Recipe for a Good Enough Mother

IMG_5122

I became a mother when I was seven years old. An all consuming love happened in an instant, as it does for some new mothers, when my angelic brother, just having been adopted, was brought home at seven days old. When I first saw him, gorgeous as a crescent moon, with blond tiny ringlets, I… [Read More]

It’s not so easy, as you probably know – to calm the waters. The other day I was in the Vitamin Barn when… [Read More]

There’s No Place Like Om

Have you ever had one single ripple effect every other ripple in your life? Like a domino that gently falls into a line of dominos, making a beautiful and unexpected mandala.
