Journal Entry: Time

Summer is nearing its end. Windows are open. Cool breezes cleanse the air. I embrace the quiet and allow myself time to think. Time to renew my focus and refresh my intentions.

A Little Contrition May Be in Order

Dear Mother Nature, Hi! How are you? No! Wait! Don’t leave! Oh. Yes. ‘Tis me. Again. Uh huh. I know that our relationship has been, oh, a little fractious over the last few months. Yes, I admit it: I was being a bit whiny. Well, why not? I had had to deal with stinkbugs and […]

In My Next Life

Years ago, there was an exercise tape called “The Twenty Minute Workout”. I loved to sit and watch it. Then I discovered a wonderful little yoga studio and began studying with the best yogini ever.

Still workin’ at it…

I’ve been busy, kind of. Perhaps you’ve noticed a new “page” up there at the top of the blog? Yes, I’ve added the A-List, which is a short list of blogs that I’ve followed over the years.
