Being a Loud Woman and Other Tales of Making People Uncomfortable.

As the great poet Moana once said, “The call isn’t out there at all, it’s inside me.”   I have a voice.   It is loud.   It gets louder, when I get excited.   My yoga teacher trainer said I was the only person she has ever had to tell at teacher training to […]

Mom Bravery

When I was 19 years old I wasn’t sure if I cared about anyone. Deep down, of course I did. Yet, watching my parents marriage conclude. Seeing my childhood home get sold. Regularly assuming that I could possibly find my alcoholic Mom dead in the house any day now. Unsure what I was meant to […]

Dad
