self-portrait, take 2

lately the whole world’s a mirror.

for the past month,

i’ve been showing up with pen in hand

every single day

to write no less than 1000 words.

that kind of mindful consistency

changes a woman.





(thanks, binduangela & julie)

    yes. yes. a practice. confirming process. being your self. realizing who that might be.

    You know – I read this and Self-portrait pt 1 and I’m smiling…I LOVE how you can write to the heart and with the heart in both short, succinct pieces (like these two lovelies — and with PERFECT photos to illustrate) and also in long, roving posts or notes — it’s like reaching out and touching hearts is your blood (I purposefully didn’t say “IN your blood” – it just plain IS your blood). I’m smiling and grateful – thanks for this!!

    I love the two images – the reveal completely took me by surprise, which I adored. You are so full of light, my friend!

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
