Empathy Is A Necessity!
I’m ashamed. I have been someone who feels so deeply that when things feel really uncomfortable and unfair, I hide my head in my own little world and pretend that racist people don’t exist. That’s not effective because the ignorance still circulates and when I poke my head back out, nothing has changed. I cannotContinue reading “Empathy Is A Necessity!”
Today, I Am A Tree!
Today was all about trees. I started my yoga practice amongst the trees, then I walked through the most beautiful neighborhood full of trees. I felt their amazing energy. Trees are the quintessential observers of life. We are very much like trees. We stand up tall, we have a crown at the top and weContinue reading “Today, I Am A Tree!”

Outside Is Open!
I’m a lucky woman! I live in Ventura county and we did not have as many cases and as many deaths as Los Angeles county and surrounding counties so the trails are open! Wow, what a difference riding my bike on the trail makes! It was lovely out there today. I saw a kick assContinue reading “Outside Is Open!”
Making Days Count!
The first month of Quarantine proved to be frustrating–up and down and all around in emotions. I developed some bad habits and I don’t feel good. I’m happy to report that the next round of 30 days is going to be far different! Instead of watching the news on television, reading news on the internetContinue reading “Making Days Count!”
Me In My Genie Bottle
This is where magic happens.
It feels like my HANDS are getting out of shape! This is me looking very professional as a Massage Therapist. While I’m still getting my exercise, it feels like my HANDS are getting out of shape! I haven’t massaged any BODY in over a month! I can still get out and practice yoga, walk allContinue reading “Inactivity Hurts!”
Lots of people outside these days. It’s so great to see families walking together, and couples. I heard one of our television anchors (who is at home isolated) say that he and his wife haven’t taken a neighborhood walk together in years and years! Perhaps we needed this time. To stop running away from ourselves,Continue reading “Burrow In”
Pretty Much Home Bound
All my massage clients canceled for today. Seems we are all going to get lots of home time. It looks like I will only be seeing my animal clients. My private training client has his sister-in-law visiting from Iran. She arrived only two days ago. Since I live in a house with two 80 yearContinue reading “Pretty Much Home Bound”
I gotta tell it like it is even though I like to lean toward the positive. Let’s see, instead of stating the negative, I’m going to reframe it. Point Dume’ Natural Preserve is one of my favorite California Beauties. The giant yellow Coreopsis are my yearly obsession. This year, the plants did not thrive theContinue reading “This Year”

A Toxic Tangle–He’s Just A Wanna Be!
I was able to get through 54 years of life not even knowing what the word TOXIC meant. Oh sure, I knew it meant “bad for you” but I only experienced it through bad food or substances. Now I know! Toxic people are most always negative. Sure, they can put on a really good actContinue reading “A Toxic Tangle–He’s Just A Wanna Be!”
Bright Sunshiney Day!
Talk To The Animals
I’ve always spoken to animals as if they’re my closest friends. Most all animals will like you more when you just BE who you are toward them. Treat them like a living breathing BEING, not a pet and you’ll feel the fullness of connection at its best. Ive been opening my heart to animals sinceContinue reading “Talk To The Animals”
Can I Get A Connection!
Don’t you dare think that being left alone with just a bowl full of food, some water and a litter box is fine. We need someone to love us, pay attention to us, calm us down and make us feel loved and secure. Human touch, we need it!
Time In The Saddle–25 years!
I remember the first time I saw someone riding their bike up a dirt trail, I thought they were crazy, “who would want to do that?” A few years later, I was crazy because I wanted to do that! This year marks 25 years Mountain Biking in The Santa Monica Mountains! The very first rideContinue reading “Time In The Saddle–25 years!”

Life Doesn’t Have To Look A Certain Way!
Every mom I’ve ever known seems like a hero to me. I am in awe of what you mom’s represent to me. I tell every mother who is expecting a child, “you are the most powerful force on the planet!” To me, a mother is a superhero! It is flabbergasting to me what you do!Continue reading “Life Doesn’t Have To Look A Certain Way!”

The reason checking in with yourself is so important is because nothing is more important than that you FEEL good. If you are working for or dealing with someone and you notice you feel unease and a little tangled up inside, get a magnifying glass on that! That is emotional turmoil and a kind ofContinue reading “Gut Feelings!”
Time To Embrace My Wrinkles
Hey, Happy Earth Day! As I stand here in front of the Mountain Lilac, I am learning to embrace my wrinkles! I’m sure this will not be a popular trend but I’ve never gone along with the trends easily. I feel like we are all so obsessed with beauty and perfection. Every time we lookContinue reading “Time To Embrace My Wrinkles”
I’m feeling relaxed and safe. Most of the time I react from old programming. I have anger issues but Tara helps me feel secure , confident, and loved unconditionally.
yes, I am special
…just hanging out in the new couch.
Finnegan is full of feelings.
The only other living, breathing, beings out there on my mountain bike ride were two HORSES (with riders) and two jumbo COYOTES with a gorgeous full coat of red rusty fur! The coyotes were about 5 feet in front of me on the trail. We had a face-off as I approached and communicated with myContinue reading “Wild Animals”
Originally posted on Hiking Los Angeles, Malibu, Santa Monica Mountains:
I was flying down a singletrack trail on my mountain bike yesterday–the trail closed in and became a little brushy. There were curves and overgrown bushes so it was hard to look far enough ahead to see what was coming up. It felt like I…
27 Years of Living and Learning in Los Angeles !
June marks 27 years living in California. Here are 27 things I have learned about living in Los Angeles after 27 years of living here: 1) I really don’t have to fit in with the crowd here–NOR do I want to! 2) In time, everyone talks like a “Californian.” We say things like, “yeah, trafficContinue reading “27 Years of Living and Learning in Los Angeles !”
Their View Mirror
I have noticed something that I just keep getting clearer and clearer about it. Every time I get down or go into a depression, it is almost always because I am viewing my life from someone else’s view of me. To say it another way, I love my little life. I live in a funkyContinue reading “Their View Mirror”
Diary of A Massage Therapist–Energy!
Sometimes it’s nice to be able to share with someone at the end of a gratifying day, but since I had no one in my physical space to share with, I’m sharing with you! I’ve been giving and receiving massages almost 30 years. I don’t express enough gratitude for having learned the art of givingContinue reading “Diary of A Massage Therapist–Energy!”
I remember a time when if I were to read that title, “Angel Activity” I wouldn’t even bother reading the rest. I never believed in angels. It sounds really sweet and spiritual but I never gave it much thought. Our beliefs are sometimes hard to bust through, but it’s pretty incredible when they BUST! Recently,Continue reading “Angel Activity”
“What do these women wish to achieve by hiking up these hills in Malibu?” Imagine a very proper Brittish accent with a sort of chronic, cynical way of being in life asking this question, I was telling her about the out of town visitors I’ve been leading on private hikes in Malibu. Her words and the toneContinue reading “Malibu Hikers!”
I remember my first date EVER–the song playing on the radio was “Love Hurts” by Nazareth (https://youtu.be/6pHNkOQCIzkLove Hurts) Nick picked me up in his classic Oldsmobile, can’t remember the year but it was old. When he backed out of the driveway, his car wouldn’t go into forward drive! It was quite a scene. So, weContinue reading “Love Hurts”
