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.

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]
