I’ve got openings for two new clients this April. If one of them is meant for you… let’s talk.

Lie Detector

Earlier this week I felt like crying. Truth be told, it wasn’t just a moment of feeling – it was actually two entire days of wanting to cry. The sky was crying on both of these days, with intermittent rain and clouds that were gray and swollen with precipitation wanting …

Remembering

I went to a dance class earlier this week. I wasn’t supposed to. I was supposed to be working – you know, being productive – but for whatever reason I had an invitation from my friend land right into a patch of open time. And I couldn’t say no, even …

A Noble Goodbye

I’ve been thinking a lot about death these days. It’s not a totally unusual experience for me, especially now. This is, after all, the “waning” time of year – the season of the crone – where we put our gardens to bed, give thanks for gifts received, and have the …

Touchstones

As is my ritual, I take a moment at the end of every month and reflect on what just happened – for me, in the context of what my clients are experiencing, or what I’m noticing happening in the world at large. It’s my way of making sense of  it …

Tricks for Rabbits

Here’s a confession: I can gobble up a chunk of time with meaningless shit faster than a Carolina crocodile can snarf down a toy poodle on a golf course. I’m not proud of it, but there it is. I suspect it’s because of my on-going love affair with busy. Okay, …

Reflections on September: Mini Cooper

September races onto the scene like a bright red mini cooper doing 80 down a country road. We know it’s coming, we hear the whine of its engine long before we actually see it, and then BLAM, it flies into our lives with a sense of urgency that has us …

Reflections on August: Go Big or Go Home

There is something undeniably “in your face” about August. Let’s face it – it’s a bit of a bully. As the last official month of summer, it’s the biggest kid on the playground prodding its pudgy little finger in our chests, saying, “Oh yeah, whataya gonna do about it?” We …
