27 June, 2017

Have you ever heard of the concept of Ho’oponopono? It’s the Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness.

You repeat: I forgive you. I’m sorry. Thank you. I love you. Powerful stuff. Today I made a list of 25 things I need…

The Big Stuff

1 June, 2017

So much has changed in the last year, in the last six months. My entire belief system has been challenged and shifted. My understanding of the world around me has opened up and become both more clear and more wondrous. I used to feel very cynical and I used to consider myself an atheist. I was so sure that God did not exist. I didn’t understand prayer, at least in the traditional sense. And yet, I thought I was open-minded.…

I can’t believe it’s already September. This summer flew by and I did almost nothing on my Summer To-Do List. I did move into a brand new apartment that has a balcony, but I haven’t used it yet since it’s been so hot and humid outside.

The music of Lucifer. Changing up my hairstyle. It felt appropriate to chop it off on the first day of summer. Summer sun, here I come! This summer playlist I made in Spotify, featuring lots of Mumford & Sons: Stargazing & Sangria. Seeing Peter Gabriel perform live with Sting on the Rock Paper Scissors tour. Highlights: Peter Gabriel singing If You Love Someone, Set Them Free in half time to the groove of Beck’s Where It’s At. Encore of Sledgehammer. Hounds of…
