An Ode to Thanks-Giving

Many of the poorest people I know are actually the happiest. Their days may be filled with strife of how to put a warm meal on the table, but once they settle down for dinner, they always give thanks. They know the value of that meal and the value of their family. That's because money doesn't feed the soul. This Thanksgiving, I have been thinking very much about the soul and how it should be…

The Ballerina

I was sitting outside a coffee shop this afternoon, when the radio started playing a beautiful song. My mind searched for the name of it and then suddenly I remembered.

Talking to Trees

I talked to a tree today. I know I probably sound crazy to you right now, but I talked to a tree, and I heard it talk back. To fully understand this story, you must rewind through my life to take a glance at these precious trees. When I was a child, I would sit in my favorite loquat tree outside my home and sing songs among the birds. It was my favorite hiding spot.…

An Ode to My Roots

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I am walking through a field of dragonflies. The hum of cicadas lingers in the air. Today I am spending my lunch break here, with my heels digging into the dirt. It doesn’t smell particularly nice and it’s hot, but I know this is exactly where I need to be in this moment in time. A wise woman told me this weekend that I need to spend time building my roots. She said I am…
