Hello all….

I’ve launched this site as an opportunity for us to explore how to live with our hearts open, willing to shine our light during these unprecedented times. To explore the judgments that hold us back from shining, and to support each other as we dare to become who we are meant to be. It’s hard to hold steady; we wobble, we fall. But if we fall one hundred times, we rise up one hundred and one. Love never fails.

My blog will share stories from my decade as a hospice social worker, stories about the courage it takes to risk our vulnerability, about how to make room in our hearts for grief, and what it means to dance with our shadow as well as our light.

I lead workshops and small writing groups using prompts…the one sentence suggestions that open the floodgates of our untapped creativity. My blogs will often start with a prompt, and if you are interested in developing or continuing your writing practice, I encourage you to use them as your own writing tool. Set your timer for ten minutes, keep your hand writing, no editing, no critic allowed. If it seems like you’re straying off the topic, keep straying. That’s your uncensored mind and feelings having their say.

If you’d like an automatic notice when I post a new blog, please subscribe on the right side of any page.

Meantime, listen to Living Gently With Grief, a podcast I did with Dona Bumgarner on Nurturing Habitat.

With all warm wishes,
