June/July Reflections

At the June Solstice (the 21st this year) Spring blossoms into Summer, bringing the year’s longest daylight hours to the northern hemisphere. The “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer” call you to picnic, play ball, garden, hit the beach, or dive into a nearby lake. Even if vacation is not in the cards for you […]

May Reflections

  Tra la! It’s May, the lusty month of May. That lovely month when everyone goes blissfully astray … It’s May! It’s May! That gorgeous holiday when every maiden prays that her lad … will be a cad! — “The Lusty Month of May” Camelot by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe   The Celtic […]

March and April Reflections

Spring Equinox ushers in a season of striking contrast. Here in Boulder, CO, it was 75 degrees one day-and snowed the next.

Which seeds, planted in spring and nurtured through summer, have grown into nuggets of wisdom that can I collect now and integrate into my being?” This was for […]

January Reflections

I love January. On New Year’s Day I wake delighted that the darkest days are past, a new cycle awaits us, and sunset gets later every evening. In the winter, I’m typically in Boulder, CO, where there’s either a magnificent snowstorm or a mild sunny stretch that locals call “the January thaw.” This month is […]
