I wasn’t going to write today. I haven’t been in the spirit of it. I haven’t felt like I have much to say. And, for the first time maybe ever in my life, I’m not forcing myself to do, to produce, to go-go-go. I’m allowing myself to just be. That said, this is not the… Continue reading Speak.
I felt some relief when I saw a post from Glennon Doyle this morning about how she hasn’t written a word in a while. I know better than to seek validation from the outside but there was something comforting in seeing that the most-talked about writer right now is also a bit blocked. I can… Continue reading Lighten Up
You know that person who’s just… kind, genuine, everybody’s buddy? I do. He’s Rob Cohn. Rob radiates compassion. He’s an excellent listener and a scholar of wellness. He’s been on a journey of fasting, a topic that fascinates me because… frankly, it scares me. I, like many others, have an emotional and mental attachment to… Continue reading Fasting to Freedom

Cass and I were wrapping up a phone call as I turned on the laptop. I told her I was going to pick a card… Continue reading 50 Things
Around this time every year, I publish a story that I wrote in 2016… a reminder to some, new knowledge to others, about why Rescue exists. We won’t stop until they are all safe and loved. Found but Still Lost I am the initial point of contact when someone emails email@example.com. This month, the number… Continue reading Throwback: Found but Still Lost
As for the news… Get the facts from your trusted source then shut. it. off. And stay home, if you can, please. Behold the possibility of the days. Here are some of my favorite resources for breaks and self-care while working from home: The incredibly relatable and generous Adriene Mischler, star of Yoga with Adriene,… Continue reading Resources for Peace
The idiom “worried sick” has been around since the 1800s. Worry, stress, anxiety, and fear can lower your immune system. It’s reasonable to concerned as there are so many unknowns right now… but worrying yourself sick over the current situation (or over anything) does not serve you or serve the world!

I have several people I think of as mentors in different areas of my life, some I actually know and work closely with and others who are Friends/Mentors in My Head.
