Row, row, row your boat…


“Row, Row , Row your boat gently down the stream

Merrilly, Merrily, Merrily,

Life is bout a dream”


The Toltec leaders say our lives our are dream. What we dream we live and what we live is the dream. One of my oldest and dearest heart friends offered her happiness to me as a gift that , “I was following my dreams.” Dreams are a funny thing. Once you follow one, another one opens up and then another and another and before we know it, we have this life that we never knew we could dream but we did.

Living my dream brought my family to the West, to Sedona Arizona. This dream opened up our hearts and spirits in ways my wife and I never realized possible. I believe our son and all children live their dream, their essence in every moment. Sedona opened up our consciousness about living a different kind of life. A life that is about change, flexibility, and growth. This adventure we are on is hard at times and exhilarating at others.

As a mama, I strive to offer and share stability, routine, and balance for my son who is discovering the world and all it joys and pains every day.

The Toltec say this is our heaven, our daily lives, so lets live it into existence. I believe that. There is nothing better or more fulfilling than this present moment with my wife, my son, and my dogs. So my wish for all of you is honor your dream as you live it. Gently bid goodbye to people or beliefs or attitudes that only harm you and your beautiful heart. Hold steady as you let in your true hearts desire and realize the experience as it unfolds.

And may we all remember to float gently and with laughter.


And watch excellent shows like Billions!!!
