The Practice of Bowing

While Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back 🤣 my goal is to bring bowing back. Bowing, as in the practice of honoring the light in each person we meet, the lessons for growth into goodness in every experience, the wisdom from hurts and failures, and the happiness from gifts and successes. Truly, in many ways I believe the … Continue reading The Practice of Bowing

Who am I Really? A Journey of Me to We to Everyone

The most devastating losses in my life (marital separation, divorce, nearly dying, loss of career, divorce #2 …) turned into my biggest gains. Each time I surrender, the more alive I become. The less I identify as “me”, the more truly me I am. As cryptic, woo-woo, and Jesus-like as those may sound, over and … Continue reading Who am I Really? A Journey of Me to We to Everyone

Living into Purpose and Fullness

One of the interesting side effects from my accident and visual disability is that before I plummeted off a cliff, I NEVER had to think about where the car was parked, worry about getting lost on a run in an unfamiliar locale, or fret about navigating a theme park. My body just knew where to go. … Continue reading Living into Purpose and Fullness

Being Awestruck Over How Incredible It is to Be Alive

With my 46th birthday just around the corner (Saturday!), looking back I can say one of the best parts about getting older is feeling evermore permission to be freely and fully my quirky and unique self! In the movie Last Christmas, a character observes: "There's no such thing as normal. It's a stupid word. Does a … Continue reading Being Awestruck Over How Incredible It is to Be Alive

Our Darkest Dark Reveals Our Brightest Light

Darkness. What’s your relationship with it? As we approach the literal darkest day of the year, I’m reminded going fully INTO my metaphorical darkness is the path to my brightest lightness. It’s no mistake that Christmas, a celebration of Light, was originally on the winter solstice. It took truly facing the depths of my porn addiction, for … Continue reading Our Darkest Dark Reveals Our Brightest Light

Giving the Gift of YOU

The quality of my life is interconnected with the nature of what I devote myself to. Each day we give our time, energy, and attention to/for something. In other words, moment-by-moment we literally give the gift of our lives away.The only question is for what? Whether I'm aware of it or not, on the daily my thoughts and … Continue reading Giving the Gift of YOU

Sing at the Top of Your Lungs!

When I make dinner I listen to music, while dancing and singing (loudly). In fact, not long ago I was especially into a song, and mid-chorus saw a lady walking by outside give me an "are you possessed?" look. Whether you can carry a tune or not, there's something powerful and healing about singing at the … Continue reading Sing at the Top of Your Lungs!

Glowing in Grace

As much as I crave more of Will Farell on the cowbell, what I think we could really use more of these days is GRACE. Inspired by the immortal words of U2, I'd say: Grace finds the goodness in everything and everyone. Grace transforms ugly into beauty. Grace gently carries the burdens, wrongs, and shame … Continue reading Glowing in Grace

Just Say No to Division, and YES to Unity

If anyone asked me for voting advice, I’d say vote humans not robots. Seriously! You know The Terminator, The Matrix, and other movies where the machines take over? Great entertainment, but scary reality, right? The bad news, though, is in many ways they clandestinely already have! Think about it: Why do the news and social media bombard us … Continue reading Just Say No to Division, and YES to Unity
