a writer and suicide loss survivor. I write words of hope and heart to help you through hard times. From poetry to practices, it’s all love. Take what you need. Even if life’s pretty good these days, there’s something here for you.
Art prints, meditations, books. I believe in making things with heart, things that last a lifetime and impact your life for the better. Thoughtful, helpful, a joy to give and receive. The way it should be.
Judith Espinosa wrote The Awakening to help others who've endured great loss, illness, and heartbreak of any kind. People like you and me, who'd rather lay claim to this new life than live the rest of our days being victims of our circumstances. I’m happy and grateful to be able to share her poem here in full, with you.
Your word for 2020 is an umbrella word for how you want to feel most of the time and what you want to experience. It’s a touchstone for when to say, “Hell yes!” and when to say, “No, thank you.” Since my word for 2020 is MAGIC, I'm sharing my Manifesto for Magic with you. In case you want more magic in your life, too.
Whatever's flipped your life upside down this year, now you're here. You've been planted somewhere new; actually, something new has been planted in you. A seed. And you decide how you nurture it, water it, weed it, let it root & bloom. You get to decide, here & now, how it unfurls & how you grow with it, through it.
If you want to do more than just make it through, get my Hope Letters. It’s the best kind of email. The kind that keeps you going, whether your life feels like a mess or a miracle today.
