Wisecracks (A Coachable Moment)

I'm so excited about the next couple of weeks. Vision board workshop this Thursday. These workshops are always a growing experience for me and often surprise those who participate. you know what you really want? Next week, my friend Amparo Rodriguez is leading a workshop on Intuitive art. Wow! Naturally I'm taking the class and I'm very excited to see what unfolds. Look to see my work hanging in my office space as you know I will want to share with each and every one of you.

This past week was interesting and enlightening. I'm sure most of us experienced a busy week one way or the other, but for me it wasn't busy because if hectic shopping or major decorating or even stressing over meals. I spent some time letting Indiana know that Duke, the wonderful boy who was our foster dog for a few months would be coming to spend the weekend with us. I wanted Indy to look forward to it, but not to be worried or concerned. Well, it turned out that was the last thing I should have worried about. Duke came and was the perfect house guest, charming and sweet he spent time cuddling with me and Indy. And I'm grateful that he was with us as I think he helped Indy get through what could have otherwise been a couple of tough days. Once again, I am grateful to have loving, sensible and gentle animals in my life. They keep reminding me that it's important to keep your sense of humor and to find a positive point of view in any situation. Thanks so much boys.

Sweet Indiana

Silly Indy. Rolled up his favorite blanket to lie down, but he kept stumbling and falling down. Never fear, he's a clever boy, he eventually braced himself against a chair and just slid down. He's managing very well.

Indy is my boxer buddy. He turned five years old this past July and is in the prime of his doggy life, but he's hit a few bumps this past year. Read more @

Relax and Recharge Retreat - Update

I had the great pleasure of co-hosting a retreat a few weeks ago. Five women attended. I simply cannot say enough good things about this retreat. Within a very short time of meeting one another these women were sharing, supporting and encouraging one another as though they had known and cared about each other for years. We ate, walked, experienced Psych-K, participated in guided meditations, had Reiki, created vision boards and shared life experiences.

The retreat was held at my lake house and as I sit at the same house this very moment, I can almost hear the laughter as stories are told, taste the cleansing tears of burdens shared and feel my heart fill up with the love, caring and support that was so freely shared. Only a few of us knew one another prior to this retreat. I knew two of the women, one pretty well, the other only slightly. Melissa Heisler, my co-host knew one of the other women and two women who were close friends were strangers to everyone else when they arrived. It simply didn't matter. Every woman had the option to share as much or little as she chose, being guided by what was right for her in the moment. All I can say is that it was perfect. And I can't wait to do it again.d

Melissa and I discovered that we truly enjoy working together and that we make a darned good team! Because of that, we will be co-hosting more retreats in the future. Look for information about the next retreat February 5 -7 and also retreats in May and November of 2010.
