I believe in simplicity. I believe in feelings and family, friendship and fidelity, forgiveness and fortitude. I believe in miracles, meditation, motherhood and make believe and that music is the only real magic this world has ever seen. I believe in concocting and consuming colorful cocktails and fussing over and feasting on fabulous food. I believe in living out loud. I believe in laughing until your face hurts and loving until your heart breaks. I believe in behaving boldly and when warranted, badly, taking bubble baths and being barefoot. I believe in poetry, puppies and playing in the park. I believe in seeking without ceasing that which sings to my soul and strengthens my spirit. I believe in dancing in the rain and digging in the dirt. I believe in honest expression and the golden rule. I believe in Nature and naps and that naïveté is sometimes necessary. I believe in goodness and gratitude, grit and grace. I believe in unity and the power of the universe. I believe in being authentically awesome. I believe in being better today than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow. I believe in challenges and change and growing pains. I believe in the inherent worth of every creature, being and life force on this planet. I believe in honoring the individual journeys and paths of people whether I understand them or not. I believe in letting people live their truth and trusting that it’s right for them. I believe in lifting up and letting go. I believe that death is just as sacred an experience as birth and that it is never, ever an end.

Mostly, I just believe that I’m never going to stop learning what it is I believe.


Read the Printed Word!



“If I dare to hear you, I will feel you like the sun and grow in your direction.”

Mark Nepo

Imagine a world where we all dared to hear one another. A world where we could grow together instead of apart.

“The further I wake into this life, the more I realize that God is everywhere and the extraordinary is waiting quietly beneath the skin of all that in ordinary. Light is in both the broken bottle and the diamond, and music is in both the flowing violin and the water dripping from the drainage pipe. Yes, God is under the porch as well as on top of the mountain, and joy is in both the front row and the bleachers, if we are willing to be where we are.”

—Mark Nepo

“In a world that lives like a fist, mercy is not more than waking with your hands open.”

—Mark Nepo

“To change one’s life:
1. Start immediately.
2. Do it flamboyantly.
3. No exceptions.”

—William James

One of the greatest joys in my life is that I finally have a circle of loved ones who do not hide themselves from me and allow me to love them in my own way…ALL the way. A group of loved ones who accept me, with grace and love, in all my forms at all times.
I absolutely cannot conceive of a grander gift at this time in my life journey.
This, and every day, I am grateful.

Always, always, always something there to remind me.

Us.

Simple but never plain.

“That’s who you really like. The people you can think out loud in front of.”
