The Space Beside MeI reach out to the space besides meseeking a hold, the residual heatthat memorializes a once connectionthat is no longer an anchor.The space beside me once occupied in totalnow resonates with the filaments of my mind.Dense flashes piercing my heart,until they pile up in a wash of vinegar.The space beside me once [...]

Everywhere that I look is celebration.  Within our domestic household, we celebrated Easter and rebirth and then a few days later my youngest made her turn into a teenager.  Outside, I see all kinds of celebration with the very Irish green grass growing at an alarming rate and the nodding tulips hiding their true colors [...]

What a delicious practice it was this past Tuesday.  Carmen invited me to join you in the first restorative pose and I felt so grounded from there on.  I thought about energy as I relaxed in the Therapeutic Spinal pose and how we can manage our energy using such practices like restorative and breathing.  What [...]

Here - PresentSo with the monks gone and the last bit of colorful sand swept up by the brooms and the creek's current, the studio seems a bit empty.  The whole idea of the mandala was about impermenance and non-attachment to things, people, ideas.  The dissolution ceremony was beautiful, moving and ended in a swirling [...]

My Issue with DoingI am going to write a memoir someday with the above title. I am a 'Doer', less of a 'be'er' (I know a 'be'er is not a word).   I come from a long line of people who are always busy and always have a project to work on.  I used to [...]

It was a bittersweet class yesterday.  I know that I need a short break from teaching restorative but I will miss this group of wonderful students ever so much. Some of you go to my regular classes but there is something very special about the group coming together in a restorative practice.  I have seen [...]

I am finally beginning to feel that Spring has arrived and will remain for the duration of her season.  I think that I have transitioned.  Both Mother Nature and I took our own sweet time to change over from Winter.  I still had some winter projects to accomplish, and she had a few more cold, [...]
