There is no worse word for a woman than stuck. We can handle pain.  We can handle loss.  We can handle chaos. There is a beginning, middle and end to those experiences. But stuck feels like slow asphyxiation. Like solitary confinement. Trapped with no oxygen, no windows, and no understanding of how to get out....

Darling, Gratitude is Water. A lazy river, a lake, a pool, inside, that never empties. Any moment I remember, she rises, ready for me to dip my cup. Dipping my cup replenishes hers. Friday is my day at the barn. I gotta hit the 9am Hampton Jitney, or all is lost. It was raining Friday...

Darling, I am still drenched, saturated, steeped in the beauty, power, and cell-changing energy that we created in Miami. No kidding, Sisters. It was Nuclear. Fission. That’s what we were doing all weekend. Live alchemy. Which gets amplified in the most astonishing way when we come together as a community to kneel, together, at the...

Darling, I’m writing to you from Miami, as I’m about to board a plane back to NYC. What’s spinning through my head? “Through the Eyes of Love” by Melissa Manchester. “I Had the Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing. The Sentimental Saccharine Geek has taken over my soul. I have been weeping with gratitude...

Darling, Has anyone ever told you to just get out there and FEEL? FEEL loudly? WEEP uncontrollably? RAGE like an angry lioness? HOWL like a bitch in heat? Cry MORE? SCREAM your head off? What women have been trained, taught and conditioned, their whole lives, is to turn down the volume and velocity of their...

Darling, Look around. Everything is dying here in the Northeast. The grass is brown. The leaves are throwing one last party, exploding with color, before they fall, die, and dry up. Every year: death. Birth, life, death. I have always had a preference for the first two. Birth is so beautiful. Life – so exciting....

Darling, I have to be honest. Motherhood absolutely overwhelmed me. From the first moment I pushed my baby out, I was absolutely overwhelmed with love, with worry, with fear, with responsibility. I remember the first night after I gave birth to her in the hospital and everyone suggested that I leave her in the nursery...

Darling, When you have a deep desire, what do you do? Are you thrilled to be filled with yearning? Do you enjoy that delicious feeling of wanting? Or do you focus, instead, on the pain of not having what you want? Are you pissed that you don’t have what you want? Do you curse the...

Darling, Is your light on or off? Right now. Take a quick test: Do you feel flush with enthusiasm? Beautiful? Strong? Confident? Good.  Then your light is on. Light is everything. No light, no life.  It’s that simple. Do you notice women’s light? I am sure you do. You can tell right away whether it...

Darling, I have just gotten the single mother break of the century. My daughter has a whole weekend sleepover with a camp friend, in the country.  She gets fresh fall air, changing leaves, and giggling all night with friends, and I have time to ride my horse, catch up with friends, and sip a cup...
