Mom & Me & Mom

Purple fish
I just finished listening to  a wonderful autobiography by Maya Angelou, called Mom & Me and Mom.  I loved that the book was read in her own sonorous voice.  As you can imagine, Maya spoke about what it means to be a mother.

Spring and Beautiful smells

Most weekday mornings, I try to go for a walk with Pixie, our 11 year old Golden Retreiver. She usually gives me  clear messages that it is time to go out. She often will not eat breakfast because she is afraid that I will leave without her. Sometimes I have but it was because it was just too hot or too much poison ivy on the tow path. She has definitely learned to be wary of my sudden exits out of the door.

However today, she had her breakfast and  we did go for a walk in the Perennial Garden at Colonial Park.

Changes and New Beginnings, part 2


While I was in England,  I thought about how I would shift things once I returned to NJ. I flew back to NJ last  Tuesday and began working again on Wednesday. I have  once again decided to change  my psychotherapy practice by offering two hour sessions when needed instead of the regular weekly meetings. After 30 years of being a psychotherapist,  I have  noticed  that  deeper healing work is more effective when you meet for a longer time and less often.

Time away and new beginnings

Mom and Baby Ben
I have just returned from a three week trip to Northern England to visit my new grandson,Ben. I had been warned that holding him was going to be an amazing experience and I could not even imagine the feeling.  Well, it is true. I loved holding him and looking into his enormous blue eyes. I did not think that I would become  the Grandmother that would pull out my i phone and share the camera roll either and I am doing that. Oh well, I am okay with all of it. So this is a quick sketch  from my camera roll on my iPad.
