[Body, Mind & Spirit] The Only Reason To Do Anything Is for Love

Most Mondays I wake up raring to go. Some days I hit the ground running, but other days, the sheer number of things I want (and tell myself I “have” to do) paralyzes me. My best defense is to dump everything that’s swirling around inside my head onto the page. This morning my to-do list looked like this: Meditation and…See More

[Body, Mind & Spirit] Light Meditation for Dark Times

One of my life intentions is to relish the joy of self-expression. But lately I’ve been reluctant to say what I think, especially on social media and in my blog posts. This is partly because posting anything other than politics these days has felt trivial, and political conversations can easily erupt into flames. Putting out…See More

"I felt exactly the same way. I have known for some time that SWP would work for me. And I only had to be burned by a would-be agent once to learn my lesson. I will be signing up with She Writes Press in the weeks to come."

Thank you so much for adding me and sending me that beautiful message. I have been hoping to find some friends on She writes but didn't know how to go about that.

Hi Bella, Yes, I'm publishing with SWP in June 2016. It's terrific to connect with you here. I'm still absorbing your wisdom about acceptance and the "fierce cauldron of the heart". I've been practising your exercise too. So wise, so beautiful! Thank you!

Bella, such great tips. I really needed to read them. I have been procrastinating in working on my next book because it speaks to my journey as a mammographer. The life experiences of  my patients have and are sharing with me are often filled with some horrific circumstances unrelated to their reason for being in my space , a mammogram. I appreciate your vulnerability and willingness to share. It will propel me into action.

Thank you!

Thanks much for the invitation.  Here I am ready to do more on She Writes, after several years of busy muteness.  Happy Spring!

How wonderful to have new writer friends. I'm looking forward to hearing more from you and will check out your web site and anywhere else you can be found.

Christmas can be such a mess of expectations and interactions. To keep perspective is essential.

Sometimes inner guidance sounds more like a whisper than a growl. It might stalk you from behind a flowering Camellia bush and distract you with red blossoms. It might tap you on the shoulder and then run away. It may wonder how many times or in what ways it needs to tell you the…
