So very tired

It is really overwhelming to read story after story in the news of preventable death because of guns, racism and hate. Over and over the stories begin to run into one another. This week a young white man in Atlanta took a gun and murdered 8 people, 6 of which were Asian American women. Hate isn’t new, racism isn’t new, gun violence isn’t new, genocides, holocausts and racial cleansings prove this both in History books and current events. However, in our enlightened society, it seems like something we could tackle successfully, but haven’t.

If you're happy...

Do you ever find yourself thinking, once I do this, or accomplish that, marry, have a child, once my kid goes into preschool, when I get this job...then I will be happy. We rarely think, here is where I am, can I find happiness here? We are told by influencers, magazines, reality television and print ads that in order to be happy we need to make a certain amount of money, be tall, thin, not have cellulite, have a perfectly coiffed head of hair, to not have any body hair visible and to wear the latest fashion.

Dealing with Change

Creating Space

It is amazing how after a few days without power how excited we still are when the heat kicks on and lightbulbs just give out light with a quick upward swipe of a switch, utterly magical! Our life really gets down to the basics when we are forced to rely on fire, blankets and zero technology.


When you live in the South there are certain things that just make sense, you have a lot of swimsuits, but not a lot of winter wear, you buy sunscreen and bug spray in bulk, when you ask people if they want tea it is assumed it is iced, you say pecan Pe-Chan because Pe-Can refers to a porta potty, 100 degree days are normal and snow is unheard of.
