Finding Ease When Things Get Difficult

Yet, again, I find myself taking a lesson from my yoga mat and applying it to the real world. In yoga, we refer to Sthira/Sukha. How strength and softness can exist simultaneously. You can feel both the hardness of a pose and you can melt into it's difficulty with breath. With softness. With ease. And,... Continue Reading →

Saying Yes to My Goal

I’m happiest when I'm creating. The after part…editing, polishing, perfecting…that’s fun too because I'm making my story come alive for future readers. But, the business side? The blurb…oh goodness the blurb…the social media campaign…the learning of each and every platform… It has taken the wind from my sails and made the publishing of my first... Continue Reading →

How to Choose What to do First?

I've entered a world I know nothing about. It completely brings to life what I learned in yoga teacher training not too long ago. There is so much I don't know. And, although on some days that makes me want to throw my hands up and give up. On most days, I remember that I... Continue Reading →

Rainy Days Were Made for Writing

It is a grey, damp day in my corner of the world. Most people around me carry on mumbling about April showers and how sick they are of the weather. When you live in a place ruled by the four seasons, the weather plays a definite factor in how people live and how people connect,... Continue Reading →

Suo Jure. Wait. What?

What does this mean? in his/her own right  —used especially following the title of a noblewoman to specify that she holds the title independently of her husbandMerriam-Webster Dictionary I love the idea of women having some kind of opportunity to be themselves in a world so defined by patriarchy. So, when I started toying with the... Continue Reading →
