About a Boy

February 21st, 2012
He told me while I was in the kitchen. Stirring something, soup maybe, onions or boiling potatoes, doesn’t matter really, whatever it was, my stirring soon became furious. “They told me I wasn’t really a boy today.” His 12yr old voice tried to remain detached. “Really” I replied, trying to match his detachment, while searching […]

Guilt Trip

February 7th, 2012
Have you ever bumped into it? You know, the wall?  The one between the mothers who work and the mothers who, well, work…. 
what can’t see tell the difference? Well, let me just point it out to you. One has a whole lot of guilt, and well, the other one has a whole lot of […]

No Laughing Matter

January 31st, 2012
I’m not the funny one. Oh I can be funny even without a glass of chardonnay in hand. But I’m not the funny one. Put in me in a crowd and I’m rather silly if you catch me in the right mood, yes I’m may have heard a chuckle or two in my presence. It’s […]
Do you ever catch your own reflection and think to yourself, “Is THAT what I look like? Is that how other people see me?” Scary isn’t it? The thought that is, that we can be so critical of ourselves. You leave the house for the night thinking you are looking okay, but die a thousand […]

The Acceptance Speech.

January 17th, 2012
In the unlikely event of receiving the “Mother of the Year Award”, I’ve been practicing my acceptance speech only to myself in hushed tones. I know it’s probably unnecessary but a girl needs her dreams.  Today I share this dream with you, it goes something like this- Firstly, I do NOT trip over my sexy […]
Live with “off the charts” optimism. Thrive in body, mind and spirit. Here’s to an awesome life for ALL, in ALL ways. May you stretch to claim your full potential as a whole person full of love, light and possibility. May your mind, body and spirit hum in unison like a barbershop trio, putting a […]
Dear God, In this one moment I recognize that there is within me a perfect Self: A Self that is not dysfunctional; A Self that is not weak but strong; That is not limited, but unlimited; That is not small, but huge; That is not in pain but in peace; That is not faithless and […]
This article is about creating vision boards. For more information on visions, see here. A vision board (also called a Treasure Map or a Visual Explorer or Creativity Collage) is typically a poster board on which you paste or collage images that you’ve torn out from various magazines. It’s simple. The idea behind this is that […]
While reading Ken Wilber’s A Sociable God, I learned something that helped me to understand a concept that I have struggled with for many years. I think this is so important that I want to share it with you, even if it doesn’t have much to do with gardening. However, it has everything to do […]

Learn To Forgive Yourself

November 25th, 2011
Carol Luebering, an author who wrote a lot about death and dying, said, Forgiveness is not something you do for someone else. It is something you do for yourself. An unforgiven injury binds you to a time and place someone else has chosen; it holds you trapped in a past moment and in old feelings. […]
This ad was posted on Craig’s List-  “Broken guitar for sale – no strings attached.” I’ve heard of giving with no strings attached, but strumming with no strings attached …… unless you’re playing Guitar Hero, it’s going to be a challenge. I’ve been thinking about what it means to live with no strings attached; giving […]
What often happens when we first start trying to live authentically is that we hear from the people, whom we’ve trained to believe we are always going to do what we’ve always done.  So, for example, if you’ve trained the boss to believe you can always get everything done yesterday with absolute perfection, then when […]
In 2001, I got sick with what the doctors initially thought was an acute viral infection. I have yet to recover. Diagnosis: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome—a little-understood illness that is as debilitating as its more justly named cousins that also compromise the immune and neurological systems. My case is particularly severe. I feel as if I […]

Coming Out.

September 27th, 2011
“I think she’s in here” Silence. “Nope, maybe upstairs then” Feet. Darn I sigh…..they find me. Is this normal? You know, to hide from your kids? I don’t mean the missing-in-action, type of hiding, where search parties scour muddy marshes. When everyone gives up looking, saying “oh well, we tried. She was nice enough, but […]
