effluvia and meat hooks

Conversations in Going Deeper Musing on Transformation Transformation sounds so sexy don’t you think? Too bad it isn’t. I know you know what I’m talking about  – those of us who have walked through any up close and personal experience of deep transformation know (sigh!) that it is anything but sexy. I think immediately of effluvia – tears and snot and spit and bodily fluids. Of curling in a fetal position. Or fists...

So if we must talk about creativity there is a word which I hold close to me, a word I am hesitant to say in a public forum because, for me, it is sacred. Do you have words like that? Words that mean more to you than any casual use? If there were a way I could write this column without invoking...

chocolate questions to tickle the intuition

Conversations in Going Deeper Musing on Vision Here in the “dangerous territory” of the Cosmic Cowgirl Magazine we walk a premarked trail. Twelve big words brand this particular stardusty path, left out as glyph marks, as signposts…words that include IDENTITY, PERSPECTIVE, CREATIVITY, REVOLUTION… Join me, won’t you, past the question of who you are, past the question of where you come from, and here in the wide...
