4 years & 4 months

It has been 4 years and 4 months since the accident.  Mostly, I'm better. But sometimes, when it rains, or when I've been upright for more than 6 hours, I feel the pain. It can be a giant electrical bolt thru my brain without warning. Or, a giant, putting his fist in my head and… Continue reading 4 years & 4 months

Cracking wide open

Parting words from one of my wisest friends as I left for Bali, "open your heart, lead with it, be in your heart, this is what you need". I've been "in my head" so long, I could hardly contemplate what it means to open my heart. I'm kind, isn't that enough? I mean, I try… Continue reading Cracking wide open

5 items to add to your Facebook Feed

I use Facebook much differently than many people. The cool thing about FB is that it is smart and figures out what you look at, and brings more of that.  I used to pay attention to the drama of people I knew decades ago, or the endless pictures of kids (which I still do) but… Continue reading 5 items to add to your Facebook Feed

I've learned some valuable lessons, OK that's the understatement of the century. Each day is hard. It's hard to wake… Continue reading Be the light, find the magic

Outrageously Open

I just finished the most delicious new book.  Outrageous Openness, by Tosha Silver. You must stop everything and pick it up.  Audible or Reader version, either will work for this book, so download it, stop at a bookstore, whatever you must do. I attended the recent Hay House event "I Can Do It, Austin" and… Continue reading Outrageously Open

Farewell Love Letter

It's been awhile... Today I drive to Houston (in the hatchback so I can lay flat) so tomorrow I can fly to Durham, NC.  Friday will be my much anticipated visit with Dr. Grey at Duke Medical Center. This is my affirmation for the trip. Traveling alone. Trusting in the helpfulness of strangers along the… Continue reading Farewell Love Letter
