NEW YEAR REFLECTIONS

During my hike yesterday, I was captivated by this small, clear pool of water. Because the water was calm and unagitated, I could see the rocks below very clearly. In the same way, when we are calm and still, we are able to see things clearly.  Every new year, I try to take a moment – 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 –

REST

I have been traveling (around the world) for almost a year straight, and it is hard to put into words what that feels like. While the experiences, people, and places have been great, my body has reminded me of the importance of rest. While I feel the excitement of new things on the horizon, it – Read More –

MOOJI

I keep a picture of the moment just before I met Mooji as the background art on my mobile phone. I do that because I want to keep that beautiful memory alive in my consciousness. It was so profound, but even still, life creates new memories that can push old ones down. When I think – 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.
