Doing some project planning, I looked at my upcoming events and YIKES! is there a lot happening. Events and classes to facilitate; projects to develop, self-care practices to practice... It's joyous tangle of quiet creativity and sharing what I've created with people. I both LOVE and DREAD when my work finds this rhythm. My multipotentialed self is … Continue reading Being an HSP, multipotentialed entrepreneur
So many people responded when I published this in my newsletter this morning that it feels important to share it more widely. So, from my heart to yours... With devastation of all kinds in so many places around the world, you're probably overflowing with advice about how to help or where to give. Me too. But … Continue reading Please. Don’t look away.
I posted this on Facebook on the day an extended family visit ended: Looking forward to a quiet day restoring my home to its usual energy of semi-messy sacred space. I love seeing my family. And, I need the rhythm of everyday tasks to recover my center after so much go-go-go. There are poems … Continue reading You can love them and still want them to leave….

One of the things I also love about us is that we face similar challenges. Like the challenge of not believing … Continue reading What I love about you and me.

Once upon a time, there was a shy little girl with a timid little voice who never, never told people what she was feeling from the world around her. It felt dangerous to let people know what she was observing, you see. So, she silently blended in, laying in the waving grasses, watching worlds unfold: insect and seed, … Continue reading How an HSP found the courage to speak out
So, when " the unknown" spoke up during my meditation I was confused and a little startled. Really? I was even more surprised to learn that the unknown can be an ally. "Unknown" is a presence. A beingness. Yes! Not surprisingly, the "Unknown" is a presence of few words, but I'll describe the images and … Continue reading Making friends with the unknown
