Mindful and Meditative Mondays #9

It’s been a stressful few weeks here, which for me culminated in that crazy combo of eclipse, Equinox and new moon energy at the end of last week.  Did anyone else’s head feel like it was just going to pop?  I am a sensitive Pisces and probably felt it more than most, but I think… Continue reading Mindful and Meditative Mondays #9

30 Days of Thanks 2014 – Day 22

Today I’m thankful for a leisurely morning – to eat slowly, to shower after a proper breakfast, to get adorned with robot and mermaid stickers, to listen to tunes on Pandora and to dance….

Friday Night’s Alright for Writing (#20) Staycations, sickness and soul-searching

Hello! The exclamation point doesn’t really reflect my mood – which is more chill than it’s been all week…returning from vacation to work really had me feeling like I had a permanent case of the Monday’s. I am also going on nearly 2 weeks of sickness here (me, and then Maya) – because what would… Continue reading Friday Night’s Alright for Writing (#20) Staycations, sickness and soul-searching
