Speaking to Mamas in Prison: A Recap + Release

Speaking to Mamas in Prison: A Recap + Release

Yesterday I did my second talk for The Family Preservation Project Speaker Series inside Coffee Creek, the Oregon State women’s prison. My talk is “Telling Your Life as a Love Story” and I try to illuminate all of the ways the prison system is force feeding them a narrative of shame and regret that will keepContinue Reading

Cannabis + Community + Connection

Cannabis + Community + Connection

As you’ve likely noticed by now, I’ve dipped my toes into the waters of the cannabis industry. Yup. Weed. Shifting my own perception of cannabis from “drugs” to “medicine” was a powerful catalyst. It allowed me to use it differently, pay attention to dosing, to my environment, and to my interaction with different strains, and methodsContinue Reading

Roots + Roadtripping

Roots + Roadtripping

Omg, you guys. HELLO. I don’t even know what to do with myself right now. You should see my outfit. I’m wearing my Rocky Balboa sweats with a poncho and a baseball cap. I’ve been gone so long I forgot how to do regular life. Though, arguably, I’m doing it just right with this getContinue Reading

Love Might Not Be *All* You Need, But Good Grief It’s Important: On Emotional Hunger

Love Might Not Be *All* You Need, But Good Grief It’s Important: On Emotional Hunger

Last week, as part of an ongoing invitation to overhaul your definition of hunger so we can develop a more allied, than adversarial, relationship with our own hungers, I wrote about physical hunger. This week I’m writing about emotional hunger. In nutrition school I learned an interesting way of conceptualizing nourishment as “primary and secondaryContinue Reading

Prison Work + The Truth of this “Altruism”

Prison Work + The Truth of this “Altruism”

    When I was indicted for a federal crime (conspiracy to distribute five thousand hits of ecstasy) and facing a probable prison sentence, I was scared.   Fear was my primary feeling, but not because I was afraid to be shanked or raped or slapped in the yard. I was afraid that my babyContinue Reading

(Not) Juggling it All

(Not) Juggling it All

Recently a dear old friend commented that he admired how I “juggle everything” and that he would love to get together while he is in town and learn how I do it all. I adore him for that. I adore him, period. I’ve known him for over ten years. We met at a yoga retreatContinue Reading

Update + Upcoming!

Update + Upcoming!

Sometimes I get so behind on writing to you that the things I want to tell you start to stack up into a year’s worth of posts and I freeze and wonder how I’ll ever write again. So, I’m going to do an enumerated update post on the last couple of months and what toContinue Reading

43 Things I’ve Learned in 43 Years

43 Things I’ve Learned in 43 Years

  It’s my actual birthday today. I’m 43. I believe the photo above was my 4th birthday. Clearly, it was the 70s. My mother made that dress to match the decor. Anyway, I figured I’d make one of those ubiquitous lists of things I’ve learned in that time. At first it was hard to think ofContinue Reading

Doing Less To Get More Done

Doing Less To Get More Done

When I was a little kid being raised by a single mother, much like my own son, I spent summers tucked away in the gardens at my grandparent’s farm in the lush Ozark Mountains of Southwest Missouri. My grandparents, raised in the Great Depression, were like the MacGyvers* of life, living on a tiny pensionContinue Reading

TGFI (Thank God For Internet): Vol 18

We are not only what we eat, we are all that we consume. We are so fortunate to have so much information available, but discernment in what we feed our brains is paramount to producing good ideas, and to being open enough to understanding the experiences of others.  So here is where I hope to serve yourContinue Reading
