"Humanity, like armies in the field, advances at the speed of the slowest."

--Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

I always loved the book, Love in the Time of Cholera, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The theme of love in a time of passion (Cholera) resonates for me at this time of COVID.

How do you keep love ali...

“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERY...

It’s been awhile since I have blogged. When I think of what’s happening out there, it feels like I’m listening to nails scraping across a chalkboard. I’ve spent the last few weeks shutting out the increasing noise and negativity, and becoming hypervigilant about my health, especially my mental health.

On reflecting on all...

"Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently."
- Kitty O’Meara

I recently took an online yoga class. The teacher talked about how he noticed that some people during this difficult time were really struggling, but then others seemed to be thriving and doing rea...

Ay, ay, ay, that the slave was my grandfather

is my sadness, is my sadness. 

If he had been the master

it would be my shame: 

that in men, as in nations, 

if being the slave is having no rights

being the master is having no conscience. 

—Julia Se Burgos 

As an empath, I feel everything. Just seeing pictures, hearing stories, watchi...

I watched a movie the other night on Netflix called, "Carriers" that came out in 2015. It was about a flesh eating bacteria that was contagious. I was so surpri...

And the people healed
And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

I remember exactly where I was when I knew life as I had known it had ended.

I was with my hairstylist getting my hair done three weeks ago. We were discussing possible vacations we were going to go on in the summer. She was talking about Ibiza, Spain and how beautiful it was.  I...

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul,

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.
