Carefully Curating My Legacy

I’m 65 now and that’s a lot of years! I have certainly lived a very full and amazing life, and I’m grateful for all of it. I’m not ready to die yet, but no one ever is… That’s the curious thing about human beings – we think we want to stay in this world forever.…

A Time For Everything

I’ve been quiet these past few months, but busy, and a bit overwhelmed. I flew back to the US at the beginning of March to face the life I had left behind. It was inevitable I suppose, but daunting nevertheless. After both my parents were gone (2012) my brother never let me back into their…

Reflecting on My Healing Journey

The year 2021 is coming to a close so I’m taking this time to reflect. I’ve done a lot of healing work both physically and emotionally throughout the year. I’m not done yet but I have progressed. I feel my heart reaching for a new place, an expanded awareness and a more pure expression of…

Rainy Days Are Not Going Away

It’s days like today that make me want to move to a place that’s high and dry. As the clouds rolled in yesterday they brought pain, weakness and tiredness. Sleep was difficult, and today I struggle with movement and getting focused. The plight of a person with autoimmune issues. Or am I just getting old?…

Tribute to My Beautiful Husband

I never could have imagined what it would be like to lose my husband, my lifelong partner and friend. It’s something you don’t think about ahead of time. We were so busy planning our next goals, creating the life we both wanted, that we never considered one of us dying early. Now I miss him…

Suffering in Paradise

Yeah, it’s been awhile since I wrote that last post. I just left it kind of hanging there. Well the truth is, I couldn’t write about what happened next because it was too raw. I felt too vulnerable. It took me six months to sort myself out, and I went through hell to get back…
