Seasons of Home

Posted On Jul 14 2016 by

I read that the Japanese have 22 seasons.  I don’t care if it’s true – I adopted it.  I suggest you do as well.  Not 22 seasons, but look into your heart and see what seasonal elements touch you.  It’s a way to recover and feel into places you love. For example: You may be familiar with the poignantly brief Cherry Blossom Time and how the Japanese celebrate it. Every day I walk through beautiful places.  As I write this, I am enjoying Dogwood season.  As I walk by the lavenders in Lavender season, I caress the flowers to leave …

“What’s the name of your studio?”  I gently inquire. “Huh?” you wonder. “What’s the name of your studio?  What do you call the place where you do your creative work? “You do have a place to do art and to work on creative projects don’t you?” If you want to build your right brain, and I assure you that you do, then you need to have a studio. It needn’t be more than a flat surface in the corner of a room stocked with cool pens where you can doodle.  But setting aside space gives this aspect of your life …


Nature Rx

Posted On Jun 9 2016 by

Enjoy these two fun videos.  They’re tongue-in-cheek spoofs of the omnipresent pharmaceutical ads on TV. Spoofs they are, but they advertise a real benefit that research incontrovertibly supports.  That’s cool but more importantly – your common sense will recognize the truth. Fact: Nature heals you.  Just like medicine, only  better. : ) My New Book in Progress I’m writing a book with the working title – Finding Home – How the Love of Place Restores You.  I’ll tell you more about this cool book in later posts.

Deepen Your Topophilia – Find Heaven

Posted On May 12 2016 by

Deepen Your Topophilia & Find Heaven I love this small park, really, just this small section of the small park by the lake. I know the crows who visit, the squirrels that hop and zip, the robins singing and hunting, the sound of the waves gently lapping or crashing in winter storms, the low clouds zooming north along the lake, the sunrise peaking over the Cascades, the beaver chewed trees, the beavers passing through, the transcendent chirping of the widgeons, the honking I hear long before the Canada geese land, rippling through the water. I’ve watched the eagle spook the raft …

Quick examples of painful stories – “I can’t do anything right.” “I’m such a failure.” “Nobody will ever love me.” “I have such ugly darkness in …

Sabbatical Log

Posted On Mar 11 2016 by

Sabbatical Log People wonder what I do on my many sabbaticals.  Here’s what I did over the first two weeks in March. First, what is a sabbatical?  Sabbatical relates to Sabbath which in turn means rest.  The Sabbath and Sabbaticals set time aside so people can enjoy themselves and explore their connection to God.  For me, it’s about a period of time to connect to the Sacred more deeply. This doesn’t mean a time of solemn fasting and deprivation, but a time of joy and play.  Typically, I spend more time outdoors. As you may know, my most recent book, …

Big Magic I tried to read massive bestseller, Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.  I didn’t get very far.  So unless my friend, TA, hadn’t passionately recommended Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth G, I would have missed it. Further, TA recommended I listen to it as an audio book because Liz reads it.  It feels like an encouraging conversation with an intimate friend especially if she talks directly into your ears through ear buds. I have recommend Big Magic to many clients, my daughters, and Suzanne.  I’m on my second time through. First, the book is for …
