I want to talk about Boundaries

I want to talk about boundaries. This has always been a difficult topic for me and seems to be something that keeps coming up for me in my life. I wonder, when am I being selfish and insensitive to someone else’s needs vs. when am I being strong, standing my ground and respecting my own […]

Coming Full Circle

It is my birthday today. I am 43 years old. I wake up early this morning to walk along the white sands of the beach in Ogunquit, Maine. There is a field with lush, green grass along a river and a couple of rowboats perfectly placed as if waiting to be painted. I stand on […]
