A love letter to the moms and dads.

Birthdays feel different to me now. More so than ever. Still a linger of celebratory, it seems they prominently hold a reflective feel to me. As I think of this exact day, a decade ago, I smile. I think of the prelude to the big event, the small details, the suspense, the mini-moments that make up the day/life of pre and post child. Different universes entirely it seems.

10 years ago today I met my munchkin, me being one of the most self absorbed humans you’d meet (and then some). And then, immediately and steadily crescendoing daily, my heart grew a hundred times its size. Looking back, it feels very Grinchesque. I’d love to know the tally on how many times I’ve kissed this young lad in pure instinct, love, gratitude, joy, sadness. My guess – a million trillion. This love is indescribable. I’d highly recommend. What a rad, rad ride.


Be brave. Save yourself. Save the World.

Song: Don’t look back in anger – Oasis

Reading Piece de Resistance: Just remember, every single moment you remain coiled in a ball of fear, our world fractures just a little bit more because your heart is breaking, aching to be acknowledged, by you. Listen, and then take action. Taken from Elephant Journal: Rebecca Lammersen

Quote: Nothingman – Pearl Jam

Caught a bolt ‘a lightnin’
cursed the day he let it go…
isn’t it something?
she once believed
in every story he had to tell…
one day she stiffened
took the other side


Life Lusty.
