Hey there. It’s been a LONG minute. Walk with me?
I have been grappling with what I have to give this community in so many ways. The pandemic and the past couple years have dropped big questions on my doorstep – Where do I find joy online? What do I have consistent energy for? What has worked and what do I keep trying to force? Am I a needed voice in a conversation or are there better voices? Am I the same person who created this space and this discussion about a soulful approach to getting shit done and navigating life?
This is a quick and messy, Patreon-only flip through of my Savor Life planner from early September, and I wanted to share it before doing an update next week after being in it for a month. I have really found my groove with this system!

Enjoying this altar’s evolution. The midpoint is a moment to take a breath, to look around, and recalibrate as able/needed going into our…
I’ve enjoyed creating an altar that changes, dries up, makes way for new spring blossoms, all of it eventually surrendered to a summer solstice fire when the time comes. Watching it change has offered some grounding.
Returning to a bujo, new Fiona Apple, iOS hacks, Netflix parental controls, Animal Crossing, self-destruct websites, social media detoxing, diamond painting, recent worthwhile articles read, and a few other tidbits from a brain in need of purging.
Just a quick audio recap of everything below in the audio drop above and some hints at things to come. If you want to get Saturday blog post re-caps, make sure you’re on my mailing list over here. Right now, I don’t have a lot of brand new content to offer you, but we do…
I’m holding a lot in my head right now and I know the reasons, but sometimes knowing the why isn’t the same as knowing the how of changing it. In the absence of one giant, coherent, life-changing post to offer, I did what helps me on paper when my head is cluttered and I just need to purge: a brain dump. This is an overview of how I’m coping, what I’m thinking, and all the other things I had floating in my brain.
I snagged one of these for cost of shipping recently and took the opportunity to take another look at a planner I haven’t investigated in a while. Passion Planner has been around for a long time and it’s popular, especially with those who have a lot of appointments to manage.
Quarantine prompted a reclaiming of a space in my home that is just mine (pics below). I’m fortunate to have the room to do this, and I’m grateful, because it’s turning into a space that keeps me grounded even when I’m not in it, because I know it’s there. I also updated this used cabinet…
My cactus is blooming again and it was a lovely surprise this week. Thankful for the space being held weekly in the Soul Circle calls right now. This week’s pages from Boundaries & Protection came together in ways that I’m still digesting and really needed in order to feel more settled in the reality of right now.
