Ancient One who makes all things new may we receive with gentleness and touch with hopefulness and protect with fierceness and love with tenderness; and may we celebrate with gratefulness and welcome with humbleness and tend with gracefulness all that you give into our care. -- Jan Richardson ........................................................................................................ We just returned from 8 days [...]

Happy New Year everyone! I had an awesome 2008 and am more excited about the new year than ever. LOTS of beautiful things coming! We had a really fun visit in St. Louis with family and friends. It was a whirlwind packed with all good things. And! My belly WAY bumped out this 27th week. [...]

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted. I returned from the islands last week and hit the ground running (and snow-shoeing!) and am trying to hold on to the calmness I felt being near the ocean. It was just what I needed. I feel renewed and re-energized despite feeling a little [...]

randevu options.

It's been snowing non-stop. Went for a long walk this morning 'round the hood and thru the woods, Oso paving the way, crows flying and cawing overhead. The Sangres looked so mysterious, so Himalaya-esque. I just love that. I've been a little distracted the past few days scheming with Patrick for a randevu somewhere, an [...]

It was fun to read all the comments on the eject post-it-note post. Seems like some of you have been in that same place before, and others are maybe standing there present moment. A friend (who is maybe standing some place in between, or rather staring at her eject button from a distance but not [...]

I took my Nepali language book off the shelf yesterday just for fun and to remind myself of what I know (somewhere deep in the back of my brain). When I opened it, I found this inside: If case you can't tell, that's a post-it note with a drawing of an eject button on it. [...]

the city museum.

What looks at first to be a construction site/obvious death-trap-for-kids is the coolest playground EVER. While home for the holidays, Patrick and I went on a little adventure to the City Museum. What's that, you ask? a Dr. Seuss-Moustrap game. a ride down the rabbit hole. and the brain child of artist/sculptor Bob Cassilly. I [...]
