Putting the Puzzle Together

I spent New Year’s weekend out in the country with many of my best friends in Texas. That house is my home away from home. Those people are the family I wasn’t born with. Every weekend out there is a celebration, whether there is a reason to celebrate or not. At one point, a puzzle… Continue reading Putting the Puzzle Together

Pluto and Personal Power

On January 14th, the Sun will make its annual conjunction with Pluto. Astrologically speaking, Pluto is Ground Zero these years, most especially for the USA. I have done a number of readings recently that centered around Pluto in the Natal Chart, transits to Pluto, or Pluto transiting something else. In my mind, the first (as… Continue reading Pluto and Personal Power

Windows of the Soul

Yesterday morning, I set out for my daily walk in the park. To get there, I walk through a couple of blocks of my neighborhood, then down the hill. En route, I passed a van and then later an Amazon delivery person. I smiled at her and she smiled back. Her smile was warm, broad,… Continue reading Windows of the Soul

Play Time!

Yesterday, I went to the gym. 🤣 Just kidding, but I certainly feel as if I did. My cherished friends invited me over. These are the ones I see almost weekly. Among them is a 2-1/2 year old named Jack. Often, when Jack looks around a nearly empty room, he says, “Where are my people?”… Continue reading Play Time!

Nineteen Years

On September 8, 2001, I traveled from Washington DC to NYC by train. In 2001, I was a Software Engineer and Architect for Advent Software. The product I worked on was called Geneva, a portfolio accounting system. We hosted two user conferences each year: one typically at HQ in SF, and one on the east… Continue reading Nineteen Years

A True Texas Storm

On the last afternoon of July, a true Texas storm rolled through Austin. When I first noticed its approach, my house sat along the edge. To the south, I saw nothing but bright sunshine and blue skies. To the north, I saw no blue whatsoever. Above my home, clouds filled the sky. Along the northern… Continue reading A True Texas Storm

June / July Eclipses

“Eclipses hide the light, so you can see a shadow, then turn the light back on so you can heal the shadow.” I wrote that quote a couple of years ago and placed it inside what could eventually become my third novel...if I get inspired to complete it. That quote feels oh so real right… Continue reading June / July Eclipses

Riding the Wave

More than 10 years ago, I did a reading for a woman who was an avid meditator. Through her practice she was even able to fall into a state of supreme connection and oneness that lasted days. Despite thinking that getting a reading would be mind-candy and something she was not interested in, she felt… Continue reading Riding the Wave

Contrast

After I took this photo, I was inspired to write about it. The contrast really stands out. The blue of the sky, which only subtly fades a bit to the lower right, starkly contrasts the lower half of the photo. It is light, while most of the rest of the picture is darker. It’s texture… Continue reading Contrast
