I Am What a Wealthy Woman Looks Like

About twice a year, I find myself climbing a wave of positive mindset potential, and I try to ride it like I'm channeling Duke Kahanamoku on any average Tuesday. These periods of self-exploration usually coincide with someone's free 5-day workshop, and for some reason the leaders of said workshops are usually blonde and bubbly and... Continue Reading →

Money Flows to Me

Every so often the planets align (or something; I don't know, I'm not a planetologist!) and I move into a woo phase, during which I become convinced that I can manifest all of my wildest dreams. Or, at least a bigger paycheck. If you've read any of my older musings you might remember something I... Continue Reading →

I liked it.... Continue Reading →

When Princess Diana Dies

I realized, only just this morning, that I could die. I can’t say that this had never occurred to me before but, as a rule, this passing thought is followed by such dramatic and cartoonish images that a good shake of the head has always worked to send them away. I’ve had terribly violent and... Continue Reading →

Pardon the Dust

I'm super excited, although literally butt-hurt, because I've been sitting alllll damn day in my pretty new office, which is our old trailer, working on separating my website into two separate entities. One for the blog and general riff-raff, one for my 'professional' work. Both are still being tweaked and likely will be forever and... Continue Reading →
