Lately


Lately my days are consumed by these two adorable piglets. They grow and change every hour - it's been incredible to watch! This season now has a whole new meaning and I'm so excited to celebrate Christmas with them in our lives.

I'm attempting to keep up with current events and pop culture (thank you, Twitter!), but the blog will more than likely be quiet these next few weeks. It's important to slow down and really observe this time of year. Harder said than done when juggling twins, but I'll give it the ole college try.

Peace and love to all!

Sharon Jones



RIP Miss Sharon Jones. I saw her about 6 or so years ago at Targhee Fest when I was living in Wyoming. That performance ranks up there as one of my top 5 favorites.

For Love In A Time Of Conflict

I poached this poem from the beautiful blog, Homesong.

When the gentleness between you hardens
And you fall out of your belonging with each other,
May the depths you have reached hold you still.

When no true word can be said, or heard,
And you mirror each other in the script of hurt,
When even the silence has become raw and torn,
May you hear again an echo of your first music.

When the weave of affection starts to unravel
And anger begins to sear the ground between you,
Before this weather of grief invites
The black seed of bitterness to find root,
May your souls come to kiss.

Now is the time for one of you to be gracious,
To allow a kindness beyond thought and hurt,
Reach out with sure hands
To take the chalice of your love,
And carry it carefully through this echoless waste
Until this winter pilgrimage leads you
Towards the gateway to spring.


-John O’Donohue from To Bless the Space Between Us
