Affirmations for My Less Extreme Youth: I am not a body. I am free.


Hindsight: When I wrote this piece in 2014 I was in my mid fifties. Aging had descended on me like an avalanche, with wrinkles, weight gain, brain fog, stiffness, aches, pains, fatigue and other indignities. At the time, the only explanation I had was the march of time, coupled with menopause and some poor health … Continue reading

Every Need that I Perceive – Update

Stuck in a H.O.A.R.D. with IAGO


The issue of “being stuck” in one’s healing is quite often on my mind.  Many people I come into contact with are stuck.  Currently, a former client who repeatedly violated my professional boundaries—the first client I have ever formally denied services—just can’t let go.  It’s been almost 5 months since I mailed the first certified … Continue reading

Under the Breath


My cat was still—too still.  I leaned down to take a closer look, to find his breath.  In those microseconds, even if he was still alive, I feared his death was imminent.  Although he still has a quality life, he’s an old, sick cat.  Old, sick cats die. He was breathing.  He didn’t die. Now … Continue reading

I feel sad to see a hero fall.  I feel pain and compassion rise above my first reaction of anger when I witness a public figure getting caught in their own deception, and the spectacle of semantic wriggling that usually follows.  What surfaces is a web of lies that must have been incredibly painful to … Continue reading
