'Blog Shmlog' is the name of a status update I saw on facebook recently from Shanan Kelly. I have no idea what she meant by it, but she's funny and doesn’t take herself too seriously, which are two qualities I treasure in her and in general.  I have been toying with this idea of blogging, or shmloging as I’d rather call it, for a while now. It’s a radical act of sorts, for me, since...

In my early 20s, I discovered John O'Donohue's various writings on transitions, thresholds and 'thin places'. Thank goodness for his ability to bring forth language about something so ineffable. He speaks/writes such clarity directly into the heart of the particular and unique experience of these spaces and places 'in between'; of the things and times that are 'neither this nor that...

To welcome is to say: "Please. Come in. And be well...

But in my own contemplation of the...

"When you enter into this Community, you are engaging with a principle known as Synarchy ... You’ve been drawn mysteriously and karmically, like a bee to a flower, and there are others also drawn to the same flower, so you share something similar in your essence ... To meet others on the same wavelength as you ... that creates a strong resonance, and it’s this resonance – this honey...

i #optin to believing that the open, unguarded and loving heart itself is the greatest protection - and potential - we have.


this morning, while scanning the radio, a station i don't usually listen to caught my attention. the speaker was riffing on building a fortress around the heart. at first, i assumed the message would continue down the path of why it's actually a really good p...

i choose to #OptIn...

today, we find ourselves a little over a week out, post-black friday. and for the past several days, something that's been at the top of my heart is REI's recent #OptOutside campaign. get this, if you haven't seen or heard. for black friday, REI closed ALL their stores and offices...gave all their employees the day off AND paid them anyway...gave up millions of...

i #OptIn to keeping my heart open...always...AND with particular attention and compassion as we move toward the darkest day of the year and toward the winter season.
