honoring your rhythm. slow motion day.

Tomorrow is the equinox.   The halfway point between summer and winter solstice. The time when light and darkness are equal. If you live in the northern hemisphere, the days will be getting shorter and the nights longer. You’re entering into the winter. A time of nurturing and rest. A time to relax and tune inwards.Continue Reading

art all year long.

art all year long.

I hear from women every day who want to access their creativity, who want to make it a part of their lives. Two things stop them. 1) They don’t feel creative. They don’t know how to start. 2) They don’t have the finances to commit. If you can relate, I’ve got something just for you…Continue Reading

support. because you can’t do it alone.

support. because you can’t do it alone.

Most of my life I didn’t trust women. I know I’m not alone. We’ve hurt one another. It’s time for healing. It’s time to support one another again.   When I first joined my hālau (hula dance school) the hardest thing to get used to was being around all these women who were so welcoming.Continue Reading

don’t lose it.

  You may have stuffed it, but everyone feels the urge to create. If we don’t, we know something is missing. We ache for it.   When I was younger, I loved drawing and writing stories. I felt so alive and free in my imagination. I remember my teacher in 3rd grade telling me writersContinue Reading

listening to the wrong guidance

Most of my life, I’d trust my feelings. I’d listen to what felt good. If I started to feel unsure, I’d reevaluate. If it felt hard, a sign to go another direction.

It doesn’t come naturally to brag on yourself and what you rocked. Most of us see what didn’t work. We focus on what we could or should have done. ThenContinue Reading
