Personal

Held

2017-01-04

A dear friend of mine recently described her new found love for ballet. She felt silly in her enthusiasm because she was a novice and knew nothing about the technical aspects of the dance, she just knew she loved it. That’s how I feel about poetry. There is a naive joy in it for me.

Poetry as Prayer

2016-11-18

My morning ritual — reading and writing poetry has turned into a form of prayer for me. With the recent change of season, I had a lapse in this precious time. As the chilly air started settling in, I had to find a new space that called to me and allowed me to revel in my dream life just a bit longer. During this lapse, I found myself falling into old patterns. Going straight to my computer and

Ember Turns 3

2016-08-29

I’m still reveling in my morning poetry time. The thing I love most about taking this time to read/write poetry is that it allows me to linger in that dreamlike space before filling my mind with thoughts about the day. And once I have a poem in mind, it can hold me in that space and serve as a reminder throughout the day, to return to that place of quiet reverence. Ember turned 3 on Saturday and amidst all the celebration,

White Butterfly

2016-07-11

I debated for a while whether or not I should share this poem. It’s very personal and I feel it comes from a sacred place. I wasn’t sure if it was meant to be shared, or stay close to my heart—free from outside judgement. I even consulted the I Ching, which brought more confusion. I sometimes find that consulting outer wisdom—as enlightening as it can sometimes be—can also bring you further from your own internal knowing. It’s funny, after

Dance

2016-05-31

I started dancing again. This time in a more formal way than I’m used to. I’m in a lyrical class and am falling in love—with the movement, the teacher, the dancers. Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet and jazz dance techniques. Lyrical dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use motion to interpret music and express emotion. A lyrical dancer’s movements attempt to show the meaning of the music. Lyrical jazz is a very passionate and emotional dance style.

Unearthed Film

2016-05-25

I’ve had this roll of film floating around for over a decade now. I finally had it developed and I was thrilled to find some real gems. It makes me want to revert to film immediately. There is a quality that you can’t touch with digital. This roll also benefited greatly from age—I’m so in love with the tints that snuck in. I also had a moment looking through the photos wondering if it was myself or my mom who took the

Everything Golden Blog (Photo by: Pam Omohundro) I recently did an interview with Danielle of A Life in the Season. You can read the full interview here.

Social Media

2015-10-09

So, I want to talk about social media. I’m feeling really strange about it all. I find that I get so addicted to Instagram that I can’t even make myself step away for a day. I post and delete things constantly, feeling unsure of myself. Who cares?! And I can’t help but get caught up with the vanity of presenting the best image of myself, myself also being my brand which I’m trying to build and building that requires
