A Subtle Shift in the Light

There are, I believe, pivotal moments in every life. This idea is one that has been much explored in literature, philosophy, art. What a blessing it is, I think, to be gifted with self-awareness in such moments, to be able to feel the subtle shift in the energy of the universe. Of course, sometimes that… Continue reading A Subtle Shift in the Light

Letting Go of the Tiger’s Tail

If you've got the tiger by the tail, then doesn't the tiger have you as well? I thought something was hanging onto me, that I couldn't shake loose.
