In this episode, I had the opportunity to visit with one the most industrious and caring people I know, Jill Leo, Director of the Natchitoches Historic District Business Association & Natchitoches Main Street.

Sharing has been dangerous, and while I feel the need to tell the truth of momma's life toward death, I know it is a lot more than most can bear—I am still trying to determine if I can bear it as well (I can—I will). There have been friends—brothers and sisters, who have opened their hearts in ways that have been very helpful. They make a space that holds the pain, and then they put their hands on it—they do not seem afraid to bear witness.

I have often considered this clean east-west alignment a bit of a hinge-moment, a...

Today is my mother’s birthday. She is spending it in the hospital facing serious health complications—it is an evolving set of circumstances. The Dharma and practice have been good medicine, but I am in need of a larger dose day-to-day as I walk with my mother. This morning I woke to watch the decline of the Harvest Moon, and shortly after, I was blessed to sit and watch Sol rising as I sipped warm coffee with my ancestors, particularly my grandmother who passed into memory just a few...

09. December 2021
It was a profound moment of illumination in the midst of deep personal pain and set in motion years of curious seeking, discovery, experience, and practice that has offered shelter over my life to this very day. Perhaps this was the reason I so enjoyed the new book by Steve Taylor, "Extraordinary Awakenings: When Trauma Leads to Transformation," and why I was so eager to have him visit me on "Find the Good News." Steve's new book is a collection of potent awakening stories spanning across a wid
