My wish for you, beautiful wise woman, is for you to be heard. Your unique perspective – arising from your experiences and your passions, your history and your vision, your struggles and your accomplishments, your hopes and your joy, your fears and your fury – your unique perspective holds a necessary piece of our shared […]

Close friends

You know this to be true: good friends are some of our most treasured blessings! Our friends help dream us into being. Their eyes of love let us see and know that we are lovable.

What’s your relationship with endings?

Maybe it’s because loyalty is one of my essential values. Maybe it feels like a form of surrender and I’m just never good at that. It could be that a final decision makes me nervous since I much prefer to keep my options open. Or perhaps it’s because I’d rather not clean up after myself. […]

Unexpected grace

Last fall I was in the Fort Lauderdale airport returning home from a final memorial service for my brother. It had been another visit full of all kinds of emotions, mostly love, loss, sorrow, and the joy of connection with my brother’s circle of friends. I was a sea of feelings in the busy and […]
