Word Musings

Words let us down,
make us cry,
leave us searching.

We sit with them,
lose them,
and are guided by them.

Words are celebrated,
stick to our hearts,
and leave us feeling motivated.

We overthink them,
say too many or too little,
and hang on their every meaning.

They transform our lives…

Will you marry me?

I’m pregnant!

We regret to inform you…


I quit.

Why not?

I’m in.



Words can be everything or nothing.

I hope you find, speak, read, write and hear the ones that mean everything in this fresh, new year.


While attending a retreat in a Bali, I took this photo of a wall-mounted, fabric mantra that hung confidently in our living space. It impressed me then and stuck to my heart every day since.
