In consideration of colors

Sunday, April 25th, 2021

One of my therapy clients said that red and purple are her favorite colors. I was struck by how those colors compose the outer edges of a rainbow. And then my mind became transfixed. It was difficult to hear anything else. I was a deer in the headlights. Time stopped. The thing is, I want […]

Alignment

Friday, April 9th, 2021

I’ve been listening to some of my therapy clients talk about the importance of their internal lives being in alignment with their external actions and relationships.

Synchronicity

Tuesday, February 9th, 2021

The phone rings and I was just thinking of that person. I was just painting with oranges and yellows and an orange and yellow gift arrives. In the midst of daydreaming about spring, a bus drives by with a bold green billboard announcing “SPRING!” Synchronicity feels important. Maybe it’s because things are clicking together and […]

Transforming fullness

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

I found an old sketch of mine and considered how many waves of expression have come through. My drawings now look similar to how they used to but are also changed. My presence and words are also similar but changed. Into the transforming fullness of me, my deep spirit invites. Into full expanse ahead and […]

It is never too late

Monday, December 7th, 2020

It is never too late to hold my inner child in my lap, look into her eyes, and tell her she belongs. There is so much we have all learned about belonging since childhood. This is hard-won wisdom and the learning is ongoing. What does your current adult-self know about belonging that the child didn’t […]

True Belonging

Or perhaps saying or doing things out of simply wanting to belong? We all […]
