Intersection of three passions

When a hummingbird buzzed near my ear, making my hair lift during my morning meditation in the desert, I had a feeling I might be in for a special day. I was correct. I joined ten other women at a trailhead outside of Tucson yesterday morning. We hiked our way to a beautiful destination, then …

Superstition Mountain

Outlined in the distance, its powerful presence has been a vision to admire, even worship; not a painting I thought to fold myself into, especially when the setting sun transforms the mountain of stone into a majestic goddess.

Punk Scene and Desert Serene

This life is full of stressors that make us want to scream. I sort most of that out during my morning meditation that offers me peace and connection. But how much freer my mind would be if I could disturb the peace and add to my release with an unfiltered scream? How much more centered …

A Detour & A Desert Dance (personal poetic prose)

Consider, how far you’ve come and how, with your face to the sun and with one foot in front of the other, you will get where and what you are intended. A detour on my way to a three-day desert escape… With my car idling, I was a stranger outside looking in. Beyond the (once …
