- I am a renegade and an outlaw. I am a dancing soul with a huge heart and a history strewn with errors and missed steps. I am a lady that did life “wrong” for more years than I care to admit. I tried to do a version of life that my culture and my family thought was valid. I failed miserably with much pain and sorrow to show for it.
At the age of fifty-one I walked away from that life and ventured into one with my spirit soaring and my soul pounding the pavement of living. Here is what I discovered: We are meant to live full-on, gut-wide and happy. We are meant to know our power and beauty as human beings and to rejoice in this gift of our days on this planet.
And this is what I share with others. I do it with laughter and honesty and with the insight born from my own life and learning. I do it with great love and with great passion.
For this is my life and I intend to share it and dare it all the way—until I am done.

"I can't help it!" These four words are complete and unutterable baloney while at the same time they are the wisest mantra I can claim. For they are two sides of the same coin, you see. I was just holding the coin in my hand the wrong way. I had the… Read full post »
I so wanted to be beautiful and strong, elegant and life-done-well. And I thought I was on the right track, you see. I had the education and those letters after my name, I had the career and the children and the spouse and the house. But somewhere along the line I… Read full post »
A younger woman wore my clothes. An older woman held my soul. A teenage heart called my dreams. A mélange of ladies walked in this body of mine for years untold, unharnessed and dis-remembered. Now at last these three of me have come together in an aching and powerful whole. I… Read full post »
If statistics are correct, the majority of us will say good-bye to a spouse or two before we are through with our journey in the here and now. We grow and change, they don't; they grow and change, we don't. It is… Read full post »
I don't know about you, but I was raised with one great big fallacy hanging over me from cradle pretty much right on through to more than a few years past college. I was taught that life was fair. You got as good as you gave. Honesty was repaid in kind.… Read full post »
It hits us all at one time or another in numerous quiet and not-so-quiet instances. We are getting older; we are getting old. Time is marching, no matter how hard we run and hide and try for a sleight of mind. We know in that quiet heart-voice that the physical resilience… Read full post »
My, my we are a culture of accumulation. Everywhere we look there are vendors vying for our attention, advising us to add to our “stuff.” And, it seems we are answering this call to consume with flying colors! Somehow we think that owning more “stuff” will make us feel better… Read full post »
There is a monster stalking the land--Political Correctness. The insidiously proper "P.C." has staunched voices of reason and ham-strung the voicing of honest opinion. We have become a nation and a culture "terrified to offend," and have thus welcomed mindless mediocrity as the substitute for sincere… Read full post »

Love, the "L" word; it is what we are all searching for and yearning for. Somehow we think that if we could only be "truly" loved by someone else, that will caulk up all the empty holes we have and answer the myriad questions that occupy our hearts and minds. I… Read full post »
At fifty-seven years of age, I am well aware that a lot more than half my life has been lived. I find myself bemused by this fact, as well as interested in the process of aging as a whole, because this "being a person of age" isn't quite what I… Read full post »
The day I finally grew up was the day I stopped being a "good girl." It was the day I slowed down long enough to admit to myself that I was tired of telling myself it was okay to not feel okay. It was the day the "good girl" finally bit… Read full post »
As my years are folding one into the other, I have come to the immutable fact that there really are no outside rules in life that can guide me. I must come to my own set of inner principles. I must consciously put myself and my truths out there. So… Read full post »
Boy, I get really lost in life at times. I can hit a wall of me wanting what I want. I’ll get all stubborn and wonky as I sit there with teary eyes and a “this sucks” thumb in my mouth. When I find myself in this place, I ask myself… Read full post »
As I sit here, there are tears in my eyes as pain is beginning to come to clarity. For months I have been struggling to write my weekly Guts of the Matter articles and the words have not come. Or if they have, they are not about what is really going… Read full post »
It is the stark and powerful beauty of a soul struggling . .
that makes my heart sing and sigh in wonder.
It is another's tears of sorrow or joy . . .
that cause my soul to fly out in a welcome of heartbreak or celebration.

I can be such a smart ass at times. When shopping recently, I blithely told the sales person that I was “pushing sixty,” smugly thinking to myself that I am only fifty-six. She remarked, “Gee, you look wonderful for your age!” (I always hate the “for your age” codi… Read full post »
What is the price of a happy and joy-filled life? It is a gut-level, brutal honesty about who we are and what we have been doing. When we face ourselves head-on with a fearless “I will do this thing,” the hidey-holes of denial and self-deception disappear and we are then free… Read full post »
"What do you want to be when you grow up?" We are asked this question as children from the first moments we can totter around and grab the doctor kit. We look for the things we must accomplish and the needs we are supposed to fill to define us as people.… Read full post »
