a practice: releasing 2020

It recently occurred to me that in addition to processing the multiplicity of overlapping crises that erupted in our personal lives, interpersonal lives, vocational lives, political lives and social lives during 2020, many of us will also be responding to and feeling the weight of the impact of the decisions we made in response to...

onward through 2021

2021 should be a mandated global gap year! 2020 burnt me out. I. Am. Not. Ready. But I will show up for myself and my commitments, and others and community. I’m not promising that folks will get my very best. But, I promise folks will get the very best of what I have in that... Continue Reading →

reflecting on community

A sweet friend of mine nominated me to join the Life is Good Facebook challenge.  The task was to find joy in the midst of the chaos by posting 10 pictures for 10 days of things that give me joy with no explanation. I accepted the challenge.  As I was digging through old pictures, I found myself... Continue Reading →

reflecting on Good Friday

On Good Friday, I spent most of my day reflecting on the Cross, not just as a practice of tradition and ritual but because my spirit was weary. I read the Good Friday chapter in Seasons of Faith and Conscience: Explorations in Liturgical Direct Action. Kellerman, the author, reminds his reader that Jesus “goes up... Continue Reading →
