December’s Gifts: Refuge and Reflection

Of all the things I love about New Mexico, the relatively short winters hover near the top of the list (hey, I grew up in Nebraska, and spent a few years in Buffalo, NY.

Love in Action: Some Things You Can Do Now

I have been trying to write this post for several days, each day putting it off because I don’t know how to begin it.

NOVEMBER TOGETHER

For a very long time we have been shuffled into labels, political camps, gender roles and various identifications with our roles in our families and/or careers.  This process of identification usually simultaneously results in a sense of separateness, which often leads to increasing feelings of isolation and disconnection. We are in a unique time at this moment, where the current season of fall lends

Begin Again: 5 Ways to Create A Fresh Start

I’m writing this on a break from an epic kitchen-pantry-and-refrigerator clean-out. It’s been a great deal more satisfying (and time-consuming) than I’d expected. But I was inspired. The beginning of August marks the Celtic holiday of Lughnasadh, the traditional beginning of the Harvest season (believe me, I cannot get excited about cleaning if not for ritual’s sake!) It’s a new part of the yearly

I realized recently that about this time every year, I start to wonder if I’m coming down with some kind of summer bug.

It’s summer in the desert. It all makes sense now. Thankfully,

Remembering our Shared Humanity

Remembering Our Shared Humanity

This is one of those weeks I think my heart will always remember—though it would be easy to wish to forget.
