Let’s Talk… About Gun Control

I’ve heard so many stories in the past 2 weeks. Stories that I am honored to carry, and that you can go read in the comments of my blog. I’ve had amazing conversations with people I would have called “the enemy”, had I continued to react out of pain.

At this point, that means much more to me than being right. I don’t want to be on the “right” side of this discussion. I want to truly meet people and hear their heart. … More Let’s Talk… About Gun Control

An Announcement!

As you may have noticed, I’ve been using tarot cards in these posts for a few months now. My Osho Zen deck is something that is very inspiring to me, and has given me rich material for my personal spiritual path.

While there, I encountered regular thoughts of self-hatred, regular condemnation for the lack of yoga I … More Finding Ground

My honesty has felt terrifying even to me, so I stopped practicing writing it out publicly and went underground. … More Practice

Dust to Dust

I’m Still Here

It’s been awhile since I’ve written. Most of what I’ve written lately has been sporadic pennings on a journal page, or in my poetry notebook. I’ve zipped myself shut for the silliest of reasons, but one I could not avoid. A monster in my closet with a double-fisted threat that steals all my breath and … More I’m Still Here
