Staying Calm in the Chaos

Staying Calm in the Chaos

No matter where you are in the world right now, Covid-19 is on your mind and most likely affecting your life. Those of us in the San Francisco Bay Area are ordered to stay home and avoid anyone we do not live with; no work as normal, no events, no school. This seems to be the […]

I might get a house to move into this spring.

I might get a house to move into this spring.

The house building process felt like it had slowed to a standstill this last month, but as usually happens when we persevere, the pace picked up again. We’ve gotten electricity, plumbing and insulation all complete and Sheetrock is going in this week. I might even have kitchen cabinets by the end of next week.  And […]

Happy love day

Happy love day

When I was young(er) I wanted Valentine’s Day to be special. I wanted someone special to surprise me with flowers or candy or something sweet. And I remember feeling disappointed more times than I can count that no one did what I wanted. Somewhere along the way, I realized that it wasn’t someone else responsibility […]

Where to put your creative energy?

Where to put your creative energy?

Creativity is one of the main drivers in my life- whether it’s professionally or personally.  I was a full time artist and art teacher years ago.

Crying over electrical boxes and starting again

Crying over electrical boxes and starting again

I hope your New Year is off to a great start, but if it’s not, remember you can start again. Each day, each minute, each breath is a chance to begin again. I’m learning and re-learning that with each part of the house construction project I tackle. I think something is going to go one […]

Can the holidaze be a sane and happy time?

Can the holidaze be a sane and happy time?

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the United States. Thanksgiving is the kick off to the winter holiday season. So before you’ve eaten lovely food and spent warm and fun times with family and friends, I wanted to take a moment to help you prepare for the holidays. In our culture, the winter holiday […]

Surrender or Stay the Course?

Surrender or Stay the Course?

You know those mornings where everything seems to go wrong?  Of course, because it seems that everyone has one from time to time. Well, I had one this week and it went something like this. Wake up ready for a happy day, only to discover cat pee on the kitchen mat after I stepped in […]

Lessons in Patience

Lessons in Patience

Last year about this time my partner, Peter, and I decided we were ready to move forward on the remodel we’ve been wanting to do to our house since we moved in years ago. The roof has leaked for too long, the bathroom floors are rotting away from water damage and my pink laminate counter […]

My hearts desires are overflowing my time. Happy Equinox

My hearts desires are overflowing my time. Happy Equinox

I was on a coaching call with a client last month and we developed the idea that we have a heart of desires bigger than our time capacity. It’s kind of like having eyes bigger than your stomach. We explored that one of the hardest parts of being a passionate, driven person is having to choose between […]
