Monday is my 46th birthday.
Lest you think that I’m distraught about that number creeping ever closer to 50, you can think again. Although it defies the prevalent attitude of our times (a quick peek around me shows a world fiercely intent on resisting the inevitable aging process), I’m perfectly okay with leaving the twenty-somethings to their youth. Give me the experiences, the understanding, and maybe even a wee bit of the wisdom that comes with age, and I’m a super happy lady. It’s … Continue reading
Hey there, guys. Do you remember last week (after I spent a good long while talking about God), when I told you that today’s post was going to explore the subject of my guru? Well…yeah. Sorry, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen quite yet. It will–it most definitely will be a subject I’ll happily dig into–but right now I’m so hopelessly distracted by my most recent project that I decided to put it off for just a little bit longer. Mostly because Guru is a subject near and dear to my heart, and my fragmented mind … Continue reading
My intention for this week’s post was to start answering questions in my vegan series. I had a thought all picked out, my facts were checked, my ideas were organized…and then?

A really lovely and peaceful and joyful whisper, but still a whisper. And it’s a decidedly surprising feeling to be on the other side of it already.
And yet here I am, thoroughly … Continue reading
In happy anticipation of the upcoming holiday it somehow feels mandatory that I share an autumn-themed recipe with you all. And if you can think of anything that goes better with Thanksgiving celebrations than pumpkins and spice, make sure to let me know, because I think they just sum up the whole beautiful season. Throw in some apples, crisp winds, crunchy leaves, and honking geese, and I think we might have accidentally ended up in my own personal vision of heaven. Pure. Happiness.
But enough about the glory of fall, because you know I could go on all day. And … Continue reading
