Arte Lessons

Yup, Arte Lessons, with an e. Yes, it’s pretentious but I like the distinction. We’re not talking about crayons and paste here, we’re talking about the fine and subtle art of recognizing and consciously manipulating the various vibrations and energies that surround us. The same energies that we ignore and allow to manipulate us most […]

What is lost? (revisited)

What is lost? In less than six months I’ve managed to lose one child to death, one child to a long overdue change in custody and one child to my own unreasonable and unhealthy expectations. I’ve found and lost a roommate (though I’m awfully glad he’s gone) and lost two cats; one to life with […]
