Art Journal Revisited • 2004

                  All these Soul Journal entries are in Journal #5 created from May 2004 to October 2004. I used an Arches Papier Aquarelle book with cold pressed paper. They no longer make them which is unfortunate. It was a beautiful grey color that tied with ribbon just […]

K.I.S.S. Whole 30

K.I.S.S. Whole 30

It’s the beginning of day 2 and I am sitting here wondering what I was so afraid of. I spent yesterday preparing some meals for work. It took a couple of hours, but I have enough food for my 4 day work week, so that feels pretty efficient. It is a 55 hour work week, […]

Whole 30 in 3…2…1…

Whole 30 in 3…2…1…

It’s 11pm on September 30, and in one hour I will officially be starting my first Whole 30. I’ve had my last grain, (does Panda Fried Rice even count as a grain?) I had my last dairy, (does Coldstone Ice Cream count as dairy?) and my last sip of wine…. Wait… Wait… Wait…. Okay, now. […]

RAYS OF LIFE: A Reflection on Balance

RAYS OF LIFE: A Reflection on Balance

10 Things I Am Crushing On This Week

10 Things I Am Crushing On This Week

#1  The Pope I am not Catholic, nor a big fan of organized religion, but I am enamored with Pope Francis. I love hearing what he has to say… like this week as he challenged Congress and the United Nations to treat humans and our environment better though our immigration and climate change policies. But […]

Calling Your Energy Back

  We leave pieces of ourselves everywhere. Quantum fibers of our essence; with people, with problems, with places. When we love something, like our family and friends or our favorite vacation hideaway, and we leave a soul print with them. When we are afraid or stressed about things, like our relationships, our jobs or our […]

Housecleaning Day!

Housecleaning Day!

Confession: Most days I absolutely LO-OO-OOVE cleaning. I actually get an itch in my gut to clean the house. It usually starts in a bad way… like because I found a hair on the bathroom floor and I can’t get it out of my head until I fully vacuum and mop. And it almost always occurs […]
