Who Am I?

Posted by on Apr 20, 2016 in musings |

This person I am becoming…it’s a process of remembering and forgetting and recycling over and shedding. There are layers not needed. There are layers forgotten yet necessary. There are bare bones requiring nothing. Nothing but the use of what they were made for: the foundation. Who am I? What are my bare bones? I’m in the process of stitching together the pieces of my story. Reassembling the original package of my soul all...

Living Life as a Thank You

Posted by on Jan 23, 2016 in musings |

Living life as a thank you. Today my heart broke. I was saddened by an experience I witnessed my son having. Sadness washed over me seeing the hurt, the fear, the humiliation on his face. All the emotions he felt was experienced in my body. I wish I could rewind and edit, backspace and delete this unwanted file. Make it gone. But it happened. And in the aftermath, I’ve been trying to see the light. What can we learn? What can I be...

Self Care aka Flower Power

Posted by on Nov 25, 2015 in musings | 3 comments

This past month, self-care has returned to my world. It included my first-ever acupuncture session, 2 flotation therapy sessions and a  3-day yoga retreat. As a work-at-home artist and mother of two young boys, replenishing my well usually falls last on the list. But after feelings of lack (not-enough time/resources/self-worth) crept into my head and seemed to be taking up residence, I had to do something. Too many consecutive days of...

Grateful

Posted by on Nov 14, 2015 in musings |

So grateful. That’s how I’m feeling right now in this moment. Tomorrow is not promised to us. And yesterday can never exist today. Every waking moment is new. Every day is a new day. This past week was filled with fevers, vomit, diarrhea, oozing buggas: the boys were sick. It was hard. It’s difficult to witness the reality of your child’s mortality. And today? Today they were bouncing around as if nothing happened. Back...

Action Is Required

Posted by on Oct 24, 2015 in musings | 2 comments

Action. Action is required at this time. I’ve been wanting, waiting, hoping for inspired action. You know that feeling that just moves you to dance, to paint, to create! How beautiful, how sexy how romantic, that notion of inspired action. Beautiful clean bright inspiration. Inspire. In spirit. But what if you feel disconnected to spirit? What if you’ve been searching and searching for the plug but have been coming up empty. Empty....

Divinity Now

Here we are now. Now here. N o w h e r e. We had a fabulous summer vacation on the mainland and returned home to Hawaii in a flurry of packing, moving, unpacking and settling into our new home. And what lush and beautiful surroundings we find ourselves. I’d really like to chat a long time about the external beauty of this place but I’d rather use this space to record what is really on my mind: authenticity. Authentic: not false or...
