Greetings from the Beach!

Greetings from the Beach!

As a kid I remember summer being the ultimate time of play. No school. No homework. More time spent outside and with friends. Encouraged by the adults. Built into culture.


Now as an adult, the effort to engage in play needs to be more deliberate or it can easily be lost. I write this to you from the beach as I listen to the sound of the Caribbean Sea. A week of play. Swimming, snorkeling, bike riding. My first real vacation in 2 years.

Peak of Light

Peak of Light

In the light, we can see more.
And right now, the high beams are ON!

This is the brightest week of the year. Full Moon on Monday. Summer Solstice on Friday. This can be a time of joy and a time to SHINE! But it can also feel like being under the spotlight where vulnerability and discomfort are illuminated.

Solstice lies at the edge. It’s the u-turn. It’s the slowing down before change of direction. Be gentle with yourself this Solstice weekend. Soak up the solar power. Store it in your system. The days are about to get shorter again. If we can move with ease now, and not burn out, this light can help support us through our winter.

Season of Pollination

Season of Pollination

Full life, full light. The world is in full bloom. The sleepiness of winter has worn off as we make our way towards Summer Solstice. There is an excitement and a buzz. Perhaps you feel the vibration in your body like you’ve downed a few cups of coffee even if you haven’t had a sip. While this buzz is a healthy part of nature’s rhythms, remember to tend to your nervous system. 

Are you walking the dog, or is the dog walking you?
