Our atheist in the room struggles for but a moment with the term “higher power.” I could not visualize a thing until she gently protested the term. The moment she was vulnerable and admitted her position my higher power appeared. It was lovely, and such a gift. Why not look to our own inner being […]

I have had this little card for at least 15 years. I found it at a book store and immediately it had meaning for me. It has traveled with me to each home, and found it’s place somewhere near me. I thought I had lost it after packing an 18ft truck full of boxes and […]

My sister calls – she shares a whirlwind of new life information. “Hmmm,” I say, “what a journey you are on. Any chance it will bring you to Florida?” She snickers warmly, then sighs. She is at a crossroads, and like so many of my clients, I hear the tumblings of mental feet on the […]
