The Scariest Person to Face is Ourselves


Not much is as inspiring to me than when a person works to help themselves. Even more than when they try to help someone else.... to truly do the work and be there for themselves... to sort themselves out so that they aren't suffering... that to me is truly supreme. More than trying to help [...]

Your Crazy is Your Superpower


I’ve been called crazy since I was a young child. Many people have ridiculed and ostracized me for being and thinking differently. I’ve also been diagnosed with a variety of mental illnesses, including bipolar disorder. There were points in my life where I questioned and even hated my craziness. I felt the pressure to conform [...]

Staying True to Our Nature


During a fascinating podcast I heard a few weeks ago, the speaker mentioned that as humans, we have essentially “written ourselves out” of the definition of nature. In fact, he pointed out, nature is currently defined as being in opposition to humanity. Shocked, I insisted to myself that this could not possibly be true. So, [...]

Are You Weird?


Do you ever feel like a total freak? Do you harbor a secret fear that if you were to show your true self, you would be rejected by the world? I've had this fear all of my life and I've never felt even close to being "normal." While I've always been pretty "out there" and [...]

Doing Less, Being More


2020 stopped us in our tracks.  A micro-particle spread across the planet and changed our lives forever  and in many ways…slowed us down. Yesterday I found (and purchased) a Christmas ornament.  A nice, delicate ornament made with that creamy colored ceramic typical to all things homemade and hand done.  It had an imprint of a [...]
