Slow Down and Eat UP

Its been awhile since I ventured into my kitchen with awe and inspiration. Maybe it is the summer heat or just running around being too busy to hang at the hearth.

Detangling Of The Mind: Success

A friend once called me Matrix Eyes, as she claimed to think I saw the world in a very strange and unique way. I agree. I also know that writing helps me to find clarity, hence the “Detangling Of The Mind” writing series I have decided to play with. This is the first topic that […]

Healing Our Relationships

Ooh baby, it is time. We are being called to action–to notice the patterns & grooves that we have become stuck in and really look at the way we live. It is becoming a sore point that the wounds we carry-whether from our own past or cultural wounds-are the underlying seeds of a blame game […]
