Places & Spaces: Full Moon In Capricorn

Xunantunich

Time seems to be moving so fast, each week just as full as the previous. I’m not complaining. The past few months have been ripe with experiences that have shifted, challenged and changed me. And looking ahead, it seems there are still more to come. I’m incredibly grateful.  Continue reading “Places & Spaces: Full Moon In Capricorn”

Say Yes: Summer Solstice & New Moon In Cancer

The rainy season has officially begun here in Belize. With it comes overcast mornings and afternoon showers, with fluctuating temperatures and peeks of sunshine. Between periods of heavy rain, the air is fresh and the colors of the surrounding trees and flowers come alive. Everything is so green, more lush and vibrant. After the scorching dryness of the previous months, I welcome the change this season brings.  Continue reading “Say Yes: Summer Solstice & New Moon In Cancer”

Jumping In: New Moon In Gemini

So I’m officially in rehearsals for the play.

It’s been years since I was in a full cast play. As much as I’m a seasoned theater actor (ha!) who’s been performing since I was a kid, the process is always exciting and full of nervous energy for me. Theater and performing are my loves and bring me joy, and they also challenge me and take me to unknown places. There is a huge surrender that’s required, which is both awesome and scary.  Continue reading “Jumping In: New Moon In Gemini”

The Life of Seeds: On Gratitude

I’m keeping a gratitude journal this month. It’s an ongoing list in my little notebook of what I receive every day. Even though it’s only day four, I’ve racked up quite a few things, some monetary and some not – the discount I got on vegetables from my favorite stand at the market, the email inviting me to present a long-time performance project in a group show at a gallery in New York, the text sent to me this morning with the encouraging words I needed to hear right at that moment.  Continue reading “The Life of Seeds: On Gratitude”

A Movement

It’s been a rough few days. I’ve been feeling more sensitive than usual which, as an empath, means I’ve been feeling all the things. Even from here in my quiet home in Belize, I felt the intense energy leading up to the inauguration, not just from others but within myself as well. Anxiety, frustration, loss. I’m still processing all that happened for me personally in 2016, which is working its way through. And we just found out we have to move again. Everything all at once.  Continue reading “A Movement”

Onward & Upward

As I’ve been reflecting on the year that 2016 has been (FIERCE), I’m allowing myself to feel all that’s coming up. It’s been an emotional ride. There have been losses and intense challenges. There have also been wonderful moments. I’m grateful for all of it. Continue reading “Onward & Upward”

Taking A Moment

It’s been hard to write in this space lately. If I’m honest, it’s been hard to write in general. I worked on a piece this week for my coaching site about moving through resistance in the creative process, something I’d been putting off doing for weeks. While I feel good about having accomplished that, the fact that it took me so long to write it speaks to how I’ve been struggling with my own resistance. Continue reading “Taking A Moment”
