Turn the page…

Today I’m finishing up a new writing project. I’m transforming my “Self Care Cards” deck into an updated version of helpful, healing messages so I’m sharing a blog I wrote last year about one of my favorite things – books. If you love to read, you’ll definitely want to watch the video I mention below. […]

Becoming a good creature

One morning this week I entered the bathroom where our new kittens were sleeping and my heart melted.  Here’s what I found: Tears filled my eyes as I felt a familiar love I haven’t experienced in a long time. It’s been nearly three years since we shared our home with Poupon, our first rescue, and […]

Is it time to say goodbye?

Last week I received an email from a longtime reader who wanted me to know she was unsubscribing because of my newsletter about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was polite. She expressed appreciation for all the years of support my words had provided. And she said goodbye without explanation, just that it was time to “part […]

Becoming notorious

In life, there are some people who, by their presence and character, inspire us to be better human beings. They model what it means to live with integrity, to speak the truth with humility and grace, and to take a stand for others not because it gets them anything, but because it’s simply the right […]

A curator of beauty

I woke at sunrise to find mist floating above the reservoir behind our home. Translucent clouds drifting over steel gray water, slowly vanishing in the rising light. It’s moments like this that make life bearable these days. Beauty in the middle of madness. Each day I do my best to find moments of amazement wherever […]

A little laughter and sweetness

I promise not to convert this blog to weekly kitten stories, photos, and videos, but since it’s Labor Day weekend here in the states and I’m enjoying the last bits of summer, I thought I’d share a photo and video of our new furry kids. The ginger cat is the sweetest little boy we’ve named […]

Exciting News!

Today’s a big day for our family. Nearly three years after losing our beloved cat, Poupon, Michael and I have rescued two kittens from our local no-kill shelter, Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society. I’m excited and a little nervous, but ready to add the joy and love that animals offer back into our lives again. […]

A helping hand to calm anxiety and stress

This week I’m taking a vacation from the blog and thought I’d share a Facebook Live event I did in late March to help you deal with the anxiety and stress of a changing world.  During the session I offered: ~*~ A way to instantly calm your body to help reduce stress and anxiety. ~*~ […]

Stay off the crazy train!

There’s nothing like a mandate to stay in one place to help us see how neurotic the mind can be. These days, as I spend most of my time at home, I’ve made it a practice to carefully watch my thoughts. The goal is to stay in present-moment time as much as possible because it’s […]

The great opening

This afternoon, after doing a bit of work and making pesto from basil in the garden, I was washing up at the kitchen sink when a wave of anxiety hit. I felt myself brace at the familiar, unpleasant feeling. It’s been happening on and off for a while now. Out of nowhere, a low rumbling […]
