Hello friends.

I sure do hope that each of you is "hanging in".

I think I finally figured out a way for you to subscribe to my blog (if you would like to...)

over at its new home on Squarespace (use the "contact" form on the main page).

Today I shared some calming links that might soothe your soul.

triptych #50


It's been quiet here in this space. Resting, learning, reading, trying new things, healing a bit, too. Late autumn, early winter here in Vermont has us drawing closer to the center of things, hunkering in, moving things around to make life more cozy.

I've been working on creating a new space for my online ramblings. A few workshops and some good advice have helped me craft my next steps in life. Things are taking shape slowly and it's so lovely not to be in a rush to get things done.

Holding all of you, my friends, in this space of hope and renewal and patience.

All action begins in rest.

-Lao Tzu

May you find time to breathe deeply.

To put up you feet.

To listen to birdsong, or music or silence.

Notice the slant of the sunlight.

Sink into the lovely month of November.

Pause to see what is revealed to you in the quiet.

and still we plod on...


last night's sunset, from our place
this morning'a sunrise, from the other side of the ridge

well friends,
we made it to the other side of the elections (kind of).

such relief, celebration and hope.
and yet, concern and dismay thanks to you know who.

still it seems,
one foot in front of the other.
some distractions for you...

november 1, 2020


Start acting like you are a member of a 

compassionate majority up against a

desperate,  fearful, and shrinking minority.

Because you are.

-Ethan Nichtern

wherever we end up in the next week or so,
the sun will still come up, 
and we will put one foot in front of the other,
because really, really, really,
the words above are true.

hang in there friends.
