When you can’t breathe, sing

I love those stories.  I know that the brain can work in many ways that are a complete mystery to us.  Here …

Finding the core

Recently I found this in a bag of baby carrots:

As I’ve mentioned a few times in the last month or so, I’m going through a period of deep introspection, processing and healing.

When I saw this carrot, it seemed like the perfect embodiment of what I’ve been doing: going straight the core and …

Stronger than before

Before getting on to tonight’s guest post, I want to acknowledge the miracle of safety.

The right words at the right time

What a week.

Last week I wrote about some deep processing and healing that I’d been through as a result of a book I’d read, Rita Gigante’s The Godfather’s Daughter.

I was excited to start reading it as soon as it arrived. I read the first three pages of the introduction…

And I had a total and complete meltdown.

Today is one of those days.  I’ve gone back to re-read what I wrote last night at least five times.  Each time I integrate it a little more.  …

Desperately Seeking Dysfunction

My dad has been on my mind and in my conversation a lot over the last several weeks.  That is usually a signal that another “divine opportunity for healing” is right around the corner. Oh joy.

My growing up years were dominated by my father’s alcoholism.  He was very high-functioning in the world and many …
