You know the old saying, "Be careful what you ask for"?  It implies that you might not really know what you're asking for or that you're not really ready for "it". I think it also means that you have a very specific way in which it will be delivered and when it sh...

Happy New Year! 

This week's blogette is full of my favorite things, starting with a new name! As I mentioned last year, I will continue to wander lustfully through life and you have an open invitation to come along for the ride, however it feels more real to offer up S...

Do you feel wise? If not, is it because you think you need to be a certain age? Or, do you think you need to learn some more? What would allow you to feel wise?

It's taken me quite a while to feel like a wise woman. Interestingly, once I decided to take it on, the feeli...

I've never been to a live TED talk, but I love watching them on YouTube. Living in Boston most of my adult life, I was often able to attend tapings of interesting people at our local public television.  I remember the first time I saw Dr. Dwayne Dyer. For weeks after,...

Do you ever feel like you have a lot of unfinished business? Are there "to do" lists that haven't quite been "done"? Have you ever quietly beaten yourself up for just not getting to everything?  I'm just wondering because I've been there and I don't think I'm alone....

A couple of weeks ago I came across a video on YouTube of Louise Hay discussing one of her most powerful affirmations,

As those of you who have been with me for awhile know and to those who are newer to the scene, I put out an MQ (Monday Quote) every other week and follow it up with a blogette, as I like to call it, on Thursday. As I looked at our MQ this week I wasn't sure where to be...

Hello from northern California. I'm writing with impressive, snow-covered Mt. Shasta right in front of me, reminding me that I am a mere speck on this beautiful earth. I like to think I'm a sparkle in the fabric, but I didn't always feel glittery and bright. In fact, I...

It's that time of year again ... I've just finished packing my car up and I'll be heading west by the time you get this bloggette. For the fifth year in a row I'm driving from Boston, Massachusetts to southern Oregon.
