Drivers Seat

Yep being in the drivers seat was not about being independent or flying solo, it meant being a contributing member of the household. Helping the family get from point A to point B and freeing up my dad’s time.  Drivers seats as adults don’t always equate with freedom and being able to do what you…

Lost in your senses

Close your eyes and take a deep breath – what smell, scent brings you back to a time when your body, mind and soul was at peace?   Have you ever explored the possibilities of aromatherapy?    It’s time to take yourself outside and place yourself in nature.   So much is possible!    Today’s walk…

Finding Me ~ The Journey of Self Exploration

It has taken me years to find what makes me – me! Life is an adventure and if we stop striving for a deeper richer sense of self – does that mean we are content? Does that mean we have given up? Does that mean we are counting the days til our demise? I have…

Lost in the fog

Did you ever reach a point of burn-out. Frustrated with youself, with what you are doing and need to just step off the daily routine? It’s been a year of change, turmoil and figuring life out. What we knew as our normal is no longer available. We have jumped in with two feet and created…

One year ago

One year ago I dropped off a dear friend at Chester County Hospital for an outpatient procedure. No one was permitted inside, I could not even wait to drive them home. I was told the nursing staff would call when I was to return. The morning was covered in dense fog and at at 6…

Into the mist

My soul comes alive with adventure. During this season travel has been diminished, but the need to see, be and do has not. Family brought me to Maine, but the beauty of the area it calls me forth. The hurricane was driving north through the states, while I stood on the coast. There was no…

Late Lunch

As I headed outside, a turkey vulture swooped low beside my front door. It made me stop in my tracks. But as I moved forward, there was something amazing just sitting there waiting for me. This majestic creature was sitting there ~ a Hawk playing with a garden snake He knew I was there. He…

The Day the Doors were Closed

We sat in silence on this Sunday. The churches were empty as never before. We are sheltered in place. A church is more than just a building, it is a place where people come together. Many generations gather, elders marvel at the energy of the youngsters, while parents get a much needed place of solice….

Crisp Real & Raw

Days like today call out to me to be one with nature.  The sky so blue and clear, the sun light bounces off the water and the contrast of the dark wood of the trees jump at a chance to entertain me!    The morning light gives an extra special sheen to everything it touches….

Fire Sign

In a search to understand my love of shapes and textures in nature, I am naturally drawn to the trees.   There are some that just disappear in and among the trails that I hike.  Then there are others that continue to speak and draw me in. When you research horoscopes, I fall under the Aries…

Majestic

These past few years have been filled with self discovery; and with self discovery comes acknowledging what calms me, what inspires me and who is my authentic self.   Growing up I was a dancer and identified as such.   I never participated in skiing or any kind of organized sports.   But a dog was always apart…

Dance with nature

I have hiked this path many times and it calls to my soul.   Today was different, the snow fell yesterday and the sun was shining through the trees so off we went.   This was an adventure to say the least, tucked back in the woods the pathways were covered with snow and the deeper…
