The Glitter from the Grit: A Blessing for Wild Things


May you choose to sift the glitter from the grit of life.

May you sharpen those internal soul tools that make self excavation possible, even when messy.

May you choose to pursue your life purpose fearlessly, no matter what bills are due.

May you realize that you don’t need to be inspired to create, and you don’t need to clean the house or the catbox first.

The Queen of Shovels


After 1000 broken vows

Medicine Woman holds tools for healing in her magic basket.

She dances in the moonlight and sings her prayers.

Medicine Woman knows herbs and signs, stars and sums.

She is between maiden and mother, mother and crone.

The Journey


She wasn’t sure how long it would take
And she didn’t know just where she was going

To Be Wonderful


Have you ever felt
not quite yourself around some folks?
Why is it that
to be wonderful
