Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Roots and Branches


Keeping things simple, here on my blog today as my daughter and I prepare to leave for a journey toward deep healing,  roots to branches.

She starts what my husband refers to as "PT boot camp," The Mayo Family Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Center at Children’s Hospital Boston this Monday. I'll be staying with her at a nearby hotel.  (I wrote more about this here). Parental participation and education is integrated into the program. I’m so grateful that my breathing is improving and I will be able to be as present as possible for her.

Breath by breath each day unfolds anew.
