Transitus - August 12

Laura died one year ago on August 12th at 8:20pm EDT. I was in her bed, speaking to her as her breath slowed, then slowed again, then slowed, and then slowed again. Softer and softer until I knew it was her last exhale. It has been a roller coaster of blurred time for me since then. Words don’t begin to describe the many ways that grief manifests in a human.

A Revelatory Night

When Laura was dying, she often had moments of deep clarity in the middle of the night. Sometimes she would wake me up during the night or I’d hear about something amazing in the morning when she would awake.

In These Times

I haven’t written for a quite a few months. Sometimes it is so damn hard to set pen to paper. Facing a blank page means having to face yourself, your life. You know? No barriers. No editing. My open notebook does that. I meet the moment with equal parts curiosity and dread!

A New Decade - Start Slow

Hold off until February for your new year’s resolutions! Okay? Just hold off. February will come fast enough – it is only four weeks away.

Truth Speaking Softly

The soft curve of the day meets me and invites discovery Gently I awaken to wonderment with eyes clouded over by too much pain or too much looking for pain It is so familiar, this search for intensity, this search for words to somehow express

One Wild and Precious Life

We are about to tear down our little cottage. It was built in the early eighties and has been lived in by three families including ours. We bought it a few months after Laura was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013.  We had rented cottages for summer vacations off and on over the years.

Spirals of Development

I remember being in the middle of a conversation with a client when she said, "Shouldn't I have this thing licked by now? It has been around at different times my whole life and I thought I had taken care of it the last time. I’ve worked so hard on this." Her voice got quiet as she reached the last word.

Sitting With Death

Sitting meditation is a core practice for Integral Coaching Canada students. This practice helps our coaches develop the quiet, receptive minds necessary to sit with their clients… and to sit with their lives.

But You Also Eat Jello

There is a new voice that I am writing with these days. It is a voice that has a louder baritone. It has no falsetto. It is an unnerving new sound. Lower. Wider. Slower. I don't recognize it as mine yet.
