It is Solstice time again!  How many times have I written about the Solstice? The absolute moment of greatest expansion between yin and yang energies and how much I love this time of year. This year is different. It feels different for me and it’s difficult to put my finger on it. This will be […]

It seems like forever ago that we left home. Our time away has been interesting. We had only a few days in Sydney before we headed over to Fiji. Exploring Australia has been left to the end of the trip. We were excited to check out Fiji and sad to leave Sydney. Sydney was a […]

Today marks the 2nd year anniversary of the first major surgery. What a ride it has been. Yesterday marked the first day of the rest of my new life with David.  Beginnings and endings. You can’t have one without the other. Today I celebrate the functioning of my body in a different way than I […]

Yesterday I walked the Edgewalk of the CN Tower with my son, Philip, harnessed in, hanging over the edge, 1168 feet above the ground, not hanging on to anything, apparently a world setting event.  This plan came from Christmas of 2012, where the boys and I gave gifts of time and Philip and I decided […]

What a ride this healing journey has been! The roller coaster that has steep inclines and unpredictable declines has started to have some sharp turns left to right. It really is the journey of life, all of our lives. How tight I hung on at first, afraid to open my eyes, afraid to let go, […]

Surrendering to my body has been the theme of the last week. The first couple of weeks, I wanted to do, do anything and everything that would speed up my recovery so I could get on with my life, until I realized THIS is my life, being present in my body, on this journey, right […]

Another week! What a ride! It’s been a bit of a roller coaster to say the least. 3 emergency visits and I’m now coming back. I have watched myself in this journey, realizing I heal, experience pain and illness the same way I experience life…zero to sixty, very brief transitional times. I’m on or off, […]

I remember the day back in the dead of winter when my dear friend Maryanne told me to block off a couple of dates in the spring as she had some surprises planned for my birthday.  She was giddy with excitement and I remember feeling how much I wanted to know what she was excited […]

I recently spent a glorious week living on a 60 foot catamaran diving night and day as we sailed through the Exumas.  It was my own rendition of Survivor, 9 people coming together as strangers, add in a crew of four from all over the world, all sharing close quarters, becoming more intimate as the […]

We know that where we are, this space we’re in isn’t working for us.  We know we are stuck and need to get out of this rut or this way of thinking.  We may even be conscious enough to know that these thoughts are delusional, completely out of touch with reality, stories we are spinning around in […]
