I am a coach who helps women break free of societal conditioning that holds them hostage in doubt and anxiety so they can live in full expression and creativity. Writing is one of my modalities and I believe stories help us heal and expand.
Archery, Crooked Hips, and a Path to Healing
When I was small, around three or four, I sat in front of the square television in my parent's living room watching the 1961 musical version of West Side Story. My uncle Berny gifted us the VHS version and I remember how excited I was to push the tape into the player and watch the screen come to life. The dancing! The singing! The costumes! It is safe to say that my first true love was the character Tony played by Richard Beymer.
Is slow life actually real life?
I woke to a rooster crowing and the view of tree covered hills for miles and miles. Outside my window sat my sister's cat, Tormenta (storm), meowing in a familiar rhythm to my dog's howls. She was hungry. I rose slowly to open the balcony door to let her in and walk with her down the stairs where she eats fresh fish from a bowl on the kitchen floor. Like any good aunt might do, I often offered her additional snacks of cream and cheese from the refrigerator door.
