“I hope you’ll hear what I am about to tell you. I hope you’ll hear it all the way down to your toes. When you are waiting, your not doing nothing. You’re doing the most important something there is. You’re allowing your soul to grow up. If you can’t be still and wait, you can’t become what God created you to be.”

~ Sue Monk Kidd


What is a soul mate?

“…a partner with whom one shares values and a commitment to bring out the highest good in one another…”

“…a coupling of two people’s development into one path – so his development is as important to me as my own…” – Ellen Bustyn

… not only the love of my life, but the soul and inspiration that allows me to do my work… my partner in every respect… writer, thinker, artist, visionary…. my greatest teacher, my greatest friend…

Where are you? Can we find each other now?

Have you met your soul mate? Do you share your life with that person? Where did you meet your soul-mate?

Hamden, Connecticut Farmers Market

Where do you buy your food? Do you buy organic or conventional produce? Do you consider where your food originates when you buy it?

The days are shortening. The sky is bright and clear.  The air is fresh and leaves crackle on the ground. Summer is winding down. Labor Day has come and gone and so have the summer people. I’ve been told the leaf-peepers will be arriving soon but I don’t believe I’ll be around to see them..

Like a migratory bird my inner compass is directing me westward.

I considered, I explored,  I thoughtfully examined my options… Camden, ME, Newport, RI, New Haven, CT, Boston, MA, NYC… Where will I hunker down for the winter?

I’m captivated with the emerald hues and golden days of summer in New England, but as it wraps up and heads into the brisk transition of fall, I yearn again for startling mountains dipping down to the sea, for green grassy shadows in February, and warm December days at the beach. California dreamin’ in my blood…

Why do you live where you live? Do you love it? Why have you chosen this location? If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?
