Life is full of second chances

Have you ever felt stuck? Stuck in a career, in a relationship, in a situation….? If you have you know how paralyzing it can be.  Throughout my life I have heard of and witnessed what we refer to as the mid-life crisis. I watched my father go through one, and always sort of attributed it to a ‘guy thing’ that happened to men in their forties or fifties. It’s just what I knew.

Running a Small Business During Covid - An Open Letter to my Customers

Dear Friends,   I haven't posted a blog in some time, mostly because I have been rather busy in the studio, but also because this has been an unexpected time for family to reconnect, to have dinners together again, to go back to all of those things that I have genuinely missed.

How to Beat the Seasonal Blues

I don't know if you are anything like me, but I have always been 'affected' by the winter months; namely, the lack of sunlight and Vitamin D, the shorter days and the cold...the gray, well, it just brings me down a bit. At least, that's how it used to be. A few years ago, I really took control of my own health, to the degree that I have any control, and my wellbeing, which includes how I choose to FEEL every day of every season. Since there are actual physical changes that happen to our bodies, including brain chemistry issues,...
