welcome to my blog

My blog is an imperfect interaction with myself and others. It’s a place that allows me to engage in life as deeply as needed, which can be difficult to do otherwise. Expect to find words about people, travels and troubles, stories that take you high and stories that take you deep. Stories that make you laugh, cry, and think. Expect books, wellness, and life in the edge. Expect to find value in day-to-day stuff. My blog is meant for those who dare to breathe in life, the present, the divine. Beneath and beyond that, what you discover is up to you.

About the Blogger

I live an unpredictable good life. Simple, soulful, and a bit edgy. Just like I like.

And I like much.

Laughing and breathing, afternoon naps, Reese’s and beaches. Bare feet. Bare truth. Bare something.

I often get lost in meaningful books. I often find meaning in getting lost.

I eat Brussels sprouts and spinach. I walk, bike, and do yoga. I pray to lighten my load and I pray for guidance along my way. My sacred moments include vulnerability, stumbles, and imperfection, as well as strength and dogged determination. I appreciate all kinds of people, all kinds of food and music, all kinds of places—both here and there.

For Whom I Blog

I write for those who travel within themselves and far beyond,
who face the known and what is in their control,
who face the unknown and what is out of their control.
I write for those who smile, laugh, and cry,
for those who are sensitive and vulnerable,
for those who give and receive.
I write for those who value this surprising amazing world,
its surprising amazing people, their surprising amazing selves.
Strong. Beautiful. Bold.
I write for you,
and I write for me.

Reconciling Left and Right, Right and Wrong

Proverbs 16:31 says, “Gray hair is a crown of glory…”  I smile in my silver-haired season when I read that verse. It is biblical. My crown of glory. But then Solomon, son of David, King of Israel, continues, “…it is attained along the path of righteousness.”  Seriously? I can’t just claim my gray as aContinue reading “Reconciling Left and Right, Right and Wrong”


(verb) to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination A friend sent me this word last week, a word she had stumbled upon quite serendipitiously. We are preparing for a short road trip, both of us knowing, yet not knowing, where and how we will be traveling, just knowing we need to. We’veContinue reading “Coddiwomple”

One Year Post-Relaunch Recap (career re-entry for women)

Winter Park Chamber of Commerce Relaunch Class 2 Graduates, April 30, 2019. *** Re·launch: a career re-entry program for professional women. I could give Relaunch a plug like a happy holiday letter, but this approach would not capture the full truth of this program. And it’s the full truth—that which includes the hard work and digging deep–thatContinue reading “One Year Post-Relaunch Recap (career re-entry for women)”

Dignity: worthy of honor

As we witness the closure of this season’s magnolia blossoms, I am reminded of one of my favorite movies, Steel Magnolias. The title borrows a term that means both femininity and fortitude, a depiction of its characters and of the word “Dignity,” meaning worthy of honor. I mention Steel Magnolias in my book in “ContemplationContinue reading “Dignity: worthy of honor”
