Dear Journeyer, “How do you know if you’ve officially let go?” asks one of our neighbors. What a beautiful question. There really is no one right or wrong answer.

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Wow…what a week…a gloriously busy and FAST week! Blink! It’s Sunday. It’s that start of Daylight Savings here in the Northeast.

Happy Sunday, Journeyer, Life is as Life does, and this week has been a culmination of highs and hopes, lows and losses.

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Right now I am a puddle of nothingness and everything-ness, so this post is likely to be quick and to the point.

Days filled with anxiety and unrecognized fear, two things that when combined are a cocktail for Anger and Frustration and Heartache. Despite abundant sunshine, my days were filled with a thick haze that precedes a storm. My nights  interrupted by persistent, yet unusual, lightening …

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! This past week has been a combination of everything. Excitement! Fear. Flu-like symptoms. Friendship. Learning. Love. Laughter. Reading. Sadness. Worry about loved ones who ran into some difficult times.  Writing. Strange as it might sound, my week hasn’t felt like the roller-coaster ride you might think after reading this list above! It’s a good thing because some …

Happy Tuesday, Journeyer! Well…all that keeps coming to mind with regard to this post is Up, Up, and Away (in my beautiful balloon.) I have no idea what the lyrics of that song represent, but I know how the music and melody have always made me feel: Like I wanted to fly. Not just fly, but to glide across the …
