Jan Phillips Video

For many years Jan was my mentor and is still a very dear friend. Please watch this video from her. It is so very zen and peaceful, and so typical of Jan.

Changing Focus

OK, after recovering from my blue funk, I am repurposing this blog. I guess, if you are a regular visitor, you have noticed that my postings have been sporadic for the last few months.

As I approach my 60th birthday, I have been contemplating life in general, and my personal wellbeing in particular.

Earlier this summer, I made reservations for a New Years' retreat for peace at Ghost Ranch. Speaking with friends I mentioned that I thought this retreat would be a good way to start my 60th year on this earth. A very wise woman friend of mine (thanx PB) mentioned that my 60th year really started earlier, as I existed on the earth from the time of conception. Since this date is not something my Mother would appreciate discussing, I have fixed my date of conception at May 22, 1949. So I have already been in my 60th year, without even realizing it.

From this point on, my deep musing will show up here, and the funny, fluffy, joke posts etc. will show up on my facebook page. Art will probably show up in both places, as I plan on working on issues in my art.

The last month has been difficult, and as part of my recovery I am going deep inside. My favorite quote from Audre Lord is:

"The woman's place of power within each of us is not
white nor surface, it is dark, it is ancient, it is deep".

I plan on going to that dark, ancient and deep place, but with humor and creativity.
