2017 My Year of Untethered Joy!

Ahhhhhh. A Year of New Beginnings!! And for this year, 2017, it is especially true! For in the science of numerology this is a "1" year, marking the beginning of a new cycle. 2016 was the end of a cycle being a '9" year (2+0+1+6=9). The number 9 is the last single digit number before the cycle starts over again - a new beginning. We still have until the first week of February to really release the rest and residue of anything we need to let go of, but most of those endings have already taken place and it's just a matter of "tidying up.


I find it incredibly awe-sum when I am mindful of my environment.Whether I'm sitting still, walking or running to an appointment, or driving - little messages are all around me - waiting to be heard and/or seen. Like today. I was on my way to the office to work with a client, but I was in no rush. So, I stopped to watch the sunrise - it was magnificent. The sun doesn't rush rising in the morning. It takes its time. No one or nothing can make it go slower or make it go faster. It just rises.  Watching the sunrise reminded me that everything happens in its own time.

The Full Moon and Cold Temperatures

I was dreading opening the back door...the windchill was 20 degrees below zero (or something like that)! But, just before heading upstairs to bed, I always let the dogs out for one last "potty call". It was then that I heard another "calling" - this one being between two owls. Despite the cold temperatures, I listened for a while before closing the door. What a beautiful gift that was! Thank you!

Then, this morning, as I opened the door to let the dogs out again - I was greeted by Grandmother Moon in all of her fullness.

I Will Be Presenting at the Dare To Be Aware Fair March 22, 2015!!!

Spending time in nature, appreciating it, and trusting it keeps us in balance. I will also be reading selections from my book, “If These Trees Could Talk Park 1:Stories of the Trees of Sunset Park".

If These Trees Could Talk, Park 1: Stories From the Trees of Sunset Park

I had fun at my first book signing this past Saturday!

The signing took place at Just Act Natural, a local small business that was celebrating it's 5-year anniversary! They sell Eco-friendly items and are true stewards of the Earth! I loved listening to the musicians that were there to play - some blues, folk, bluegrass - nice!

I've almost sold out of my first run of books and just ordered another 100 copies! I'm feeling very blessed! Thank you everyone for your love and support!

This book is a journey into the woods - offering words of wisdom from the trees themselves. This unique perspective allows the reader to remember what it was like when they could hear the voices of nature (before the adults in their lives told them they were foolish.) This book may be just what you need to give you the courage to step back into your child-like nature and encourage you to have your own conversations - whether in the woods with trees, or with any form of nature.
