Hi, Pretty. If there is one thing I have come to learn it is this: No pressure. No diamond. No pressure. No diamond. No pressure….. No….. Diamond. I’m standing in my orthotic flip flops at my work station, making amends with how my body is less tolerant of the things I could handle without a… Continue reading Pressure.



I felt the cold, dampness of the winter on my belly as I slithered around on the wood floor. It was a moment that I’ll remember always. I was in a somatic training, and the extra 15 pounds I’d been carrying since college was speaking to me. I felt like a sea walrus as my… Continue reading Here.



Now. Now? Yes. NOW. It may seem as though NOW is a ridiculous time to speak of self-care, when the US capital has been under siege and political, medical and economic unrest are afoot. No, dear Ones. NOW is the EXACT time to speak of self-care. Because self-care is ESSENTIAL to us living our best… Continue reading Now.

You are not going to be the same person tomorrow you are today.   Your soul, call it what you will, is the ever evolving, always expanding, sometimes quiet, other times ravenous, center of your entire being.  And it is carrying you around, pushing your life one way and another from the inside — out.  … Continue reading Soul.
