Hello, everyone! Today is the new moon leading up to the Flower Moon. It's all about growth, beauty, and potential to me. What do I want to grow in my life? What brings me the greatest sense of joy? Right now, it's all about my writing. I'm well into the first draft of an ambitious … Continue reading The Flower Moon Begins to Bloom
Looking back on my post for the new moon this month, I actually made a lot more progress than I realized! My planners for 2019 are set up (I actually have three of them), and though I haven't mapped out exactly when I'll be working on each writing project, I'm ready to roll with the … Continue reading Cold Moon Goals Progress
It's the first day of Winter and we're heading into the longest night of the year. We get a full moon tomorrow (the "Long Night's Moon"), to boot! I celebrate the darkness on this day as well as the return of the light. When I talk to the little ones in my life about darkness, … Continue reading Joyous Solstice!
Today is the full moon sometimes called the Harvest Moon. It's a time to reap the benefits of all the hard work we've done, gathering the fruits of our labor in preparation for the colder months ahead. Autumn is my favorite season, with Winter a close second. Knitting, writing, hot cocoa, and bundling up under … Continue reading The Harvest Moon
What I'm happy about this week: new projects. That trip to my favorite yarn shop yielded the above super-cheery yarn. I plan to make myself a set of vibrant wrist warmers. Colors are said to influence people's psyches. I've found that very true for me. Yellow is supposed to stimulate the intellect and creativity, and … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Eighteen
I like to use the cycles of the moon and sun to remind me of the bigger world that surrounds us—the earth beneath our feet, the air we travel through and that travels through us, the flaming ball of energy that supports life on our planet. It's a fun way to reflect on the world, … Continue reading The Cold Moon—2017
We're only a day away from the Winter Solstice. This is my favorite astronomical phenomenon to celebrate because I love what it symbolizes. Fresh starts, renewals, and increasing possibilities. More than any other time of year, this is when I can work to reinvent myself—to let go of those aspects of myself that are no … Continue reading Making Room
When I sat down to write this post, I realized that I missed the July full moon. Not just posting about it—even being aware it was happening. This is something I try to avoid. Modern society has moved so far from the natural. Much of my life revolves around screens. Computer screens, phone screens, TV. … Continue reading A Second Chance at Gratitude
It's been just over a week since Lingering Touch came out. There's been so much activity surrounding it! I added a section to the Lingering Touch page on my web site just to track all the guest blog posts, features, and interviews! ❤ I'm thrilled to have been interviewed on the USA Today Happy Ever … Continue reading Still Celebrating…With Food!
Today is triply blessed for me. It's the Summer Solstice and the full moon for June—the Strong Sun Moon. And also, today is the release day for my latest scifi novella (which is not at all a coincidence 😉 ). It's a good time to take stock of the last year, and after reading my … Continue reading The Strong Sun Moon
