Trust the Process

Well…I will have results back in a couple of days. (See previous post. ❤️💜💛🧡💚) Until then, I’m moving ahead and having some fun touching base with the first “Camp Marfa” participants. The program is turning into something magical…a space and time for people to simply breathe, be, unravel, experience nature, feel joy, go inward, go […]

Super Powers

I’ve been spending some time with this girl lately. I found this photo of her…a photo taken around 1969, at her best friend’s house. She was 9 years old then. There was a lot going on. Her mom was in her last days of alcoholism and her big sister…the one who took care of her […]

Camp Marfa

“The best antidote I have found is to yearn for something. As long as you yearn, you can’t congeal. There is a forward motion to yearning.” ~Gail Godwin Every so often I feel unsettled. Not the obvious unsettled, but the deeper kind. A yearning, a restlessness, a something’s-going-on-here-and-I’m-not-quite-sure-what-it-is. This past year has been a year […]

Roots and Wings

How you know your children are grown ups: (These are meant to be humorous, but the more I get into it, the more I realize I’m not really joking. ❤️🧡💛💚💜) 1. When they don’t call for a few days, (instead of feeling dread) you feel pride in knowing they are navigating life well…all on their […]

All Hands On Deck

Hey. I see you and want you to know that it’s times like these…we need to take extra care of ourselves. We are the feelers. The empaths…the “sensitive” ones. Begin with time alone. Even if you have kids and a family. Schedule time alone. Express yourself artistically. Move your body. Meditate. Go out of your […]

Safe Places

Is there an antonym for inspiration? Because today’s post, unfortunately is whatever that is. So if you don’t want to read this, don’t. I respect that. We are all just trying to make sense. Last night my kids and I established a safe-go-to-place should any natural or unnatural disasters lead to our need to find […]

I Am Not Broken

This past year I’ve done a lot of research…on myself. I’ve learned a lot. 1. I am not broken. I never have been, never will be. I’ve had isht happen, but that doesn’t mean I’m broken. Broken to describe a human being is a word used by people who are afraid of coloring outside the […]

Tangerine Skies

I don’t have anything to share except how grateful I am for coffee first thing in the morning, the ability to snack throughout the day, and the cool-almost-psychedelic dream I had while under anesthesia today. I woke up and cried for a good ten minutes. The nurse told me that a lot of people cried […]

Key to Your Heart

I thought it was about time to purge my keychain of old keys. These three will soon be in the trash. The psychedelic blue one was the key to my first tiny apartment after my kids were out on their own. The yellow butterfly one was to my son’s duplex on Pecan Avenue. And the […]

A Mama’s Farewell

I just left my girl at airport security. She is off to spend some time with her big brother in NYC. There is so much I wanna say…like how much it fills my heart to know that my two children love spending time together; Or how I believe in her right now. Or that I […]
