Sunday Best – January 24, 2020

My parents like to tell how three of my earliest words as a child were, do it myself!  This is a sweet reflection on my deep-rooted stubborn character, which has been my greatest strength and my greatest limitation throughout life, as many deep-rooted traits can be. This independent streak has been accepted and applauded through […]

  The line on the map is not to be found at the edge of the sea.       – Donella Meadows   Yesterday I awoke to a hard rain falling on the rooftop. Safe and warm inside, I decided to venture outdoors with a book, the fantastic Under the Sea-Wind by Rachel Carson. […]

A little while back, I was part of the terrific Voices of Nature series hosted by gifted teacher and leader Toby Herzlich. One of my biomimicry friends (thank you, S!) asked a question that I’ve carried with me these past weeks – what is it that the bees are teaching me in this moment? There’s not […]

  It’s a fresh new year, full of potential, full of promise. For at least a decade, “more yoga” appeared on my new year’s list – but this was a fib, as it should have read, “any yoga.” A truly un-bendy body and flashbacks of mean girls from junior high made this entry more of […]

As the year draws to a close, I start making lists, counting my blessings. Normally these lists are full of things I’ve seen and done – lots of travels, celebrations with loved ones, all sorts of buzzy activity. This year, though intensely busy in different ways, has markers that are quieter and a little harder to […]

Sunday Best – December 20, 2020

For many of us, these past few days have brought a little sip of fresh air. Inbound emails finally started to slow, vaccine trucks rolled out from their manufacturing sites, and those in the eastern US had a challenging but glorious dumping of snow. As we tilt into the new week, the wee hours of […]

I was scrolling through photos with my niece this week and she stopped at a series from my last trip to Liberia. She asked me about every single person, about the kids who were getting checked for nutrition and the babies who were receiving their vaccinations and the community health workers delivering care, about the log […]

Sunday Best – November 29, 2020

In this season of bounty and harvest and gratitude, I’ve been considering enough-ness, and how deep our fear of scarcity can run. Made a pie for Thanksgiving? Why not two or three? Earned an A-minus on an assignment? Why not an A-plus? Ran a marathon? Why not an ultra-marathon? Sometimes this kind of ambition is […]

  Dear friends, Sometimes there is nothing to do but to make a wish on a floating milkweed seed. May we all have a wish-filled week. (Please click “view photos” if you cannot see the images here).  

Sunday Best – July 5, 2020

  I’ve been lucky to spend a lot of time in the garden lately, where I victoriously harvested 6 whole green beans yesterday, after defending them from bunnies and groundhogs and deer. In getting closer to all sorts of plants, I’ve learned a lot more about roots. Some are shallow and easily disturbed, like the […]
