Relationships

This one is for the mothers, the daughters, and the millennials.

May 7, 2019

So, a month ago, yesterday, I was teaching. And my daughter, Maggie, was in the class. On the surface, that is a totally simple, relevant, and expected consequence of being a mom and being a teacher. It might be kind of predictable that one day my adult daughter would wander in to The School of […]

April 23, 2019

How good does it make you feel when you experience an incredible moment of synchronicity? You are thinking about an old friend, or an old lover, and — boom! — they call you! Or you run into each other at a coffee shop! You just know you are in flow. And there is nothing that […]

Who made you the woman you are?

March 8, 2019

Happy International Women’s Day, sister. In my world, every single day is International Women’s Day. Slogging, sashaying and twerking up the feminist highway in celebration of women, it’s how I have chosen to spend my life. So, I often just ignore the day and slog and twerk along, in my usual fashion. But this year, […]

You do not (have to) make any sense.

November 20, 2018

Here’s the routine: I wake up, put on the coffee, light the candles on my altar, pray, dance, journal, and then make an oat milk latte. ​​​​​​​ I am centered and grounded, inhaling the fragrance of the coffee. Warmed on the inside by each sip. Ready to meet the challenges of my day. But, a […]

How much no is in your yes?

October 23, 2018

How often do you agree to do something, that you do not really, really want to do? Kiss them. Agree to help out. Stay at the party later. Go to the movie they picked. Listen to their problems. Work late. Again. Do you find your desire to please other people is an even stronger pull […]

It is time for women to power […]

3 ways to get yourself back after getting knocked down

October 9, 2018

It is not easy to get centered. Especially now. A trip through the headlines can whip us all around the whirligig. Not to mention the sheer daily brutality of living in a patriarchal world culture.
