February 2018 Forecast

Message for February 2018 If we take a moment to step back to look at the bigger picture of our lives, we begin to see the beliefs, thoughts and ideals that have shaped and carved our passage through time, and we can see the pathways we have walked and the avenues we have explored, as well as the dead-ends we have faced and the new terrain we have discovered; we can see how we have evolved and grown through the good times and the bad, and we gain a stronger sense of self as a result.

Living in the Ruins

I’ve thought a lot lately about pain, depression and my health challenges. I’ve opened myself up and laid myself bare. In the process, I’ve learned a great deal about myself, my life and my beliefs as I’ve journeyed through the up’s and down’s.

2018 Yearly Forecast

Message for 2018 I think a great many of us will be relieved to see the end of 2017; it was a year of stormy extremes, both within and in the world around us. It was as though the very fabric of our being was being ripped up in order to be re-shaped and re-defined. There were times of profoundly difficult emotions, yet there were also moments of great joy as well. It’s often easy to see all the challenges as they shine out like beacons in the seemingly linear landscapes of the journey of our lives, yet, there is
