Birthing A New Book

      My first book called The Bliss Mistress Guide To Transforming The Ordinary Into The Extraordinary came into the world in 2011, not quite like Venus fully formed from sea foam, but rather resembling a human baby, that […]


Why Do We Write What We Do?

A come clean. When recently reading an artist friend’s post about not being responsible for how her art is viewed or perceived, it occurred to me that often I write with the intention of evoking certain responses in the reader. Like […]

All Present and Accounted For

In the moment, I am aware of end of the day sleepy eyes ready to close. Good thing I can type without looking at the keyboard. A few decades as a journalist allows for that talent. Amazing that I was […]

Professional Reader

It’s clear that I am a professional writer. It is my right livelihood work that brings me such joy that it is sometimes overwhelming. I’m grateful that The Muse sees fit to shower me with ideas at all hours of […]

Writing in My Sleep

  With every good intention, I climb into bed, nestle beneath the covers and close my eyes. I am aware of the silence in the room that is palpable. I rarely set the alarm clock, unless I absolutely have to […]

We Never Know Who We Will Touch With Our Words

All At Once

This morning, I am listening to my favorite radio station, WXPN in Philadelphia,  while tip tapping away at the keyboard. Two of my beloved activities. Sipping ginger tea to soothe a wee bit of a sore throat. In a few […]

Shrugging It Off

This morning,  I was perusing Facebook as is my habit, after posting pieces of writing and promo for classes that I teach,  and I came across a meme that spoke to the grammar geek in me. I posted it and then […]

By Invitation

Tonight on my way home from one of my many right livelihood jobs, this one as a counselor in a drug and alcohol treatment outpatient program, I steered the Jeep toward my ‘office away from home’ a.k.a. The Zen Den in […]

Passionate Life

What are you passionate about?  What lights you up from the inside and turns you into a human sparkler? Is there something that you simply can’t wait to do when you get up (after taking care of necessary bodily functions, […]

Taking On the Pain of the World
I am an empath. Rather like the Star Trek: The Next Generation character Deanna Troi, I can pick up on the emotions and sometimes physical sensations of others, whether or not I know them personally. It is both a joy and a challenge. I love ...

Being In The Flow of Life
Consider your life as it is right now.  Is it filled to overflowing with all that you desire, or does it feel dry and lacking in pizazz and juice? Take a moment to do an inventory of what you have going for you. Do you have a place to live ...

What Would Yoda Say?
Although he is a fictional character created by Muppeteers Frank Oz and Jim Henson, Yoda remains my favorite little green sage. His wisdom is exemplary and in his death, he melted back into the Force, as I believe we all do. One of the most ...
