The Moon Shines Brightly Tonight

Illuminating the leaves that are quickly
turning from hues of green to shades of beautiful and death

the darkness is coming when the moon ways in thin again
tomorrow and the next day we move further still from the sun

soon it's time to go underground
take what we learned this spring and summer and bury it with us
gratitude journal, hot pink sharpee and all
take notes and take stock of what we did or didn't do and edit, scotch tape
pause for a moment of reflection
rinse and repeat

The higher ups and planets upstairs did an amazing job of shaking things up
internally and globally
I can only imagine the board meeting to which the disagreement first began
then suddenly everything was in peril

as it is above, so it is below

Now the seeds they have harvested within us are to be reaped and of course eaten sparringly
because of the economy and our ever growing bottom line
We pick up the pieces and pretend things will be fixed once Santa comes with his bag of tricks
in the mean time, they - THEY -  retreat somewhere to vacation far far away and ponder on how they'll be back to fix us
when it's time
when their done fixing themselves over cosmic cocktails and the occasional hook up
look up to see
everything is still in peril

Rome has already burnt to the ground
down here
we're still kicking and screaming
despite any technological or architectural progress
which is always met with a thick, silver, double edged sword
that drowns us in the Ego we can't let go of

The calculations as to which things will inherently get better of course
depends on the one thing that's out of control
Nothing in our lives is as clear as the fact that we need to get clear
each and every single one of us
clear of self pity, self doubt, self loathing and of course of EGO
of each other
and finally
of the significant others that pollute the notion of anything else
but LOVE in our day to day

There is a need for a consciousness that is greater than
"what should be given to me & what I deserve".

There is deficit of silence and self discovery
of meditation and personal reflection
but hopefully in the dark season
when the snow takes to ground level and prohibits us from existing the way we want
we embark
on the journey underground
beneath our skin
and bury ourselves next to our own bones and listen
to the silence
of being still
and one
the ALL.


  1. Beautiful, reflective, expressive, and a perfect parallel analysis of the change in winter and how that correlates to the change of the self. <3

A Suicide Berceuse.

This is for you the broken hearted.This one is for you who can’t get out of bed and for you who may be finding it so damn hard to return the texts, emails and phone calls from anyone. 
This one is dedicated to those who having a hard time showing up because even thinking about showing up is too much energy. 
This one is for you who can’t seem to move on after the loss of a beloved. It’s for the ones whose days gone by are better than the days you’ve been wading through.This is for all of you who can’t catch a break financially, romantically or dream wise and wonder what it's all for.
The world has an immeasurable void in it. Constant pain inflicted from headlines or bylines is palpable. You’re unsure of your footing on our planet because the ground beneath you is unstable even when the sun shines otherwise. 
This one is for you who have contemplated at least once, perhaps even more than once about pressing the eject button on life. It’s here that you are in good company. It's…

4 Reasons Why Badmouthing Others is BAD For YOU.

I was talking today with a friend about the importance of words.  How you use them, positively, negatively any which way.  Words are like weapons.  Once you put them out there, they are pretty much impossible to take back.  Sure you can say you are sorry but it doesn't wipe the blood and guts off the floor from the initial bullet wound.  Forgiveness is key, but let's be mindful of our words from the get.  Dig?

Here's a repurposed blog to go along with those thoughts.

Everyone gets hurt. No one is perfect. People mess up. Mistakes are made. But the cross you bare when you badmouth someone else's questionable deeds or good fortunes, their life advances or personal tragedies is a very heavy one.

When you engage in loose lip service per say "warning" peers or anyone within earshot about someone or someone's "drama" or perhaps you seem to regurgitate the pain someone has caused you over and over to friends, strangers, clients, family members....wel…

The Sum of all Jitters

Monday, I leave my precious, beautiful and sacred bubble of Jim Thorpe for New York City to embark on my first week of Kundalini Yoga teacher training.  This learning adventure will stretch over the course of the next eight months. It's something that has been pulling at my heart for the last five years in terms of spiritual and physical evolution.

 And naturally with most new personal mega shifts or changes comes a tinge of fear. 
Yes, it's normal.  Don't use my words against me. But the 17 year old who lives somewhere inside of me sits up, batting her eyes so that I take notice.  She thanks me for honoring our future. She is excited for possibility and for helping others, always. But she bites her lip "even though we've come so far regarding our body image, even though we've done so much self love/self esteem work over the years, I'm still scared to wear white pants."

And I feel her..

It's not because I stain every white piece of clothing I o…
