He was disappointed to hear the ritual idea was “women all over the world self cultivating at the same time to make it rain in the West.” Women for the win. No dudes this time.
“Oh well,” said Jim.
We are living in difficult times. The air quality where I live in Bend is hovering around 500 when the cut off for “hazardous” is 350. Central Oregon’s covered with the heavy smoke from huge wildfires. We’re staying inside. Driving to Bellatazza for coffee. No Drake Park walk. Staying out of each other's way in the house.
The situation is impacting me in profound ways. I feel frustrated about staying inside. And grateful for a house to stay in. I’m frustrated by being around family so much. And grateful that my family is safe.
I’m mourning the loss of life and so much majesty and beauty. I’m grateful for the beauty still standing. #Breitenbushlodge
I adore blue skies, dry weather, and heat. And I know what climate change has done here in Oregon.
Our environment - indoors and outside - impacts us in big and small ways. One of my clients is going stir crazy with the COVID, the smoke, the kids “starting school,” the challenges of living without ONE SHRED OF PRIVACY. How is she supposed to keep sane during times like this? Let alone feel sexy enough to want to get naked with her husband?
People want to run away. To escape their homes. To divorce their lives. To end up in a villa in Sayulita on the coast of Mexico with a sexy lover, margaritas flowing, no responsibilities. Nothing but freedom. Pleasure. Ease.
It’s the truth for so many people right about now.
Make it stop. Let me go. I need out.
If this is your reality, I hear you, honey bunny.
I'm hosting a Body Shame Release party in my Love and Intimacy group on FB. It's an amazing sisterhood and I'm excited to share how we can release the shame around our body/sensuality/appearance.
This is the real deal, no "light a candle" fluff. Join us!
