"From roots to wings" is a phrase that started tugging at my heart several weeks ago and hasn't let me go. I wasn't sure if it was going to be the title of my next book, a song, a Sunday talk or something else. Turns out, it may be more than one of those. The words seem especially appropriate given what I've been experiencing the last almost 2 years with the diagnosis, treatments, layers of unpleasant news, more treatments, and a whole host of emotions! At every turn, this challenge has required me to dig

You've walked this journey with me and so I continue to share. Hopefully we can each learn something about ourselves along the way, or maybe we just start to appreciate our moments a little more. That would be enough. Today was an emotionally challenging day for me...

What a year it has been! Someone recently asked me what I thought of my year, fully expecting me to reference the health challenges. And yes, from that perspective, it has been one of the most difficult years of my life. But I surprised her with an answer of, "Wow...what a year!" I've experienced so many wonderful things this year, and I've traveled more than I ever have before. 

Home for the Holidays....what does that mean? Often it's a gathering with family and friends and while that is one version of home, here I'm referring to a completely different one.... that still place inside each of us, where unconditional love and peace abide. It's a home that is always accessible and available, no matter where we physically are or what may be swirling around us. We are always welcome, always comforted and always safe. In this moment, I'm reaching for the essence of my internal home. I desire to navigate my days expressing from that place, but I know I need to feel it for myself first. I'm finding it to be a most challenging task.

Hello friends! Many of you have been inquiring because I've been out of touch for awhile. I'm well and just taking some time to contemplate life and how best to move forward. I hope you are well too! Today I invite you along on my walk and thought process, exploring a recognition of acceptance.

It’s a gorgeous Fall morning here, with a sun unseasonably warm for the time of day. As I head out for a walk, my eyes are excited
