Eruptions From My Soul

Last week I wrote about the empty spot I was feeling inside me. The one that was created when my book was released, like a recently vacated womb. I didn’t plan on writing about that. That post started out as something entirely different. But then I felt it. The way my writing shifted – first coming from my head, then moving further down inside me, […]

Laying Hands on The Empty Spot

Last week I needed a lifeline. I got one (thankfully) when I reached out to a good friend. Here’s what was going on: My book, Unscripted: A Woman’s Living Prayer, finally came out on Amazon on December 30th, just getting in under the wire before a new year started. I say “finally”, because it felt like I had worked and waited an eternity for that moment. I […]

Catching & Releasing My Shame

I’m going to tell you a story I could easily not tell. It’s a rather ugly story that reveals an unsavory part of my character. But I’ve decided to share it with you because here’s one thing I’ve learned over the last year: Shame can’t live outside me.  Holding onto it by keeping it inside me not only sours my joy, limits my expansiveness, and dampens my […]

I am a huge fan of words. I have often said that my idea of heaven is being alone in a bookstore with no sense of time, just being able to roam endlessly among all those words. Books are my happy worm holes. I have been known to spend days – weeks, sometimes months – with my face winced in something akin to physical pain […]

Yes, And…

Earlier this summer I walked into a room at the Kripalu retreat center in the Berkshires and thought, “Oh shit…I don’t belong here.” One look around at the 108 women that had gathered for the REVEAL immersion weekend – an experience curated and led by Meggan Watterson that invited women to “embody the divine feminine” – and I broke out in a cold sweat, feeling like […]

Life In The Arena

My son and I sat on the couch last night and looked at the proof for the cover of my book. He nodded, and then got really quiet. I asked him why. “I’m afraid you’re going to get bullied.” I was speechless. His one comment touched on two raw nerves of mine: 1) the intense vulnerability I am feeling in releasing this book into the […]

The past two weeks have been hard. I’ve officially decided that the beginning of September is an annual shit storm no matter how I try and slice it. The air was sticky and suffocating. The noise and chaos of the kids returning to school reached high decibels and felt like it came out of nowhere – fast – even though we knew it was coming. We were bombarded with paperwork […]
