It’s all about to change.
The crows are congregating in the side-yard spruce, screeching and cawing after a summer of stillness. The echinacea is drooping in the front garden, vibrant pink petals tatty and tired. Early autumn is a time in-between: the days are still warm but the night breeze begins to whisper of winter, smelling a bit like a promise and a lot like freedom.
I sync my steps with the outer world, harnessing the power of the shifting light and the changing leaves. Take me with you into whatever’s next, I whisper, as I lay out my own transitions like the first-day-of-school outfit, smoothing the wrinkles and adding a dash of unexpected color.

After a decade of weekly blogging, I’m ready for a change of season, a next phase, an end, a new beginning. I’ve been nurturing these seismic shifts all summer.

Seven years ago, sitting with my web designer at a sweet little restaurant (which no longer exists) on a snowy November evening, I proposed an idea. At the time it felt like a big idea, one that would take a lot of energy and resources... But I had a little tickle in...read more
"Trust yourself. Listen to your inner voice.” You've probably heard this advice from your mom, your yoga teacher, your crystal-wearing neighbor, and countless people on social media (don't get me started on flippant social media advice!). Even if this deep intuitive...read more
Moon Gatherings. Sisterhood Circles. Business Masterminds... Can these get-togethers really make your life better? Or are they just another to-do on your calendar? Let’s start with a resounding YES! (hear that echoing off tall buildings, short mountains, and bouncing...read more
One of the most beautiful lessons the natural world can teach us is that linear time is a human construct. In nature, time is cyclical. Around the world, people who know this use the symbol of the circle to show how time moves. Often times this circle is designed like...read more
