A goose-bumpy story

Here's how it looked when I was done - professional on the left, qualities in the middle, personal on the right.

Hi everyone!  It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve met here…more about that at the end of the post.

But first…I HAVE to share with you this AMAZING experience I had last week.  Seriously…Mind…Blowing…

I spent last week in a beautiful town on the coast of Maine.  Being by the waves crashing against the rocks …

I am more than my body


Things have been going well.  Quite well, in fact.  I’ve been doing interviews for my book and having a FABULOUS time!  I’ve been getting tons of valuable support from my colleagues.  I’ve been feeling really good about the work that I’m doing.  I’ve been reading a lot and making lots of plans.

And you know …

Whose voice are you listening to?


Four weeks ago, I gave myself the gift of taking a blog vacation.  My attitude toward seeing and celebrating miracles hadn’t changed, but my attitude toward sitting down and writing several times a week had – I was feeling tired and uninspired and like I was working too hard for not enough joy.  So I …

Practicing what I preach

Over the last few weeks, you may have noticed that my posts have become somewhat sporadic.  There have been logistical reasons for that, but there’s also another truth…

The unicorn


Tonight I discovered a true unicorn that makes me super happy – a gluten-free, dairy-free burrito that’s actually YUMMY!  And not only that, the flavor I had comes with its own little packet of guacamole. 

I just had to share…

It’s the EVOL burrito and it was quite delicious.

My gateway drug

chocolate cherry

Today marks four months that I have been off sugar, wheat, potato, and dairy products!!!!  When I started down this road on January 2, I was feeling generally sluggish, tired, and cranky far too often for my liking. I wasn’t thinking ahead to how long it would last.  I just knew that I needed to …

Straight, lesbian, in between – it’s just plumbing

In honor of the United States Supreme Court considering same-sex marriage and all of the conversation that has generated this week, I’ve decided to bring back this piece that I posted two years ago.

Originally titled “The Miracle of Fluidity”
In an odd bit of serendipity, I noticed that I wrote this …
