love love love

Blog posts can be few and far between, I know this to be true.

But even on the quietest days, I still send  love to you.

Happy Valentine's Day.

How will you be sharing your love today?


oh, the weather outside


Attending the Alt Summit was beyond wonderful. I savored it all. And for this So Cal girl, the weather outside held it's own charms. Totally amazed at the range of weather I experienced over those few days around Salt Lake City and then in Park City (yes, I squeezed in a whirlwind trip to Sundance) I couldn't help but want to shoot all the things I rarely see here at home.

Alas, I didn't take a lot of photos while I was away with my DSLR as I soaked in the goodness that Alt was with my heart and and soul and of course, my iphone, but the one's I did take were much about the splendor of Mother Nature, in all her Winter glory.

What the weather outside look like where you're at?





This week I stretched my legs and have wandered away from home to attend The Altitude Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah. We've hit the half way mark of the Summit and already I am totally creatively recharged. It has been amazing. Days (and nights) filled with old friends, new friends, engaging conversation, and inspiration galore, all housed at a venue that feels more like a palace than a hotel.

In a word; dreamy.

Where have you been wandering to these days?



Amidst my recent watching and waiting, my word for the year found me, just as I knew it would. Of all ironies, by allowing it to come, the word that became clear was allow.

Allow: make it possible through a specific action or lack of action for something to happen.

I can guarantee you that there are many blog posts to come on my new theme of 2012, but for right now, I am sitting with it. Musing on it. Reveling in the simple (yet complex) act of allowing.

Thank you so much for your comments on my last post. It's so nice to watch and wait with you. And so I ask you, what are you allowing?


watching and waiting


I've been formulating my first post of the New Year in my head for days now but when I put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) it's just not coming.

I'm still waiting for the right One Little Word to present itself. I know the feeling I want to carry throughout 2012 but the word hasn't come to me yet. So I wait.

I'm watching. Myself, you, my family, my friends. In quiet, contemplative, observation mode I am just seeing how things are moving. The tides coming in and going out. The moon waxing and waning. The process of things. The evolution.

I'm being still and am listening to the whispers of my inner-knowing. And I am honoring my own pace.

It sounds rather dreamy, doesn't it? It can be. But it can be equally uncomfortable when you're out of practice of just being. Just allowing. Just trusting.

And so, I'm trying to just allow it all. And feel it all. The ease and the discomfort. Sure, I've got exciting things coming, and big hopes and dreams. I've got things I want to do and news I want to share and adventures to be had. But I'm just not ready. Not right now. Right now, I am just being.

Right now, I'm watching and I'm waiting in this space that is part awesome and part funky. At least for a little while.

How are you feeling with 2012 New Year upon us? Is the year ahead clear to you or are you in observation mode? I'd love to hear about your process.
