Falling Off The Wagon: Routines During Summer

We just got back from a glorious vacation. It wasn’t ten days in the Caribbean or Italy and it was certainly not all relaxation, but it was wonderful and we returned feeling deeply nourished.

Complaining: The Most Unattractive Way To Communicate Your Life Experience

Something is shifting lately. I’m feeling a little dusty all over, a little uncomfortable in my body. Somehow I’ve become very uninspired by the way I communicate and perceive my life. This fall we cleaned our house. We made a few Salvation Army runs, got rid of some random furniture, repotted plants, redecorate rooms and …
