… so many insights and discoveries during this troubling coronavirus crisis… hmmm…

… I’m reminded how the most troublesome, disastrous scary time in my life proved to be life-changing in the most beautiful way on the other side… a refocus on what’s really important… slowing down, self care, listening to music – I mean really listening to music, like marveling at the genius of Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” genius glissando that starts the song instead of ending it – love that!… and a reminder that we already have all we really need with good food in the fridge, a well equipped kitchen, a good dog, warm bed, project we’re passionate about, supply of blank canvases, people to encourage & love, touching tree barks, going barefoot in the grass, and finally slowing down enough to marvel at the beauty in a simple moth that catches my attention tonight while walking my dog in the dark… so much more important and joy-filled than catching the latest coronavirus briefing video.

Happy New Year!… thank you for your friendship, sweet friends… here are my wishes for the coming year…


May 2020 bring us all joy, peace, and personal success. May 2020 be the year where kindness is the foundation of everything we do… what we give and what we receive. May 2020 be the year we notice miracles and embrace the divinity that is around us every day. May we slow down. Meditate. Take joy in good food, friends, and cooking healthy meals and enjoying them at leisure. May we love fiercely. May we take note of the things that excite our heart. Those things aren’t random, or by chance. Those things are our calling. May we chase after those things. May we take time every day to do the things we love. Exercise. Be around positive people who support us and are loving to all people. May we avoid negative people and drama. Embrace peace on a daily basis. Forgive. Read books that help us grow. Enjoy earthing/grounding, yoga, chakra balancing, tapping, and staying in alignment. And, finally may we all year listen to that voice that doesn’t use words. That voice won’t lead us astray. With love in my heart for you, I wish all of you a very happy New Year.
Love,
Ann xo
