My Now, a List

IMG_5862

So go ahead, make your next bold move.  Tell us, what’s the next thing you’re gonna need to prove to yourself? Ani DiFranco

October was all about shining the light on the brave souls around me. I turned the tables on myself today and made this list.  My now.  Raw and unedited.

The song I can’t get out of my head:  Ani Difranco’s Your Next Bold Move from her Reckoning album.

My most cherished thing:  The ring my Grandma gave me to use as my wedding ring.  It was a ring my Grandpa had given her; they were married nearly 72 years.  It reminds me of my family of origin and the family I am creating.

Favorite book:  The Giver.  And Desert Solitaire.  And Body and Soul.

Tools of my trade:  Vision books and spirit guides.  My IPhone and Mac laptop.  A Moleskine notebook.  My Golden Earth Chakra oil for stability and abundance.

Studied:  Philosophy and Psychology. As well as tap dancing and violence prevention.

Favorite trip:  Our honeymoon to Tomales Bay in California. Staying at Manka’s Inverness Lodge, soaking in a wooden hot tub outside and buiding fires in our cabin.

My shelter–and happy place:  On the couch with my love watching taped Top Chef and eating arugula pizza. Dreaming of my Airstream trailer on my Pinterest board. Reading to them at bedtime.

I secretly want to be…ten again. Reading Little House on the Prairie after school and climbing trees and playing my boombox in my bedroom where my first vision board hung.

My favorite outfit:  Anything with my boots from Texas.

Best gift ever:  A plane ticket for Christmas to see my sister perform in an opera in San Diego.

I secretly love…donuts. And Instagram. The horoscopes in Elle magazine.

What fuels me:  The stories I hear. My children. One in three. Spirit guides. French pressed coffee.

Favorite movies:  Crash.  Sliding Doors. Knocked Up. And The English Patient.

Things/people/work I adore:  Lists and letters from Isabel. Daily pics from Alisha and Misty. Hannah’s Magic Making Circle. Anything written by Danielle LaPorte.
