Charlotte Riots 2016

We’re having race riots here in Charlotte. Frankly, I’m surprised it hadn’t happened sooner. Last year a Black man whose car had broken down on the side of the road approached police for help. His hands were in the air, he announced himself, tried to explain his situation, and was shot dead on the spot. There’s no way that’s the first or last time something like this has happened here. Black men really...

Nostalgic Anticipation: On becoming Sporty 40

Yesterday, a very dear friend from Scotland shared this with me when I told her that in lieu of seeing Janet Jackson in concert in NYC last weekend (it was cancelled, due to her pregnancy), I had decided to quietly renew my 2012 vows to myself in a private ceremony at 7:32 this morning: “It would be highly symbolic and very meaningful to greet the dawn on the day of your birth and pledge your vows. Thousands and thousands of...

Greg Plitt: Rest in Power

This winter has whisked away many people close to my friends and clients. I have been seeing many more reports than usual about the friends, family members, and pets of people I know “cutting the silver cord” (as someone I know said in a text to me tonight). A couple weeks ago I had an unexpected health scare myself (more on that later). Then my favorite fitness icon, Gregg Plitt (a real life superhero), was killed in a...

Tempus fugit

I almost stepped on this lethargic beauty… Probably the last butterfly of the season for 2013. I fear it will die tonight on the first evening of freezing temperatures. I thought it a good idea to take a moment to reflect on the fleeting nature of time, life, and light.

He lives! Birthday 2013

To quote Mrs. Doubtfire, “Well, helloooooooooooo!” Yes, I am still alive. And I would like to make an observation: I rarely blog anymore, because I haven’t needed to. This space was a place for me to iron out some wrinkles (often as part of helpful conversations with readers who shared their insights with me), and hopefully help others iron their own vicariously. Sometimes I think I actually did just that. At any...

Yule, Randy, & Six Feet Under

The last week I have been blogging more than I have for months. It’s one of those times where everything starts coming together. There are no coincidences. Whether or not reality is orchestrated by an external intelligence, there is more than mere chance acting as a glue to hold all this together. So, let’s just talk in terms of alignment then… Just days ago I blogged about the mass shooting in Connecticut. Then...

A need for catapaulting

I have know idea why that particular turn of phrase came to mind. It’s just what I feel… I’m a stone, feeling hard, still, and heavy. I’m full of potential energy, but I need to explode, or more precisely to be exploded or thrown or something, to release my power. I feel like I need to move very quickly into another place; however, actively flying isn’t what I’m yearning for. Rather, I feel like I...

Happy belated Samhain!

So, it’s the new year for us on the Path (I do recognize that Muggles still have eight weeks to go before they catch up, but such is the nature of these situations). I admit candidly that I have not blogged enough for a long time, that I haven’t made enough time for reflection this last year. It’s been a busy, hectic, stressful cycle (for both pleasing and distressing reasons). That’s my only excuse: I just...

Spring 2012: Happy Ostara!

Today, although extremely frustrating in many ways, ended quite pleasantly. I was feeling blocked regarding a design process, but I finally got to speak with the director in charge, and so I feel I at least got to air my concerns. And that helps: Knowing that you at least got to communicate. What I did miss (while being worried about the various tasks I had delegated) was the majority of an extraordinarily beautiful day. I did come...

You are perfect as you are

It’s the holiday season, and that isn’t easy for me. There’s all sorts of family crap that happens (and many of you will be able to relate to that, I’m sure). I am thankful for a great many gifts/talents, people, situations, and opportunities in my life, and I acknowledge that far more often than once per year on a day designated Thanksgiving. With that in mind, what I was most thankful for these last few days...
