I first met Sandra Hunter at Ghost Ranch during the 2011 A Room of Her Own Foundation Retreat. She lead us in a beautiful breath-inspired meditation. In advance of the retreat, I started a series of short Reading…


Marketing and The Poetry of Motherhood: Sustaining Your Joy Factor

Posted on April 18, 2013 at 1:00pm 2 Comments

Tucked away in the woods on dial- up for the last three years with three kids, I drank so much caffeine in town during school hours at Starbucks for free Wifi that my adrenals have yet to forgive me. Crazy, in retrospect, trying to teach on-line while the kids were in school and by night, college English, pushing the…

Thanks Tania! I'm learning to do stuff in small bites but Some days I forget I don't have the big chunks I had this time last year!

Oh my golly Tania. Here is a really funny coincidence. Barbara was born in a town 20 minutes north of me and was here in the Berkshires at the Millay Colony on retreat. We had a sweet exchange. I will email you about guest blog posting. I hope your evening is lovely. I am so happy to be connected. xo S

Thank you for accepting. I enjoyed your blog post and your comments on my blog made me smile. I am packing up and heading to another beach town for a couple of weeks. Hopefully I will be very productive as there are a million things swirling around in my head that need to be released!

Hi, Tania,

Thanks so much--you're right, it IS nice to connect! Wow--what a busy house you must have. How do you find the time and willpower to write? I am still searching for that magic potion that will make family life, work, and writing all come together clearly.

I'll definitely check out your blog!

Thanks again,

PS: OF COURSE, I'd be honored to be interviewed! Any time. I have a fantastic story about how SOP came about and I'm happy to share "the process." The better way to reach me is at norined@ix.netcom.com. Looking forward to talking with you!

The Way of Water or What to Do with My Anger

My anger seethes. In theory, I know it is not healthy, yet I seek out what produces it. It’s an addiction. My anger came to a peak after watching the movie “Welcome to Sarajevo.” Critics claimed it was not accurate and that there are better movies…See More
