So the Darkness Shall Be the Light

The Winter Solstice is one of my most thoughtful times. I suppose because I spent so much time with darkness. That sounds terribly dramatic–and it was until I found a way to live with it.

A wild yet subtle concoction

Reverb 15 Day 9 what if you had to give someone a recipe for how to make a YOU?   1 Abounding love for a certain Bean 5 cups cats A library Loyalty Compassion A mother lion’s strength A survivor’s sorrow and joy A snow globe holding my childhood Love A …

Prepared for Serendipity

Reverb Day 8: Alchemy and Serendipity The answer for serendipity is easy. It happened a little more than a year ago, but it has made my life immeasurably better–finding a good friend again. Another friend happened to post an instagram pic of getting her hair done and who was doing …

Sentence first- verdict afterwards

Reverb Day 7 I am in such a holding pattern, I don’t know what I am the verdict of. Still here. Still trying to move forward but not lose touch with with the love, hearings and endings I’ve found from moving back home. It is a good place in many …

Unweaving

Reverb Day 6 Looking at the thoughts and patterns that may be holding you back from living the life you want, trace back through the generations of your family and see if your beliefs originated generations ago. In 2016, how can you bring healing to these patterns of thought that …

Lonesome, talking to the moon

Reverb Day 3 I haven’t spend much time outside at night. Not this summer, with all the rain, not recently in the fall. I used to do this every weekend at least for a bit. What changed? Some friends moved away. I liked to sit on our patio with them …

Stuff Happens

Reverb Day 2 I’m a little behind, that is no surprise. So much stuff going on. Trying to maintain a semblance of a real life while selling a house is not the easiest thing to do. We’ve purged and changed  and rearranged. We clean every single day.  But it is …

Home is where your family is

Project Reverb Prompt: Home: Tell us about what home meant to you this year. Are you a homebody? Did you do a renovation? Move? Redecorate? We have taken down many of our paintings, our sculptures. Much of the personality in our home is being removed day by day. We are …

Never means 2 weeks

Project Reverb prompt: “What did you think you’d NEVER do. But you did this year. Why? What changed your mind?” Someone told me a long time ago that never means two weeks. So I try not to say never.  I do see some things have ended but I haven’t said that …

Somewhat Joyful Discoveries

Day 20 Project Reverb prompt: “What products have you discovered this year that you love?  Tell us all about them, and why you love them.” I really like the shirts from SighCo. J had a very Cthulhu Christmas. And these GreenForest baskets have been very cute for organizing. Other than …

Wrestling with Symbolism

Day 19 Project Reverb prompt: “What did you wrestle with in 2014?  What did you learn?  What challenges do you foresee in 2015?” I love how these keep circling back, as if to drive the point home. This is a way to recognize how not to repeat the same painful …

Enlightened Nourishment

Day 18 Project Reverb prompt: “Did you have an “ah ha” moment this year? Was it a big one? Or just a small enlightenment?” Dammit, I had a long one written and it was eaten. It was a series of ahas. 1. This is how I look. It is not …
