Charismatic leaders and their charmed followers – I’ve been trying to make sense of this dynamic for my entire life.

I’ve seen hypocrisy up-close-and-personal, having felt the devastating effects of betrayed trust, having witnessed broken followers – some blameless victims and others self- or other-blaming.

Pink Moon

The Pond -- Mary Oliver

You think it will never happen again Then, one night in April

the tribes wake trilling.

You walk down to the shore.

Your coming stills them,

but little by little the silence lifts until song is everywhere

and your soul rises from your bones and strides out over the water.

It is a crazy thing to do -

for no one can live like that, floating around in the darkness over ...

Feeding Your Demons Process – Abbreviated Version

Nine Relaxation Breaths

Take nine deep relaxation breaths with long exhalations: for the first three breaths, breathe in and bring the breath to any tension in the body releasing it with the exhalation. For the second three breaths, inhale into any emotional tension, feel where you hold it in your body and release it with the exhalation. And lastly, breathe into any mental tension. Feel where you hold nervousness, worries or mental blockages in your body and release them with the exhalation

Please Celebrate my 60th Birthday with(out) Me

This photograph was taken 20 years ago at my 40th birthday party. I’m the bald one and this is my beautiful family! I wasn’t expected to make age 41. Now I’m turning 60.

Chemotherapy failed me in 1996 and I haven’t had any since, but relied mainly on Iscador, anthroposophic medicine and a variety of healing allies. It’s been a wonderful life and I’m grateful for it, but glad to know it’s passing.

Everything I know about food and eating I learned in Kindergarten. Say grace, be kind, share, eat all the food on your plate (starving children in China and India) and boycott grapes. Okay, the UFW grape boycott came later, around the time of lessons on Commu...

Being an Under in the Land of Over

Here I am – underweight, underworked and underemployed (okay, unemployed), under-educated, cheap/thrifty/conscious, going under with cancer.

Here I am – living in a land where people tend to be overworked, overscheduled, overstressed, overspent, overly consuming of resources, overweight, over-educated, over-qualified and so over it all!

The surging of vulnerability is not evidence that something is wrong with you. It does not mean anything about your worth as a person, or that you have failed. It means you are alive.
