Spontaneous Summer Sabbatical

Hello sweet friend,

You may have noticed my silence for some time now. I have been busy–exciting busy!

Blessings everywhere!

Needless to say, I have paused my reverence offerings so I could manage everything swirling around me and calling my name. As I write this update to you, I am cat sitting a delightful Calico named Moxie in a treetop cabin on a woodsy hill in the West Marin town of Fairfax. I am in heaven! I plan to read, journal, read, hike, sketch, nap, read some more, and watch the hawks glide through the trees. Did I mention reading?

As I write this, exciting renovations are occurring at our new loft, and if things go as planned, our new dream space in a stimulating artist community will be ready by the first of the year. In the meantime, I am planning to resume my beautiful reverence offerings come September. You will be the first to know!

With reverence, we are consciously present to the world around us. Our presence is always our gift.

We bring our special presence to our environment, our relationships, our body, our world. Always we bring our joy, our gratitude, and the beauty of our singular essence.

Value your presence. Cultivate your honest, authentic presence. Bless with your presence. Be discriminating with regards to the presence you choose to surround yourself with.

What is one thing you can do right now to nurture and cultivate your luminous presence? Where and with whom have you experienced a sense of peace, balance and comfort this season? What are the blessings that have come your way?

Here’s what I’m treasuring right now…

Brentwood corn, vine-ripened tomatoes, fresh fruit pies and cobblers, the melons, the berries, the peaches and nectarines, farmers’ markets, the creativity of Bay Area chefs, the crickets, bees, butterflies, summer excursions, summer walks with Mo and Baby Sweet (beloved family pets), old and new family and friends, sunsets, the night sky, and of course, the glorious summer sun.

I’ll check back with you in a few! Wishing you endless summer blessings,
