42 Reasons to be Grateful in my 42nd year

As a celebration of life for another year, a rejoicing in all the good in my life, here I list 42 of the things for which I am most grateful.

This list began when I was pregnant, uncomfortable and overwhelmed. Thus, I wrote in my journal simply listing as many pieces of my life that make me happy and full of love.

It’s amazing what you can learn about your own life in just ten minutes of writing.

Sunrise Over Salta: Life and writing are in the details

I began taking these sunrise photos to remind myself that even in a small space, with very little change of place or time, life offers a spectacular range of vision, beauty and variation.

If you remember this well, you can find endless variation for the vision of your writing which in turn guides the vision of your life.

Want to see what I saw from my balcony every morning for the last two years? Check out this photo essay.

7 Successful Leaders Inspire You With Stories of Failure and Rejection

This post has been a labor of love, sparked by my frustration at seeing so many talented and creative people giving up because they’re stymied by their fear of failure.

So I set out to prove through the work of leaders in varying fields that failure is not only part of the process, it helps you move forward and grow.

Plus a little rule of thumb to help you move past rejection with ease, grace and your ego in tact.

And that’s why mamas make the best writers

Happy mother’s day to all you mamas out there.

This is a call to everyone one of you who has said to yourself “I’d like to write something.” Maybe a memoir, maybe a novel, maybe you’re not sure yet, but you know you want to put pen to paper.

I wrote this just for you!

A portrait on the eve of Lila’s tenth birthday

Impossible to believe it’s been five years since we moved to Salta. Even more impossible to believe how much Lila has grown and changed. Now, we’re on the cusp of a new baby joining our home. If you’ve spent any time on this website, I’m sure you’ve read about it.

Happy birthday, Lila! I can’t wait to see what the next five years bring.

What is my writing process & how can it work for you?

My writing process has developed over time. It is this very process that keeps me from ever experiencing writer’s block. How? Two key elements.

In this post, I’ll also let you know why I write and the two main projects I have happening now. I’d love some of your input to help with one of them.

A Little Strip of Coast Under Coconut Sky

There’s a little road that traces the edge of the sea along Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. It’s mostly unpaved, lots of potholes and makes for an extremely slow uncomfortable journey.

Go anyway. It’s more than worth it.

The rough and tumble bus ride brought me to this little piece of heaven. It inspired me and freed me. I can’t wait to go back.

Maybe you’ll even come with me one day soon.

Happy birthday to me! Have I got something for you!

This year on my birthday, I’m giving gifts instead of receiving. Yes, I’m giving away 10 one-on-one writing and mentoring sessions.

Read on to find out how you can get in on this!

How telling your story empowers you! Plus, I’ll tell you mine.

Each of us has a personal story that we tell and retell, not only to let others know who we are but to remind ourselves of our own value.

Our stories tell us where we’ve been which in turn guides us toward the future. I tell mine here! Now, will you share yours with me?

Home has many meanings; home floats

I often read definitions of people who travel vs those who don’t. Date a girl who travels. Travel when you’re young. On and on. We juxtapose being settled, in one place with living freely. I disagree with such distinctions.

But there is no place or time that means home. Instead, home floats. We can find it anywhere.
