Hi, friends! It’s been a beautiful and healing time — nearly three months as a mom of two! My daughter turned two last week, so I now no longer have the excuse of “two under two” when things go awry, ha. My son, Isaiah, recently started to smile and laugh, and when he does, it’s like a thousand flowers bursting at once. I love it.
Big transitions (like motherhood) naturally evoke an evaluation of what’s most pressing and important. I am listening to my inner wisdom when it comes to how I can be of service to the world beyond my family, in a way that feels validating, enriching and worthwhile.
Hi, friends! I’m happy to report that I’ll be taking Maternity Leave between November 2022 and January 2023 to welcome our second baby, a boy whose name is still (mostly) undecided.
If you’d like to work together before I go into full-on baby mode, please reach out! I have 2 new client spots open for editing or coaching between now and November.
Current clients, fear not: I’ll be available to you as usual, give or take a couple of weeks! This notice is primarily for new clients. 🙂
If you love strong, feminist voices, you probably already know all about Anaïs Nin. I never had the pleasure of reading her work in high school or college, although after reading In Favor of the Sensitive Man and Other Essays, I’d make her essays required reading if I were a teacher!
Ha! Amateur mistake. I noticed that the editor of the magazine is still the same person. Part of me wondered if I should clarify who I am now since they keep a record of submissions / acceptances / rejections with notes like, “We regret to inform you we cannot publish this poem because of its appearance on another platform.”
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.”
