proofs ready from the printer!

Friday before Memorial Day weekend and what a busy day it has been!  I picked up my proofs about an hour ago.  They look great (if I do say so myself).  I’ve been looking at them on a computer screen for so long that it seemed funny to hold them in my hand!  Sarah came […]

up and running

I thought tonight that maybe it’s no coincidence that I’m back running!  I just began running (slow jogging or slogging as I call it) about 2 weeks ago.  Last fall I began having problems with my right knee and lower back.  Mark convinced me to see his chiropractor.  My Dad used to see a chiropractor […]

it’s happening!

It’s nearly noon on Monday, May 24th.  I’ve got a month exactly to get my cards printed (hopefully end of this week for proofs/next week for real thing), catalog complete and website up an running before the Denver Int’l New Age Trade Show that I’m going to participate in! I paid for a 1/2 booth […]

credibility/integrity

I got an email this morning from a good friend in Seattle.  She had read my blog and was amazed I was reading a book by James Arthur Ray.  She went on to say that he was the guy that had been arrested in Arizona for manslaughter after 3 people died in a sweat lodge […]

great book we are reading

Mark and I read most mornings.  It was a habit we developed when first married (2 + years ago) and were striving to figure out how to become a couple.  We take turns reading out loud and also developed the (good) habit of meditation.  Can’t say I’m a pro at that one yet but I […]

embracing where I live

I know that may appear to be a strange title for an entry but it is a thought I’ve had the past few days.  I moved to San Francisco in January of ’09.  There’s a long story to that move but suffice it to say that although a part of me wanted to change my […]

rolling along…catching steam

It’s the final push to get the cards ready for the printer.  I ordered the UPC codes online.  Artwork is provided along with the numbers.  In a working session with Sarah today we finalized the design of the back of the cards, worked out a few problems I couldn’t solve on my own, and came […]

networking at nopa event

Mark and I attended a nopa (north of the panhandle) networking event last night at a funky shop called Swankity Swank.  Mark befriended Kip, who has pulled this networking group together, at his favorite hangout, Cafe Abir.  Kip did a great job hosting the event, getting people to introduce themselves in 30 second spots and […]

new life at midlife

I just worked on crafting an email to the editors of More Magazine as I submitted an article I began when taking a non fiction writing class at the SF Writer’s Grotto last fall.  Ethan, the instructor, loved the richness of my “story” and encouraged me to work on small essay’s that I might submit […]

can’t sleep

Decided to get up after tossing and turning for a good while.  I kept thinking of things I wanted to blog about…might as well get up and do so rather than try to recall in the morning, I figured. First off, grateful to have internet access back.  Comcast showed up this morning (Monday, after no […]
