I take our dog Biscuits out about 20 times a week, which is fine by me as I use the time to both enjoy fresh air and play Words with Friends. The other day though, a voice whispered, "don't play. Just be." So, with the cold wind blowing and rain falling steadily, that's what I … Continue reading Awe Makes Awesome
At the first yoga class I taught this year I said 2020 was going to be awesome because we'd be able to see things clearly. 🤣 While "awful" is likely a more apt descriptor, it occurs to me we are seeing more accurately than ever before. There's something about things falling apart that knocks sense into us! I know … Continue reading Revolutionary Love: We’re Just Getting Started

I’ve been Christian my whole life and grew up with a good bit of obligation, “should”, and “ought to” when it came to my faith, so for a good bit of time I prayed because I was supposed to. God expected us to pray, so I did. Yet, it was often … Continue reading Why Pray? Relationship.
I don't remember ever believing in Santa Claus, so, after I had a daughter it didn't occur to me to make him a part of her Christmas. Yet, way back when she was still only four, we did Christmas morning with my sister, brother-in-law, and nephews. Blessedly, they were all about the Claus magic, meaning … Continue reading Meditation on “Believing” in Santa Claus: Seeing and Living Thru the Eyes of Imagination
That solar eclipse was a pretty crazy and awe inspiring thing, don't you think? The crossing of two celestial orbs brought dips in temperature, stillness in nature, and a sense of wonder to many people. Do you want to know a secret though? I'm convinced "eclipses" are present for you and I ALL the time. … Continue reading Meditation on Seeing the “Solar Eclipses” Around Us ALL the Time: Living With/From Awe
