There was hoar-frost here in Lakeville, Minnesota last week – the temp reached 28 degrees. The trees and prairie grass were covered with a breathtakingly beautiful coating of sparkling diamonds that only Mother Nature herself can create. For those of you who may not know what hoar-frost is, the definition is “a grayish-white crystalline deposit of frozen water vapor formed in clear still weather on vegetation, fences, etc.”  What a DULL explanation… Read More


The Toughest One to Heal is Self. I’ve been helping people heal and find balance for many years and my first difficult person to heal has arrived. ME! My biggest struggle is with the concept of how to heal SELF – how to dedicate 30 percent of my day toward my own self-care. It isn’t about making the time actually, it is how do I go about caring for my mind, my emotions, my… Read More


I found the need to toddle, as my fear began to teeter. For my steps so briskly taken, felt of scaling shards of glass. Stepped back to view the scene, checked for blindness to my truth. Was saved from tripping downward, when I asked my soul to speak. The pause was loud and lengthy, as a whisper grew in loudness. Words complex yet simply spoken, slowly seeped into my heart. “As you… Read More


Never be bullied into silence.  Never allow yourself to be made a victim.  Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself. Been there, done that, never again.


In 1598 William Shakespeare wrote the following . . . “Camomile, the more it is trodden on, the faster it grows” (That is how they spelled Chamomile back then) In our time, I’m thinking the more we are trodden on the meaner we get. I’m also thinking it doesn’t need to be that way. Being trodden on forces change by changing a normal expected pattern into a pattern of needing to think… Read More


May we always write what we are afraid to write by putting one word after another. It’s that easy – and that difficult. Debs


  It has been said that “firewood is not the fire”. Let’s think that through for a moment. Assuming this example is correct, firewood is the “fuel” to fire’s needs. Firewood would still be firewood without the fire and remains so until fire uses it. When fire uses the firewood to fuel itself, it morphs the firewood into ash. The fire actually changes the shape, look and feel of the firewood by… Read More

Most of us live a life that is not always made of straight lines taking us from one event to another – from point A to point B. Many of the lines of life are actually created by broken lines – the ones drawn by an unexpected turn, or maybe when we feel we have been on a long, continuous chaotic path. In truth, it wasn’t chaotic at all. When you step… Read More


Most of us have been taught “the unexpected must be expected” – more than likely at a very young age.  A particularly pleasant “lesson form” would be a fairy tale.  The word “serendipity” immediately came to mind and for a bit I was swept into the powerful magical impact fairy tales crammed full of amusing adventures seemingly have on each of us.   Fairy tales are definitely the imaginative playground of the… Read More
