This past month has been monumental in many ways for all of us. I hope you are well and good, safe and healthy. It's been a long time since we've connected and now, more than ever, is a time to say hello. I care about you. You matter to me. I am grateful to know you. I appreciate you. I acknowledge you. I value you. And, I miss you.
In all honesty, I am very much an extroverted introvert and prefer to be more reclusive and quiet and private than you might think. I need lots of time to process things and I'm better at sharing myself when I have had lots of downtime.
When I was living in New York, my processing time was limited and my downtime was distracted and after 24 years in the city, I wanted to create something new for my Self. I had felt that I had stopped growing and evolving in New York City. I wanted nature, and I wanted something else. What that something else was exactly was to be determined. But, one thing was clear: my future Self was calling me forth and I listened.
So, after a period of time of exploration in seeking that "something else" with intentional vision quests to find the right next spot including✈️ trips to Vermont, Florida, Washington, Texas, Belize, and Puerto Rico, I found my happy place and moved to the Northern California coast, bought a Treehouse and started a new career in wine sales. Most of this you may know, and there are so many stories to laugh and cry about during the last 4 years since I've moved to California. It was NOT a light undertaking on ANY level, but, those stories are for another time.
For now, in this moment, I am dramatically shifting, again, and It's time, for me, perhaps for all of us, to come out of my place of comfort and hiding, and stretch past my constructed boundaries, to connect and help. My heart and soul thrives on serving others and being purposeful.
Our personal and global healing for ourselves, for each other, for our communities and society depend on our compassionate and kind solidarity. I hear John Lennon in my head singing, "Come together! Right now! Over me!" and I imagine the song being about Mother Earth. I've been wondering what the revolution of our times would look like and, it seems, here it is.
This feels like a massive awakening of consciousness and compassion for all sentient beings. We're in an epic storm and how we weather through it will be another story for sharing. It's been brewing for decades and the waves are huge. Who seems prepared to ride them? The artists, philosophers, teachers, healers, and creators, who have been waiting and praying and preparing for this time for decades. I am witnessing with awe and wonder and curiosity at the beauty and hope and transformation. It's like surfers who have patiently been wading in the ocean and, at last, the time as come to be fully expressed and ride this tsunami-like wave of vibration.
For some, this time is a great gift and for others it is a bad dream. The reality is here. The future is now. I've always said that "retro is the new wave", meaning that there would be a time that we would all retreat and renew and recalibrate.
The future is Now.
And so what do we do besides wax poetic or sit in states of panic watching the dreadful news or watch Netflix movies?
As I mentioned, many people have been waiting for this time and preparing for this time and, for me, I am ready. I am here to help. I am here to heal. I am here to learn. I am here to serve.
There's a higher frequency to tap into now and fear, my love, will make you sick. Panic and worry and obsessively watching or listening to the news propaganda will make you sick. Believing that others have power over your mind and body will make you sick.
It's been my lifetime journey to study the human condition in all its glory and all its sadness. I thank all the plants, stones, animals, people, friends, family and strangers, as well as all the shared experiences that have helped and healed me, physically, emotionally and spiritually. My her-story has been a rollercoaster of success and dismay and I have excelled to high places only to drop down and unearth the depths of my deepest shadows, dealt with them, with me, healed myself and risen, again and again and again. The process of dissolution and evolution is always and forever, but it gets easier and lighter and more fluid with practice.
I hope that coming together and sharing the teachings will bring comfort and joy, as well as awaken a Spirit in you to be a beacon of light and strength and hope. The world needs you to be healthy and whole.
Let's raise our vibration and frequency for healing and evolution. It is being asked of us now. Your health and happiness is essential to everything.
We ARE all connected.

It was first grade and the teacher asked us to draw a picture of what the future would look like. We were studying science and remembering the Man on the Moon.
July 20, 1969 when Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin formed the American crew that landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle.
I was 8 months old sitting in a high chair mushing food into my mouth with a television behind me while my parents were riveted to the screen honoring this momentous occasion in our history (and documenting the moment on film. My father was in art school!)
I drew a forest 🌲 Everyone else in my class drew spaceships and martians. Almost fifty years later, these two worldviews are being merged and somehow this mermaid landed in a Treehouse.
