  • What is Freedom, Really? 

    freedom at shore

    I know and love a lot of drifters.  They own no property, have no primary relationship or children, and have no long term job or business.  They live as house sitters, work in short spurts, and occasionally pair up in short term relationships.  They are seemingly unencumbered and able to drop everything to travel or try something new.

    Are they free? Continue reading

  • Poverty Conscious?  Get Over It!

    money spiralIt is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”    Matthew 19:23-26

    This was the mantra, apparently a quote from Jesus himself, which my husband Stephen had drilled into him in catechism class by Catholic nuns who had taken a vow of poverty.  The lesson he took with him?  That virtue equals poverty—an interesting message to get from one of the wealthiest institutions on the planet! Continue reading

  • What’s Your Daily Walk?

    walk-fine-line1“You never know how a day will go” is my motto number 1 since we moved 2000 miles to live on the land that called us.

    I love living in a place of spectacular beauty. I like that there’s no 9 to 5 hamster wheel here for humans to get stuck on, that we have to create our own structure, and that the land, through its beauty and its harshness,  is constantly teaching us Continue reading

  • "Houston, we have a problem..."

    Although it was beautiful outside, I spent this entire weekend indoors at the annual Albuquerque Health and Wellness Expo, presenting both our temperature-regulating clothing and the line of supplements that I both use and distribute.

    Thousands of people showed up to do what smart consumers always try to do – shop for their best deal.  There were about a hundred different booths, including ours. The biggest draws by far were the insurance clearinghouses, because insurance is now both expensive and mandatory, and the outreach screenings and flu shots courtesy of the local hospital – something for nothing.   Continue reading

  • What the Heck is a Warrior Woman?


    I began this year with a clear mandate from my spirit guides that I am not to hold back.  I’m to step up, speak my truth, sing my song, and be a leader.

    Gulp.  That’s a tall order.  And I don’t know exactly what it all means yet.  It could take most of the year, if not longer, to process the message, develop a vision, and manifest it fully.

    But I have accepted the task and spoken it aloud.  Of course, no one is handing me a cursed ring Continue reading

  • Clearing Away Sacred Clutter


    I've entered the home stretch of the year, which always includes an action-packed run from
    Thanksgiving through New Year's. It's a whirlwind of events that include my sons home for the holidays, gathering and storing food and wood, out of town guests and a convergence of Christian, Jewish, pagan and indigenous holidays. It's a time of year full of hustle, bustle, reunion and sharing with so many of the people I love, it merits my least favorite activity – cleaning! Continue reading

  • Can We (Still) Talk?


    I've had an interesting meltdown over the last week.  I just found out last night that my emails weren't reaching anyone unless they used the same hosting company that manages our web site--which is no one!  We still haven't gotten to the bottom of the problem, but that's boring technical stuff that someone else will handle... Continue reading

  • Does the Devil Wear a Pink Ribbon?


    Aside from being spectacularly beautiful in much of the US, October is breast cancer awareness month.  My most popular blog to date was the one I wrote last year at this time called Why I Don’t Wear a Pink Ribbon.  It was a rant about how we’ve all been duped into believing that a pink ribbon supports women with breast cancer or breast cancer prevention when in fact it’s really a corporate gimmick supporting a mammogram industry that has become falsely synonymous with early detection, prevention, and saving lives.  Continue reading

  • Creating Intimacy via Technology

    cat-computerNo, I don’t mean sexting or on-line dating!  I’m talking about really getting to know and understand people at a distance. Continue reading

  • Credentials:  Deferential or Detrimental? 


    As you know, I’m in the process of leaving my New Mexico clinic job.  What’s the hold-up?  Credentialing.  Even though I’ve practiced medicine for three decades, I have to prove—again-- that I am who I say I am and that my credentials (licenses, certifications, training, experience, references, clean legal record, etc.) are real. Continue reading
