Beautiful Souls

By on May 6, 2016

In 2014, photographer Katie Gardner took some photos for me at Blogher for a project that never materialized. Our intent was to put together a book, but the resources to put that book together never showed up no matter how hard we tapped the Universe’s shoulder.

Reclaiming The Divine

By on October 10, 2014

Like many people, I was raised in a religious home. And like many people, I then grew up, made choices for myself, and decided I didn’t want to be a part of that religion any longer. This story is not unique by any means. A byproduct of growing up in a highly religious environment is […]

It would be easy to say as things get older they automatically go towards entropy like moths to a flame in the witching hour.

Marci and Delaney

By on May 9, 2014

I had the good fortune to spend the afternoon with Marci and her two lovely daughters plus a group of the nicest women you’ve ever met a few weeks back. (Fun fact – I actually realized I knew some of them from years ago and it was so nice to see them again!) Marci’s friends […]
