Welcome home weary traveller! What a wonderful thing it is to be there and then here. It does feel like a time warp, doesn't it?

Miss you. (xo)

I do remember, and I am so very happy for your beautiful daughter Marissa and all of you! Despite the pain she must have felt back then, it really was all about leading her to this joy!


i am so happy you are home for now, tucked into your studio, creating what ever your warm and beautiful heart desires! How i wish I could come over and see just what it is you are creating...and stay and play. ;-)
Marissa & Mick look so happy and perfect together! fate is amazing, isn't it!?!
sending you much love on this beautiful fall day. xo

Growing and growing; that's how I see this past year as you've challenged yourself with bigger and bigger feats and mastered each of them with grace.

Mexico will be a sweet time of rest and joy for all of you; congratulations to Marissa and thank goodness providence does sometimes find ways to protect us.

Much love to you. xo

Lovely photos -- thanks for sharing them, as well as your words! I wish you and your family much joy as the big wedding day approaches.


my darling,
i read each word and loved every one. i want to see that love chair, of the caring heart, that resides beside the beauty of the tahuya river, whose reflection welcomes home a wise soul, ever growing...
love to you...

I remember Marisa's close call all too well, and am thrilled that she's found happiness again. And happy for you that you have happy children! Enjoy the wedding, sounds perfect!


A wedding on the beach in Cancun. Oh what a dreamy spot to take those everlasting vows. I loved this post, your spirit. Will love seeing the pics of your trip and the classes. Oh what joy!!
Enjoy the wedding and the bonding of two families into one. :-)
