• Mid November Life Keeps Getting Better

    Today is 11/11. That means it's time to WAKE UP! The universe is trying to get through to us. I also happened to see 11:11 on the clock this morning. I laughed when I saw it. When I see 11:11, I feel like I’m being cared for by something much bigger than myself. I feel safe. I feel like the universe is trying to tell me I'm on the right track. I’m on the cusp of a major world-view change. And yet, it's not a change at all. It's who I really am. It's what I believe life is about and for. I jus…

  • Two Days Wrong!

    “`What day of the month is it?' he said, turning to Alice: he had taken his watch out of his pocket, and was looking at it uneasily, shaking it every now and then, and holding it to his ear. Alice considered a little, and then said `The fourth.' `Two days wrong!' sighed the Hatter. `I told you butter wouldn't suit the works!' he added looking angrily at the March Hare. `It was the best butter,' the March Hare meekly replied.” I want to write a blog on Wednesdays but sometimes things happen that …

  • Don't Let the Fire Die

    I didn’t write a blog last week or the week before, because I was frankly devastated by the attack on the Capitol by the Trump supporters. I’ve been in that stately building quite a few times because I lived near DC and my brother worked at the Library of Congress. I was truly shocked and saddened. The day that all of this was going on, I actually looked up news channels and watched some of it online. I found it disturbing and sickening but mostly just sad. I cried all day that day. But I don’…

  • The Nevermore Raven

    Christmas was painful for me this year. I am keenly aware of my aloneness. I'm alone because I choose to be. But that didn't stop it from being excruciating for me this year. Like Poe’s narrator in The Raven, I’m caught between wanting to remember and wanting to forget. On Christmas day I was unusually sad. I kept remembering being a mom to small children and how rewarding and joyful that was for me. I was always so in love with my kids. It was natural for me to endeavor to make their lives m…

  • Darkness - Longest night

    “To Know the Dark" "To go in the dark with a light is to know the light. To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight, and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings, and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.” ~ Wendell Berry These last couple of weeks have had a lot of grief in them for me. November 8th marks 4 years since my dearest brother, John died. November 13 would have been my son's 34th birthday had he not died on December 20th, the day before yesterday, 7 years ago. These anniversari…
