Today, a tall beautiful curly-haired goddess approached me after yoga class and told me that she read my blog. And has been reading for awhile. I can't even begin to tell you the thrill I felt, knowing that she read my words.

As I watched them settling down on their mats, I was filled with a deep feeling of respect for their presence in that room.Read More
This year was full of activity, surprises, disappointments, illness, love, cookies and so much more. I caught myself yesterday saying "2017 kicked my ass..." and as I said it something didn't quite ring true. Yes, I often felt like my proverbial ass was handed to me this year. Obstacles were put in my path that I wasn't prepared to handle, I saw some relationships come and go, I felt deep darkness at times.

Some lies hurt so badly, I can't even face them. Why is telling the truth so difficult sometimes?Read More
