ADVENTURE

After taking a quick trip to the neighbor island for supplies, I was reminded of the importance of adventure. Doing new things can introduce you to new people and experiences and this is often very expansive. Because of a small decision I made to have a hammock on my balcony, I’ve been led to the - Read More -

STAND STILL: REVISITED

Recently, a kind reader of this website came across a quote that I posted in 2014. That quote, “Stand still. The trees ahead and the bush beside you are not lost,” was misattributed to Albert Einstein (the internet is not always a reliable place to source quotes!), so I thank Sara Wright for calling that - Read More -

SHE DID THAT!

It was my sincere honor to be present in Houston, Texas for the She Did That! event celebrating African-American women entrepreneurs this past week. I met so many incredible women, and I loved being surrounded by such incredible Art at the amazing Houston Museum of African-American Culture (HMAAC)! That my books could be among such - Read More -

THE PLAGUE OF PERFECTION

When I notice a minor typo in an email I’ve just sent, I have to continually tell myself to let it go. When I find a typo in a social media post, I immediately edit it. These things don’t really matter, but I still want to get them right. I think about these small mistakes - Read More -

NOMAD

I’m writing this post from Thailand…at the Lamai Beach Muay Thai camp in Koh Samui. It is one of my favorite places to unwind and focus on physical well-being. I’d been trying to keep up with all of my travels and impressions on this site, but after a few months—and twice as many cities—I have - Read More -

REDONDO

As I write this post, I’m looking out onto Redondo Beach and feeling at home again. The ocean breeze, blue waters, and muted sun that is so familiar to me from my years living here are all so welcoming after being away for a year. I am so thankful and fortunate that I’m getting closer - Read More -

MONTE SAHAJA

After spending almost a month back on my island, I traveled to Portugal (mid-June) to attend an advanced spiritual retreat with Zen Master Mooji. I met Mooji for the first time in 2017 and was transformed by his teachings. His direct and accessible style, his sense of humor, his pointings and his PRESENCE were life - Read More -

SLOW DOWN

I’ll start with a disclaimer…most of what I write, I write for myself haha! I’m terrible about slowing down. I always want to get things done quickly…and I also want things done perfectly. It’s contradictory, I know…but it’s my real life haha When I look back on situations I rushed through, I realize that I - Read More -
