Nuts About Dragons

Nuts About Dragons

February 8, 2024

This week begins the Chinese New Year of the Wood Dragon. Generally, I hold only a passing interest in this annual cycle of the Chinese zodiac—it isn’t my culture, after all—but I am thrilled this year. Thrilled because, as I am now confessing, I have a long-standing fascination with dragons. read more

Multidimensional

Multidimensional

November 14, 2023

Just when the news has become almost unbearably difficult to absorb—increasingly so—the Universe, without my researching or making any effort at all, has thrown an unusual number of things my way that captivate and delight me. Enlarging and thickening visions about what is desirable and possible. I am simply reporting what I have noticed. Because I think noticing widely is important—always, but especially now. read more

August 16, 2023

I’m still living this jumble of a summer, but taking time to pop in to share some of my recent earth offerings. May they nourish you as much as they have nourished me.read more

Jumble

Jumble

July 17, 2023

Are all summers a jumble, or is this one particularly so? A jumble of activities and experiences, a jumble of emotions—even the weather has been a bit of a jumble. What's been going on, and why I may not write blogs and newsletters in the next few months.read more

Catchall

April 20, 2023

A collaged bouquet of flowers (since real ones are not here yet) and a little wordplay on a cool rainy day at the new moon...How many different expressions of the word "catch" can you think of?read more

Color Amid the Snow

Color Amid the Snow

February 20, 2023

I'm almost buried in snow here, and crabby. I crave COLOR. So in the hope that you could use some color too--even those of you in warmer climates--I will fill this post with bright hues instead of more words. Random acts of gaudy art.read more

Searching for Words in a Fog

Searching for Words in a Fog

January 21, 2023

When struggling for words for a blog, sometimes play--especially wordplay--is helpful for me to get out of any pomposity. Here is a limerick about that, for your amusement.read more

A Mystery of Childhood Mementos

A Mystery of Childhood Mementos

September 24, 2022

Other than writing and art, I have saved only two items from my childhood (though one was only recently donated). And why I saved one of them is a mystery to me. Here is the story.read more

Snakes

Snakes

August 27, 2022

Snakes appear often in my art, and have for years. Snake also emerged as my animal/symbol for 2022. Is there a message here? Is something in my past triggering the unconscious calling up of  these images? Or?read more

Earth Prayers--A Reprise

Earth Prayers--A Reprise

August 5, 2022

A year ago, after a couple trips to Lake Superior, I posted how I had begun there a regular practice of creating earth altars---how energizing it was to create them, why and how I created them (as an intuitive co-creation with the life around me and anchored by an intentional blessing), and why I saw each one as "a love offering, a blessing prayer, a piece of art, and an exercise in letting go." This year I created three earth altars during my 11 day trip to Lake Superior, and I'd love to share them with you.read more

Welcome to Whisperings

Whisperings Water Image“There is a place where words are born of silence,
A place where the whispers of the heart arise.”

— Rumi

I will ponder here what whispers to me in the silence. I’d love for you to whisper back; maybe we will all get clearer—or maybe, like in the old kids’ game of “telephone” we will end up somewhere else entirely (which would be fun too)
