Everything Begins at the Center.

From the heart, authenticity, consciousness.
But where is it? What is it? And why do I need it?

Yellow Crocuses and Belief in Tomorrow

I planted yellow crocuses today. The package says they will pop up in January or February. I have hopes that they will. I gave them everything I could to offer them a good start to their little yellow lives — bone meal, amendment, sweet words. Planting is a...

Oh Menopause You Make Me Pause!

The hot flash comes and I can smell myself begin to sweat. This is not a pungent odor but rather I smell as though someone is pressing rich dark earth through my pores like coffee grounds through an espresso machine. I smell like fertile soil. I smell like you could...
