In the woods we return to reason and faith.    – Emerson   I was hiking with my favorite twelve year old in a glorious redwood forest, where we saw trees sprouting from trees sprouting from trees. Upon seeing a largish spruce that was rooted in a fallen redwood, he wondered how many long-ago layers […]

On Tuesday, I was stopped mid-scroll by a posting of the astounding conehead mantis, perched like a showy supermodel on a twig. On Thursday, I was halted mid-run by the buzz of honeybees over my head, gathering pollen from the fleeting blossoms of the saguaro cactus. And just this evening, I was paused in my […]

“Love falls to earth, rises from the ground, pools around the afflicted. Love pulls people back to their feet. Bodies and souls are fed. Bones and lives heal. New blades of grass grow from charred soil. The sun rises.”  – Anne Lamott, Help. Thanks. Wow.   Saturday morning, on a layover halfway to my destination, […]

How fortunate I am to be part of the Bioneers community, a group that is unafraid to grieve, unafraid to celebrate, unafraid to dream, unafraid to work towards what might be possible.  What’s possible is not static. What’s possible is ever changing. Some pathways grow thorny, while others suddenly clear.   Dear ones, it’s time […]
