Women’s Questers…Here’s to You…Fabulous You!

When I was in Costa Rica, I wrote about the surfer boys. And, truthfully, they were worth writing about. OMG…they were beautiful. But, I really need to write about the girls..women…goddesses.…on that trip. It was a Women’s Quest, after all. It was all about us and exploring what it is like to be women among […]

F**k It, I’m Doing This

I didn’t sleep well last night. I’m leaving Costa Rica today. My Women’s Quest retreat is finished. Well, I still have a few cups of coffee to drink, some goodbyes to say and some tears to shed. I know from my retreat in March, I will be processing my insights from this trip for awhile. […]

Another Voice: Yellowstone, Pt. 2-Blessings

So, if my summer experience at Yellowstone was so challenging, just why exactly do I want to return? Simple…all the blessings I received. They started with my 1650-mile drive out there.

Forward:  KJ here. You know those times when you’re wondering why in the world you agreed to do something? That would be now for me.

Insomnia–ugh….

When God Shows Up, He Shows Out

There are times in my life when I feel like I’m living in some kind of fairy tale. This is one of those times. I am absolutely spinning from a fabulous weekend at my college homecoming where I reconnected with people I hadn’t seen in 30 years. It was really fun, and I found out […]

Baby, Tell Me Like It Is: Passive Aggressive Behavior

One of my favorite put downs ( to receive) is when someone passive aggressively tells me that the reason he/she never answers my text, calls, smoke signals or other forms of contact is “I’m not a slave to my technology.” Oh, and I am? I don’t have a life outside my technology. Really?? This is […]

Mourning the Loss of the Newspaper

This morning I read the Dallas Morning News at breakfast. I’m on the road traveling for business, and I have the luxury of someone else preparing my breakfast and coffee, so I have time to read the paper. I don’t subscribe to the newspaper anymore. Shhhhhhhh…..please don’t tell my Daddy. I’d be disowned. We are […]
