Desire and Longing

What do you know about your heart’s longing for life? Late at night, between sleep and slumber, when our guard is down and we feel the vast possibilities reflected in the night sky, what do you long for? What secret desire wants to express itself through you? If you could be–just be–the truest expression of your secret heart, how would that look?   How different is that from the you who presents yourself to the world when the dreamy sleep falls away and you get up to meet the bright light of day?

The Beautiful Brain

I have been fascinated by the brain for as long as I can remember. When I was a little girl, my mother gave me a walk in closet to have as my own ‘laboratory”. This was prime space in a house of 8 children and I quickly put it to use with my microscope, my dissection and chemistry kits, a model of the brain and a cherished set of old encyclopedias....

Curiosity = Fun

Curiosity is the spice of life. I have had friends tell me that I am a bit like a labrador puppy. I like to play and am almost always up for exploring, especially if someone will do it with me. I get excited and energetic and animated....
