I posted this meditation originally on August 14th, 2017. I was recovering from shoulder surgery, two dogs had passed away, and I was pondering the decisions that took me from the life I made in NJ, to the one I have now. I didn’t know what to expect then, but now, looking back, I know the lesson of surrender & acceptance I learned during this difficult passage is what continues to sustain me today. I hope someone else finds comfort knowing peace is possible, even in the darkest moments, when… Read more Die before you die →
I’m wrapping up a program at Rutgers this week, and I’m writing about Jung’s shadow. I came across this passage in my reading today, and noted how much it resonated. It’s Carl Jung himself, (though I modified the pronouns): “It is often tragic to see how blatantly a human bungles their own life and the lives of others yet remains totally incapable of seeing how much the whole tragedy originates in themselves, and how they continually feed it and keep it going. Not consciously, of course – for consciously they… Read more We’re all in process →

Jamis has rattled around inside my head for twenty years. I could never quite get it together enough to bring her to the world. Until I did, unexpectedly, in late 2017. It took another two years to get here – and an amazing editor who believed in me. The music I associated with the story was constant. I’ve created a playlist on Spotify to share with you. Click below for the playlist – and read on for my commentary. Jamis, The Music Jamis/Johnna “Crazy” – Shawn Colvin This… Read more Jamis Bachman, Ghost Hunter – The Music →

Junie, I don’t know what this planet is because it can be awful. Being born and growing old and hurting along the way is stupid. There must be a better way to exist and I know that is where you’ve gone. I’m upset you must go without me because I know that scares you. I know you feel better when we are together. I do too.
