Blessings Abound

We all know the downfalls of Facebook.  It is a total “time suck,” for sure.  It does lower productivity, for sure.  (I’m sure most of us have heard of at least one boss forbidding Facebook on company time.)  It does prevent many of us from being out in the “real world” of nature, of face-to-face…

The other day I went to meet a new friend in town.  She was new to the area and I bought us a small vegetarian pizza to share.  Then I went to the grocery store and bought some tea bags and peanut butter and jelly.  I also stopped at the thrift store to chat with…

I am very blessed to live in a place where the nighttime sky is magnificent.  There is very little ambient light and so the stars are absolutely stunning.  There are layers upon layers of stars.  There are gloriously bright stars piercing with their utter clarity.  And there are hundreds and hundreds, maybe thousands, of other…

Last night I went to a drumming circle.  After an opening ritual, we did some drumming together and then there was a check-in.  As the people there, one by one, shared what was going on in their lives I became aware of some great exhaustion within me.  I’ve been blessed with lots of work lately…

I am so blessed to live at the foot of a sacred mountain.  This mountain has been sacred to the Hopi, the Ute, the Dineh, and the Apache, to name a few.  I just found out yesterday that the names these people have for this mountain, although each a little different, mean basically The Shining…

How much can you live without? I had lunch with a friend yesterday and we were talking about how surprised we were at how little we seem to need materially.  Both she and I had moved to this small mountain town in Colorado from thousands of miles away – I from Pennsylvania, she from Costa…

A friend of mine made a list of things to do in the coming year.  These were not dry and responsible things like: lose weight, pay off debts, or exercise more.  No, no, no.  This was Tara, after all, and Tara doesn’t do “dry and boring.”  On her list were “juicy and sexy” things –…

This evening my spirit was craving the sight and sounds of flowing water.  So I put on my sneakers and gathering up my sweater, I took a short walk up Moonlight Way.  (Yes, I am blessed to live off of a road called Moonlight Way.  Aren’t I a lucky woman?)  After a quarter of a…

I don’t usually like to drive.  But maybe that’s because I’ve spent so much of my life living in the Mid-Atlantic region of the country, smack in the middle of several huge metropolises – Philadelphia, New York, and Baltimore /Washington, D.C.  The traffic can be a little intense at times in the greater Philadelphia area. …
