Hi there, dear readers! The Fourth of July is coming up, and I'd like to say something inspirational, but honestly, I got nothin'. According to national polls, we Americans don't like anybody or anything all that much right now. But, you know what? It's not an election year, so no matter what the pundits say, … Continue reading Happy Birthday, USA
This is an important week for our nation as our leaders in Washington D.C. negotiate the economic path we will follow in the coming years. We need to remember that, for better or worse, the U.S. is a world leader, and the decisions made here affect everyone everywhere. Please pray with me that Divine Energy … Continue reading Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
I pray and affirm that we are a courageous and compassionate people, eager to heal racism, misogyny, homophobia, and hatred, to create a culture that values all life, that treasures our planet, that is willing to let go of greed and manifest a world of abundance for all of us to share. Amen Happy Thanksgiving … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving

Continuing to celebrate poetry in April. . . One hundred dark-haired ladies in red silk kimonos twirl in the foggy sky between wakefulness and sleep, Swinging from each finger: one thousand origami cranes, a rainbow on each hand. In the cool silk moment they float before the sun burns through the mist. Delicate as balloons, … Continue reading Prayer for Peace

Over this past year and a half of pandemic and lockdown, it was a blessing that so many of my family, friends, and acquaintances remained healthy and free of the virus. No one I know (that I’m aware of) succumbed to COVID 19. However, over the course of this past decade, I have lost four people whom … Continue reading Spirit Animals
This summer I’ve been re-reading one of my favorite spiritual books, Why People Don’t Heal And How They Can, written by medical intuitive Caroline Myss, back in 1997. The book covers many topics, but the parts I relate to most strongly—as a cradle Catholic--are the parallels she draws between the seven Chakras and the seven Sacraments.

I think I can say without fear of contradiction that this has been a weird year. And hey!--suddenly, it's Easter again. It feels rather surreal. Like many people, I have done very little to celebrate holidays during the pandemic. That's okay; I'm all for downsizing the fuss and nonsense and commercialization. Truth be told, I … Continue reading Easter Greetings/Pandemic Edition
St. Jude showed up at my door today with a little package tightly wrapped in pale blue paper, adorned with a large clump of curled white ribbon (he’d obviously had it wrapped at the store.) I was surprised to see him; I was unaware he made house calls. It seemed impolite not to invite … Continue reading Goose Girl
