Journey

It’s been a while folks. Oh where to begin…. I sit here before a quietly blinking cursor, and swear I will not curse, myself.  Just breathe and begin, there is no wrong answer.  My silence here is reflective of my process. I am nothing if not authentic, and I write from a heartfelt space. Some…

Into Stillness

Breathe. Expand. Hold. Moving into stillness requires presence, attention, and grace.  Deep fall prepares our hearts and bodies, guiding us within, expanding our attention as daylight gives way to shadow.  Winter holds us steady wrapped in woolens and frosty arms of it’s sheer depth and fortitude. The season calls for quiet. For hibernation. For healing.…

An Instrument of Peace

Last night’s soft blanket of snow envelops the earth in loving warmth as dawn comes slowly this morning, shaking the cobwebs loose as I endure the wait for the kettle to whistle it’s shrill signal that coffee will soon be here. Chilled hands wrapped around a hot mug provide the comfort that my soul needs…

Perpetual Jar of Iced Tea

The rooster crows indignant of the stifling heat and humidity that is already billowing in through open windows of the old farm house. He seems to be daring the day into being, his mighty crow a lusty, bring it on dare. I, on the other hand, am not feeling so bold this morning, longing for…

A New Season

The winds are changing a bit here on the homestead.  Shifting from the North, beginning to gently whisper warmth from the South.  Soon we will be planting.  I have been preparing for this beautiful abundant new season for months.  There is soil to tend to, and perhaps spring babes, if we are lucky. There are…

Food + Sacred

Your Body is a Temple. The body is the house of our soul, the sacred temple that we get to live this one wild and wondrous life in.  It is a magnificent gift.  I invite you to explore the connection between how you feel internally, with what you are choosing to consume, the link between food…

The Sacred Everyday

Sunshine dances across diamond dunes outside the homestead kitchen window.  Late afternoon stretches across shadows as light plays fairy-like ascending into ether. Sparkling crisp breezes call my soul out of doors, while my mind and body tend to the bread rising and baking in the oven.  Comforting wisps of fragrant ferment permeate the air and tickle nostrils, reminding me to…

LoveMade Christmas

As darkness slowly gives way to gradual light this morning, the second kettle of the day sends it’s shrill whistle near bursting at the seams, steam and holler permeates the quiet stillness that surrounds.  Snow gently floats from sky above to touch the receiving earth waiting below.  The hens are playing it safe, staying within the confines of the cozy coop,…
