Like many, I’m a magpie – collector of beautiful, interesting, timely pieces that shape me, my clients, and my world. Here are a few. 

I wonder what helps you find your way?

This poem lives on the wall of my home and the rooms of my mind. It helps me remember how to get home, how to breathe, how to be.

Wild Geese

by Mary Oliver

You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. 

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting — over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

What gets you up in the morning?

“I rise in the morning torn between the desire to save the world or to savor it.”

– from the poem by Richard S. Gilbert, derived from EB White quote.
