Recapturing the View

Recapturing the View

In most cases, it takes a lot of bravery for someone to call me and talk about their relationship to clothing. Usually, a discouraging or frustrating view of their closet prompts the call when they realize its current contents will not support their new opportunities....

Thoughts on Self Image

Thoughts on Self Image

Self image is often talked about in the media. What it means and how to get it, and why we don’t have it. The conventional way of finding our self image seems to always points us to ourselves with quotes such as: To the question of your life, you are the only answer,...

Nature is not a Deity

Nature is not a Deity

It seems silly now, but when I moved to Louisiana from the northwest, I screamed at every single bug that crossed my path. Mostly because I had never seen them, nor knew what could be good in their presence in my house. I credit my uncle for teaching me that not all...

What is Responsible Stewardship?

Each weekday morning at 5:00 I watch our apartment custodian dutifully haul recycling bins from several floors to the compactor. I’m not sure he’s thinking he’s saving some part of the ocean from plastics, but I do know that he cares. I’ve seen him carefully remove...

Fitting in

Fitting in

I’ve never been good at fitting in. Being invisible maybe, but not fitting in. Awkward, shy, but endlessly curious as a child, I tried hard to match my mother’s outgoing personality. But I never could. Instead, as I matured, I began to repeat myself to be heard. Light...
