when life is really happening?



  • From my hospital room I send you New Moon blessings and promise you the Moon posts (that I love to create so much) will resume soon. At least that’s the plan, so sit down darling, get comfy and join me on this journey, please. Isn’t it great? We aren’t doing this alone!!
  • My plan was to do my usual New Moon post, full of stories about my trip, bringing the sacred everywhere, and share travel altar tips. You’re gonna love that!
  • I’m setting my passionate artists’ finickiness aside to send this short message of love and gratitude out tonite. For fuck’s sake, I don’t even have wifi(!) tonight, and I am blogging by iphone. On strong drugs. Being careful not to sit on the drain tube that comes out of my left ass cheek. So much more to tell you!
  • Okay. Enough. Back to healing. Testing. Draining. Accepting. Breathing. Being grateful. Kissing you!
  • Talk to me. I love hearing from you. If you’re glad I’m back, in one piece. Now minus an exploded bit. If you’re happy I didn’t die, here or on the road. Leave a comment. And if you know someone who is just gonna zing with recognition, send this along. I can feel myself slipping back into marketing language after the break. But since marketing language is just about sharing what I know, with she who just craves to hear it, there’s never really a difference anyway. That’s the topic for another article. For now, good night beloved.

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. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

  1. Hey Sue!  I’m glad you didn’t die.  I’m glad you’re back (minus an exploded bit!).  And I’m looking forward to the full story of the exploded bit?!?  Sending you love and light and healing energy and radiant health.  xxx

  2. I am profoundly grateful that you are back and did not die – that this did not happen on the road.  Goodness!  Looking forward to hearing all your stories…  🙂

    • Thank you, and agreed — would have been so much more — on so many levels — if I was still on the road. Love you!

  3. Offering heaps of gratitude to the Divine that you are well, my friend. And I am SO EXCITED to hear more about your travels. The photos you posted along the way have whetted my appetite. Lots of love and hugs, xoxox bzzzz

    • Jaina Bee, now that I find myself back in the hospital today, I am upheld amster blessed by your loving words. Thank you, sister.

  4. Welcome home Sue, so sorry that you’re back in hospital, immensely glad you’re alive & kicking and still positive to boot!! May your recovery be fast and freeing.. much love  <3
