I took a quick trip into town to pick up my weekend mail; lo and behold - my newest tarot deck had arrived! Invoking the Goddess by Lisa de St. Croix is the first round deck that I've had in a very long time and I love the way it feels in my hands - … Continue reading Celebrate!

Windstorm Bop

So, I sat down to shuffle the cards and pull a reading. I shuffle first by the traditional riffle method and then the underhand method and wait until random cards fall or stick out of the deck. The cards are pretty well mixed in. And even so, I got the three cards from yesterday's reading. … Continue reading Windstorm Bop


There are very few things that 'get' me the way that lies do. I understand little white lies that do no harm and ease your life and the lives of others. The key word here is 'little'. Of no consequence. But it seems that lies are a big commodity right now both in the larger, … Continue reading Lies


A parable is a short tale that illustrates a universal truth; it is a simple narrative. It sketches a setting, describes an action, and shows the results. It may sometimes be distinguished from similar narrative types, such as the allegory and the apologue. A parable often involves a character who faces a moral dilemma or … Continue reading Parables


Hello Everyone! It's good to be back after a few extra days that I needed to settle in to my new home. It's not quite perfect yet, but it's well on the way. Tomorrow I'll have my first visitors - friends from Montana passing through from there to elsewhere. It's not always easy to put … Continue reading Self-Love


Sometimes, the aftermath of a move is more disruptive than the move itself! All is well ... and ... there are many small adjustments to make before I settle back in to a daily routine. I anticipate my usual daily postings to resume tomorrow evening ... if ... all goes according to plan. Meanwhile ... … Continue reading Meander


Last night, I realized that an electric space heater would be a helpful addition to my new home. I have a very good one ... in storage ... 1,920 miles away. So this morning I went off to the closest stores - 45 miles one way. The drive was gorgeous, I passed over the continental … Continue reading Serendipity

Shabbos Musings

Night has fallen, candles have been lit; the peace of the Sabbath descends upon my home. May the peace of Shabbos fill you and yours as well.  When I light the Shabbos candles, I speak the prayers of an ancient language celebrating light, love, and the blessings of life. Shabbos – to cease – to … Continue reading Shabbos Musings


I'm on the threshold of day and night, today and tomorrow, my past and my future. So are you. This is my last night in the lovely home of a local friend. When I was in an unexpected situation where the home I was living in became untenable, she generously offered to let me stay … Continue reading Thresholds

I Don’t Wanna!

When I was a child, under seven certainly, I did not want to go home with my parents after a visit to my dad's parents. I was so clear about "I don't wanna!" that I would hide under their bed. Way in the back so no one could get at me from either side. Many … Continue reading I Don’t Wanna!


Guidance for the week of March 17 through March 23 Solitude I am comfortable in my own skin as I detach to replenish my soul I am packing and preparing for my move this week to a new home, nearby to the haven that I've been living in since mid January. I have experienced the … Continue reading Solitude


One of the blessings of moving to New Mexico was the delight of the many forms and practices of art in this small community. Within days of my move, I was attending the weekly poetry group and my own poetry began to flow after years of quietude. Today, I'm feeling a little under the weather … Continue reading Strands

Slow and Steady

Over the past four years, I've been trading sessions with a peer coach. We studied together in the same coaching certification program and have spoken with one another almost every week over those years. We've gone in very different directions professionally - she is now a successful executive coach while I turned to integrate my … Continue reading Slow and Steady
