“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."
(The Gospel of Thomas)
Come well! And thanks for your interest, curiosity, or whatever brought you to this page.
I used to have a picture of me with my head thrown back in bliss, and a beautiful Acapulco Bay behind me.
That photo was a true representation of my first few years living as an immigrant in two countries
(Mexico and Belize) that both graciously accepted me as a guest/tourist.
But I was inspired to replace that picture, with a truer representation
of my now (Jan 2023)... which is me, inside, at my desk.
Tropical living and expat life IS exciting. And there is another side, too.
Less popular, and rarely talked about.
For example, if you struggled with the customs, traditions or social expectations
of your home country... you will surely take those struggles with you wherever you go.
The same is especially true of issues of with neuro-divergence
(where your brain's wiring and firing strays from "the norm.")
I highlight those two factors because they -- together with a tremendous amount
of loss and grief (like so many!) -- have preoccupied my last few years.
February 2023 marks the seventh year since I left my country of origin.
I have learned and UNlearned so many things!
I'm most excited to write the peace and wholeness
that I cling to, and extend to you. 💜
