I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.


21 sunny days

I know it takes 21 days to form a habit, and I want to make sure I am doing at least SOME yoga every day. I like the way I feel when I do yoga, and 21 sunny days sounds like a great way to welcome spring and get my body ready for everything else ...


Coming Soon!

I'm teaching!

Writing is an act of excavating, an uncovering of layers and discovering our own depths and imagination. Many people view writing as a lonely craft. Holly believes that when we are present and honest on the page, we can take that experience into our lives and have richer, more dynamic relationships.


Flagstaff Update 03/08/08

Everything is unfolding as it should (and will) -- even the uncomfortable stuff.


Howdy from Flagstaff 03/02/2008

I filed for divorce. I finally figured out that I can file from Arizona since I'm a citizen here, rather than NY. I also figured out that as an Arizona citizen I didn't have to wait a year to file! Ah well, a year has passed. In a little more than a month I shall have the divorce decree. I am grateful I don't have to come back to NY to file--and it's a lot cheaper to file from here than there.

This poem is being published in Earth's Daughter's magazine "Fragments" issue. It should be out soon.


Tribal Illness?

I've been reading Carolyn Myss' book, Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing, and she links the 1st Chakra with our "Tribe" and with survival. The 1st chakra affects our legs, bones, lower spine and immune systems. If we have significant stress, those parts of our physical bodies may be affected. In the tribal case, we may experience epidemics.


I miss my Little Sis

She makes me laugh. I know she won't visit me, I'm too far away from any ocean for her comfort.
