Just As I Am

Have you ever been made wrong for who you are? For what you want to do with your life? For just being you?

I was a successful young woman working in high technology making a great salary and on top of my world. Owning and driving that porsche made my wild child happy! We had arrived in two cars, so...

The Breathless Moment Before a New Story

 by Annette Wagner, M.A. As my body relaxed, covered in rose petals, laying in a tub of warm water, this thought trickled into my brain from my heart.  The stories that run my life, the ones hidden in deep dark crevices can be changed.

Are You Leaning In? The TABOO of Not Talking.

By Annette Wagner, Managing Editor Have you noticed when life hands us health challenges, we don’t talk about them? Things that can be potentially life-threatening. Issues that make you change how you live day to day. Stuff that scares the hell out of you because it might kill you. Or not. Many of us seem to make a habit of just not going into all the gory details for fear of – what, exactly? That we might sound like we are...

The Legacy of Sue Hoya Sellars

Dear Ones, Our very precious friend, teacher, mentor and Beloved Art Matriarch is in the “in between worlds” right now. After a very difficult bypass surgery she hasn’t returned to us and we are shock as well as staying in wonder at her process. As we write this we have been sitting vigil by her bedside for over ten days and it has been 6 days since surgery – wondering when and if, she will awake. We are in...
