Succulent Wild Cat

My cat Jupiter lived for 17 years as my “fur husband” and when he departed physically, he became one of my primary spirit guides and an oracle on my website, Planet SARK. When Jupiter was a young cat, he stood on his hind legs and peeled a poem I had written off the wall, after…

Succulent Wild Men

When I published Succulent Wild Woman in 1997, all the men came out for that book.  I had added a line on the back that said; “Men are welcome in the land of Succulent Wild Women.” And they really were. The men were peering around the bookshelves and raising their hands at my boisterous book…

Begin aGAIN

As I’m about to teach one of my favorites courses of all time – Write It NEW with SARK (aka WINS), it feels good to know that GAIN is in that word, because I’m also feeling some loss about it. This is the last time that I’ll be teaching WINS live.

Love is like Really Hot Chocolate

Dear Life-loving Human, As we took the clothes out of the dryer, I noticed major rust colored streaks on almost every piece of clothing! I immediately thought that it must be something in the machine at the laundromat until I saw John’s sheepish expression. He said, “I think it may have something to do with…

Small Shapes, Big Hearts

I want to deeply thank everyone who responded in writing or sent loving energies to me about my experiences about the death of my older brother. I wrote about it here. My godchild Jonah graduated from third grade last week, and I took this photo of a little fish on the wall at his school….

Grieving is Like Flowers

Enjoying Where You’re At

I found this message written on a wall on one of my hikes recently. It reminded me of course, to enjoy where I was at. It also delighted me that people write things like this. The whole world occurs to me like a living book, with people creating on its surfaces everywhere. We are invited…
