  There is that one thing that can spur you out of retirement from writing longer pieces, and well, this topic was it for me. I have been working for the past three years on a project that has consumed my writing time, and more recently I have taken a break from the constant once-a-month […]

From The West To The South And West Again

Every desire for good and happiness is for each person a very great and insidious Love. (…) Love is the desire to possess what is good forever.  – Plato, Symposium, XXIV Nearing the end of my tremendously inspiring trip with my family in Chile, I was feeling sadness and anxiousness: sadness for the obvious – […]

Hola From The Beautiful Abyss

January 24th, 2018

| Posted in January 2018

Greetings from Chile! The good news is that life gets more exciting the more you stay awake – meaning conscious and willing to take risks in the completely unknown details. If we choose to always tiptoe around things and cannot move until we know the answers to every little detail, we will never experience the […]

Happy 2018 my dear sweet friends! To be quite frank I was not sure what to write for you at the end of last year, it seemed more so than ever I myself was being bombarded by emails and social media telling me to get ready for a new year. “What are you planning for […]

The New Kind Of Christmas List

December 13th, 2017

| Posted in December 2017

For the past couple of weeks, I have been preparing for the arrival of my family for Christmas. And as I create my lists and check them twice, I notice that I have a tendency to fill up empty ‘time slots’ with things to do with them. It’s strange, I am thinking, how the meaning […]

Over & Over in Patterns We Go

Since 1997 I have had the privilege to formally study the work of the renowned Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung. It is my passion for the collective unconscious that keeps me interested and intrigued by Jungian theory. What drives us to repeat similar experiences or behaviors over and over again in our lives?

Salty At Heart

We have been trying for years to pick publications to submit my written work to that are aligned with my message and the work I do.  I know it’s not about the masses of readership – the quantity – but the quality of the publication, its mission and its contributors.  In the end it will […]

The Perfect Piece of Art to Share

This particular salad is requested more than any other salad I prepare. And when I do, I know it’s going to be for a group of people. It’s a delectable salad to be shared. It reminds me of the many foods in Italy I have experienced with family or friends when traveling and the joy […]

I have not watched the Star Wars movies since watching the original trilogy that began in 1977. So when a friend of mine heard I was going to Ireland, she asked me if I had gotten tickets to see Skellig Michael. I had no idea what in the world she was talking about. Never heard […]

Summer has arrived in full force, and I can feel a change of energy in the air! People are hustling and bustling, but it’s a different kind of busy than other times of the year. Kids are out of school, and people are making plans to travel and visit loved ones or sites that they […]
