Blogs / Muses

Everyday moments that puzzle us or catch our attention hold the potential to show us something about ourselves, to inform and enlighten us.

I have been exploring these moments from my own life through my blog posts (previously called Muses) for over five years. Spiritual lessons have been taught to me through a myriad of sources including: spider webs, cloudy days, my kitchen renovation, and getting lost driving to the airport.

Let’s identify together the little and big things that speak to us in our day-to-day lives. Read my posts, tell me your thoughts, share your experiences with other readers. Let’s create a spirited life, one moment at a time.

Declare Your Personal Independence!

While the traditional Fourth of July holiday is grounded in a celebration of our country’s independence, we can apply the same energy to our personal lives by declaring our own independence from anything that seemingly binds and traps us. What holds you captive? Maybe you feel like the world is against you, or that you’re… [Read More]

Blessing the New Year 2017

Taking a Leap!

Our daughter, Laura, was about eighteen months old – steady on her legs, a good walker – the day my husband and I took her to the shoe store to buy some new sneakers. Leaving behind her old, scuffed shoes, she seemed delighted with her new colorful, roomier pair and had a spring in her… [Read More]

Transforming the Trap…a la Groundhog Day

I have loved the movie Groundhog Day since it came out in 1993. This movie has a following – it’s still played in marathon showings yearly on February 2nd – and I can see its appeal. Bill Murray plays the lead role, and Murray’s dry, sardonic wit gives the movie the perfect combination of sharp-edged… [Read More]

May we honor our Oneness while respecting our individuation. Blessings… [Read More]
