Dealing with The Voices in Your Head

Fredric Varady for Canon Nylons

There’s a little voice inside your head – it’s unique to you, yet each one of us has one. Oh, let’s be honest, we all have more than one little voice inside us. Most of us have five. There are the voices of Wisdom and Intuition. That inner knowing that edges us to make decisions […]

Shared Ritual Is You Choosing Love Over Fear

Edwin Georgi for English Woman Magazine 1958

We have a ritual on workdays. JB comes home from work, we open a bottle of wine, and we sit out on the deck and talk about our respective days. This is harder on him than I; he is an introvert around people all day and I am the extrovert who works alone at home. […]

circusbyjoedemers

When I was a little girl, especially after a rotten day, I would contemplate running away to the circus.
