I Live in an Eagle Sanctuary!
Apr 10, 2022
I have seen eagles in a "Death Spiral." I've seen it 3 times now, once last spring, but twice in the last week or so. Seeing something so dynamic takes my breath away! Any normal human would be moved by such a sight. I was sitting in my studio writing in my journal and planning my day, which I do almost every morning, when I saw them. It was as if the universe decided that my window was a movie screen and played the scene out for me...only for me. The giant birds circled each other getting clos…
Mid November Life Keeps Getting Better
Nov 11, 2021
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!
Feb 5, 2021
“`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
Jan 20, 2021
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
Dec 30, 2020
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…
