W.O.R.D.S.: A new project

Can I tell you how much I miss blogging? When I began this strange - as I saw it at the time - new form of writing over five years ago, I was quickly (as in, instantly) hooked. I loved the freedom of my own forum, the informality, the brevity, and above all, that lovely … Continue reading W.O.R.D.S.: A new project

Authentic Voice Project: C is for Christ

I realized with discomfort that my last Authentic Voice Project post was in itself Inauthentic. I chose a safe word to explore. I shied away from tackling a true "trigger" word. I again silenced my voice out of fear of rocking the boat. I realized the hypocrisy of this and now I must fix it … Continue reading Authentic Voice Project: C is for Christ

Every year when turkey-leftover soup is still very much on the menu and I find myself in a store singing along with some ear-gnawing song, I cringe with self-derision.

Trust the process, pt 5 (Everything is connected, 1)

Back in May I wrote in this post, Steppingstones to a new life, about how different paths of my life had suddenly come together at juncture, namely, grad school. I was shocked and gob-smacked how the Universe, Serendipity and Synchronicity got together presented me with this and amazing and timely opportunity. But these three tricksters … Continue reading Trust the process, pt 5 (Everything is connected, 1)

Steppingstones to a new life

Yesterday morning in my journal I wrote: I am blessed with abundance. I am blessed with the answer. I am a magnet to all the resources I need. What is the answer? I need to know what path to go down today. This morning I wrote: Oh, lawd! I feel like a puzzle piece just … Continue reading Steppingstones to a new life
