now

My NOW (October 2020) looks like this:

Things have upheaved. And that’s not bad at all.

I still have pretty much EVERYTHING a modern world citizen could want. Relative health, a home, financial resources, and a pantry full of food and toilet paper. COVID-19 has been a known threat for 7 months, and I am changed.

I have new love, an adventure pirate who sparked a connection that took us both by surprise in late March. I have a soul-affirming misfit love, distant in miles but ever closer in heart. That’s right: I have two deeply loving romantic partners. Even still this humbles me and swells my heart with joy.

I have dear friends who I consider my tribe. But after so many months of safety-first there’s a craving to TOUCH many humans that I cannot. To share space.

  • Still writing about my soul and occasionally composing halfway decent poetry on my “shadow” Instagram account.
  • Cultivating new skills and creations at my day job at a creative agency, landed just in the nick of pandemic time.
  • THREE separate growth-oriented courses in progress. Learning embodied therapy for healing self and others. Connecting to wounded inner child. And digging deeper into the Great Big Journey.
