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 […]

The new normal

Standing at the kitchen window, I look up to find a coyote peeking out from behind the stone wall that forms a border between the woods and our home. It’s my first time seeing one this summer and, as I watch him scope out the territory looking for a meal, I feel grateful to have […]

The art of homeschooling you

Over the last few months, as the pandemic continues to dramatically change the way we live, I’ve been using this time to develop new skills, build new habits, and homeschool myself in topics of interest like the science of consciousness, physics, and cooking. This week, I wanted to share my enthusiasm for learning by telling […]

You’re invited to steal this

Last night I went to bed feeling anxious for the world. This morning, I woke remembering who I am. I sat up, opened my journal to the last page, and read a note I wrote to myself a few months ago. Please feel free to steal this. Sweetheart, When you feel hopeless, frightened, or like […]

How to be a good human

As the pandemic picks up steam in some parts of the country and we continue with restrictions, it seems we’re being invited to make a relationship with uncertainty whether we want to or not. As a result, I’ve made the decision to cancel our October retreat and have reserved new dates for next year – […]

Interdependence Day

This morning I made the mistake of looking at the news. I was sitting in the living room, enjoying a cup of tea when I turned on the TV to see what was happening in the world. It only took a minute before I clicked the off button and left the room. Like many of […]
